MONDAY: Westchester Sketchers at the Harrison Library


Harrison Public Library Exhibit: Shapes and Shadows

Beyond a shadow of a doubt, you will want to join us at the Harrison Library for our sketching event this week.  "Shapes and Shadows is an art show by two artists, Marion Schneider and Mitchell Visoky.  The works of Marion Schneider include paintings and pastel works with bold design, a strong passion for color and unique space arrangement.  Extreme light and shadow are strong themes that are evident in this exhibit.

Exhibited by Mitchell Visoky are works of mixed media and collage that uses layered paper, printed images, and vellum photographs that represent the experiences of the artist.  The images give way to the concepts of consciousness, loss and a dreamlike state of minds. The artist strives to achieve tension and correlation between forms by balancing opposites: motion vs. stillness, depth vs surface, concealing vs revealing and positive vs negative spaces.

In addition to sketching the exhibit, we can take our sketchbooks to the Village Green, just outside in front of the library.  Here you may draw memorials, statues, a pretty gazebo or one of the charming homes situated in the vicinity of the library
