Reception for artist Virginia Hill to be held on Sunday

Winter Island Light, Salem (2012), by Virginia Hill

Virginia Hill, a Danvers artist, is exhibiting her watercolors in the Northshore UU Church meeting room through June 30. An artist’s reception will be held at the church on Sunday, June 17, from 1:30 to 4 p.m.

Hill’s award-winning watercolors are inspired by and celebrate the natural beauty of Boston’s North Shore and Cape Ann — from lighthouses and beautiful white sandy beaches to lobster buoys, granite quarries, and flourishing flowers and gardens.

She is a past president of the Danvers Art Association and currently is a watercolor instructor at the Danvers Senior Center. She founded the Virginia Hill Gallery in Rockport in 2000, and is a member of many local and regional art associations.
