“The Ark,” is a collection of artist Garrett Chingery’s new acrylic paintings featuring wild and domestic animals from around the world. From November 20 to January 4, Chingery’s paintings will be on view in an exhibition at Quogue Library. The works, on 11-inch-by-14-inch canvas panels, will also be available for purchase. An artist’s reception will be held Saturday, November 27, from 4 to 5:30 p.m..

The paintings from “The Ark” series are all framed and priced at $350 each.

“The endless variety of size, shape, color and pattern found in the animal kingdom never ceases to amaze me,” Chingery said in a statement. “Plus, the abundance of creatures that inhabit this Earth provides a wonderful opportunity to explore in depth my fascination with portraiture, which is not only a quest to achieve a physical likeness, but also a challenge to endow the subject with an emotional intelligence and a life of its own.”

Quogue Library is at 90 Quogue Street, Quogue. For details visit
