Wintergreen Arts Center is hosting the creative work of local artist, Ashland native Lindsey Cyr during the month of May.

Cyr's Opening Reception will be held on May 4, from 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm, during the First Friday Downtown Art Walk.

Born in Presque Isle, Lindsey Cyr was raised in Ashland, Maine.  She is a mixed-media artist who crafts in clay, wood working, and acrylics.

Lindsey is the youngest of a close-knit family who strongly supports her to push her boundaries and follow her heart.

“Being so close to my family members, I use many of my life experiences as motivation for my artwork,” said Cyr.

The most recent event expressed in her art is the passing of her father last autumn.

“My father was my idol and biggest fan,” Cyr said.  “With the struggle of such a major loss, I pressed my emotions and grief into a collaboration of pieces to reflect upon my desire to create my own business.”

Cyr is supported not only by friends and family but also by her loving husband Kyle and their young son Thomas.

Refreshments will be served and the event is free and open to the public.
