Posted 20 May 2017: Judy Boyd to Exhibit in the Gallery in June-July

The Vista Grande Public Library (VGPL) will host Santa Fe artist Judy Boyd June 27 – July 29 in the library gallery. "Birds of New Mexico" features a mixture of 18 original watercolors, as well as limited edition, museum quality reproductions.

"Photographic realism has never been my goal, but I do strive to make each species of bird easily recognizable in my paintings," says Boyd. After that’s accomplished, she takes a degree of artistic license with colors, patterns and textures and uses every opportunity to explore repeating shapes. Using a dry brush technique, her work is characterized by fine brushwork, meticulous detail and fanciful backgrounds. Unique borders tell stories about the birds’ habitats.

The public is invited to meet the artist July 7 at a library reception between 5 and 7 pm. Light refreshments will be served and note cards and prints will be available for purchase.

The VGPL exhibition series is for the enjoyment of patrons and visitors when visiting the library located south of the El Dorado Community School, on 14 Avenida Torreon, Santa Fe, NM 87508. Library hours are 10-6 Tu - F and 10-4 on Sat. Exhibition art will be on sale by the artist and available to the purchaser after the close of the show. The library will receive a sales commission benefiting operations and library programming.
