The Lucy Robbins Welles art exhibit program allows local artists the opportunity to share their art with the public in the Community Room of the library. The Exhibit Coordinator, in consultation with the Library Director, is authorized to select exhibits. Exhibits may be viewed during normal business hours, when the Community Room is not in use.
"Photography has always fascinated me. There is something magical about the snapshot in time that occurs when the shutter clicks. A unique moment that captures our interest, and archives our lives for the generations that follow. That's why I love photography." - Mark Cook
Award-winning artist Jane Penfield is drawn to nature, as well as to the human influence on it. She is especially attracted to elements that evoke light, drama, and emotion. Her work is an impression of light and life as she has experienced it through walking, travel, and direct observation.
Jane holds a Bachelor of Arts from Mount Holyoke College and a master's degree from the Hartt School of the University of Hartford. She was profoundly inspired by the beautiful New England landscape of the Pioneer Valley, a place that nourished her intellectually and creatively, helped form her values, and started her on her artistic path.
