Kelly Library Receives Contemporary Art Donation

Four of these are installed on the ground floor behind the Research Commons. On the right is a large painting entitled “Book of Hours” by Carol Wainio. The other three works all deal with the theme of a tree. The first, by Dianne Bos, is a photograph taken with a pinhole camera, entitled “Flooded Seine, Paris.” Next to it is a large watercolour of the trunk of a “White Pine” by Robert Weins. The last work, “Mid-Afternoon,” is an oil painting by Richard Gorman.

On the second floor is an elegant but playful sculptural work by Roland Brenner, “Am I Sinking?” Father Donovan points out that the rock that seems to pull the figure down is in fact holding him up.
