art show

Current Display:

The art exhibit at Oak Ridge Public Library for March consists of a collection of colorful paintings and realistic drawings created by local artist, Barbara Mandrus.


Ms. Mandrus describes the exhibit as a sampling of her artistic style. Detailed drawings of a blue jay, a woodpecker, and a bear show the influence of the natural world on her art. Nature also inspires her whimsical, comedic style. “I smell bacon!” chime a group of hungry robins searching for springtime food. Colorful beta fish and a flying squirrel converse with other animals and imagine ninja superpowers. Another thought provoking painting shows the influence of the surrealist artist, Rene Magritte.
