img_1044The art wall is featuring paintings from Charlotte Hellerqvist this month. Hellerqvist has been a part of the Brentwood community since 1976, and comes from a long line of artists on her mother’s side. Despite her artistic lineage,  Charlotte began painting in 2000, and she studied art under Renee LaRose, Melanie Jackson, and Charles Brindley, and also at the Gulf Coast Museum of Art in partnership with St. Petersburg College.

Hellerqvist is a native of Sweden, and her work often reflects her Swedish roots with depictions of winter scenes, crisp white birch trees, and water. Take a look at some of her beautiful scenes this month in the library!

Presented by The Friends of The Brentwood Library:

Each month, The Brentwood Library hosts two local artists on the Friends of the Brentwood Library (FOBL) Gallery Wall and Showcase Display. Please take a few extra moments the next time you visit to pause and savor these artists’ creations.

Each artist who displays their collection on the FOBL Gallery Wall contributes one piece to the our Art Lending Library. With over 230 pieces to choose from, patrons are able to check them out for ninety days. This artwork is a beautiful addition to the library that includes original artwork in acrylics, oils, pen and ink, pastels, photographs, and water colors. A full, detailed description of most items can be found in the Digital Collection on the library’s website.
