Watercolors, ceramics on exhibit May 17–30 in Garrison
Sister Marjorie Moon and Brother Ted Novak of Graymoor will have their respective watercolor paintings and folk art ceramic works on exhibit at the Desmond-Fish Library in Garrison from May 17 to May 30.
Graymoor is the home of the Franciscan Friars and Sisters of the Atonement. Moon professed her first vows in August 1968 and her final vows in June 1974. She has been sharing her professional artwork with the world since 1987. Her artworks have been displayed in numerous art shows in New Hampshire, Canada and New York. Since 2008, she has been residing at Graymoor and sharing her music and art talents with the infirmed Sisters and local residents of the Hudson River Valley. Currently she teaches two free one-hour watercolor classes each week at Graymoor, which are open to local residents.
Novak, a native of Middletown, Connecticut, received his habit in 1960 and took his final vows as a friar in 1967. He has spent most of his religious life in various ministries at Graymoor and currently serves as chaplain to the Garrison Volunteer Fire Department. He has spent the past 35 years of his life as an artist/craftsman, specializing in firing crystals and glazed ceramic arts. He shares his gift by creating floral and ceramic artworks in celebration of the special seasons of the Christian calendar. His work is available for purchase at several galleries in the Hudson Valley and at Graymoor.
The art show will open with a reception and a chance to meet the artists on Sunday, May 17, from 2 to 4 p.m. For exhibit hours and directions, call the Desmond Fish Library at 845-424-3020 or visit desmondfishlibrary.org.
