Athol Library: September Art Exhibit

"Soft Landscapes" Artwork by Sarah Adam. September 1 - 30, 2015.

The Athol Public Library is pleased to present the September art exhibition “Soft Landscapes” by local artist Sarah Adam. It will run from September 1st through September 30th in the conference room (on the ground floor).  There will be a public reception on Tuesday, September 8, from 6 to 8 p.m., with light refreshments and the opportunity to meet the artist.  All are welcome to attend this open house.

Sarah Adam is an area artist specializing in acrylic paintings on found and recycled surfaces. This collection of smaller works is an amalgamation of silhouettes, cosmic skies, and loosely brushed landscapes. The daily commute continues to be an inspiration to the artist, as the simple scenery of the North Quabbin to southern Vermont regions give way to rolling hills and shadows against intense sunsets. Energetic brushwork hints at landscapes with tall pines and tree dotted hills, then blurs away at 40 mph. A bright palette of warm earth against agitated skies is both haunting and cautionary.
