The Stairwell Gallery at Gunn Memorial Library in Washington will open "Wunderkammer," an exhibit of art by Scott Bricher of South Kent, Sept. 8 with a reception from noon to 2 p.m.

The show will run through Nov. 11.

Among his talents, Mr. Bricher is a portraitist, illustrator, animator and instructor.

He studied at Parson School of Design from 1980-84 and then at the Art Students League of New York from 1987-89 with the world renowned portrait painter Nelson Shanks.

Mr. Bricher's clients include PBS, Mad Magazine, Frito-Lay, Pepsi, Hasbro, Diageo and Pitney Bowes, Taunton Press and Crew Design, Inc.

He has won many awards for his interactive media, online advertising and websites and won the gold PROMAX/Broadcast Design Awards for 2008.

As a traditional painter he has achieved success but now he has transitioned into a new technique: traditional oil painting with experiments using encaustic wax and paper lithograph on wood.

The Wykeham Road library is open Mondays and Fridays from 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m., Tuesdays and Thursdays from 9:30 a.m. to 8 p.m. and Saturdays from 9:30 a.m. to 3 p.m.
