Inspired by nature’s beauty from the shores of Accabonac Harbor to the canyons of the West, artist Pamela Topham creates tapestries of landscapes, which she will show this month at the John Jermain Memorial Library in Sag Harbor.

“I have lived most of my life in an uncommonly beautiful place of wetlands, farmland, endless sea and sky,” the artist, who lives on the East End, said in a statement. “I also travel to find other places of similar and contrasting aesthetic inspiration, in the tradition of Thomas Moran. My landscapes reflect my longtime devotion to preserving and interpreting these visual impressions.”

This show marks the first time Ms. Topham is showing her tapestries from the Southwest on the East End. She will also show tapestries from her Sagaponack, Accabonac and Hudson River series.

An opening reception for the show, which runs May 1 through June 6, will be at the library on Saturday, May 3 from 3 to 5 p.m. For more information, call the library at 725-0049.
