The Alameda Free Library, 1550 Oak St., is exhibiting works by Wendy Rabin and Anthony Holdsworth through Saturday, Oct. 1. Visitors can view Rabin's painting in the Regina K. Stafford meeting rooms on the first floor and Holdsworth's works on the second floor.
Rabin, who paints in oils, has had a lifetime interest in art and studied at the California College of Arts and Crafts (now California College of the Arts) and at the Leighton Studio in San Francisco. Rabin has worked as a picture framer and art restorer. Her work includes landscapes, portraits and inspirational art.
Plein Air painter and teacher Anthony Holdsworth has worked on location in San Francisco and Oakland. Color theory and Perceptionism provide a foundation for his work. He weaves qualities of light throughout a painting to create interacting harmonies that compel attention and convey a mood.
He has painted markets, cafes, office buildings, busy intersections, deserted corners and many other locations along with a variety of individuals who inhabit these landscapes.
