A reception was held for artist Dorothy Riester Oct. 22 at the New Woodstock Free Library to open her "pre-retrospective" exhibit that will run through Nov. 30.
Friends and admirers of the well-known artist and founder of the Stone Quarry Hill Art Park praised the library venue for Riester's sculpture.
"This collection is a preview of Riester's sculptural maquettes, with a major retrospective of her work opening at the Art Park May 1, 2011," said Joseph Scala, executive director of the Art Park.
The exhibit is open to the public, free of charge.
