Cose Naturali – Natural Things: art by Renée Simard ~ September 6-29

We welcome Renée Simard to the Miller Library this September with her new exhibit, Cose Naturali – Natural Things. In the artist’s own words:

My eyes are attracted to colors and movements. My head preoccupied by thoughts, sounds, and even smells. The world we live in provides endless distractions…

Natural things. On walks, the beauty I see in tree trunks, weeds, wilting flowers can often stop me in my tracks. Images strike me and I can’t wait to put them on canvas.

The oil paintings and silverpoint drawings I am honored to show here illustrate moments when I filter out stimuli. This series, titled Cose Naturali – Natural Things, represents part of my artist’s relationship with nature.

The exhibit is open during Library hours. Meet the artist in the Library on Monday, September 26 from 5:00 to 6:30 pm.
