The Oswego Public Library is featuring the work of Bonnie Trovato Sommers in its Art Gallery this September. Working in acrylic, she brings to life various birds on oval shape backgrounds which lend themselves to group arrangements. While other animals are represented, the focus is on birds.
Trovato Sommers is a self-taught artist who attributes her talent to God. She has lived in the Fulton area all her life. As a member of the Fulton Art Association, she has exhibited at their annual shows, and has her work in gift shops in the small resort towns of the Adirondacks. At one time, she had a gift shop on county Route 6, “the Back Woodshed” where she sold her artwork, wild bird, and wildlife items.
The Oswego Public Library Art Gallery is open during regular library hours, and is located outside the Community Room on the Lower Level.
