Opening Friday, January 2, Brighton Memorial Library will host a month long exhibit of "medieval" style art, featuring pieces that were created using egg tempera, a painting technique popular during the Middle Ages that involved mixing powdered pigment with egg yolk. Each of the 35 panels featured in the exhibit were painted by local Rochester artists studying under Bunny Goldstein, who has been teaching the egg tempera technique for over 40 years. The panels feature images of angels, medieval and religious scenes, portraits, still life, and other original subjects.
The exhibit will run until Saturday, January 31, and will be open during Brighton Memorial Library's normal business hours: Monday through Thursday 10 a.m. to 9 p.m.: Friday, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.; Saturday, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.; and Sunday, 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. Brighton Memorial Library is located at 2300 Elmwood Avenue. Free admission. Visit brightonlibrary.org and temperaworkshop.com for more information.
