Southern New Hampshire University’s Pantano Gallery is hosting “Five Years of Evolution,” an exhibit of Aline H. Lotter’s paintings, from May 3 to June 30.

“Five Years of Evolution” will feature a variety of oil landscapes created outdoors as well as some mimicked from photographs, and a sampling of people and/or animals painted from life with at least one reconstructed from a photograph. Lotter will happily entertain guesses of which paintings are recreated from photographs. Guesses should be directed to her via e-mail at alotter@mac.com.

“Five Years of Evolution” depicts Lotter’s journey to reawaken her inner artist. She predominately paints landscapes with the occasional animal or human model. In the French tradition of paining “en plein air,” the majority of Lotter’s landscapes are painted or at least started outdoors. She has incorporated her love for photography into her artwork and sometimes paints from photos rather than real-life objects or scenery.

Lotter, a tax lawyer, has degrees from Cornell University, Suffolk University Law School and Boston University Law School. Although she has taken painting and drawing courses at both Cornell University and the Boston Museum School, Lotter lacks formal artistic training. This did not stop her from deciding to once again begin to pursue her artistic venture in 2005.

In May 2007 she began to offer her work at exhibitions and for sale and has since been featured at the Gallery on 100 Market Street in Portsmouth, N.H., the NH Institute of Art, the University of North Carolina Pembroke and SNHU and has regular exhibits at the White Birch Gallery in Londonderry, N.H. Lotter is also a juried member of the Oil Painters of America, an officer of the Women’s Caucus for Art (NH) and a member of the NH Plein Air artists and serves on the board of the Sierra Club.

The Pantano Gallery is located in Southern New Hampshire University's Shapiro Library and is open Mondays through Thursday from 8 a.m. to midnight, Friday from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m., Saturday from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. and Sundays from noon to midnight. Please call the university's Shapiro Library at 603.645.9605 for gallery information.
