They ranged from sunflower paintings to doll clothes to hats.

Local residents had an opportunity to exhibit their works of art during the month of July at the Secaucus Public Library and Business Resource Center. The Residents’ Art Display featured a variety of art forms.

“Sometimes people think of art as only paintings, but art is expressed in many forms,” said Library Director Jenifer May.

“The art display annually draws many remarkable entries from our very talented residents.”

Several artists gathered at the library for a special reception held on July 23 including Gracie Liccardo, who had returned to painting after a long hiatus. Her sunflower paintings were featured at the exhibit.

Photographer Harmon Kaplan had his images on display. He also teaches a workshop on photography the fourth Wednesday of each month at the library.

Annette Shaw had many of her creative talents on display from the hats she makes to a crocheted dress for a doll.

The library also hosts a children’s art display during “Student Art Month” each November.
