Art & Music Reception

Main Library–Saturday, May 5 @ 3:00 pm. Roberta Reynolds: Acrylic & Paper Collages. Live music will be provided by guitarist & singer Steve Jones. Artist’s talk at 3:20

New Jersey native and Park Slope transplant Roberta Reynolds has lived in Maplewood for the past 20 years. She studied in the 1970’s and 80’s at the Art Students League in Manhattan and created oil paintings based on her photos and sketches of urban scenes. While commuting on NJ Transit from Maplewood to New York, she became entranced by the Meadowlands landscape. Using her photos taken from the train, she created abstract oil pastels. A class in collage making expanded the content of Roberta’s art enabling her to express her concerns for the natural environment and need for wildlife protection. The acrylic paintings and paper collages in this exhibit are her most recent work on this subject.
