The Boulder Junction Public Library welcomes the public to view their next “Art in the Library” exhibit. The Library selected local artist Tim Black. His work will be on display in the Reading Room, above the photocopier and in the Children’s Area during regular library hours.

Tim Black began painting and drawing landscapes of the Texas Gulf Coast when he was around 10 years old. Growing up with dyslexia and finding the written word to be a confusing ordeal, the world had become much more visual to him. He was awarded a full scholarship to the Arkansas arts center in 1965 and continued there until 1968, graduating with a triple major. He also attended, with full scholarship, the Peninsula School of Art and the Aspen School of Art in the summers of 1966 and 1967. His education consisted of intense study of the human figure in drawing, painting and sculpture.

In the 1980s, Tim taught himself large format photography and spent 10 years pursuing that interest. He then returned to painting with a different attitude toward painting still life, portraits, and landscapes.  In 2012, he decided to move away from the art scene after having shown in galleries in DC, Chicago and St. Louis.  He moved to the Northwoods where he hoped to delve into whatever might interest him as a painter.
