Art empowers learning

On Exhibit in the Gallery…

March 14 – May 1, 2019

Paintings by GEORGE HERMAN

From the Artist:
Every work of art is a monument of sorts…taking something as mundane as a stick, a telephone pole, a backyard shed…and turning it into something to be admired (or not)…to be thought-provoking, inspiring, worthy of adulation or merely consideration…A small, seemingly insignificant thing can be preserved as something that is monumental in feeling, if not necessarily in size. The things I tend to paint are things that are incidental to something else I’m looking at, somewhere else I’m going, or occur in the process of becoming something else. Thus, a stick, a vernal pool, the view from my studio window, or from a passing train.

This exhibit would not be possible without assistance from the Friends of the Bedford Free Public Library.
The public is invited to view the exhibit during regular library hours.

Community Art Wall:

The Nature Around Us

Currently on exhibit are photographs by Pete Burke. Pete has always had a great appreciation for all of nature and its many wonders. However, It  wasn’t until he started doing some photography that he really began to appreciate the beauty of the animal world around us. His photographs have been featured in the 2018 & 2017 Town Planner Calendar, the front page of the June 2016 Bedford Minuteman Newspaper and OARS 2014 Calendar, just to name a few.

The Library offers exhibit space for emerging artists on the wall across from the Children’s Room.   We encourage students to apply. Each exhibit generally is up for two months, though there is some flexibility in dates.  If you are interested in showing your work, please contact Library Director Richard Callaghan [email protected] 781-275-9440.
All work submitted must be original and not previously shown at the Bedford Free Public Library.
