The art of Barbara Fitzpatrick at Sutherland Library

An interesting art work titled 'Childhood' by local artist Barbara Fitzpatrick will be on display at Sutherland Library during September and October.

The triptych 'Childhood' is based on three old black and white family photographs.  This set of works is an exploration of the eventful and emotional experience of childhood that we all share.

This exploration began with three charcoal drawings on canvas followed by a sculpted layer of gesso and impasto to add texture and complication. Many glazes of acrylic paint were added and rubbed back to produce a depth of feeling.
