A colorful example of Barbara Bickford’s work with watercolor. The Cazenovia Watercolor Society will display numerous selections from local artist in the Cazenovia Public Library until Nov. 30.
Cazenovia Visitors to the Cazenovia Public Library Art Gallery can enjoy a fascinating glimpse into the unique and varied talents of members of the Cazenovia Watercolor Society, until Nov. 30.
With the content of this exhibition as diverse as the artists themselves, everyone will find something to admire. There is Taloa Perry’s whimsical little “Donkey,” for example, and her lovely “Begonias” as well as other beautiful nature scenes in Sherry Wright’s “Bridge over Falling Water,” Barbara Bickford’s “Autumn Brilliance,” Tom McCobb’s “Whiteface Mountain,” and Mary Damon’s “Ocean View.”
E. Cummings Monroe contributed “Bubble Fish” and Geraldine Meday “Carpe Diem,” while the library’s very own cat is found front and center in Jana Laxa’s “Page.”
“Portrait” by Karen Durston is a one-of-a-kind entry, as is the “The Fabric Garden” by Joy Englehart, and an abstract flavor is added to the exhibition with “Immigration” by Ann Cross, “Dancing Tree” by Martha Keim-St. Louis, and “Forest Impressions” by Barbara Kellogg.
Finally, “Old Homestead” by Barbara Favro, “Greenhouse” by Drayton Jones, “Wilmurt Lake Boat House” by Julie Carr, and “Passageway I” by Mary A.W. Smith all represent a snapshot of a beautiful and sometimes nostalgic scene.
These and other paintings by the Watercolor artists will be on display in the Library Art Gallery through Nov. 30 during regular library hours: 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. weekdays and 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturdays. All are welcome.
