A new art display is brightening up the Byram Library. Artist Maria Esther Magallanes is showing her colorful "Summer on the Sound" exhibit. 

"My style was deconstruction. Now it's more organic with more freckles. Before, it was a little more stiff and big shapes. Now I'm playing more with little freckles, more green, more landscape. So that's how it has been changing," said Magallanes. 

Members of the library gathered to listen to music, socialize, and admire the works of art. 

"I do like art. I was very interested to see her work because I hear that she was influenced by Al Held, who was an abstract expressionist," said Byram Library member Patricia Kimura.

After 17 years of painting, Magallanes decided to do an exhibit showcasing the local area. 

"It's based in New England in the Long Island Sound. I'm from Mexico, so for me it's really different sceneries, and I love these ones," said Magallanes. 

"I'm at the beach a lot, so 'Summer on the Sound' was so appealing to me, and I had to come. I love all the blues, and they are really very attractive. I really like them," said Byram Library member Mary Whelan. 

The "Summer on the Sound" exhibit will be on display at the Byram Library until June 30.
