Throughout the months of April and May, Fort Bend County Libraries’ First Colony Branch Library will exhibit a collection of artwork depicting Central and South America. The exhibit may be viewed in the display cases of the library, located at 2121 Austin Parkway in Sugar Land.
The exhibit is courtesy of Consuelo Forray, a member of the Youth Services staff at the library. The collection includes paintings that Forray has done herself, as well as pieces she has collected over the years from places she has lived or visited. Most are landscape paintings done in oils and acrylics, and feature scenes from Ecuador, Panama, Chile, and El Salvador.
“The pieces recall remembrances of special places for me,” says Forray. “The painting, ‘Woman Harvesting Cabbages en La Sierra, Ecuador’ reminds me of the seven years I lived in that country.”
The exhibit may be viewed during regular library hours. For more information, call the branch library at 281-238-2800.
