Posted 13 Jan 2018: Library Monthly Art Exhibitions a Hit
Library patrons love the monthly art exhibitions at VGPL. When a month goes by without an exhibit, patrons frequently ask, "Where’s our art?" A wide variety of mediums and themes have generated thoughtful discussion and reflection. Artists have also held receptions providing opportunities for friends and family to celebrate each show and new acquaintances a chance to meet the artist. The exhibitions have ranged from 10-18 pieces and been framed in a variety of sizes with 16x20 being the most common. Local artists are invited to apply for an opportunity to display their art at the library. Contact Vickie Willis at [ ] with questions or to receive an application and guidelines.
