LARCHMONT, N.Y. -- The Larchmont Public Library is hosting a special exhibit entitled "Two Impressions: The Romantic Realism of Francesca Martinelli and Joan Padian" throughout November.

The Oresman Gallery at the library is presenting the exhibit, which is scheduled to open Friday, according to a press release. The two artists "are kindred spirits and while their subject matter may differ, their approach to art places them in the realm of romantic realism," according to the release.

"Martinelli chooses window scenes, landscapes and flowers as her subjects while Padian paints works inspired by nature, usually in a series of paintings that expand a single subject," representatives said in the release. "Padian’s artistic interests also include illustrating children’s books and computer graphics."

Both artists have been painting for years and both have won awards at the Beaux Arts Competition in Westchester, according to the release.

"Both artists bring to each of their works a sense that each piece has its own character and feeling and that the colors and textures used create a different mood and evoke a different feeling for the viewer," representatives said in the release. "Whether the feeling is one of serenity, sadness, melancholy, joy or happiness, their notion is that the viewer should feel comfortable with each painting as a part of their world."

The Oresman Gallery is open to the public when the library is open. Those looking for more information are asked to call 914-834-2281 or visit the library online .
