Travel along “Backroads” with artists Elaine Farmer and Marla J. McCormick in their exhibit at East Colony Fine Arts, 55 S. Commercial St., Manchester, through Saturday, July 27. As a transplant from the Midwest, McCormick, who created the work shown below, titled “Mill Pond Ripples,” found her artistic style traveling the backroads of New England. She is inspired by the mountains, beaches, forests and streams, as well as the 17th-century homes and 18th-century mill buildings. Farmer's artwork, including “Mt. Bernard at Acadia (shown above),” focuses on quiet landscapes as seen both near and far from home. Using brighter-than-life colors, she blends traditional realism with a contemporary impressionistic feeling. A reception is planned for 4 to 8 p.m. Friday, July 12. Regular gallery hours re Tuesday through Fridays from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Saturdays from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. For details, call 621-7400.
