Joan Clark will be the featured artist for the May art exhibition at the Bainbridge Public Library.

Clark’s exhibit, “People and Animals,” will open during the First Friday Art Walk. A reception with the artist is planned for 5 to 7 p.m. Friday, May 3 during the Art Walk.

“My mother was instrumental in the start of my painting ‘career,’” Clark recalled. “She was a painter herself and gave me my first set of brushes, frames and tubes of paint at the age of 10.”

“You could say I’m mostly a self-taught painter. Most of my painting efforts came during the late ’70s and ’80s before I started to work outside the home. When I retired five years ago, I enthusiastically picked up the paint brush again and have been enjoying it since,” she added.

Her favorite subjects are people and animals, and most of her artwork consists of oil on canvas or oil on Shoji paper.

The exhibit is on display through the month of May in the meeting room at the library.
