Watercolors, glass art, porcelain and more are featured in the Westwood Artists Exhibit. Held at the library, the exhibit resides in the lobby. The central location gives generous light to the pieces and allows patrons to appreciate great local art every day.
Detailed porcelain discs by Gunyoung Kim recreate memories of loved ones. The portraits etched onto the discs in a stippling pattern are embellished with gorgeous textured flowers. Local photographs of Block Island from Karen Cagan transport the viewer to a calm space amidst daily chaos. Cagan also captures beautiful vistas of Hale and Buckmaster Pond. The composition of the photos is alluring, the skies are vibrant and clear.
Maureen Obey’s oil paintings are just as beautiful from afar as they are up close. Details in water ripples and textured rocks draw the viewer into the scene. Elidi Chan’s whimsical watercolors welcome spring with bright hues and detailed cuddly animals. “A Little Bit of Spring” depicts a small field mouse clutching a dandelion.
Jewelers by Marilyn Brier and Kathy O’Donnell feature fused glass and origami paper, respectively. Quilts, mixed media collages, and ceramics round out the exhibit. With something for everyone, this collaborative exhibit showcases artists in numerous forms around town.
The Westwood Artists Exhibit will run through March 31 at the Westwood public library.
