Harrison Public Library Presents New Paintings by Neil Waldman

Exhibition is on display December 4 to January 6, 2023.
Gallery is open to the public during regular library hours.

Artist’s Statement:

When pondering the question, “Who am I?”
I think to myself,
I am a husband, a father, a friend,
a lover, a teacher, an American, a Jew,
but first and foremost . . . I am a painter,
A landscape painter.

For the earth’s landscapes brighten my darkest caverns.
They are the beating of my heart,
and their glorious colors are the things I breathe.
Raging rivers are my life’s blood.
Fields of flowers feed me.
Twisted trees and mountain meadows heal my deepest wounds.
They are like midwives
continually ushering me
into the sun sparkled mornings.

About the Artist:

Waldman’s paintings are included in many prestigious collections around the world. His oils, watercolors, and limited edition prints may be found in the capital buildings of more than a dozen nations, and in numerous major corporations.

His works have garnered many awards and honors. Notable among these is the gold medal Waldman received from the United Nations, in a closed international competition, in which he was chosen to represent the U.S. The world body selected his entry as the official poster for The International Year of Peace. Today it hangs in the halls of the U.N. General Assembly.

Waldman was commissioned by the American Brands Corporation to paint the portraits of twenty famous Americans for their centennial exhibition entitled, “The American Achievers.” The collection traveled to museums, galleries, and exhibit halls around the country, and was published in a book of the same name.

Waldman has designed postage stamps for thirteen nations, and illustrated more than fifty books, winners of the Christopher Award, the National Jewish Book Award, The School Library Journal Best Book Award, and The Newbery Award.
