January 29th through March 2nd
From January 29th to March 2nd, the Art on View collection of pieces by the Darien Public Schools' Faculty. The exhibit will be on display in the Library’s Art Gallery.
Said artist Shelley Kawai, "Drawings included in this show are inspired by what I observed during the many science field courses I took while earning my master’s degree at Wesleyan University. Observation is an essential part of being both an artist and a scientist. I have discovered how much I learn by taking the time to look at nature more closely. As an artist I am aware of the lines, shapes and textures I see. However, they take on new meaning when I study animal anatomy, behaviors, and ecosystems. Having knowledge helps me to see something because I am aware of it. The more time I spend observing, them more I realize the underlining forces in the balance of nature. Nature is constantly undergoing changes and everything is connected."
The Art Gallery is located on the Library's Lower Level.
