Spring! Group Show Featuring 15 Local Artists

Sunday, April 21 — 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Our library’s Art & Exhibitions Committee called for artist submissions, providing the single thematic prompt: “Spring!” And we cannot wait for you to see the amazing and vibrantly colorful pieces we received from a variety of local artists working in unique mediums and styles. This special group show will be on display from April 15 - May 25, but mark your calendars for Sunday, April 21, when we’ll host a special reception celebrating all of the artists’ works on display.

The Art and Exhibitions Committee’s mission is to promote and foster an appreciation of two and three-dimensional art for library patrons, through exhibits, lectures, and an expanded collection of art books.
