Young Artists Showcase Work At Tarrytown Library

TARRYTOWN, N.Y. – Art is a way for Sleepy Hollow resident Swiltra Alejo to tell stories.

“It's more fashion-based, but I try to tell small stories throughout it,” she said while exhibiting a show covered in maps and another 3-D piece based on her mother.

Alejo was of one 10 young artists ranging in age from 11 to 25 who took part in the third annual Young Artists Exhibit at Warner Library.

Rain forced parents and friends inside the library to showcase and admire works of art instead of the usual outdoor setting amid Tarrytown Third Friday festivities.

Teen Librarian Elizabeth Siracusa said the event is designed to provide young artists with an outlet for their work. This year's art, she noted, ranged from paintings and drawings to manga and crafts.

“Everyone who participates really enjoys getting a chance to display the artistic talent that they have because I think there's not a lot of opportunity,” she said.

Tarrytown resident Jacqueline Jolly's exhibit included plush toys, buttons and t-shirts. Many of the stuffed toys she made honored the cartoon “My Little Pony” because, as she noted, it was drawn by her favorite animator.

“I used to watch it as a little kid and now the new revamped show is very good,” she said.

Jolly said it takes five to 10 hours for her to make a plush toy, depending on how complicated it is.
