Art Exhibit: Collages and Photographs by Jane Hogan at the Somers Library

Art Exhibit: Collages and Photographs by Jane Hogan at the Somers Library
January 5 - February 1, during library hours
Opening reception on Saturday, January 5th  2-4pm in the Program Room. No registration required.

Jane Hogan has been a Somers resident for fourteen years. While not an artist by profession or degree, she has always enjoyed the arts and has taken various courses in many art disciplines. Her photographs reflect her keen eye for detail, while her collage work is usually created with a friend or family member in mind. Jane's work has previously been displayed at the Putnam Arts Council in Mahopac, NY, and she has had her work accepted into a juried art show there. She would like to thank the Somers Library for the opportunity to show some of her work in the hope that it will inspire others to get out there and create their own. Her work can also be viewed on her Instagram account @janecollagecards.

Art Exhibit: Re>formations by Susan Richman at the Somers Library

Art Exhibit: Re>formations by Susan Richman at the Somers Library
February 1 - 28, during library hours

In this artist’s work, objects and dyes are layered in viscous liquids that are frozen to create temporary sculptures. Techniques involving mixing chemicals to the dyes as well as melting the layers and edges of the objects create imperfect shapes and ranges of color that are then photographed.
Two new series are featured in this exhibition. In the first, common botanical materials found on walks are used; in the second shards of glass from broken bottles.
Both series use white backgrounds and are illuminated with rays of light that pass through the sculptures. Similar to scientific specimens, the images are isolated from their surroundings for better observation. The original materials collected are no longer in existence, but the sculpted specimens exist as photographs and are preserved for display.

This is a flexible curriculum, and class interests and experience will play a part in dictating our direction. This program is designed for teens and adults. You do not need a knowledge of music to attend this class - only a desire to learn! Registration is required; please register on our online calendar here or call 914-232-5717.

Barry Wiesenfeld is a freelance musician and is on the faculty of SUNY and Ramapo College.
