Meet artist Peggy Martinez and watch as she creates a beautiful painting right in the Arts Division. Peggy Martinez‘s vibrant paintings have won awards and have been featured in “American Art Collector” magazine. She participated in the 2014 series “Inspiration” by creating a painting during an RPO performance. The Rochester Democrat and Chronicle chose her as a “Woman to Watch,” both for her artistic talents and the work she has done in the community, especially to raise awareness of pediatric asthma. Her exhibit “Gift of the Rose” was featured in the 2014 PBS series “Cycle of Health” and honors the memory of her sister who suffered from asthma. Stop by, ask questions, observe art being created, and be inspired! During September, there will be a display of Ms. Martinez’s paintings in the Reidman display cases in the Arts Division. This program has been made possible thanks to the generous support of the Friends and Foundation of the Rochester Public Library.
