Some of Jean’s many friends drew from their collections of her artwork to make this exhibition for a birthday surprise. We are pleased and proud to celebrate Jean with a small selection of her extraordinary oeuvre.
There are paintings, prints, handmade books, calendars, baskets, cards, all beautifully conceived and realized by Jean’s nimble hands. The earliest of these pieces date back to the 1970s.
We, who contributed our treasures to make this show, salute Jean, love all her many works, and are excited to share them with you. Come to the library in July – this chance won’t come again once Jean’s artwork is returned to its owners.
Above is Jean Hurley’s handmade card
