Award winning Hudson River Valley artist Amanda Epstein will share her travels to Italy, Spain, France, Hawaii, New England and the Hudson River Valley in an exhibit of her watercolors at the Desmond-Fish Library in Garrison. The show begins with an opening reception from 7 to 9 p.m. on Friday Sept. 20, and continues until Oct. 6, during library hours, Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., Tuesday and Thursday from 2 to 9 p.m., Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., and Sunday from 1 to 5 p.m. The library is located at 472 Route 403, Garrison.

“This artist has a great gift, especially for portraying water and clouds,” said Carol Donick, director of the Desmond-Fish Library. “She helps me see our beautiful Hudson Valley in a new way.” Amanda takes great pleasure in painting on location (plein air) as well as in her studio in the Hudson Valley where she lives. She is a graduate of Parsons School of Design and a signature member of the Northeast Watercolor Society and the Salmagundi Club in New York City.  Visit aewatercolors.com for a small selection of the upcoming exhibit.
