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."
