Join us at the library Thursday, September 18th at 6:30 PM for an artist reception in honor of Patricia Carley and her late son, John.  The “Heart to Heart” art show is on display here at the library through the end of October.  Come meet Patricia and enjoy some light refreshments while checking out the artwork.


Patricia Carley is both poet and painter.  She began writing as a young girl and painting as an adult.  Her recurring theme of Native America Spirit Guides is influenced by the work of Susan Seddon Boulet.  Many of her watercolors are accompanied by her poetry.  She lives in Troy and on Glass Lake.


Patricia’s son John attended the ARC of Rensselaer County programs from 2001 until his death in 2012 at the age of 31.  He began flourishing as an artist under the guidance of Carolyn Adams at the Art Project at Brunswick Center Services.  He enjoyed various mediums and designs, eventually settling on themes with Oriental Flair.


The title of the show comes from the book Heart to Heart: Our Journey as Mother and Son, Patricia wrote and published in 2010.  Visit her website at www.patriciacarley.com
