April Art Show: Maxine Sorokin and Henry Altmann - mixed media

Please join us for a free reception on SATURDAY, April 5th, 2014 at 11AM Refreshments will be provided, and the artists will answer questions. We hope to see you there! The art will remain on display for the month of April.Sorokin works in postal stamp collage, silk painting and other media. For these collages, she uses pre 1972 lick and stick postal stamps, and sorts them by color and uses them as her "paint." The fragments of stamps are quite tiny once she is ready to glue down her tiny cut-up stamp pieces. Altmann works in oils, pastels and watercolor. They both teach classes at area colleges and schools, and they have had over 200 two-person shows together.   Sponsored by the Friends of the Wells Public Library.

Artists in the community are encouraged to apply to exhibit their art in the gallery. Please contact the library for more information. 646-8181
