Syosset Public Library has an art gallery featuring a different artist each month. This is one of my favorite parts of the library. The gallery is located on the first floor behind the snack area and I highly recommend taking some time there when you are in the building.
January’s artist is Laura Montllor. She started painting watercolors after working as an architect for 30 years, in partnership with her husband. After his death from a battle with brain cancer, she began daily walks in the woods of Long Island Sound. These natural landscapes give a serene, life-affirming panacea that is evident in her art pieces through their fluid vibrancy. Her approach to painting is meditative and her hope is to inspire others to observe their world with mindfulness and renewed joy.
Looking at these beautiful watercolors created by Ms. Montllor is like taking a walk in the woods or enjoying a day at the shore. They are sure to make one feel relaxed and at ease.
