Todd Voss, known for his pastoral landscapes, Hans Schaub's interpretation of the northern lights and Andrew Evansen's watercolor "On the Fence" are sure to please art lovers, as will Suzanne Thiesfeld's "First Snowfall at the Farm." Elaine Sivertson is showing the exquisite "Winter Shadows" and "Boxcar Islands - Winter." (She's the wife of North Shore artist Howard Sivertson.)
