Reception Slated for Artist Chesson at Library

Art Exhibit - Sylvia Chesson - Blue glass

An art show with the theme “Reflections on Water and Nature,” featuring Alameda resident and fused-glass artist Sylvia Chesson, will be on exhibit in July at the Main Library. A reception for the artist and introductory program is set for 6:30 to 8 p.m. on July 10 in the Regina K Stafford meeting room. Everyone is welcome.

Chesson says she loves the beauty of richly colored glass and enjoys translating her personal experiences into one-of-a-kind fused glass art works. “These works showcase the unique transparent and reflective qualities of select glasses,” event organizers say.

Also on display at the Main Library over the next month are photos by Francesca Roccaforte. Roccaforte is sharing photos of scenery like misty mountain peaks and winding curves of streams leading to the sea.

“Atmospheric mist and fog create a mood of contemplation as do the highlights and shadows of ripples of water,” according to library staff.
