The summer art exhibit at the Ulysses Philomathic library can be viewed during library open hours, and features the work of scientific illustrator Paula Bensadoun of Ithaca. Included are 18 framed pieces of watercolor and other media, and a display case showing examples of accurate scholarly illustration and whimsical and decorative objects. Some of the prints, paintings, and notecards are for sale.
Retired as staff illustrator in the Zoology department at Cornell University, she specializes in biological, medical, and botanical subjects. She teaches drawing, dust rendering, landscape drawing as well as popular workshops about animal bones for children. She is a fine choice of artist for this year’s summer reading emphasis on science.
