Virtual Show with works by Shannon Slattery:
Artist Statement: These paintings are inspired by the landscape around my summer home in Maine, the rhythm of the trunks and the rugged terrain. The trees cling to the ground, struggling to hold on, and they represent to me the connection to the earth and nature that is essential.
Virtual Show with works by Dan Pinnolis.
Artist Statement: I initially began this portrait series while backpacking alone through Central America. At the time, I was feeling lonely and anxious and thought drawing might make me more approachable to strangers. My plan for meeting and sparking conversations with people did not ultimately end up working but, I found an unexpected gift within the drawing. Hyper focusing on creating detailed representations of people became a meditative process for me and enabled me to ease my anxiety. It worked so well, that I continue this practice to present day.
Keep in mind our Teen Gallery for when the library reopens to the public. Currently on view is a delightful show with works by students from both Newton North and Newton South High Schools!
Printmaking by Newton High School Students, Teen Area: Each year as part of their course of study, Newton’s high school students from both North and South engage in a printmaking project. Printmaking as an art form has been around since the 15th century and has deep artistic roots. Despite its traditional role, it is still practiced today and variations on the classic medium abound. An ensemble of student musicians will delight us with chamber music as part of the festivities. Refreshments will be served. The public is welcome to attend this special event. The show will be on view through spring 2020.
The library wishes to extend its gratitude to Eric Blomster of Abraxis Framing Co. in Newton, who generously provided the frames cost-free, and to members of the Newton Art Association who hung the show. (Image by: C. Murray)
