Meet The Artists



Jessica Hachmeister
Friday July 22nd

Jessica Hachmeister is a local artist recently relocated from Seattle who works in large, acrylic paintings often incorporating charcoal and pastel into her paintings. She prefers abstract representations based on large dominant shapes which she often distributes across multiple canvases.

She lived most of her early life abroad in such diverse cities as Havana, Mexico City, Heidelberg and Rome, graduating from The American School in Lugano, Switzerland and pursuing her interest in art into college.  Advanced studies began at California Western University and later continued at Villa Mercede in Florence, the University of Cincinnati, Miami University, Boston University, the University of Washington, Cornish Institute of Art, and Pratt Fine Art Center. 

Jessica has been a professional artist for over 30 years showing her work primarily in the Seattle and Boston metropolitan areas.  She has operated in her own studio in the Belltown Art District of Seattle and currently works out of her studio near the Parker River and the Newbury Lower Green. 



Pat Forbes
Friday July 29th

Pat Forbes. is an accomplished and award winning painter whose art has been influenced by years of travel to unique and remote places around the globe. Her work is represented in private collections both in the United States and internationally. Primarily an abstract artist, she has received recognition for her ability to interpret the essence and emotion a landscape can evoke. Inspiration for her paintings springs from the world she sees around her. Landscapes large and small engage her. Marshes, beaches, tidal flats and mountain vistas, all with their seemingly random designs, reflect the content that informs her work. Her medium is primarily acrylics and sometimes found objects that provide texture and complexity.



Zsuzsanna Donnell
Friday August 5th

ZsuZsanna Donnell was born in Oxford, England to Hungarian parents and now resides in the US with her husband Tom. It’s not surprising that art is a part of her life as her uncle is a prominent Hungarian artist. ZsuZsanna’s affinity and inspiration for art comes from an adventurous spirit combined with her love of travel, architecture, nature, sometimes even the turbulent storms we encounter in our journey. Enjoying a spontaneous approach to her art style, the results of acrylics/mixed media are vibrant and expressive.

It’s a dance of sorts with not so orchestrated shapes as the painting emerges.  Then again once in awhile it’s just simple and pure.
