April Art show features new work by Linden O’Ryan (Tue. 1 Apr, 2014 10:00 am - Thu. 1 May, 2014 10:00 am)

BAR HARBOR — New work by Linden O’Ryan will be on display throughout April in the Gladys Franklin O’Neil Periodicals Room at the Jesup Memorial Library, 34 Mount Desert St. in Bar Harbor during regular library hours.           She calls the show “Because It Delighted Me!” The pieces on display were started in the "creative expression workshops" she hosted last year at her gallery, which offered an hour each of movement to music, a creative art project, and an hour of creative writing. What emerged was a series of watercolors featuring Ms. O’Ryan’s signature color and whimsy on black backgrounds. They will be debuted at the Jesup. The show moves to the Blue Hill Co-op in May. “My art sources from the themes of creativity, playfulness, nature, inspiration and gratitude, which weave their way through my work,” she says. Ms. O’Ryan has a gallery in Southwest Harbor which opens in June for its 12th season. She settled in Southwest Harbor in 1985 after traveling and living around the world. For the last 12 years she has been working in watercolors creating paintings, cards with original writings, and a postcard book called “Sunlit Thoughts.” Her work can be found in many galleries throughout Maine.   For more information about Ms. O’Ryan’s work, visit www.lindenoryan.com. For more information about her show at the Jesup contact Laura Edwards at the library, at [email protected] or 207-288-4245.
