An artist reception Monday evening will help welcome the work of artist Lorie Gurian to the Harrison Library.
The gallery, entitled “Natural Fractions” was first put on display last week. The reception will be held from 7 to 8:30 p.m. The display is sponsored by the Harrison Council for the Arts.
Gurian is a retired math teacher and is now a full time artist living in White Plains. She works in oil, acrylic, and watercolor and recently started taking classes in printmaking at the Westchester Community College Center for the Arts in White Plains. Gurian is a member of the New Rochelle Art Association and the Mamaroneck Artists Guild. Her work has won awards in many shows in Westchester County, Connecticut and New York City.
“I have always been interested in capturing my love of nature through painting," Gurian said. "I enjoy both traditional and abstract representations of nature. One of my delights in painting is to get up close and personal with often ignored aspects of the natural world. I also enjoy painting exotic plants. My watercolors are very detailed, but I balance that work with broad landscapes and abstract paintings in all three mediums. “
Gurian's work will remain on display in the library's community room until Sept. 7.
