Artist of the Month:
Wendy Noyes
During February, the Library is pleased to feature artwork by Wendy Noyes in our lobby gallery.


Wendy Holmes Noyes has been photographing seriously for 50 years.  She worked with Minor White at MIT after graduating from Smith College, then with Howard Chapnick at the New School in NYC, publishing a portfolio of photographs about the Hudson River and the city with a grant from the NY State Council on the Arts.  She taught workshops for many years focusing on antique printing processes like platinum printing, sharing her interest in fine printing and developing her own work in her studio in Spencertown where she has lived for the last 40 years with her husband Sandy Noyes, also a photographer, and their two children.
Wendy’s exhibit titled, Full Bloom and Beyond, will feature photographs in memory of her nephew Charlie. January 9, 1986 –  December 6, 2019
Grief and gratitude are kindred souls,
each pointing to the beauty of what is transient
and given to us by grace.

All are invited to an artist reception on Friday, February 7 from 5 – 7 p.m. in the Library lobby.  Wendy’s artwork will be on display throughout the month of February.
