Art Exhibit: Layers by Rosemary Washington

We are pleased to welcome back Rosemary Washington to share her watercolors in the Miller Library during the month of October. The artist notes: “The paintings in this ‘Layers’ series play with pattern, form, repetition, negative space, and color values and combinations with the goal of creating a beautiful, harmonious composition.”
