Jan. 6, 2020: OSilas Gallery is pleased to present an evening talk (online) by internationally acclaimed artist Richard Haas on January 14th at 7:00 PM.
Mr. Haas will discuss his 60-year career, which is rooted in his fascination with architecture. From time spent during his youth in Wisconsin at Frank Lloyd Wright’s studio and worksites to his extensive travels creating murals, indoors and outdoors, in cities and towns across the Unites States, Richard will share his love of art and architecture with our viewers and discuss his experience creating art in public spaces.
During this talk, Mr. Haas will highlight many of his works in New York, including his mural on 112 Prince Street in New York City, which, more than any other of his murals, was the catalyst that led to the creation of over 100 interior and exterior murals throughout the world.
Richard Haas is a New York-based artist who is best known for architectural murals and his use of the trompe l’oeil style. Mr. Haas’ work has received awards from the American Institute of Architects Medal of Honor, 1977, Guggenheim Fellowship 1983, National Endowment of Arts award l987, Distinguished Alumnus Award University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee 1991, Jimmy Ernst award, American Academy of Arts and Letters, New York 2005.
His drawings, prints, gouaches and models of buildings and cities may be found in the permanent collections of many museums, including the nearby Museum of Modern Art, New York City, and Hudson River Museum, Yonkers. www.richardhaas.com

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.
