Exhibit - Artwork by John VandenOever

Wednesday Oct 1, 2014 Friday Oct 31, 2014

John VandenOever: Observed and Reported - A Retrospective

Artist's Reception: Sunday, October 5th, 2:00 - 4:00 PM

John VandenOever, pastor of the Piermont Reformed Church, is also a musician, songwriter, and visual artist. “I studied music before theology, and while at my first parish in Flushing, I studied drawing and painting at Queens College. The common thread running through all this is, I think, attentive observation of the world, and reporting on that observation in creative ways. There are mysterious and surprising things to be seen all around us, sometimes beneath the surface, sometimes obvious and yet unnoticed. Some of these surprises only become visible when they are captured, portrayed, or named.”

VandenOever’s work will be exhibited at the Library for the month of October. The exhibit will include portrait, still life, and landscape paintings, prints and drawings, and photographs.

Exhibit - Watercolor Paintings by Cecilia Lotse

Saturday Nov 1, 2014 Sunday Nov 30, 2014

For the month of November, the watercolors of Piermont resident Cecilia Lotse will be on display in the Library's gallery space. The show is titled, "The Coast of Maine," and as Cecilia says, “It is the untamed nature of the coast that speaks to me.”

An opening reception for the artist will be held on Sunday, November 2nd from 2:00 - 4:00 PM. All are welcome to attend.

Cecilia Lotse was born 1950 in Uppsala, Sweden and moved to the United States in 1966. After a long and distinguished career in the service of the United Nations, primarily with Unicef, Cecilia turned her attention to art.

Watercolor is her medium of preference. After a career with a highly analytical focus, Cecilia’s art tends towards the romantic and to a contemplation of mood, towards identifying the sources of beauty that feed her soul, the greater context in which we all live, and to the visual experiences that arrest her. Her work is mainly studio based, using her own photographic images as reference.
