This June, our gallery and display case features the monotypes and collages of Bonnie Forsyth. In this exhibit, ‘A Quiet Smile‘, Bonnie continues her journey as an artist. Bonnie began her journey of expression through her art in 1995 when she met Nancy Connolly, artist, teacher and collaborator. This exhibit represents work done over the past year.
The artist expresses her view of the world through her collages, prints, painting and other media. Currently, she has been working with monoprints and collographs using a printing press.
When Bonnie has painted in the past, the way that she paints is like dance through her strokes, swirls and dabs of her brush.
Ms. Forsyth’s art has been exhibited at the South Shore Arts Center in Cohasset, the Fuller Museum in Brockton, Citizen’s Bank in Plymouth, PAC-TV in Plymouth and the Danforth Museum in Framingham at the invitation of artist Michael Dowling and Herb Lovett at a seminar on “The Theory of Intelligence”.
A reception for Bonnie will be held on Saturday, June 9 at 1 to 3 PM in the library courtyard. Everyone is welcome to attend.
This April, our gallery features the 20th Annual Sacred Heart High School Art Students Exhibition. This exhibit features their paintings, drawings and photographs. The students, under the direction of art teacher Julie Trahon, have brought their visions and talents to these unique creations.
In art, or “the looking class,” we learn to look harder and try to see things in a different light. We venture into our imagination, endeavor to express ourselves and share our unique perspective. “Through the Looking Class” is a collection of artwork and digital photography which reflects the lessons students have learned this year on the elements of art and the principles of design. These lessons include drawing still-lifes from observation, anatomy drawings, color studies, imaginative drawings, portraiture, multimedia projects, and digital photographs.
This exhibition provides a professional forum for student artists; another important purpose of this exhibit is to foster creativity and promote the importance of the arts in our schools.
This May, our gallery and reading area feature the watercolor paintings of the Silver Lake Middle School 8th Grade Art Students.
The 8th grade painting and drawing classes at Silver Lake Middle School present their observational watercolors in this show. Painting and drawing is one of the three art elective classes 8th grade students can choose at Silver Lake Middle School in addition to an all year long art class.
