July Display: Oil Paintings

Were you able to see the beautiful artwork on display in the Livingston Library from July 1-15?

The Livingston Public Library displayed oil paintings by local artist Joan Speare, from paintings julyJuly 1st to the 15th, entitled “In Celebration of Nature.”

Her style is abstract impressionism. Several of her oils have been shown in juried shows around Charlotte, NC. Some of her pieces are in private collections, and one, of a frog, is traveling around the world in a display to bring awareness to the danger of their extinction by chemicals.

Joan is presently studying with Laurie Harden at the Livingston Community Center. She is participating in several local art shows including the ACL Gallery, Studio Montclair, Gaelen Art and the Livingston Arts Association, winning an honorable mention for an abstract in their fall 2014 show.

Joan is a Certified Master Gardener, having completed the Rutgers University Master Gardeners curriculum, and is volunteering at various Essex County parks and the annual Garden Sale in the spring.

“Artistic expression nourishes my soul. I am pleased to share my art with you.” says Joan.

Displayed are some 13 of her vibrant paintings of flowers and landscapes.

Adds Joan, “ I love painting in oils because layering of paints creates light and depth.”

 Stay tuned to see what will be on display in the library next!

-Archana Chiplunkar, Adult Services Librarian
