Events - 9 Oct 20

JP Molenaar’s Art Show | 09/10/2020-24/11/2020 | All Day

JP Molenaar's Art Show

Stop by the library from October 9th to November 24th during opening hours to see JP Molenaar’s Art Show. The exhibition is free and open to the public! On Friday October 9th, meet the artist between 4 pm and 6 pm!

JP Molenaar is a painter and the owner of the gallery Trois Murs in Savennières. Through his art, he tangoes with the duality of life with which he colors his own life. He believes that one can choose to do, or not. To take pleasure in things others may dismiss as whimsy. He also feels that the state of mind of individuals impacts their sense of reality. In his paintings, he prefers to portray those who attempt to hide their secrets but who, ultimately, reveal them with a simple gesture, a lowering of the eyes for example. He immortalizes such moments of revelation with his paintbrush. In each piece of art he creates, he attempts to provoke emotions with splashes of color, carefully chosen, or at times, simply lustily applied.

Knit and Natter

Come along and bring your knitting,

Have a natter while you’re sitting,

Or learn to knit with wool provided,

Needles loaned and stitches guided.

Knitted garments are très chic,

So be in vogue and start this week.
