Artists to Discuss Their Works at Princeton Library
“BLACK BUTTERFLY #2”: This work by Terrance Cummings is part of “Manifesting Love: Prints and Poetry” on view at the Princeton Public Library through March 25. Cummings will discuss the inspiration and technique behind the works in the exhibit during a talk on Wednesday, February 8 at 7 p.m.
“Manifesting Love: Prints and Poetry,” an exhibit of the works of artist Terrance Cummings accompanied by poems by Sonia Sanchez, is on view in the Reading Room on the second floor of Princeton Public Library through March 25.
Cummings is an award-winning designer, illustrator, author, and teacher. He is a graduate of the High School of Music & Art in New York and received a BFA from Parsons School of Design. He has worked with many major book publishers, and his work is in private collections.
Cummings will discuss the inspiration and technique behind the works in the exhibit during a talk on Wednesday, February 8, at 7 p.m. in the library’s Newsroom. He will also discuss how he gained permission from Sanchez — the award-winning poet, writer, and professor — to pair the prints in this exhibit with her poems and haiku. A reception in the Reading Room will follow.
Also on view at the library through March 25 is “In Between Doodles,” an exhibit of works by artist and art educator Katelyn Liepins. The exhibit features individual pieces as well as an installation taped directly onto a wall on the second floor. Liepins’ work explores lines and how they can exist in multiple mediums beyond the traditional drawing form.
Liepins will be on hand during an open house event to discuss her work and process on Sunday, February 5 from 4 to 5 p.m. in the Technology Center. Earlier that day, she will conduct two workshops: “Creating Cool Shapes with Tape and Paint,” for children 8-11 years old, is at 1 p.m., and “Making Tape Masterpieces,” for ages 12 and older, will be at 2:30 p.m. Registration through the library’s website is required and limited for the workshops which will be held in the STEAM Studio.
