 My Art Journey, From the Beginning

CORNWALL, NY – The Cornwall Public Library will host a reception on Thursday, January 3 from 5:00-7:00pm to kick-off an art exhibit, entitled My Art Journey, From the Beginning by Maureen Hart. Maureen, an award winning artist, was born and raised in Rockaway Beach Queens. Bruce Degen, her High School art teacher, planted the seed that took over 30 years to sprout. Maureen has been a resident of Cornwall, in the beautiful Hudson Valley, for 30 years.  The Hudson Valley has been her muse for the past eight years. Her work will be on display in the library community room through February.

Artist statement:
“I love the beauty of the Hudson Valley and always want to take out a brush and capture the world around me in paint. My goal is to bring art into the lives of everyone I meet, whether it is through a paint night for mom, a paint night at your office or a children’s paint event at our library. I have had wonderful instructors such as William Noonan, Dennis Fanton, George Hayes, Nancy Reed-Jones, and Susan Hope-Fogel (all in the Hudson Valley),  as well as Carol Douglas in Maine.  All of my teachers have had a tremendous influence on my work.  I am always looking for new things to do with art.  I get bored easily, which leads me to try different mediums or look for new subjects. Some may say I lack focus, but I really just want to have fun, and I will go wherever that leads. 
I hope you enjoy viewing my work as much as I have enjoyed making it “
