Current Art Exhibit

Going to Seed

An exhibit of mixed media sculpture by Liz Alpert Fay & photographs and paintings by Kimberly Day Proctor

On view through February 20, 2021

Gallery open during normal Library Hours. Appointment not required.

The beauty of various found objects inspires Liz Alpert Fay to use them, along with pieces of her own textiles, to create interesting and unusual – and sometimes, humorous – sculptures.  Her desire to capture fleeting moments in time, coupled with her close observation of the natural world, is evident in much of her highly imaginative art. Well-known for her art quilts and exquisite hand-hooked rugs, her pieces are included in collections at The White House, Washington, D.C., The Museum of Arts and Design, New York City and in numerous private collections around the world.

Kimberly Day Proctor, an award-winning artist, will be exhibiting her multi-media works and photographs.  Her art expresses the beauty of Nature in the quiet moments, the small and grand transformations that take place over time as vines grow, seeds are set and new life begins.  She has illustrated several books, including Sydney Eddison’s, Gardening for a Lifetime and her work has appeared in numerous publications including Connecticut Magazine, County Magazine and Newtown Bee.
