James, Beth and Ana Aponovich - First Family of Art

James Aponovich, the current N.H. Artist Laureate, and his wife Elizabeth Johannson, both of Hancock, are each in their own way accomplished artists. Now their daughter Ana, a recent college graduate who lives on the Seacoast, is part of the buzz about the Aponovich family. Her vibrant watercolors are getting critical raves. The Sharon Arts Center last year sponsored an Aponovich family exhibition, saying :“Each artist may very well be the most significant and meaningful influence in each other’s work and lives. Their family values are as vital and rich as the art they create.”
