JUNE 2007 ART EXHIBIT

Exhibition: Paintings by Rasa Valiene

Lithuanian born artist Rasa Valiene started painting as a young child, using walls, streets and every possible surface as canvas for her expressions. She finished her formal education at the Art College in Kaunas, Lithuania. Living in the United States for 6 years, she exhibited her work in Queens, Hoboken and Bellport. Her work was also shown in Europe at galleries in St. Petersburg, Vilnius and Yalta. Her images appear almost psychedelic, representing movement, music and thoughts, according to Ms. Valiene. The Lithuanian art critic, Algis Uzdaviny, describes her works as a "kaleidoscope of dynamic energies... she steps over the barrier of rationality and gives herself to the flight of imagination." The Friends of the Library will sponsor a reception for Ms. Valiene on Saturday, June 9 from 2:30 to 4:00 PM. Everyone is invited to meet with the artist at the library.
