Exhibiting July 1 - August 29, 2019

“Woods in the Library is an art exhibit that transports the reader to the woods while reading a book…”

From Boynton Park’s landscape of wrapping trees and vines comes Bayda’s inspiration for Woods in the Library which resembled “free calligraphy and art making naturally”.  Woods in the LibraryBayda creates her vision: “The natural twisting and curling lines of these vines inspire me to paint them and to use them to stretch my silk on, then paint.  As an Asian Brush painter and Japanese Saori weaver, I glorify mother nature and bring attention to its beauty and vulnerability.”

Bayda has exhibited her art with us many times.  Her portfolio not only includes her visual art of weaving, brush painting, printmaking and sculpture but as shown in past exhibits includes a message of human rights and social justice, violence against women, war and peace, and violence against children. Bayda’s exhibits are stunning and a true design of how art sparks conversation with a visual premise for social change.
