The Chilmark Library is presenting an exhibition of paintings by Carol Barsha. There will be an opening reception held on Saturday, July 23 from 3 to 5 p.m.

Ms. Barsha’s exhibit is called Twenty Years at Beetlebung Farm. Her work chronicles her time spent painting at the farm for a few weeks every summer from 1998 to 2008.

Ms. Barsha’s primary medium is oils. Her attention, while at Beetlebung Farm, was turned toward its “fields and gardens, specifically, rows of plants and flowers and the fences that contain them.”

According to the artist, “What began as a beautiful and convenient place to paint undisturbed while my children attended he Chilmark Community Center Camp across the street, has evolved into a pilgrimage for me; an absolute necessity to “feed” the next year’s work in the studio.”

The exhibit runs through August 12.
