SUDBURY – Goodnow Library is pleased to invite the community to attend its December art exhibit that showcases scenes of America.
“This Land is Your Land, This Land is My Land” will feature more than 40 scenes of the United States of America.
Sandy Wilensky, a beloved local artist and retired educator, created the idea for the exhibit while teaching a watercolor art class at the Sudbury Senior Center. Students were instructed to create watercolor paintings of various American scenes based on the lyrics of Woody Guthrie’s folk classic.
Plans for the art show were postponed in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Wilensky passed away from cancer in February 2022, before she could make her vision a reality.
Students from her art class worked together to assemble the artwork that was created during this project to make Wilensky’s concept come to life.
The exhibit will be on display from Dec. 3-29 at the Library, 21 Concord Road, and open for viewing during regular business hours: Monday-Thursday, 9 a.m. to 9 p.m., Friday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Saturday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. The Library will be closed on Dec. 24-26.
An opening reception will be held on Wednesday, Dec. 7, from 3-6:45 p.m. The public is invited to view these works and to meet many of the contributing artists.
