Artist of the Month

 
Meet the Whistler House Museum of Art's January Artist of the Month:
 
Victoria Voner
 
 
 
Victoria (Tory) Voner is from the Boston area and started painting and creating at an early age. In her work, she expresses her love of the mountains in Vermont and the oceans of the east coast. Traveling to most of the National Parks in the United States was a family endeavor that blossomed an attraction and love of nature. Even in those early days, Tory had an understanding of the need for respect and preservation of all of the beautiful sights and landscapes this country had to offer. 
Over the past 5 years, Tory has tunneled her focus into her love of painting by seeking where her passions lie… Escaping the chaos of the world around her, she has come full circle by returning back to nature, and introspectively reflecting on herself and her emotions. Using the values of Impressionism's perspective, colors, and textures are all of the tools she utilizes, challenging herself emotionally in a different way with each and every painting. Acrylic is her medium of choice, and the larger the canvases she selects, the more expression of space she has to utilize and share.
She went to school at Umass Dartmouth for Illustration, which included a strong foundations program, along with many special courses in painting. She then worked for an event decor company as a designer, while learning, instructing herself, and advancing herself on the job. She now works at MIT Lincoln Laboratory, as a specialist designer. Tory also has obtained a graphic design certificate from the Massachusetts College of Art and Design. She currently is a member of the Whistler Museum of Art, the Brush Gallery, and the Arts League of Lowell.
 
The WHMA is excited to share with you a collection of Tori's works. If you are interested in purchasing any of these works of art, contact the Whistler House Museum of Art at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or call

November 2021

 
Meet the Whistler House Museum of Art's November Artist of the Month:
 
Monique Sakellarios
 
 
 
At a very young age, Monique Sakellarios knew she wanted to be an artist. Born in Egypt, she took art classes for several years at the Leonardo Da Vinci School of Art in Cairo. Her teacher told her, "You paint like Monet". Since then, people have often told her the same thing. Monique is inspired by his subject matter and style, but does not paint like Monet. Like all impressionists, Monet painted on a white canvas. However, Monique primes her canvas with cadmium red. Painting on red changes all the colors that are applied over the red, but it gives her paintings a flow. Thus, the viewer gets the impression that the light is coming from "behind" the painting.
 
Monique first exhibited her work at the Whistler House Museum of Art as part of an "amateur show". At the time, her style was realistic and her focus centered around portraits. A few paintings later, she decided to switch to her true love: Impressionism. A few years ago, she added abstracts and semi-abstracts to her repertoire. She used to believe that artists painted abstracts because they could not paint, and was surprised to discover that painting abstracts are actually very difficult. With no memory, no reference, no image, it is all pure imagination!
 
Monique’s first solo exhibit as a professional artist was also at the Whistler House Museum of Art. She was very encouraged at that time to enter national competitions. Since then, she has competed nationally and has won countless national awards. As a result, she was invited to become a signature member of the Oil Painters of America, a national organization dedicated to the preservation of representational art. Becoming a signature member of Oil Painters of America gave her the permission to add the initials "OPA" after her signature. Later on, she was also invited to become a signature member of the National Oil & Acrylic Painters Society.
 
Along with countless galleries and shows, Monique's work has been exhibited in the following museums throughout the U.S.: 
Whistler House Museum, Lowell, MA
Water Mill Museum, Hamptons, NY
Fitchburg Art Museum, Fitchburg, MA
Gilcrease Museum, Tulsa, OK
Russell Museum, Great Falls, Montana
International Museum of Contemporary Masters of Fine Art, San Antonio, TX
Newport Art Museum, Newport, RI
 
Monique has also been invited by the French Ministry of Culture and Foreign Affairs to exhibit her work in Andrezieux-Boutheon, France.
She was interviewed twice on Channel 9 Four News, Manchester, NH. Her television educational programs were featured on Chelmsford Community TV, Peabody Community TV, Lynnfield Community TV Channel 17,
and Channel 8 Chelmsford, Lowell, and Billerica

September 2021

Meet the Whistler House Museum of Art's September Artist of the Month:
 
Suzanne Hodge
 
 
Suzanne Hodge is a Boston area-based oil painter whose favorite subject is cityscapes. Nighttime reflections in the city often evoke a feeling of mystery and possibility that are the inspiration for many of her art pieces. 
 
Hodge's first foray into painting was in 2011 on a three-month stay in the market town of Tralee, Ireland. Hodge and her sister rented a little stone cottage on a narrow country road and would ride their bikes out to neighboring towns every day. Nearly every evening they would walk down to the bay on the road that passed by their cottage. It was during this extended visit that Hodge bought some paints and a canvas and created her first piece of artwork.
 
Years earlier, in her first semester at UNH, she had taken Drawing I and II but went on to receive a degree in mathematics. 
 
Upon her return to the states, Suzanne enrolled in several courses at the New Hampshire Institute of Art (now The Institute of Art and Design at NE College) and took a studio class with Patrick McKay, who helped her to develop her current and evolving artistic style. 
 
In 2013, Hodge rented a studio space at Western Avenue Studios (WAS) in Lowell, Massachusetts. WAS is home to the largest collection of artists on the east coast. Over 300 artists of varying media have a studio or loft at this unique place. You can find Hodge nearly every day painting in her studio. She mostly uses photo references for her paintings, but will often venture out into the city to do sketches of a subject that catch her eye before completing a painting back in the studio.

August 2021

Meet the Whistler House Museum of Art's August Artist of the Month:
 
Janice Jones
 
 
Janice’s work has been published in the Quilters Newsletter magazine, and has won many awards in fine art exhibitions and textile art shows, including “Best in Show”.

Her quilting roots go back to her great aunt who was a Mill Girl during the early 1900’s at the Bates Textile Mill in Lewiston, Maine. Following family tradition, her journey as a quilter began when she was a child.

Janice’s passion has evolved to creating art quilts, and after several years of extensive studies with prominent teachers in this field, she decided to augment her training by becoming a privately tutored art student, and studied the work of the Masters.

She feels that working with textiles allows her to push boundaries and create a story that conveys a sense of tactile warmth and character to her work. Her intention is to draw the viewer in and invite them to touch and feel the energy of her quilts. She endeavors to add texture, depth, and movement to her work. She likes to use color to create drama, and dimension, and often applies fibers and embellishments or hand painted elements for added interest.

Janice lives in Methuen, MA with her husband, David, who is also an artist. Together they give lectures, trunk shows, and workshops to Art Groups and Quilt Guilds.
 
The WHMA is excited to share with you a collection of Janice's work. If you are interested in purchasing any of these pieces, contact the Whistler House Museum of Art at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or call
