Art Reception November 8th for James Blandini

Join us Thursday, November 8 from 7:00 – 8:00 p.m. for a Reception of our Rotating Art November Artist James Blandini! As a Boston area native and second generation Italian American, Blandini’s paintings and drawings are an exploration of the human condition and the search for spirituality through realistic portrayal. He is drawn to the rich visual imagery found in the New Testament, the Hebrew Bible, mythology, spirituality and works of literature.

Blandini’s art will be on display at the Library through the month of November.
