Art Show In The Fairfield Library's Bruce S. Kershner Gallery

My husband, daughter and I decided to be a host family for a student from an exchange program. Yesterday, we took Maggie to a fun event in Fairfield and while we were there, we decided to see Bruce S. Kershner Gallery - they always have a great exhibitions there. And we saw some great art there! The paintings, drawings and collages were done by artists with disabilities and special needs, and I was really impressed with a great ideas and quality of their work. It was very hard to pick a favorite painting for us. Maggie really liked the abstract painting created with wheels of a wheelchair (to the left). Below is another snapshot of a painting. If you are in Fairfield, visit this gallery even if just for a quick look. Art heals souls (and music too)   :-)

The "Summer Time" Exhibition - Wilton Library

When I saw the call for artist for "Summer Time" exhibition in Wilton Library, I had a flash of children playing in the meadow, and children going to a carnival, and children splashing in the water on the sea shore, and having a clown juggler over for their birthday...
So for this show I decided to create a couple of pen and watercolor "free hand" drawings with children in mind - "Girl With Flower" and "Juggling". Below, you can see images from today's reception for two months long art exhibition.

Update: Aileen Lindner mentioned the "Summer Time" exhibition in our local newspaper.

"Summer Time" -  50+ artists exhibited in Wilton Library

 Despite the storm and heavy rain hitting skylight windows of the library, many people came to the reception.
In the middle is my pen/watercolor drawing "Juggling"

 I've made an artist friend :-)
