Bellinger, of Sampson Bog Studio, creates paintings and furnishings that are inspired by his observation of wild and quiet places.
Bellinger will discuss how nature has influenced his work as both a painter and a furniture artisan. Information and inspiration for Bellinger's work is derived through a lifestyle of exploring backwoods, ponds, lakes and mountain trails, a news release said. Foraging for raw materials is an opportunity for him to study natural forms and color, the release said.
