Featured Artist for March and April
The art exhibit at the library for March and April features the watercolors and pastels of Terri Brooks. Brooks taught art for 31 years in the Conway School District and has lived in Freedom for most of her adult life. She likes to paint a variety of subjects, always emphasizing light. “I am most fascinated by the way light not only illuminates the subject, but the shape of the shadows it creates, its reflective qualities and the way it sparkles.” The work shown here is an assortment of the artist’s favorites. The only one not for sale is a painting of her beloved Owen, the large Newfoundland dog she and her husband Chuck were often seen with out walking, pulling his cart and swimming in Loon Lake. Owen passed away this fall, but among Brooks’ favorite pieces is this one of Owen shaking off after a swim.
