The "Art on Loan" program displays the works of local artists on meeting room walls in Barnstable Town Hall.   Paintings and photographs by Mara Araujo are on display in Barnstable Town Hall, now through end of September in Barnstable Town Hall Hearing Room and Selectmen’s Conference Room.  The exhibition is open to the public.  Town Hall is open Monday through Friday, 8:30am-4:30pm (except State and Federal holidays) and frequently opens during evening hours for scheduled meetings.  Town Hall is located at 367 Main Street, Hyannis. 

ABOUT THE ARTIST:
Mara Araujo is a painter, graphic designer, and photographer who was born in a little town in Minas Gerais, Brazil. It was there that her love for the visual arts began via the stick figures she would scribble in her mother’s recipe books. Now her work spans many different subjects and settings, although her passion is still portraiture. Her work is as varied as her travels highlighting the grandeur and beauty of both the urban and the suburban, the expected and the unexpected. Common elements of her work include portraiture, architecture, and nature. Her mediums are similarly varied ranging from graphite, to acrylics, to digital paint, to digital film. She has exhibited in both the Cotuit Center for the Arts and the Provincetown Art Association and Museum. She has also designed and/or painted two murals for the town of Barnstable. “What’s Your Story?” is located in Barnstable High School and “Welcome” is found at the Hyannis Bismore Park.

Mara is a fierce proponent of time travel—to travel through extraordinary places, narratives, and perspectives—all while looking at a single still image.
