The Ocean County Library Toms River branch (101 Washington Street) is pleased to announce it will host “Images of Life”, an exhibit by local pastel artist Annette Heyman during the month of January.

Located in the McConnell Gallery, “Images of Life” showcases Heyman’s portraits and landscapes rendered in plein air pastel.  Plein air, or “open air” artwork, is drawn directly from life, capturing the precise environment and mood existing at the moment of its creation.

A lifelong educator and champion for the arts, Annette Heyman earned her BFA in Fine Arts from Monmouth University.  She specializes in pastels, but has also explored other artistic media such as acrylic, oil, and watercolor painting, sculpture, batik, glass, and ceramics.

“My way of honoring the world around us is to interpret the beautiful people, places, and images that can be so easily missed,” states Heyman.  “We all find our way of leaving our mark on the world.  Musicians sing and writers put their thoughts on paper, but as an artist, I try to capture beauty visually in the hopes of leaving a long-lasting impression to share with others.

“I hope this exhibit will help you see the world through my eyes and bring you some joy and appreciation of the unseen beauty around us,” she adds.

This exhibit is free and open to the public.  For more information, please contact the Toms River branch of the Ocean County Library at (732)349-6200 xt. 5112, or visit our website at www.theoceancountylibrary.org.
