Oresman Gallery to Feature Historic Photographs And Abstract Art in April
Apr 1, 2019 to Apr 29, 2019
09:00 AM until 05:00 PM
During April, the Larchmont Public Library’s Oresman Gallery will feature two unique and very different exhibits. LEISURE IN LARCHMONT features historic photographs of people in Larchmont from over 100 years ago and ABSTRACT ART features work created by students in Diane Davis’ abstract art workshop held at the Library in March.
There will be an Artist Reception honoring the abstract art students and Dane Davis in the Oresman Gallery on Saturday, April 6 between 2 and 4 pm. The reception is open to the public.
Diane Davis has been teaching art to adults and children in a variety of locations around New York City for over 15 years. She is the recipient of numerous scholarships and her work is featured in permanent collections including that of the prestigious Schomberg Center for Research in Black Culture in Manhattan.
Simultaneous with Abstract Art, the Gallery will feature LEISURE IN LARCHMONT, an exhibit of rare historic photographs of people in Larchmont from over 100 years ago. The Larchmont Historical Society, curated by Archivist Lynne Crowley, are providing the photographs. Many are unusual and humorous, and to capitalize on this, the Historical Society is hosting a “caption the photo” contest. Any time during the exhibit one can submit a caption for the photos (the Society asks that captions be kept clean). The captions submitted will be revealed and winners announced on Saturday, April 27, in a reception from 2pm to 4pm in the Gallery.
There will be a celebration of LEISURE IN LARCHMONT in the Oresman Gallery on Saturday, April 27 between 2 and 4 pm, when the winners of the photo caption contest winners will be announced. The celebration is open to the public.
