John Andrea Art Exhibit To Open At Lakewood Memorial Library Today

LAKEWOOD – An exhibit featuring the works of area resident and artist John Andrea is set to open to the public today at the Lakewood Memorial Library. An official opening reception and meet the artist event hosted by Andrea will also be held on Saturday from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Andrea, a self-taught artist who paints in watercolor and acrylics, has lived in Western New York his entire life. He spends his free time taking in the outdoors, which has been the impetus for the study of painting wildlife.

Andrea’s works have been published on covers of “Florida Woods,” “Waters,” “Muskie Inc.” and “New York Conservationist” magazines. “Turkey Call” and “Fur-Fish-Game” magazines have also published Andrea’s illustrations.

Andrea has been featured by the Society of Animal Artists Inc. in a one-man show at the Art and Animal Exhibition, which was presented by the Roger Tory Peterson Institute. His paintings have also been displayed in various galleries and businesses throughout the region.

The Lakewood Memorial Library is located at 12 W. Summit St. in Lakewood. For more information, call 782-4554 or email candrea@windstream.net.
