“Thursdays with Charlie”: October Exhibition

Bernardsville Public Library is pleased to present Thursdays with Charlie, an exhibition of paintings by students of the artist Charlie Churchill. The exhibition, which gets its name from the day the students meet with their teacher, will be on display from October 4 through October 30, and the public is invited to meet the artists at a reception on Sunday, October 9 from 2:00 to 4:00 pm. [No sign-up is necessary.]

This show features recent paintings by Ivy Antonio, Susan Bendas, Louise Duffy, Mary Richardson, and Deborah Stryker. These women have all been students of Mr. Churchill’s over the past few years. Their work showcases an extremely wide range of styles and subjects. Painting in oils, this group executes still-lifes, landscapes, animal portraits, human portraits, and assorted figurative compositions. Mr. Churchill will also have paintings on display.

Charlie Churchill has a background in advertising and illustration, but made the switch to fine art upon graduating from The New York Academy of Art with an MFA in painting in 2003. He concentrates on landscapes, portrait commissions, as well as figurative work. He gives semi-private lessons in the area and at the Studio 7 Gallery which is where he made the lucky connection with these talented artists.

The show will be on view in the library’s Community Room during regular library hours unless a meeting is in progress. For further information, please call the library at 908-766-0118.
