Gallery Exhibition: New Work in Oil Pastel by Rena M. Berger

Monday Jan 1, 2018 Wednesday Jan 31, 2018

Opening Reception, Sunday, January 7th, 2 - 4 PM

For the month of January, the Dennis P. McHugh Piermont Public Library presents New Work in Oil Pastel by Rena M. Berger. Ms. Berger is a long-time Piermont resident and active member of the community. Her abstract work is alive with color and movement.

Ms. Berger describes her work as follows:

My work is intuitive.

I love line and color.

In using line, color and shapes, unexpected relationships happen.

I think that sometimes my work relates to geology, how I imagine earth before we were here.

It takes time looking at my work to see the relationships that are there.

My work is also about the imperfections of my process.

A reception for the artist will be held on Sunday, January 7th, from 2 - 4 PM. All are welcome.

Gallery Exhibition: Kathy Kearney: Reflections

Thursday Feb 1, 2018 Wednesday Feb 28, 2018

Artist's Reception: Sunday, February 4th, 2 - 4 PM

For the month of February, the Dennis P. McHugh Piermont Public Library presents Kathy Kearney: Reflections. There will be a reception for the artist on Sunday, February 4th, from 2 - 4 PM. All are welcome.

Kearney describes her work, "I have been studying privately with artist Jackie Shatz for about 15 years. During that time I have explored many mediums, including clay sculpture and acrylic and oil painting. I have worked both abstractly and figuratively. Recently I have been using family photographs, as well as the photographs of such well known photographers as WeeGee and Dorothea Lange as my sources. My intent is not to copy but to use them as models for an imaginative and painterly approach. I am interested in the way the setting, or landscape works compositionally with the expressive and gestural qualities of the figures. I try to use color, not literally, but in a visually intuitive way. My life work as a therapist contributes to the choice, insight and content of the these figurative works. I don't know where I'm going, but I'm getting there."
