Little Gems from Litchfield County’s Robert Parker
Art: Cynthia Hochswender
Even before the show opened, works by Tristate area artists were selling briskly from the website for the ArtWall at the D.M. Hunt Library in Falls Village, Conn. — perhaps because there are some extremely yummy pieces, many of them by artists with national reputations.
Extremely generous with his work, always, is Cornwall, Conn., illustrator and painter Robert Andrew Parker, whose works in this book-themed show (which is called Book Marks), include illustrations for a Yiddish Lexicon.
The show officially opened on July 24 at the library and includes work by 25 artists including Parker, Danielle Mailer, Lori Barker, Megan Berk, Lena Curtis, Richard Griggs, Garth Kobal, KK Kozik, Patty Mullins, Peter Steiner, Judith Wyer, Robert Cronin, Amanda Thackray, Tilly Strauss, Zoe and Sergei Fedorjaczenko and Erika Crofut.
Artworks in Book Marks can be seen online and in person; to see/purchase them, and to get information on library hours, go to www.huntlibrary.org. All sales benefit the artists and the library.
