Library to host reception, exhibit for local artist

Karen O’Lone-Hahn

WEST GROVE – Landenberg artist Karen O’Lone-Hahn has created many paintings as well as pottery, books, and other items in her own folk-art style. From nostalgic black-and-white portraits to whimsical cows and cats in colorful acrylics, O’Lone-Hahn’s works express a rich and talented imagination. Now her art is on view at Avon Grove Library, where paintings and signed copies of her books are available for sale through March.

“It’s exciting to have a well-known artist like Karen exhibiting here,” said Lori Schwabenbauer, director of Avon Grove Library. “One of our objectives as a public library is to bring the arts and art education to our citizens.”

The library will host a reception for O’Lone-Hahn on Saturday, January 28, 4-6 p.m. All are invited to meet the artist, discuss her works, and enjoy free refreshments. No registration is necessary.

“Art has been my constant companion and I am grateful to be a creative force in the world,” said O’Lone-Hahn, whose desire is to create beauty, enjoyment and inspiration for those who see her works. “Over the years, I have spent time painting the people, memories and visions from my own life as well as developing multiple series of subjects that I am interested in or which come from my unfettered imagination.”

Located in the heart of West Grove, Pa., Avon Grove Library is a vital educational institution, offering equal opportunity for self-directed learning, research assistance, and enriching experiences to over 30,000 people of all ages in southern Chester County. The library is a member of the Chester County Library System. Learn more at:
