HYANNIS, MA - The "Art on Loan" program displays the works of local artists on meeting room walls in Barnstable Town Hall.   Paintings by George Booth are on display in 2nd floor meeting rooms in Barnstable Town Hall, now through March 27, 2020.

George Booth always had an interest in art but not beyond a sketch book. A Barnstable High School graduate, it was not until his late twenties that he became serious with his art career. He studied painting at the University of New Hampshire with Craig Hood and Melvin Zabarsky and received his BFA in 1987.  He moved to Cambridge, Massachusetts where he “painted in obscurity” until moving to the Cape in 1999.  He studied under Sarah Holl, who provided a great foundation and continued in Provincetown to engage in an extended study with Vicky Tomayko and Jim Peters. Booth says of his style, “I am looking at my surroundings and I am seeing the landscape. My painting is what happens for me between looking and seeing.  I paint to live and live to paint.” 

The artwork on display is located in the James H. Crocker Hearing Room and the Selectmen’s Conference Room, 2nd floor in Barnstable Town Hall, 367 Main Street, Hyannis.  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.  Free parking in the Town Hall parking lot.
