Two summer art exhibits announced at OP library

(July 23, 2015) The Friends of the Ocean Pines Library announces two art exhibits for the coming months.  
In the main common areas of the library, July artist of the month is watercolorist Marcy Snyder.
She discovered her love and passion for the arts in high school. She attended Colorado Women’s College and graduated with a degree in fine arts.  
Snyder has continued taking art classes and has studied at the Wicomico Art Institute, Wor-Wic Community College Council and Salisbury University. She is now studying with Kate Cashman at Random Juxtaposition and is a former board member at Worcester Arts Council.  
She exhibits on a regular basis as a member of The Art League of Ocean City Center for Arts and as a COOP member at the Worcester County Arts Council in Berlin. Snyder enjoys interpreting what she observes in nature and seeing it come to life in her work. This exhibit is scheduled July.
The artist spotlight exhibit will feature photographer John McManus 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. He 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, McManus has developed a technique which blends the richness of color photography with the soft beauty of oils and water colors.  
The images are like memories, rich with joy yet softer with age. This exhibit is scheduled to run July and August.
