June Art Exhibit at the Library
NOTES PAINTED IN FLOWERS, Flower Themes by Jan Aiello on exhibit June 1 through June 29.

Jan Aiello is an artist working in Croton-on-Hudson, and a member of the Briarcliff Manor Garden Club. Her work uses color balance and light to invoke a sense of space and movement. Flowers and spring orchards have been a favorite subject throughout her career. Some of her garden pieces are not paintings or block prints—but stained glass windows! She is a graduate of The Cooper Union, NYC., and Manhattanville College. Ms. Aiello taught art at Hendrick Hudson High School for 18 years and still teaches from her Croton studio. She is a puppeteer, specializing in community building projects that celebrate diversity and culture. Two large parade puppets will be featured in the Croton Summerfest parade June 5th.
