Artist of the Month
STONEHAM PUBLIC LIBRARY DECEMBER EXHIBIT
The Stoneham Public Library is delighted to once again welcome artist Craig O’Neill who exhibits his beautiful art this month.
The Stoneham Public Library is delighted to host portrait artist, Lori Del Genis. The exhibit showcases the artist’s superb rendition of an eclectic array of subjects. These portraits include literary and theatrical figures as well as other subjects. Additionally, the artist will feature beloved pets.
Lori says, “We love to look at faces, from the very beginning of our lives. What we see can comfort and inspire us.” She believes that the realism of the portrait can inspire a profound response from those who view it.
Lori states that she is “self-taught” and continues to learn. The artist further explains that her work aims to capture on paper, “the emotions and expressions of faces we love, especially faces that are no longer with us.” She shares that, “I understood my mission when a grieving mother told me that when she looked at the portrait I’d created of her late son, it felt like he was always with her. I knew then that I’d done what I’d set out to do.”
On your next visit to the Stoneham Public Library take some time to view this wonderful art show in our Exhibit Hallway.
