Local Artists @ Your Library
Meghan Oleyer, a local artist who recently displayed
her artwork at Prosser Public Library, has overcome many
obstacles in life, including developmental delays and the
use of only her left hand. While Meghan has had no formal
training, she picked up her artistry from her grandfather
and uncle, both artists themselves. Meghan especially
enjoys painting birds, and also creates jewelry.
For aspiring artists, particularly those with a disability,
Meghan’s advice is, “Don’t stop. Don’t say ‘no.’ You can do
whatever you put your mind to. If someone says you can’t do it, show them you can.” In addition to
art, Meghan also loves reading, and was thrilled to have the opportunity to display her paintings at
Prosser Public Library – one of her favorite places!
Beth S. Goldberg is the next artist whose work will be on
display at the library from April-May 2019. Beth’s exhibition,
titled “Inspired Expressions,” will include mixed media artwork.
Beth explains, “There is a belief that art can express a basic
human truth as well as an insight into one’s inner self. The
diverse works in this exhibition were inspired by a range of
issues including music, nature, spirituality, world events, and
the human condition.”
Beth has won many awards for her art, lectured at universities,
given workshops, and consulted as an art therapist for various
organizations. Her work has been exhibited at numerous mu-
seums and galleries and is included in many prestigious corporate as well as private collections.
An Artist’s Reception will be held for Beth S. Goldberg
at Prosser Public Library on Friday, May 10, 4-5 PM.
