Olive Free Library’s Exhibitions
The Olive Free Library has created a platform to show and sell the art of regional artists, both established and emerging. This provides art enthusiasts a way to view, appreciate, and purchase local and regional artworks.
The Olive Free Library Association is pleased to present its third annual juried summer art exhibition, titled Reverie (reverie: one pleasantly lost in one’s own thoughts; a daydream). It runs from July 20 to September 7, 2019. The exhibition has been juried by Olive Free Library Exhibition Committee members Elaine Ralston, Linda Schultz, and Kathy Yacoe. Featuring the work of 33 different regional artists, and covering all styles and media, the exhibition is hung in the Olive Library’s spacious Community Gallery.
Participating artists: Mizuyo Aburano, Florence Ancilotti, Leah Brown Klein, Kai Caswell, Sue Cocozza, Marie Cole, Carol Davis, Stewart Dean, Mason Durrin, Stacie Flint, Angela Gaffney Smith, Kristen Garnier, Janet Gunderson, Rebecca Hellard, Janette Kahil, Pat Kelly, Carol LaMonda, Jeremy Lebdiker, Louise Lefkovits, Linda Lynton, Estelle Nadler, Astrid Nordness, Sandra Nystrom, Elaine Ralston, Sandra Scheuer, Linda Schultz, Roberta Sickler, Janet Siskind, Carol Slutzky-Tenerowicz, Jan Sosnowitz, Rob Wade, Joyce Washor, and Kathy Yacoe.
