Artists of the Month:
Cindi Handy

Cindi Handy is an award-winning watercolor artist, residing in Clifton Park, NY.  Cindi has been painting watercolors since 2008 and has been accepted in many local and regional juried shows in upstate New York.  Additionally, she has been juried into the National Green Mountain Watercolor Exhibition in 2016 and 2017, as well as the 42nd International Open Exhibition of Watercolors in Connecticut in 2018.  Cindi has been giving watercolor lessons and teaching drawing and painting classes regularly since 2012.  She also enjoys doing painting commissions and sees them as a real challenge to push herself to realize the vision of others.

This exhibition of watercolors and colored pencil paintings are inspired by nature.  Based on photographs taken in upstate New York, the Adirondack Mountains, the Green Mountains in Vermont, and the Berkshires in Massachusetts, this exhibition highlights the beauty and wonder of the natural world all around us.
Cindi’s artwork will be on display in the Library lobby for the month of February.
