“Inspired Together” Exhibit at Princeton Public Library

“SUNCATCHER”: This acrylic painting by William Plank is featured in “Inspired Together,” his joint exhibit with Helene Plank, on view at Princeton Public Library through June 1. An art talk and exhibit opening are on March 27 at 6:30 p.m.

Artists Helene Plank and William Plank discuss “Inspired Together,” a joint exhibit of their work, on Wednesday, March 27, at 6:30 p.m. at Princeton Public Library. The presentation will be in the Community Room prior to the exhibit’s official opening in the second floor Reading Room.

Helene Plank gives new life to discarded buttons and beads by combining them to form intricate mosaics on canvas. The materials are hand sewn, rather than glued, to the canvas and are influenced by artist Georges Seurat and his techniques of optical blending.

The subject matter of William Plank’s acrylic paintings ranges from realistic landscapes and portraits to a variety of abstract concepts and themes. Whether it’s visualizing a piece of classical music on canvas or painting a landscape in a traditional manner, he wants the imagery shown to resonate with emotion. The artist cites Caspar David Friedrich, Andrew Wyeth, and James Wyeth as influences.

“Inspired Together” will be on view through June 1.
