Kelynn Alder instantly felt at home on the famous Brooklyn Coney Island boardwalks, which reminded her of the Latin American countries where she grew up. Her paintings convey a global fascination, a tribute to the everyday people and their lives of joy and work. Whether her subjects are people from the festivals of the Mayan villages of Chiapas or the people at the Coney Island amusement park, Alder paints these scenes with vibrant colors and further unifies them with sensibility and energy. Alder, featured in Cynthia Maris Dantzic's book 100 New York Painters, is of Mexican-American heritage and grew up in several countries. From her early childhood, peoples' diverse backgrounds and the wide range of living cultures fascinated her, but Mexico remains her favorite subject matter. The exhibit may be viewed during regular library hours.
