Art Reception to be Held at McGrath Library

On Wednesday, March 26 from 4:30-8:30, the McGrath Library will be hosting an Art Reception featuring the works of Martha Marlette, Monica Angle, Dorothy Keller and Ruth L. McCarthy.

Martha Marlette was educated at the Art Students League in New York City, at Skidmore College, and at The Cooper Union for the Advancement of Science and Art, also in new York City.  Marlette works in watercolor and oil on subjects ranging from still life to portraiture.

Monica Angle attended Harvard College, pursued advanced courses in printmaking and bookmaking at the Minneapolis College of Art and Design and received an MS in Geography from Pennsylvania State University.  Angle’s work is part of several collections, both public and private, including the Burchfield Penney Art Center, the Minnesota History Center and the Walker Art Center.

Dorothy Keller received a Master of Art Education from SUNY Buffalo.  Since the 1990s, she has painted and taught in her own studio at The Tri-Main Center in Buffalo.  Keller is known for her paintings of neighbors, pets, vegetables and anything related to Breezy Point, NY.

Ruth L. McCarthy studied art in Western New York and the Midwest.  She continues to receive commissions for her work in homes and businesses ranging from New York, Florida, Connecticut, Cape Cod, Nantucket and beyond.  In recent years, she has been working in oils on canvas and board using a limited palette of colors.  Landscapes which compound realism with a twist of imagination give her works a distinct, timeless character.

The reception will also include cheese, crackers, fruit, desserts, water, pop, and coffee as well as beer and wine.
