Friends, neighbors and a puppy who sits on your lap while you sip latte and eat pastry… it doesn’t get much better than that. And so artist Eileen Rafferty dreamed it up for the oil on canvas, at left, in an exhibit about neighbors at the Flemington Library.
“There’s a lot of art being created… by artists from all walks of life,” writes Charles David Viera, an artist, art instructor, and curator of the exhibit. “You can be a serious part-time artist… Gaugin was a bank teller by day and an artist by night.”
Some of the artists in this exhibit are bartenders, teachers, nurses, drug reps, retired probation officers, homemakers… and possibly your neighbors. The exhibit runs to Jan. 17.
