Art in the Library

Four landscape paintings by BPSI Member, Lewis Kirshner, are on display in the library this fall. According to Dr. Kirshner’s statement, they “portray familiar scenes from our rural Vermont neighborhood, which has stood as a reassuring constant presence during our residence over the COVID year. Some of these paintings display a broader palette than might be apparent at first glance. The bucolic landscape with its accretion of centuries of human choices about domesticating living space holds continuing fascination for me. The changes over 150 years have been subtle, but the world of family farms is fading and a traditional culture with it. I like to paint these scenes in different seasons. They are representational depictions that reflect personal moods and interpretations, while reminding me of the people with whom I share these places.” Click here to read the full artist statement.
