Harrison Public Library Presents “My Favorite Things” by Doris Mady

Exhibition is on display October 2 to November 4, 2022.
Gallery is open to the public during regular library hours.

Artist’s Statement:

Many Artist Statements refer to “Nature” and “Colors” as a means to describe why a person has taken on the mighty task of painting. I too, could fall under that umbrella, but I consider myself an “outdoor” painter, also known as a Plein Aire Painter. Once someone asked me, “Why plein aire?” My answer, “because being outdoors offers an infinite array of possibilities and within that finite experience there is even more finite experiences tickling our minds.”

For example, with Earliest Morning did I understand that the sun that is playing peek-a-boo with me will soon melt all the snow? In Doug’s Trees could I ever know that the mountain before me, that I scaled so easily, would one day say to me, “Time to let a younger person take over.” Lastly, would the extending shadows of Birches II be a cooling salve for my sunburnt shoulders?

My finite experiences will exist for brief moments in time…but my goal is to bestow infinite, upon infinite experiences on others as they view my work.

About the Artist:

As a child, before all the budget cuts for The Arts, I was fortunate to attend public schools that had art programs. In Junior High School and High School I majored in art. I am a graduate of the Fashion Institute of Technology, studied at School of Visual Arts, Westchester Community and Skidmore Colleges. Following a long, successful advertising career as creative director/graphic designer in some of advertising’s Top Twenty advertising agencies I decided to pursue my first love: oil painting. Painting has taken me all over the world and brings me such enjoyable moments.
