The Ringwood Library in conjunction with the St. Catherine of Bologna Patron of the Arts Association presents the artistry of Lynda Edwards which will be on display from November 19th until December 1st, 2018.

About the Artist:

A modern day artist, Edwards exhibits a command of the canvas and a refreshing interpretation of technical style. Edwards’ bold impressionistic landscapes and surrealistic studies are symbolic of her life experiences , as well of her pursuit of knowledge .Today she is continuously cultivating creativity in her community.

A graduate of the Newark School of Fine and Industrial Arts, Edwards began honing her skills under James McGinley and other master painters while at school. Her primary subjects were of bold impressionistic landscapes, city scenes & portraits that provoked emotional awareness. Lynda’s images were drawn from her life experience and places where she lived and travelled.

Early in her career her use of lush & vibrant colors brought a fantastic surrealist quality to her work. Edwards exhibits a command of the canvas and a refreshing interpretation of technical style. Incorporating eyes became a recurring motif in her surrealistic work within her paintings. It is a type of art provoked by the consciousness of the forces and tensions that surround humankind.
