For over thirty years, Gordon has worked as an artist, visualizing and developing ideas in landscape, still life, portraiture, figurative, and abstract paintings.   He places great importance in the study of the structure and composition of his subjects as well as communicating the emotional relationship that he develops with the painting during the creative process.

Gordon believes that achieving a kinship between realism and abstraction with multi-layered surfaces is a primary goal for each painting.  View his website at:

The public is invited to view his paintings during regular library hours.

Friends of the Brentwood Library December showcase featuring Jewelry artist

The December showcase artist is TevaJane, a local artist who creates precious metal jewelry with a focus on nature.

TevaJane’s name has its origin in the Middle Ages from the Hebrew language meaning, “of nature.”  Her parents gave her the name not knowing the meaning, but it could not have been a better name to define her life, personality and outlook on the world.  TevaJane believes that Nature has a voice, and a renewable energy that is timeless.  Nature’s creations can be a simple beauty or the most intricate designs imaginable.  She believes that no creation exists just for admiration, but that there is a circle of purpose…an intention and an energy all to itself.

TevaJane says she designs, “with the intention to reflect how nature flows and to capture that slice of beauty and energy that I see and feel for what each piece represents.”  View her website at:
