Exhibit - Without Memory: New Work by Celeste Morton

Friday May 1, 2015 Saturday May 30, 2015

Celeste Morton, a Brooklyn-based artist who grew up in Piermont and Tappan, will have her oil paintings on display at the Piermont Public Library for the month of May. Her show is entitled, "Without Memory" and the reception will be held Sunday, May 3rd from 2-4 p.m.

Ms. Morton writes about this series of work, "My oil paintings are all based on family photographs, ranging from polaroids depicting childhood moments to adults posing and not posing in different settings. [...] Through my paintings I am communicating the resilience as well as the limitations and ambiguity of memory. The content in my paintings also display moments of childhood innocence, imbued with a sense of the unknown."

Monday Jun 1, 2015 Tuesday Jun 30, 2015

For the month of June, students from Alexis Starke’s Library Art Classes will exhibit work created during their winter and spring sessions. In these free after school classes, young people from grades 1 through 9 have explored a variety of art media and styles. Through this show, they will also learn about mounting an exhibit of their work and celebrating with a reception.

Students have found inspiration from art history and from the beautiful village of Piermont and the Hudson River. Included in the exhibit will be "story quilts" inspired by Faith Ringgold; cut paper collages inspired by Henri Matisse; self portraits inspired by the Fauvists; and papier mache totem poles inspired by the Native Peoples of the Pacific Northwest.

An opening reception will be held on Sunday, June 7th, from 2:00 - 3:00 PM. All are welcome. Come see what our talented young artists have been up to!
