Art Exhibit: to July 22
Libby Edelman & Paula Marian

The Sherman Library is pleased to announce a dual art exhibit by two Sherman resident artists, Libby Edelman and Paula Marian.  These two artists were paired together in theme as Libby's photographs and Paula's pottery take you on an artistic journey to Cuba.

 Edelman3  Edelman4
Libby Edelman, co-founder of Sam Edelman, fell in love with traveling at a young age. During different excursions to exotic destinations around the world, Libby discovered she’d developed a passion and talent for photography. Giver her journalistic background and keen eye for a good story, it’s no surprise Libby’s photographs have a soulful, photojournalistic element to them.

“I love wandering down different back streets, peering into windows, peeking around corners… To capture the elements of everyday life that make a beautiful photograph, you have to always be looking for the story behind people and places.”
This series of photographs entitled “Walk of Life” was shot in Havana, Cuba in 1996 with a Nikon F2 in black and white film.

Paula Sibrack Marian, of Sherman, CT, earned a Masters Degree in Ceramics from Eastern Michigan University. She has been a potter for 45 years. Recently retired as Head Art Teacher at New Milford High School, Paula taught Ceramics, Graphic Design and Advertising Art & Design. She was awarded a year sabbatical in 2005, which was spent as a research intern at the Metropolitan Museum of Art and as a student at Parsons School of Design studying Decorative Arts.

Her interest in global ceramics led to several study and travel grants. Paula has studied pit firing in Mexico, slip trailing in Romania, porcelain making in China and political art in Cuba.  She organized a tour of the Havana Art Biennial last year.
Paula has worked with most clay bodies and firing temperatures, her work is both functional and decorative. The glaze application of the pieces seen in this show reflects the many weathered coats of peeling, overlapping paint seen on Havana buildings.
