Opening Reception: Sunday, July 10, 2:00 - 4:00PM
For the month of July, the Library will exhibit the portraits of Nyack resident Lauren Rudolph in The Art of Connection Through Portraiture. Created in a variety of media from pencil to charcoal to watercolor- and often at the rate of one a day- Rudolph's portraits are fresh and expressive. Rudolph's subject matter is diverse- family, friends, figures in the news, figures from history, artists in every field. Yet the portaits are united by her distinct style and and desire to capture the essence of her subjects.
As Rudolph writes, "I create to connect. I connect to myself through artistic expression and I connect to others through telling their stories and sharing the vision. Art is a vehicle for growth and brings me closer every day to essence of who I am. I have always chosen portraiture as my subject matter because I am fascinated by the human spirit. There are so many layers to see and to work through. I am committed to my art and I am inspired to use my creative voice."
