Star Light, Star Bright--Art in the Library

Our latest art exhibit is that of local artist Brandon Anthony. Brandon's unique approach to this collection was inspired by star charts of the constellations. Maps of the stars were broken down into segments, then interpreted in oil on canvas through Mr. Anthony's creative vision, use of color, and geometric designs.

Those who are familiar with the constellations and their patterns will see the subtle ways in which Brandon has revealed maps of the stars in the lines and intersections he painted. Vibrant colors that blend and contrast remind one of Stanley Kubrick's photographic and camera innovations in his film 2001: A Space Odyssey.

On Tuesday, Feb. 19, students in the astronomy class were treated to a discussion and showing by Mr. Anthony when they came as a group to see the exhibit.

Come by and enjoy these energetic art works and see if you can find the hidden constellations.
