New artist featured in South Branch’s rotating art show


The South Branch of the Peabody Institute Library is continuing its support of local artists with a new showing of watercolors by Massachusetts artist Linda T. Hurd. Twelve examples of her art are now on display in the library, which is located at 78 Lynn St. These paintings will only be on display for a limited time through the spring and are part of her latest “Art for Months” collection. This latest collection is titled “WIRED,” and we are privileged to display the originals of the works that are sold as bound books. “WIRED” uses telephone poles at metaphors for the various ways people think.

Linda Hurd has found writing and painting to be important outlets in living with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). According to Hurd, “Painting helps me honor what I see. Painting with watercolors has helped me learn skills like sitting still, planning ahead and going lightly.” She sees painting as therapeutic and a way to learn something new. Her love of art came early and was influenced by her family and art teachers at Canton High School. She holds a B.A. in Psychology and an M.A. in Writing and Publishing. More examples of her watercolors and captions, as well as more information about the artist, can be found at

The public is invited to view her paintings anytime the South Branch is open. For more information about the paintings, please call (978) 531-3380 or visit the artist’s website. For the South Branch hours or for more information about the Peabody Institute Library, please visit
