By Elizabeth Vranka, Executive Director, OSilas Gallery at Concordia College


Apr. 10, 2019:  OSilas Gallery at Concordia College recently opened Bronxville Collects: Selections in Contemporary Art from the Local Collector.  This exhibition features works by both established and emerging artists that are on loan from five Bronxville families.

Collector preferences in art are very personal. A collector may be drawn to a particular work because of the time period during which it was created, its medium, its color palette, its subject matter, or myriad other reasons.

This contemporary art exhibition is meant to explore the reasons these collectors acquire art and their connection to the artwork featured in Bronxville Collects.  While their motivations for collecting and their tastes in art may differ, the one thing that all the collectors whose works are featured in the exhibition share is a desire to have art be part of the fabric of their daily lives.

Bronxville Collects will be on show through April 27 at OSilas Gallery in the Donald A. Krenz Academic Center on the second level of Scheele Memorial Library on the campus of Concordia College at 171 White Plains Road in Bronxville.

Free and ample parking is available on campus and is accessible via entry on Concordia Place off of White Plains Road. Gallery hours are Tues./Wed./Fri., noon to 5:00 pm; Thurs., noon to 7:00 pm; and Sat., 2:00 to 5:00 pm. The gallery will be closed April 18 to 22 in observance of the Easter holiday. Please see osilasgallery.org for more information about exhibitions, special events, and programs

Bronxville Public Library

Bronxville Public Library

The Bronxville Public Library traces its origins back to 1875, when it was a small lending library housed in a room attached to the “Bronxville Model School.” The Library was officially chartered in 1906 and moved into the Village Hall Building. The needs of the library grew with the town and, in 1942, a new standalone building was erected, which is where the Library is today. Over the years, the Library was renovated and expanded to meet the needs of the community.

The Library has wonderful resources for adults and children and offers a comfortable and relaxing environment. The Library also houses a fine art collection, consisting principally of Bronxville painters and sculptors.

The Library offers special events, art exhibitions, and programs for adults, young adults and children.  All events are open to the public, unless otherwise indicated.
