The creativity of Linda Sterns, who does paintings, watercolors
and mixed media collages, will be on display through Nov.1 at the
Woods Gallery, located at the Huntington Woods Library, 26415

multi-textured images that evoke a mood or memory. She is an
intuitive painter using brush strokes that are fluid, flowing and
loose with an emphasis on movement, force, energy, dynamic
shapes and forms.
