The Fitzgerald Art Gallery, located in the hallway between the Circulation area and the Referance area was dedicated in recognition of services to the Warner Library by Gerald Fitzgerald. Mr. Fitzgerald was a trustee of the library from 1941-1969 and president of the trustees from 1953-1969.
Each month, a different artist or group of artists showcase their work in the gallery. These artworks can range from traditional paintings and renderings to modern photography and abstracts, each reflecting the artist's personal style and perspective of the world.
Local artists are always welcome to enquire about utilizing the gallery space. Please read the Gallery Regulations and contact the Warner Library to schedule a display.

About the Artist
I was born in, and grew up in the Bronx. I loved art as a child and I never was far from my Venus Paradise pencils. I worked in the commercial art field after attending The School of Visual arts in NYC following my graduation from The H.S. of Art & Design. After six years of doing ad agency and studio board work I left the art field for the printing industry. I always kept my hand in art with occasional illustrations for magazines, and books, and painting for pleasure
I married the beautiful girl whose drawing board was next to mine at the last ad agency I worked for. Her talent and advice have always inspired me. In 2005 after 12 years of being involved with the ongoing production of a beautiful Hebrew prayer book which included my illustrations and writings, I wrote and illustrated a book of meditations. I found equal reward in writing as I have in painting. After my retirement in 2011 I began painting realistic landscapes in a somewhat surrealist fashion. All my paintings are done in acrylic paint, often with vibrant colors. Perhaps my early commercial work doing cartoon illustration had left that need in me. My images are often in primary colors similar to comic art. My painting reflects my love of the sky and water and the peace they bring. I have had 3 showings in Westchester beginning in 2013 and I’m excited to be preparing for my forth at the Warner Library in Tarrytown in October 2014. I am very proud of an award I received from NY State for my work which was presented to me by Senator George Latimer during my show at the Larchmont Library.
