Local Artists Featured in Lynnfield Branch

Our beautifully redesigned 596 Main Street Branch in Lynnfield features a unique art gallery wall showcasing paintings from Lynnfield Art Guild artists. The watercolor artist Beth Aaronson was the first to display her artwork here. In June 2022, another talented watercolor artist named Maryann Trudeau who is a retired Elementary Teacher has filled our gallery wall with her exquisite works of art (available for purchase). When you are visiting our Lynnfield Branch to open an account or apply for a loan, make sure you stop by our "Bringing art to banking" wall.

Maryann Trudeau is a retired Elementary School Teacher who has always had a passionate interest in the Arts and Music. She always shared her love for art and music with her students by including it in her curriculum. When she retired, Maryann had time to advance her passion. She met with a group in Lynnfield and began learning watercolor painting. This group advanced to taking lessons at the Lynnfield Center every week.
