The Stage is Set: Paintings by Marcia Cooper
November 1-December 28, 2013
The evocative oil paintings of Marcia Cooper will be on display in the Library Meeting Room for the months of November and December.
Ms. Cooper has studied and exhibited in the Greater Boston area with work in the deCordova student show, Danforth Museum juried show and the Newton Art Association. She holds a B.S. in Fine Arts from Bridgewater University and has studied painting at the graduate level under Arthur Polansky.
Her paintings draw the viewer in, looking to find what is behind the next level. She says of her work: ”My landscape paintings feature meandering rows of steps gently cascading down walls on imaginary structures. Thinking of these surreal scenes as murals that are painted within gallery spaces, the stage is set for characters to appear in the story of my invention. The intent is to spark the interest of an unseen audience as it is visually lured into the unfolding fabric of the gallery stage.”
The exhibition is free and handicapped accessible. For more information call 978-929-6655.
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.
Birdhouses by Carl Bender
Fifteen hand built birdhouse by Carl Bender are now on display on the upper level of the library. The unaltered wood surfaces are recycled from toolboxes, trunks, produce boxes, and discarded furniture. In addition to the wood, the birdhouses incorporate parts from salvaged vintage toys, tools, household items, and found industrial items, giving each a unqiue and whimsical identity.
