Pop at the Pool, a new exhibit by Somerset Artist Sam Caponegro will be on display at the Highland Park Public Library, 31 North Fifth Avenue, from December 4 through December 30, 2017. His paintings will be displayed in the meeting room and also in the main hall display case. An art reception will be held on Sunday, December 11 from 2:00 PM through 4:00 PM.
Sam Caponegro is a local Jersey artist who taught in the Union Public School System for 37 years. After spending many summers in Florida, he became influenced by the glorious water of Hollywood. His work reflects the color, music, and especially the people of the Florida east coast.
He works in bright watercolors mounted on large sheets of wood. This show, A Year by the Pool in Hollywood, Florida, portrays the friends he has met lounging by the water’s edge.
“When we were young we spent endless time frolicking by the pool having so much fun Then we filled our TIME with the business of work, raising families, chasing a dream Now we are once again spending our time frolicking by the pool,” Sam Caponegro said.
