After earning a BFA from the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Frenkel did further study in murals.  Her mural work can be seen in nine public libraries in Massachusetts and Rhode Island.  More recently she has been working on mosaics, and was a fellow in the Massachusetts Cultural Council STARS program where she taught students of all ages.  Readers may have seen Frenkel’s illustrations in Andre The Famous Harbor Seal.   She has also had prizewinning stories in Cricket Magazine,  and her book Libby and the Cat was a KIND honor book for the National Association for Humane and Environmental Education.

Frenkel says of her work:  “Characters of the Everyday populate my paintings, the people one might see on the subway, in school-yards or shopping malls. I am fascinated by the unspoken dialogue between people, the language of posture and expression, and by the small moments of drama in daily life. The threatening bully, the weariness of the commuter, the joyous abandon of an unguarded moment; these are the main focus of my work. I believe that these moments have universal elements that transcend their regional inspiration and make them accessible to all people.”

The exhibition will be on view in the Library Meeting Room Gallery from July 6th through August 30. 


Exhibitions are free and handicapped accessible. Exhibitions in the library meeting room are available for viewing whenever the library is open and the room is not in use for a meeting. Please check the library Events Calendar for availability.
