WASHINGTON —Gibbs Library will host an art show featuring artist Kay Sullivan through Sept. 1 at 40 Old Union Road. An artist reception with refreshments will be held from 5 to 7 p.m. Friday, July 30.

Sullivan is a Maine-based artist whose work from nature reflects time’s passing: its rhythms, cycles, seasons. She earned her Master of Fine Arts degree from the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, and is a juried member of the Pastel Society of America. Her award-winning work has been exhibited in numerous juried and group shows and is held in private collections across the country. Sullivan lives in Palermo with her husband and daughter.

“These places in my drawings are my home: my garden, river, and woods. As I continue to explore this land which has been in my husband’s family for generations, I am acutely aware of time’s passing. It is evident in the changes of days and the rhythms of seasons. Through the movement of my hand, in my lines and marks on the page, I make my connection with nature’s energy. These marks are the evidence I leave, the history of my time here in this place,” Sullivan says about her work, according to a news release from the library.
