Dorothy Riester art featured at New Woodstock library

New Woodstock Free Library news

The New Woodstock Free Library will host "Dorothy Riester, a Pre-retrospective" Oct. 18 through Nov. 30. A reception for the artist will be held from 7 to 8:30 p.m. Friday Oct. 22 at the library.

Library Exhibits Committee Co-Chairperson Nancy Edwards explained that this show is a "pre" retrospective because the Stone Quarry Hill Art Park will be featuring Riester's work during the park's 20th Anniversary Celebration next year. "A retrospective show is essentially a look back over a career or stage in an artist's career," Edwards said. "Dorothy Riester is widely known and admired for her art and contributions in support of art," Edwards continued. "We are honored to present her work at the library."

The exhibit will be open for public viewing during all regular library hours. The Oct. 22 reception for the artist is free and open to the public.

The library is open 1 to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday, 7 to 9 p.m. Monday and Wednesday evenings and from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturdays. The library is also open whenever the library flags are displayed out front.
