'Montage Works!' art show on display at Porter Library

"Mt Hope," a watercolor by Margie Ridenour, is one of the pieces on display at Porter Library through December.

“Montage Works!” by local artist Margie Ridenour will be the featured art show presented throughout the month of December at Westlake Porter Public Library. The exhibition is a collection of works using different media such as oil, pen & ink and watercolor. Margie, a native of Northeast Ohio, is an artist that is inspired by the diversity of nature, humans and structures. She now resides in North Olmsted after living along the Atlantic seaboard and in Appalachia. Her work has received numerous awards and some of her photography has been used in promotional literature.

“Many artists find a unique style of creativity that defines their artwork. I like to capture what I see using different media – sort of a montage of art. It gives me greater freedom of expression,” Margie said. She enjoys bringing art to those who do not consider themselves artistic in any way.

An open reception is scheduled for Saturday, Dec. 6, from 1 to 3 p.m. and the gallery will be open every day during library business hours. Many of the items on display will be for sale with a 20 percent commission going to support the library.
