Alumna Cynthia Woehrle Update

January 10, 2013

This past year and a half, alumna Cynthia Woehrle ’93 has been focusing on the moon as a subject. Fascinated by the often contradictory symbolism, this subject has produced continual inspiration for her. Tarot Moon was the one that started it all and is now in a private collection, all the others are on view in the Visceral Murmurs exhibit at Fruitlands Museum in Harvard, MA, which was extended through December 2012. The exhibit featured six new works by Woehrle, along with artists Brian Burris and Scott Erb. For more information, visit

“What compels me most to paint is the desire to wrap myself around a feeling. It is my practice to associate lights and darks in atmosphere with both positive and negative implications.  I have always been fascinated by very subtle tonal changes, the subjects of the landscape and sky allow me to explore such tonal changes in the atmosphere, light, fog and shadow.” – Read more here….

Woehrle’s work will also be included in the member exhibit These Four Walls at ArtsWorcester, and features over 20 photographs of interiors. She submitted the photograph (below) that was part of the 2010 Things We Project exhibit. “That was a projected show,” said Woehrle. “…so this photograph has never been printed before, and am really pleased with how it came out–thank you LB Wheaton.” The 8×10 framed print is $65.

Local folk band Neptune’s Car featured Woehrle’s painting, “Going Home Mass Pike”, on the cover of their newest album, Letters From The Road. They have been touring this album and have show dates coming up in NH, MI, OH, NY and MD. Their tracks have gotten air play across the country as well as in Canada, Germany, UK, The Netherlands and New Zealand. Find out more and listen at:
