Holmdel Municipal Building
A selection of Fine Art Oil Portraits, featuring formal portraits to more casual portraits, was on display. Beautiful color and drama of lighting in Irene’s images accentuate the projection of her subject’s personality from the canvas.

Paul Hartley - The Man and His Legacy
March 25 - April 25, 2010
Paul Hartley was a former art teacher at East Carolina University, Greenville, North Carolina. The Exhibition will feature his former students. Irene displayed three paintings in this show.
LEFT: As you walk into Paul Hartley’s office, you find it welcoming. He looks up, takes his glasses off and asks how you are. The figure behind him is a self- portrait. It is a stuffed torso with real shoes all wrapped in saran wrap. I always loved what the memorabilia surrounding him told about the person.
