(TOMS RIVER, NJ) -- Local vistas captured on canvas by Ocean County artist Errol “Bud” Sylvester will be on display throughout the month of February at the Ocean County Library Toms River Branch. “Of Land and Sea” will occupy the McConnell Gallery.
“Working with oil paints, brush and knife allows me to completely cover my canvas with common undertones and colors that are important to my final results,” Sylvester said. “I like to use a specific color undertone…to help create an overall warm feeling or mood.”
Born and raised in Trenton, Sylvester received his art training as a college student. He painted in spare time while designing and building exhibits for the New Jersey State Museum, directing advertising for the Trenton Times, and entering the corporate world.
Relocating to Ocean County after retirement, Bud rekindled his passion for painting. He has found inspiration in the scenery of the shore, the changing of seasons, and the sights he discovered during sojourns through France and Italy.
“Of Land and Sea” is free and open to the public for viewing during regular Branch operating hours. No registration is required to view the exhibit. For more information, click here, visit the Toms River Branch, 101 Washington Street, or call (732) 349-6200, ext. 5100.
