New Paintings at 45 Church Street (Former Paper Source)

The Art of Spontaneity

These paintings were created using an intuitive and spontaneous process. The art is done quickly with no preconceived idea of what will be painted.  Painting in this way is filled with surprises and discovery much like writing in a journal -- the focus is on the process of expression rather than the product. This creative process is available to all people whether they consider themselves artistic or not. Please enjoy this art in the same spirit in which it was created and connect with its playfulness and sense of discovery.

D’Ann Hansen lives in Wellesley and has been creating art all her life. She teaches both art and yoga in the Greater Boston area. She also leads creative workshops and retreats in the Berkshires.   For upcoming programs please contact her at:

Quilt Exhibit in Wellesley Square (next to Boloco)


 G. Wong
G's love for fabric and color inspired her to create quilts. Her introduction to the quilting world started from an adult community class in 2005. G started creating art quilts after exhausting bed quilts for friends and family. She initially focused on hand appliqued and hand quilted Hawaiian style quilts then evolved to designing her own multi-faceted quilts, with fabric motivating her choice of pallet.
