The Marco Island Public Library and the Marco Island Center for the Arts work cooperatively to provide monthly art shows at the Marco Library branch on Heathwood Drive. The summer months of 2014 will feature the works of Marco Island artist Judy Chinski. To purchase Judy’s artwork, please ask the library staff for assistance.
“I think of painting as a journey,” Chinski explains. “As I travel to places real or imagined, I strive to record the beauty of the things I see around me. I am drawn to light and shadow, but more so I am visually stimulated by color. My subject matter is chosen by the thinks I like, beaches, children, boats and worn out buildings come to mind. I paint in both transparent watercolor and acrylics. Although my subject matter can be quite diverse my body of work is held together by the use of bright, happy colors.”
She adds: “I enjoy sharing my vision with the viewer, as I compose the song of my life using brushstrokes and notes of color. I endeavor to make every painting a little better than the last. I want the viewer to recognize a place visited, to appreciation what I’ve tried to convey and travel with me.”
