    "Doors That Amaze" Art Exhibit on View in Claire Davidson Siegel Gallery

    The Patchogue-Medford Library is proud to present Doors That Amaze, a solo exhibition featuring the artwork of Anne T. Baum. The artist’s new series consist of stylistic, watercolor renderings of various doors, portals, and entryways that the artist has come across during her travels.

    About the Artwork

    Each image represents a new possibility as one wonders what is behind the closed door. One work on display, Untitled #1, depicts a peach-colored, weather-worn facade and a set of green doors within an ornate arch. One wonders what is on the other side, until seeing overhead a frieze of what is undoubtedly the Virgin Mary on a cloud of cherubs. The brick road suggests that the building is located in an old-fashioned urban center. But, there are no other marks that indicate the building’s location.

    Another work, Untitled #2, depicts a simple, colonial-style, white paneled building with a pair of red-brown doors. The pediment over the entrance is plain and bell-shaped. The orange, yellow, and green leaves on the ground suggests that the work was painted in the fall. Aside from that, there are no other distinguishing features that reveal any other information to the viewer. One is left wondering where this building is and why the artist decided to paint it.
