Now on view in the lower level Claire Davidson Siegel Gallery is Seascapes & Landscapes, a solo exhibit featuring paintings by Paul Padovano. The works on display were created in oils, acrylics, and watercolors. He creates picturesque environments that transport the viewer to other places.
Now on view on the main floor of the Patchogue-Medford Library is a children’s art exhibit titled This Is Us! The inaugural exhibition, made possible with the support of the Patchogue-Medford Friends of the Library, features drawings from children aged 5 – 10. All of the drawings were created during a library program last March. The children were given white stock paper, pencils, colored pencils, crayons and markers, and instructed to draw pictures of themselves as well as their family members. The project’s goal was to teach the children multiculturalism and diversity through art. In total, 15 children participated in the program and have their artwork on display.
Now on view at the Patchogue-Medford Library is Disruption, a group exhibition featuring the artists of Family Residences and Essential Enterprises, Inc. (FREE). The exhibition, curated by FREE’s Director of Art Therapy Ed Regensburg, LCAT, consists of eight abstract paintings. The artists included in this exhibition are Maria C., Diane E., Mary Claire J., Christine K., Daniel K., Cheryl L., Alicia M. and John M.
FREE exhibitions feature dynamic works of art created by individuals with autism and other developmental disabilities. The images in this exhibition are powerful and moving, both for the viewers and the artists. The works are testaments to the important role art has in self expression and empowerment. FREE believes that art is an expressive outlet that fortifies the artists successful, ongoing contributions to their communities. 2018 is the sixth year FREE has exhibited artwork at the Patchogue-Medford Library.
