Lilly Woodworth, Paris Roses, 2011, oil on four panels, 32 x 32"

The David M. Hunt Library is pleased to announce its first exhibit of the New Year, Lilly Woodworth: Recent Paintings. The free opening reception (with refreshments) will be Friday, January 13, from 5 to 7 p.m.

In the genres of still life and landscape, Lilly Woodworth uses the language of oil paint to express the changing nuance of season and light. Personal emotive connections to her subject matter and to the paint itself result in a rich variety of familiar views from the region of her relatively new home in Sharon, Connecticut, where she embraces what she observes as the "real poetry in these hills and valleys."

Whether she presents a lushly dense bunch of roses in a Parisian florist's window or a view of the SharonValley, Woodworth's oil paintings reflect a heart-connection to nature. Several recent works break the confines of a single frame by using multiple panels to expand an emotion or feeling. Her images are a deeply personal response to what she sees and feels at the moment she is making the painting, allowing the fluidity of the medium of paint itself to "lead the way."

Lilly Woodworth: Recent Paintings
will be on exhibit at the David M. Hunt Library in Falls Village from Tuesday, January 10 through Saturday, February 4.
