Olive Free Library
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.
Enlightened Views is a show of works by five Hudson Valley artists that are kindred spirits on the path to enlightenment: about process and being in the moment when painting. This exhibition is curated by Newburgh artist and gallery owner Gayle Clark Fedigan and coordinated by Elaine Ralston.
Participating artists: Gayle Clark Fedigan, Carolyn H Edlund, Gary Fifer, Robert Trondsen, Marlene Wiedenbaum
Exhibition Dates: March 23 – May 4, 2019
Opening Reception: March 23, 2 – 4 pm
Proudly sponsored by Coldwell Banker Timberland Properties, Boiceville Wines and Spirits, and Bread Alone.
Robert Trondsen – Angus
Gayle Clark Fedigan – On the Level
