Amusements: Digital Photography by Jessica Bowen

For the month of August, the Piermont Library will feature a fundraising exhibition “Amusements: Digital Photography.” by Jessica Bowen.

An Artist’s Reception will be held Sunday, August 5 from 2 – 4 p.m. Ms. Bowen celebrates her 10th anniversary as Piermont’s Library Director in June of 2018.

This exhibit is a fundraiser with all proceeds benefiting the library. Ms. Bowen, who credits the many artists who exhibit in the Library’s monthly shows as part of her inspiration, describes her upcoming exhibition as follows, “My show, Amusements, is a celebration of summertime amusements in New Jersey and New York.

Subjects include New Jersey boardwalks, amusement park rides, traveling carnivals, and fireworks.  The pieces created for this show are wall panels printed on wood, some have true-to-life colors and a glossy finish. Others are printed on maple, creating a warm, sepia-like effect that is well suited to the beach and boardwalk subjects.”

Refreshments at the reception will fit in with the boardwalk and carnival theme as well: saltwater taffy, bite-sized snacks, sangria and other treats will be served. The Dennis P. McHugh Piermont Public Library is located at 25 Flywheel Park W., Piermont, NY 10968.http://piermontlibrary.org
