These works capture the serenity of Oswego and focus on our extensive waterfront.

An artist’s reception will be held at 6:30 p.m. on May 14.

Light refreshments will be available along with a time to talk with Brazak about her photography and other topics.

Brazak’s artist statement: “I moved to Oswego three years ago and attended SUNY Oswego where I received a degree in political science and a minor in environmental sustainability. Since my arrival, I have found the water and the sunsets compelling. I was a full-time freelance photographer in Syracuse for nearly two decades but never was much for landscapes until I started sailing on Lake Ontario. Now, I take notice of the lake and the river every time I drive through town.  I will actually go out of my way and drive home through the campus, past Rudy’s and along the water! I’ve learned to watch the western sky and pay close attention to not only the weather, but also the quality of the light. There is a lot of natural beauty here in Oswego that I never knew existed. I am learning to love the area, its history and especially its future.”

The Oswego Public Library is open 10 a.m. -8 p.m. Monday through Thursday and closes at 5 p.m. on Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
