Harrison Council for the Arts presents paintings by Joan Lengel at the Harrison Public Library, 2 Bruce Avenue, November 4-30 with an opening reception November 10 from 2:00 to 4:00pm.
This series of paintings entitled “Medley” is inspired by nature and its beauty, contrasts and spontaneity. Joan’s style is aimed at communicating an emotional response as opposed to a literal translation of what she sees. As in a musical composition, she sets out to convey the rhythm, harmony and color of nature on to the canvas, using a broad palate, textural approach, varied brush strokes and layer upon layer to represent nature’s complexity and diversity. By giving them musical titles, she also hopes to evoke the connection and influence music has on everything she paints.
Joan has studied at Silvermine Guild Arts Center, Westchester Community College Center for the Arts, Greenwich Art Society, Center for Contemporary Printmaking and SUNY Purchase. She has exhibited in many group and solo shows in New York and Connecticut. Joan is a member of Mamaroneck Artists Guild, New Rochelle Arts Council, Stamford Art Association and Greenwich Art Association.
The exhibit may be viewed Mondays and Wednesdays 9:30am to 9pm; Tuesdays, Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays 9:30am to 5:30pm., and Sundays 1:00 to 5:00pm. For info call 914/835-0324 www.harrisonpl.org.
