Current Library Exhibits


Lobby

Artist: Beth Hoffer  Moments in Time 

Having lived in New England all but the first three years of her life, Beth is inspired by the natural and architectural beauty of the region. Her photographs represent a wide range of the area, including the Maine Coast, Cape Cod, the White Mountains, and Boston and its suburbs. The photographs bring to mind favorite places and pleasant memories. While viewing the world through the camera lens, Beth has come to appreciate that everything changes, be it by the season, day or minute. Her work hangs in both private and public collections.

 

Wakelin Room

Artist: Davood Shahin The Choice is Ours: An Exhibition of Persian Calligraphy

“Writing has always been fun for me. I often write the same words repeatedly looking for more eye catching, more provocative and more expressive forms of their meaning. Also, my search for more gentle and harmonious spatial relationships between spaces in my architectural design has led me to search for the same in calligraphy. What is presented here is just the beginning of exploring new forms for this ancient art, taking it to the next level, while breaking boundaries.”  Davood was born, raised and educated in Iran. He moved to US with a master’s degree in Architecture and Urban Planning in 1977.   He currently practices architecture at his own firm in Needham and lives with his family in South Natick.
