“Beads and Bowls”
Toos Roozen-Evans Exhibit at Adirondack Artists Guild
Friday, June 2 through July 4
Reception Friday, June 2, 5-8 pm
Toos Roozen-Evans, a copper artist and jeweler, will be the featured artist at the Adirondack Artists Guild for the month of June.
“Beads and Bowls” is a collection that pays tribute to the craftsmanship of a self-taught artist with over two decades of experience. This unique collection marries the charm of heat-patina copper bowls, hand-hammered and shaped, with the allure of sterling silver, turquoise, and lapis earrings and necklaces. Each piece blends natural elements with a refined aesthetic that honors the organic qualities of the metals. “I never know exactly what the end result will be,” says artist Toos Roozen-Evans, “I just go where the copper takes me.”

Meredith Johnston Creative Arts Award Fund
The Westport Library Association has established the Meredith Johnston Creative Arts Award. The annual award will recognize a senior of the Boquet Valley Central School District for their extraordinary potential in the creative arts and embodiment of a strong sense of service to their community. The cash award will support the educational, creative and professional pursuits of the recipient and memorialize the legacy of Meredith for all.
Meredith Johnston (1944-2023) touched the lives of many young people in her long career as an art teacher at Westport Central School in Westport, New York. Meredith’s personal interest in her students helped so many to overcome challenges and find success through artistic expression. While her time as an art teacher brought joy to many, the positive effects of Meredith’s public service extended far beyond the classroom. Meredith led by example, cheerfully and tirelessly engaging in town activities and initiatives that benefited the community. As an innovative and accomplished ceramicist, she generously shared her work. She is remembered fondly for her creativity and enduring commitment to students, art, and community.
