Paintings of Paul Riley to be featured in the Wotiz Gallery throughout May
The Milton Public Library will host an art exhibit in its Wotiz Gallery showing the paintings of local artist Paul Riley, from May 2nd through the 31st. This display highlights some recent artwork by this talented craftsman, including watercolors and acrylics. The artist’s career as a mechanical designer and a teacher of drafting and design has influenced the style of his art.
As an educator, Paul inspired many students to explore their creativity and be lifelong learners. After retiring, the artist pursued an interest in art and began taking painting classes and he moved from line drawing to more expressive free form. He has recently found watercolors to be a rewarding medium. His appreciation for lighting is seen in paintings such as “Sunset Lake” and “Nauset Light.” Paul continues to chronicle places he has travelled, as viewed in “Cuba Images.”
Still growing as an artist, he embraces experimentation with subject, technique and medium. Paul remains open to innovative expression and enjoys the challenge of identifying a wide array of subjects to paint.
The Milton Public Library is located at 476 Canton Avenue, and for more information about applying for a library exhibit, please Email [email protected] or call the Reference Dept. at (617) 898-4964. We hope you will come visit the MPL this month to enjoy this new exhibit!
