Art Show:
The Journey of Dressler Smith

Join us for a unique art show at the Sea Isle City Library, featuring the works of local artist, Dressler Smith.

Saturday, May 21st
12pm – 4pm
at the Sea Isle City Library

Dressler Smith is a painter, author, and pastel colorist, who favors tranquil landscapes which invoke both awe and reverence. Her work is designed to touch the human spirit.
Many of her works focus on landscapes of sunrises, morning light, and morning skies, which for her, symbolize new beginnings. She has chosen pastel as her primary medium because of its vibrancy. The clean, rich colors of pure pigment, combined with her affinity for nature and all things spiritual, result in landscapes filled with peace and tranquility, and a place to start anew. Dressler's art has been received by Oprah Winfrey, former NFL quarterback Randall Cunningham, and the late Coretta Scott King.

All events are tentatively scheduled and may change. Please refer to the CMCL Online Events Calendar, the CMCL website, or follow us on social media for any and all updates.
