The Karpeles Manuscript Library Museum presents "Visions of Nature - Pastel renderings of nature by Paula Pearl"
from Thursday, July 2 through Friday, July 31, 2009. A versatile artist who has expressed her personal experience of nature in several media, Paula Pearl began her career in art as a photographer after graduating from Syracuse University with a degree in advertising art/photography. She has also exhibited her work in watercolors and in fabric art, sometimes combining fabric with paint and other materials in distinctive wall hangings. Her imaginative and award-winning quilts have been widely recognized for their creative design and selected for publication in the magazine Quilting Arts.
Ms. Pearl’s sensitivity to nature has also drawn her to the use of pastel, which permits her to evoke the subtle interplay of light and color in scenes of the shifting waters of lakes and streams in delicate colors. In compositions at once bold and tranquil she displays an extraordinary command of her exacting medium that has earned her an associate membership in the Pastel Society of America and a charter membership in the Pastel Society of New Jersey. She is also an associate member of Audubon Artists, the Catherine Lorillard Wolfe Art Association, the New Jersey Center for Visual Arts, and numerous other art societies. She is represented by the Swain Gallery in Plainfield, N.J., and has exhibited frequently in New York, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania.
The Karpeles Manuscript Library Museum is located at 94 Broadway, across from City Hall, in the City of Newburgh. The Karpeles Museums are a national chain with nine in the U.S., specializing in the preservation and display of original, historically significant documents and manuscripts. Museum Hours: Thu.-Sat., 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., and Sunday, 12 to 4 p.m. Admission is always free.
