The Albert Wisner Public Library, located at 1 McFarland Dr. in Warwick NY, will host three art exhibits featuring the work of local artists during the month of March. Each artist will offer an opportunity to meet visitors and talk about their creative processes.
Drawing with Robert Wright
Local artist Robert Wright will demonstrate his technique for creating large bold drawings on Sat., Mar. 3 at the Library. The process is accessible to anyone, it is not complicated, and the materials are simple and basic. The artist calls his technique universal drawing because the themes are polycultural and based on world art, dating back to the paleolithic era.
‘Hurt of the Antarctic’
“Hurt of the Antarctic” is part one of a work of historical fiction and fantasy presented in graphic form. It tells the story of Edward Aaron Hurt, a 19th century explorer who led an adventure-filled expedition to the Antarctic Circle in 1883. Twenty fabricated “artifacts,” comprised of drawings, paintings, constructions, and photographs of dioramas form the body of the work, which will be on display in the Library Board Room. Captions and text associated with each piece will provide the narrative thread of the exhibit.
Graphic artist Roger Dowd will be in the Library Board Room on Sat., Mar. 10 at 2 p.m. in the Activity Room to share information about the techniques he used to create the artifacts included in the exhibit.
St. James Camera Club
The St. James Camera Club, of Goshen, NY, will present an exhibit of the best photographs produced by the members over the past year. Photographs will be on exhibit in the Library Gallery. Meet the photographers at an opening reception to be held on Sun., Mar. 11 from 1 to 3 p.m. in the Library’s Community Room.
Windows & Mirrors
Over 40 artists provide their artistic interpretation of the theme, Windows and Mirrors in an exhibit displayed on the main floor of the Library. The exhibit will include oils, watercolors, photography, mixed media, and stained glass works. The artists will be available in the Board Room for a Meet the Artists Reception on Fri., Mar. 16 from 5:30 to 7:45 p.m. Refreshments will be served.
