On Exhibit: Bicycle and Garden Paintings by Susan Entin

Watercolors by Susan Entin

We are celebrating bicycles and urban gardening with July’s exhibit of paintings by Susan Entin. The artist had the following to say about her work:

"These paintings are my prayers, my only way of speaking about environmental issues of urgency, and my celebration of possibility. I include in this show three works from a series of watercolors celebrating former-Boston Mayor Tom Menino's Hubway program, done at the time of this retirement. Two out of several bicycle series are also included. Subsequent to this was a series, in watercolor and water-based oils, about urban gardening across the nation. Nine water-based oil paintings celebrate Baltimore, Manhattan, San Francisco, and other location. Two watercolors also celebrate urban gardening in New York and Baltimore.

Are you an artist or do you know someone whose art you think would fit well in the library? Please submit an application to be considered!
