This January offers two exhibits by WAL photographers: Renelle Lorray at Greenwood Lake Public Library, and Peter Kopher at Wisner Library.
The Greenwood Lake Public Library’s Art Gallery will be showing the works of photographer Renelle Lorray for the month of January. Lorray inherited her painterly vision from her father, who has degrees in art and music, and loved to collect paintings. In particular, she had become interested in life cycles of various creatures that inhabit or visit her property. She will explore locations close to home, capturing the details that make up the whole picture. She has found that people enjoy “looking at and making a connection with what’s familiar – just presented in a different light.” Greenwood Lake Public Library, 79 Waterstone Road in the Village of Greenwood Lake. For more information, call 845 477-8377, ext. 104.
Peter Kopher‘s work is on display for the month of January at the Albert Wisner library in the Community Room on the Lower Level. Meet the Artist reception will be Saturday, January 6, 2:30pm to 4:00pm. Peter’s photographs, which are a mixture of abstracts, architecture, landscapes and “found” objects, also include out-of-the-ordinary details that might not normally be noticed. He belongs to the Catskill Art Society, the Delaware Valley Arts Alliance, the Goshen Art League and the Warwick Art League, and his work has been exhibited at many galleries in New York, as well as in Minneapolis, MN, Fairfield, IA and Plymouth, MA. Over 4,000 of his photos – and some digital artworks, as well – can be viewed online at peterkopher.deviantart.com/
