HARRISON, N.Y. - A new art exhibit will be on display at the Harrison Public Library through February, showcasing the work of Westchester artist Danny Henderson.
"Signals From Outer Space: Turn of the Century Artworks" includes abstract paintings, drawings, media compositions and photos and will be presented by the Harrison Council for the Arts. The work will be up at the downtown Harrison library from Feb. 5 to Feb. 27 and an opening reception on Feb. 11 will celebrate the artist from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m.
Henderson's artistic background doesn't go deep into his past, as he painted his first picture when he was 35-years-old. He said his experience as an artist has been almost therapeutic for him.
Art is many things to me," Henderson said. "Nowadays, its even a wonderful way for me to meditate."
For the past 12 years, Henderson has taken classes in art and art history at the National Academy School of Fine Arts and Westchester Community College. He's also exhibited locally and in Canada and has won many awards.
When he's not painting, Henderson is also a singer/songwriter known as Country Man Dan. He has performed extensively and produced and distributed recordings of various performances.
"I find the ability to become very focused in the creative process, while finding ways to express my feelings and thoughts, with lines and marks - from this comes a representation of a rather personal experience, which also reflects my efforts towards creating something memorable," Henderson said. The exhibit can be viewed Monday and Wednesday from 9:30 a.m. to 9 p.m., Tuesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday from 9:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. and Sunday from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. For information call (914)835-0324 or visit the library's website .
