Artist's Statement by Maggie Carney

I fell in love with drawing and painting as a child; however, as an adult, life became very busy for me as a social worker raising a family, and there seemed to be very little time for art work.

As I got closer to retirement age, I found I was drawing and painting more frequently. I am now retired and I find the more I paint, the more peace and joy I feel.

Gallery Exhibition: Beauty is in the Details, mixed media works by Jane Cowles

Tuesday Aug 1, 2017 Thursday Aug 31, 2017

For the month of August, the Library presents Beauty is in the Details, mixed media works by Jane Cowles.

An Artist's Reception will be held on Sunday, August 6th, from 2 - 4 PM.

Beauty is in what you see. It is not an adjective to describe an object. Beauty is a call to action. Some will look, but not everyone will see this intangible standard we call beauty. Some will be distracted, others stuck, but few will see those little details that make all the difference between ordinary and extraordinary.

Every piece in this exhibit has beauty hidden in details. Whether it is a particular hue on the underside of a leaf, the inside of a flower or a shadow.

-Jane Cowles
