Featured Artist for July and August
Visit our downstairs gallery for the latest exhibit, WATER: As Scene by a Landscape Artist. Barbara McEvoy, owner of Freedom Gallery located next to the church, has been “playing around with art” most of her life, but on retirement from education in 2007 she treated herself to two years of art school in Pennsylvania, then moved to Freedom for the incomparable hiking and landscapes. In this exhibit she focuses on water in its myriad forms, including 9 of her recent oil pastel series of waterfalls (14 and counting to date), plus oils and pastels of mountains, streams and vistas of the Whites, and our own Mill Pond waterfall.
All paintings are for sale at 20% off, through August, and the library will receive 10% of the profit.
