SOUTHINGTON - The Southington Public Library’s November Artist of the Month is Ruxandra Iliescu.
Iliescu left her job as a mechanical engineer to pursue a more creative career and follow her lifelong dream of becoming a graphic designer.
Since making this decision she has won numerous awards including a Student Award for Excellence at the Connecticut Art Director Club’s 27th Annual Award Show.
She was also awarded Best in Photography in 1998 and an Honorable Mention at the Southington Art Show in 2000 and 2003.
Iloiescu’s latest pursuit includes being a member of the Castle Craig Camera Club in Meriden and taking painting classes at the New Britain Museum of American Art. She finds inspiration in nature and in the beauty that landscapes have to offer.
People can come to the Gallery at the Library to see Iliescu’s work this month. The Gallery is open to the public during regular library hours, Monday through Thursday from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. and Friday and Saturday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
