Exhibit - Paula Lennard: Animal Spirits

Wednesday Apr 1, 2015 Thursday Apr 30, 2015

Artist's Reception: Sunday, April 12th, 2:00 - 4:00 PM

In celebration of Earth Month, the Library is pleased to exhibit the drawings and paintings of Piermont resident, Paula Lennard. Speaking about her work, Ms. Lennard states, "I am delighted that the showing of "Animal Spirits” is occurring during Earth Month. I’ve always been an animal lover, and the importance of all species to the health and well-being of our planet is becoming increasingly obvious. Perhaps this is why I have chosen this past year to focus my work on animals.I find their physical variety and their various personalities equally amazing, and I attempt to convey through my painting and drawing what I sense of their spirit and beauty.”
