Art Display

Bridgenorth Library Art Display - February

Drop by the Bridgenorth Library during open hours, and enjoy art by artist Nancy Roberts (Acrylic on canvas)

"Impressionistic painting has helped me define the moods of nature whether painting the sea, marshes, forests, skies, wide rolling landscapes, or structures. This makes the paintings more lively, dramatic, and realistic. I also enjoy the textures and many other elements of abstract art as well." - Nancy Roberts.
