Warwick — During the month of the July the Albert Wisner Public Library will feature the art of Warwick resident Ivan L. Sanford. “Outside the Lines” will be on exhibit in the library’s board room on the main level. Meet the artist: On July 5 from 6 to 8 p.m. visitors to the exhibit will have an opportunity to meet Sanford and learn more about his art. Sanford is currently creating art with oil sticks on wood panels. He describes his work in this way: “These many thoughts, memories and visions are what I see and what I work with to make my art. It is abstract and most of it is intuitive, though some are nominally representational. I leave it to the viewer to contemplate on what they see, as a finished painting or a form, shape or color…I cannot explain my art in academic or religious terms…I just need to do it and I do, not always with the success originally aimed for…but always pushing, learning and never without effort.” To see more of Sanford’s work, visit www.ivanlsanford.com.
