Carvings & Sculptures
in the lower level Solarium Glass Case
April 17 - June 15, 2018
Watertown resident Paul Angiolillo studied wood carving with Boston-based master sculptor Joseph Wheelwright and stone carving with Peter Smith in Princeton NJ. He creates smaller indoor sculptures, outdoor pieces, and some furniture art. Angiolillo works in wood, stone, and other natural materials, as well as repurposed objects. Experimenting with both representational and abstract styles, he gravitates toward organic forms--plant, animal, and human-like figures--as well as whimsically reinterpreting familiar objects. His art can be viewed in various solo and group exhibits in the Greater Boston Area, outdoor sculpture shows, and the shops at the DeCordova Sculpture Garden & Museum, Lincoln MA, Fuller Craft Museum Brockton MA, and Arsenal Center for the Arts, Watertown MA.

Acton resident Ashok Boghani will exhibit his photographs at the library during the months of May and June. He will exhibit both color and black and white photos.
Ashok is a retired business consultant and an amateur photographer with a distinctive eye. Although he has travelled far to get his shots, he still finds beauty and interest in one if his favorite locations: the cranberry bog in Carlisle. Rather than take the usual travelogue photos, Ashok looks at the whole but takes the parts and comes out with abstractions. His landscapes take on an otherworldly look.
Ashok says of his work: “I try to capture beauty in what I see, whether it is a stormy sea in the Arctic, shadows if people walking on cobblestones, or delicate plants reflected in icy water. The common theme is simplicity and minimalism.”
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.
