Exhibit - Paula Lennard: Animal Spirits

Wednesday Apr 1, 2015 Thursday Apr 30, 2015

Artist's Reception: Sunday, April 12th, 2:00 - 4:00 PM

In celebration of Earth Month, the Library is pleased to exhibit the drawings and paintings of Piermont resident, Paula Lennard. Speaking about her work, Ms. Lennard states, "I am delighted that the showing of "Animal Spirits” is occurring during Earth Month. I’ve always been an animal lover, and the importance of all species to the health and well-being of our planet is becoming increasingly obvious. Perhaps this is why I have chosen this past year to focus my work on animals.I find their physical variety and their various personalities equally amazing, and I attempt to convey through my painting and drawing what I sense of their spirit and beauty.”

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."
