Visitors to the Norway Memorial Library at 258 Main St. can view an art exhibit in the Reference Room. “Quiet Please” features 15 paintings by Peter Herley.

About his art exhibition he writes: “With pests in the world, coming from all directions, we need a place to be calm and reflect. With that, Quiet Please…,” according to a press release from Alana DePerte, cataloging and reference services librarian.

Herley, who lives in Norway, has enjoyed being part of the art scene, both as an observer and a participant, for as long as he can remember. He was introduced to art in kindergarten when he learned to draw and paint with his fingers. His father often took him to museums in New York. He was captivated by Jackson Pollack’s work and wanted to be as good as him.

After graduating from Rutgers with a Bachelor of Fine Arts and a minor in Education, he began submitting his work and securing exhibitions in galleries and libraries in New Jersey and New York.

This exhibition is visible whenever the library is open until Saturday, November 12. The exhibition opened on October 1. There is a guestbook in the reference room for visitor comments.

A closing artist reception with light refreshments is scheduled from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. on Wednesday, November 9.
