Through November and December, the Westfield Memorial Library is hosting an exhibit of various watercolors called, “Water,” by Westfield artist Linnea Rhodes. The library is located at 550 East Broad Street.

 

All of Ms. Rhodes’ works are inspired by water —an artistic vehicle for highlights and reflections and a home for bass and trout. All the lake houses shown are located on Forest Lake in Whitefield, N.H., where she spends a week with her family each summer. Other lake paintings depict visits to Davis Park on Fire Island and KiKi-Patchogue, NY. The paintings of Paris and Cassis were inspired by Ms. Rhodes’ travels abroad.

 

Her works are featured at: The Town Book Store and Gallery U of Westfield, The Artist Framer (Cranford), The Teapot (Summit), The Casino Café (Davis Park) and Behold!, (New Lebanon, NY).

Ms. Rhodes, who majored in art at Douglass College with a concentration in printmaking, has been sketching in ink for most of her life. She took up painting in oil in 2000 and has been working in water colored pen and inks for the past nine years.

 

She started showing and selling her work in 2005 when she joined the Contemporary Art Group, a group of currently producing artists from Central New Jersey. She has had solo shows in New York, Massachusetts, and in five venues in New Jersey.

 

The exhibit can be seen anytime the Library is open: Monday through Thursday, 9:30 a.m. to 9:00 p.m.; Fridays 9:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.; Saturdays 9:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. and Sundays 1:00 to 5:00 p.m.

 

Individuals who would like to display their artwork and collections at the library should contact head of Adult Services, Jen Schulze at 908.789.4090 ext. 7951.

 

Founded in 1879, the Westfield Memorial Library—the community’s destination for discovery and ideas—engages minds, entertains spirits and facilitates lifelong learning for people of all ages.
