“Faces & Blossoms” - February Exhibition at Bernardsville Library

Bernardsville Library is pleased to present “Faces and Blossoms,” an exhibition of paintings by Linda Lam. The exhibition will be on view during the month of February with an opening reception for the public on Sunday, February 5 from 2:00 to 4:00. There is no charge to attend and no sign-up is needed.

Ms. Lam’s oil portraits are painted directly from live models and only use five colors – titanium white, cadmium yellow, alizarin crimson, ultramarine blue and burnt sienna. Her floral paintings are also painted in front of real flowers. “I like to paint directly from live models and real flowers,” said the artist, “The personal stories and life experiences of models touch me. Painting is my voice to celebrate life and beauty.”

Ms. Lam, a resident of Bridgewater, received a BA/MA in Economics from Hunter College. She has been painting full time since 2007 after spending eighteen years doing business analysis for AT&T and HSBC. Her work received honorable mention at the Contemporary Art Juried Member shows and was recognized as the Community Favorite at the Raritan Valley Art Association Member Exhibit.

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.
