'Famine Cottage,' acrylic by Deirdre O'Hea'Poppy,' acrylic by Jody MotazediA group art show called "Fellow Painters" will be exhibited in the Gallery & showcases from November 28 to December 29. Enjoy seeing a variety of topics and styles created by local talent.

'Peony,' acrylic by Ramona PerrinThe exhibiting artists met through classes at a local lifelong-learning community college, and have painted together for more than five years. Some have sold their works; one is interested in art therapy; another is an advanced art student. The rest just love what they do. With different backgrounds and training, a passion for painting brought them together. It continues to unite them in a dedication to fostering artistic goals and nurturing growing friendships.

'Bread,' acrylic by Julie McCain'Massapequa Preserve,' acrylic by Roseanne MoskowitzThe exhibit affirms the appreciation of each other's diverse talents and painting styles within this family of art student/friends. Having created a place where constructive criticism, ideas and suggestions are warmly given and accepted, now is the appropriate time to reveal their works to a wider audience. They invite the community to share their enthusiasm and love of visual art and hope viewing these works will bring a measure of the same joy they experienced in creating them.

Exhibit funding is sponsored by the Friends of the Garden City Public Library.
