More About Coastal Expressions Exhibition by Joyce Grasso

On view during regular library hours, September 6 - October 6, 2019.

Coastal Expressions features the abstract seascapes of Joyce Grasso, the Best in Show winner of Pequot Library’s 2018 Art Show Wet Paint: Art Fresh from the Studio. Grasso describes her acrylic on canvas paintings as creating a “feeling of place” with “bold colors, multiple laters and varied textures.” This exhibition also highlights Grasso’s mixed media collages with hand-painted acrylic papers on cradleboard.

Enjoy a gallery talk led by Grasso during the opening reception on September 5 at 6:30 p.m., along with light hors d’oeuvres and wine.
