There will be an art reception for the gallery show of Maria Mazziotti Gillan’s paintings on Tuesday, March 5 at 7:00 PM at the Highland Park Public Library, 31 North Fifth Avenue, Highland Park, NJ.
The reception coincides with a poetry reading by the artist that evening as part of Women’s History Month. The event is sponsored by The Friends of the Library as part of their Poetry Night Series.
The gallery show will be up throughout March 2019 in the meeting room.
“Whereas in my poetry, I try to root my work in the details and specificity of ordinary life, in my art I am not attempting to achieve realistic portrayals of people or birds or flowers. Rather I am trying to capture energy and feeling. I am trying to get the essence of the subject down on paper, to convey joy or sadness, exuberance or loss.”
