March Exhibit - Jennifer Knanishu

"I paint to free my soul, in turn releasing my spirit to soar into a state of Grace.

Animals inspire me. I paint for the pleasurable moments in life; the times we always remember, the memories that make us smile. When someone says 'Your painting speaks to me,' that moves and inspires me. With my paintings, I can create those moments when someone was happy. In paintings, I look for those moments when I was enjoying everything around me and truly being in the present. Through seeing and feeling the wonder of life, I work to capture those moments on canvas.

I paint from the world around me and beyond. I see daily the innate goodness of people. It is important to me that I communicate the peace and beauty of existence of goodness and wonder of our planet. As an artist, I realize that knowing that the sale of my art helps to save stray animals inspires me.

I am one of a handful of friends who uses her own funds to help save strays -- spraying/neutering, feeding, and finding homes for them. The profits from my artwork goes to help our cause."

Nighttime Arts with Maggie Zander - Altered Miniature Books

These altered miniature books were created by the Monday night art workshops.
It is an informal get-together for people who love to create. Bring your own project or work on one of our on-going ones.

No artistic experience is required - we have plenty of art supplies and friendly inspiration. There are always  lots of laughs and even occasionally baked goods or chocolate.


In the conference room
Historic Newspapers from North Salem
Compiled by the North Salem Historical Society 

From gossip, weddings, ads and obituaries to front page dramatic headlines, our latest display on old newspapers in the conference room of the Ruth Keeler Memorial Library offers a revealing  look at our past.  Take this historic tour of early newspapers starting in the 1880s and see the variety of papers and reporting styles that covered the stories of North Salem, Croton Falls, Purdys and Salem Center.

Newspapers Tell the Story in Words and Pictures will be up for approximately six months. 

Please let us know if you have copies of any old papers that we could  copy and add  to our collection.

Thank you and enjoy!
