Art Exhibit by Nicholas Pyle and Grace McGuire
Nicholas Pyle is the grandson of long-time resident Somerset resident Lucy Freeman on Dorset Avenue. For the past several years he has been taking painting and other art classes at the Yellow Barn Studio in Glen Echo, and more recently has started creating commissioned painting for neighborhood families.
Nicholas' passion is cars. In a recent art show submission, Nicholas wrote, "Painting came to me as a way I could create the beautiful colors that make up and surround objects, one of these being cars. Why do I like cars? Well, like paintings they can create emotions and feelings that are hard to put in words. How you can just stare at the wheel arches of a 9152 Alfa Romeo Disco Volante for hours".
Nicholas lives in Cabin John with his mom and past Somerset resident Alexandra Freeman, dad Doug Pyle, sister Taylor Pyle, dog Jasmine, rabbit Cheerio, 3 fish, a frog, a 1971 MGB convertible and a 1971 VW Beetle Convertible.
Grace McGuire loves to work with many mediums including watercolor, pencil and collage. She enjoys creating theater sets and costumes. She lives in Cabin John with her parents Sarah Craven and Matt McGuire, twin brother Jack, beloved dog Daisy, and less-beloved chinchilla Kiwi.
She dedicates this show to her big sister Anna who is attending Davidson College and her grandmothers Nicole McGuire and Dorothy Craven.
They are both freshmen at Walt Whitman High School.
