Robert Ernst Marx may live in western NY but his work reaches far beyond Rochester. His etchings, paintings, and sculptures have been exhibited in museums, galleries, and rare book rooms both here in the United States and in other countries. Marx has a BFA in painting and an MFA in printmaking. He has taught at many institutions including SUNY Brockport before he retired in 1990.
The Central Library subscribes to hundreds of magazines and journals. Current issues are shelved in the subject departments; older issues (some going back to the nineteenth century) are kept in storage, where they are easily retrieved when requested. Most of our magazines don’t leave the building, so the issue you need should always be here.

Popular titles such as Sports Illustrated, Rolling Stone, Better Homes and Gardens, and Bride’s are here, but we also have some titles that might be a surprise.
Here are some glimpses of recent issues, plus a gem from the vaults.

Patrons can view this display in the Arts Division for the rest of March. Books on watercolor painting as well as framed watercolor prints by master artists are available for check out.
