ONEIDA — To mark the opening of the new Oneida Public Library at 459 Main St., Oneida, the library is hosting Visions 20/20, an exhibit of recent art works by 20 local painters — many of which reflect the artists’ experiences of the year just past and its traumatic impact on society.
The art work covers a range of styles, from naturalism to abstraction, as well as a range of media, from watercolors to acrylics on Plexiglas. The show was curated by Pamela Vogan Lynch, retired Oneida High School art teacher and a well-known artist in Central New York.
The artists represented in the show include the following: Lisa Billington, Kristie Boisen, Heather Cigeroglu, Jack Cotten, Eileen Cunningham, Laura Diddle, Ruth B. Donovan, Linda Evans, Karen Harris,
Drayton Jones, Kara Kiehn, Jana Laxa, Judith Haynes Levins, Pamela Lynch, Geraldine Meday, Ann Pangburn, John Seely, Maria Seely, Kathy Smith, and Debra Sturdevant.
Visions 20/20 will be on show in the OPL Art Gallery through February and can be viewed, as of this writing, during the library’s temporary operating hours: Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Many of the paintings are for sale by the artists, with price listings included in the show’s catalogue.
The OPL’s Visions 20/20 Art Exhibit is made possible with funds from the Decentralization Program of the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Gov. Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature and administered by CNY Arts.
