Linda Koutoulas is the Artist of the Month for May.
Koutoulas, a 1986 graduate of the Massachusetts College of Art, began her art education at Boston University and has been creating art for as long as she can remember. Her preferred medium is oil paint but she also works in many other mediums and disciplines.
Recently, she created a series of collages, some of which are on display in the mayor’s office. These collages express ideas about modern society.
Koutoulas has shown and sold her work through Creative Haverhill events and is currently continuing her study of painting with Mark Hayden, a Copley Master, in Haverhill.
Koutoulas is the mayor’s administrative assistant.
“This month’s artist, Linda, my assistant, has brought forward a wonderful collection of art to display,” Mayor James Fiorentini said. “We encourage anyone with a brush, a pencil or surface to paint, print or write upon, to contact our office to be considered for Artist of the Month.”
The Haverhill Artist of Month was created by Fiorentini to foster and profile Haverhill’s thriving art community. Haverhill artists interested in being considered for Artist of the Month can submit copies of their work and artist’s statement to the mayor’s office. For more information call 978-374-2300.
