GCPL to Exhibit Paintings by Maria Witmer-Rich


GCPL’s next art installment features the watercolor paintings of Maria Witmer-Rich. The exhibit will be on display at the Bainbridge Branch (17222 Snyder Rd.) from October – December. 

 

A section of Witmer-Rich’s Artist Statement states, “As a graduate-level chemist, I believe that my scientific background allows me to notice and replicate the fine detail in everyday objects.  With a focus on still life and flowers in particular, I often use a technique where I leave and come back to paintings frequently, allowing specific sections of the painting to fully dry to allow for highly defined detailing.” 

 

The exhibit can be viewed outside of the large meeting rooms, to the left once you enter the lobby, during the regular business hours of 9 a.m. – 5 p.m., Mon. – Thurs., and Fri. – Sat., 9 a.m. – 5 p.m
