McManus, Lampieri to display work in Pines

(Aug. 13, 2015) Two artists will display their work at the Ocean Pines library this month.
The Artist Spotlight Exhibit features photographer John McManus. His pieces are in the two computer rooms to the right of the common areas of the library.
McManus has been photographing the rivers, bays harbors and wildlife of Pennsylvania and Ocean City for nearly three decades. He visits Ocean City often where he has a condo.
McManus has been a professional photographer for more than 20 years. As a graduate of the Art Institute, he constantly strives for excellence in all the images he creates. In recent years, with the advances in digital technology, he has developed a technique which blends the richness of color photography with the soft beauty of oils and water colors.
His show will run through the end of August.
Screen painting artist John Lampieri’s exhibit is in the main common areas of the library. Lampieri, who resides in Bishopville, paints screens in the Baltimore Folk Art Tradition. He remembers, and is inspired by, the memory of these functional screens growing up as a child in Baltimore.  
He uses the techniques of the original masters and creates hand-painted screens for windows, doors, porches, and also as wall art. He is well known in art circles and successfully teaches this traditional folk art technique to all ages.  
His exhibit is scheduled in the main common areas during August and September.
