Londonderry resident and artist Elaine Farmer has been honored by representing the White Mountain National Forest in New Hampshire in the national Paint the Parks competition. Her painting, “Huntington Ravine”, was chosen as one of the top 100 entries and will be exhibited countrywide over the next year.

The first exhibit in the Paint the Parks tour will be held at the Jefferson National Expansion Memorial in St. Louis, Missouri. The exhibit will be held in the historic Courthouse from October 8, 2011 through January 9, 2012.

Elaine Farmer owns and manages the White Birch Fine Art Gallery in Londonderry, a small and cozy gallery featuring works from about 16 local artists. Farmer began her artistic journey at the age of 10 when she was given her first set of oil paints. She has studied with a private instructor from Oxford in England, traveled Europe for inspiration, served a president of the Warner Robins Art Association in Georgia for three years, and served as a chairperson for several art shows. Farmer currently focuses the inspirations for her art on New England landscapes. Learn more about Elaine and the Gallery here.
