Arcadian Concert

New work by Gail Erwin

September 3 - October 30, 2014 High, Clear Note by Gail Erwin

Maynard-based artist, Gail Erwin will open the 2014-15 art season at the library with her exhibition, “Arcadian Concert.”

Erwin says of her art: "The method of layering in Arcadian Concert draws attention to the complexity and enigma of nature.  Printing photographs in an antique process (Van Dyke Brown), focuses attention on the sublime, resulting in subtle interpretations of idealized landscapes. The images of Arcadian, bucolic landscapes enfold and envelop the viewer. There is a sense of longing, a sense of being hidden amongst the trees. Of finding an aerie or sanctuary in the foliage."

There will be an reception on Sunday, September 21 from 2:30-4:30. Ms. Erwin will be on hand to explain the Van Dyke Printing process and how she develops her images.


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.
