Featured Artists of the Week
Betty Librizzi Medium: Painting and Drawing. For the last 13+ years I’ve worked mainly in oils on canvas with a few experiments in oil on wood. I’ve been re-exploring the world of acrylic and mixed-media and re-visiting my first love, watercolor. I am a long-time member of the Hackensack Art Club which was established in 1937. For the last 6 years I’ve been painting portraits with a group of artists from 3 sister art clubs (Hackensack Art Club, Rutherford Art Association and Fort Lee Art Club) at the Wallington Senior Center.
Monica Chavarria-Malini is known as the “Tree lady”. She was born in Medellin-Colombia, in the city of "The Eternal Spring". That is why her pictorial work is very colorful, because she grew up surrounded by flowers and fruit trees. Her paintings depict a tribute to the cultural heritage of her country Colombia, and love for life. Monica Chavarria is a figurative artist, but with a great expressionist-surrealist influence. Some of her paintings show a festival of trees in which human feelings are reflected through their branches that touch and hug each other.
