Three new art exhibitions open in Alemany Library galleries

The opening receptions were January 26 for three concurrent art exhibitions in Alemany Library.

Exhibits for Kim Vanderheiden’s “The Right to Remain Human” and Patricia Montgomery’s “Honoring the Heroines of the Civil Rights Movement” are on display in the first-floor San Marco Gallery through March 18 while Patricia Oji's "Auspicious Beginnings" is on display through May 22 in the Community Gallery on the second floor during normal Alemany Library business hours.

Born in Wisconsin, Vanderheiden is a Bay Area artist whose work explores concepts of restorative justice, spiritual justice, and the human need for connection.

Montgomery is a master quilter who has created a series of quits for “Heroines” structured in the shape of a swing coat.

The “Auspicious Beginnings” paintings by Oji, who lives in Marin County, feature images of good fortune to mark 2017.
