October Art Display at the Library

Jeanette Martone's Face to Face: Drawings of common humanity and fragility of cultures

Outside by Jeanette Marton
Jeanette Martone works from photos taken during her travels to the developing world where she volunteers for projects to assist the local community.  By limiting color, and emphasizing texture in her pencil drawings, attention is focused on the essential elements of the subject.
Ms. Martone attended SUNY Purchase, took courses in botanical illustration at the New York Botanical Gardens, and also spent a semester studying design and anthropology at the University of Copenhagen, Denmark.
Her works have been exhibited at museums and galleries in the U.S and abroad, including the Neuberger Museum in Purchase, New York, SXU Gallery at St. Xavier University, and Ai Gallery at the Illinois Institute of Art in Chicago, Illinois. In New York City, her work has been featured in exhibitions at Artists’ Space, Lincoln Center, Marymount Manhattan College Gallery, and the New York Botanical Gardens.  Her work has been published in the magazines “The Artists’ Magazine”, “American Artist Drawing”, “Art Calendar”, “The Other Side” and the books “Portrait Inspirations, “The Best of Oil Painting”, and “The Distillery”.
