Steiner: Taking the High Line to Norfolk
SHARON — A show of 20 paintings by Sharon author/artist/cartoonist Peter Steiner opened last weekend at the Norfolk Library. It will remain on display until March 1.The opening reception was held Sunday, Feb. 5. A large crowd attended the opening including other Litchfield County resident artists.The paintings on display in Norfolk represent two different themes. Some are views of New York City from the High Line Park in lower Manhattan. The rest are views of the Litchfield Hills. The works showed well thanks to the abundant natural light at the library. Its high vaulted ceilings added a feeling of spaciousness.Steiner says of his paintings that they are not intended to be completely accurate representations of what they portray. Rather, his approach is to use the actual view as a representational starting point for the finished painting. The library is open Mondays from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Tuesday through Friday, the hours are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturdays it is open from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., Sunday from 1 to 4 p.m. For more information about the library call 860-542-5075 or go online to www.norfolklibrary.org.
