Paintings by Neil Wilkins

September 4 - October 29, 2015

Mesosphere, by Neil WilkinsClinton-based artist Neil Wilkins will exhibit his paintings in the Meeting Room Gallery during the months of September and October. 

Wilkins says of his work:

Throughout the world, circles are revered as powerful symbols that communicate an innate awareness and connection to our surroundings. Circles are universal; they emerge as the first recognizable shape drawn by children from every culture and remain intricately woven through our experiences. At the grandest and smallest scales, circular forms provide a path to comprehension of natural order and offer insight into our existence and potential.

Both my curiosity and background in teaching science are enduring influences. I incorporate fluid dynamics, geological formations, phase change, fractal analysis, ecology, physical optics and wave properties as reference points in my work. My interpretations take shape by seeking new perspectives and capturing moments of transition. By deliberately removing a sense of absolute scale, I allow microscopic and macroscopic interpretations to exist simultaneously.

An artist’s reception will be held on Saturday, October 3 from 2-4 p.m.


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.
