LARCHMONT, N.Y. – The Larchmont Public Library’s Oresman Gallery will host free dual month-long exhibits featuring landscape paintings starting on Monday, March 2.
The work of Rosemary Hundt and Karen Adams – called “Seasonal Abstracts” and “Landscapes From Maine To Wyoming,” respectively – will be shown at the gallery until Saturday, March 28.
The library also will host a free reception featuring both artists on Saturday, March 7, from 2:30 to 4 p.m.
A resident of Stamford, Conn., Karen Adams prefers to paint landscapes and outdoor subjects. She started using oils as a young girl in New Jersey, but put art aside when attending college.
Rediscovering art when taking classes in New York City, her inspiration comes from family trips to national parks like Acadia, Grand Teton and Yellowstone National Park.
“I hope that my work portrays the beauty of our country to the viewer and allows them to appreciate it,” Adams adds.
Larchmont resident Rosemary Hundt is an art veteran, having been painting for 20 years. Her work has been previously shown at the Oresman Gallery and at “Art in the Park.”
Her interest in landscapes comes from years of hiking over local and national trails and going as far afield as Ireland and England.
“The artist in me has emerged. I have fallen in love with nature’s captivating beauty and rich complexity.” Hundt says. “In order to convey what I see, I try to distill the detail and form shapes and patterns with contrasting lights and darks."
"Every good art teacher reminds his or her students to step back from the canvas in order 'to see' what has happened. Learning to see and then to paint in an interchangeable way is an exciting journey of discovery and execution.”
