Ringwood Library Exhibits



The curators of the St. Catherine of Bologna Patron of the Arts Association along with the Ringwood Public Library present the vibrant images of the watercolor art of Gail Hawthorne now on on display in the main floor gallery until the end of March, 2019.

Gail is a self-taught artist, photographer and poet who continues to capture moments in time that are uniquely her own style. She feels that a picture is a "Poem wthout Words". She is very appreciative of her sight to enjoy God's work of art.

 Hawthorne has won many honors for her photography including those at the annual St. Catherine of Bologna Patron of the Arts Association Exhibition and the Ringwood Manor Association of the Arts. She has displayed some of her photographs and her photographic greeting cards at the Pequannock Township Public Library.

She is a volunteer photographer at the New Jersey State Botanical Garden at Skylands. Her photos have appeared in Skylands: The Garden of the Garden Statebook published in 2011. In 2016 she began exhibiting her Watercolors at the Pequannock Public Library, the Ringwood Public Library and the Kinnelon Library.
