CURRENTLY WE ARE DISPLAYING THE ARTWORK OF MARY SHERWOOD OF WEST SAND LAKE, NY. HER WORK, BEING SHOWN AT THE LIBRARY, CONSISTS OF WATERCOLOR, CHARCOAL, AND PASTEL ON PAPER. MARY SAYS, “THERE IS BEAUTY IN SIMPLICITY, STILLNESS AND THE COMMON RHYTHMS OF OUR LIVES. I’D LIKE TO COMMUNICATE THESE THOUGHTS TO THE VIEWER ALONG WITH MY LOVE OF WATERCOLOR, CLARITY OF LINE AND THE ENDURING NATURE OF LIFE. PAINTING AND DRAWING OFFERS A CHANCE TO DO THIS WITHOUT THE WRITTEN OR SPOKEN WORD.”
