Library Art Show
In the wake of the success of this past summer’s Stony Creek Library Art Show, the library is hosting an off-season edition of the event.
The library is now inviting artists to submit their fine art or originally designed craft work for their upcoming Winter Art Show.
The show's opening reception will be held from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 21, and area residents are urged to reserve the date. “This show is a great opportunity to see what local artists are creating, sip a little wine, and eat a little food,” library Director Lisa Bartow said.
Those attending are welcome to bring hors d'oeuvres if they so wish, she said.
Stony Creek and area artists are invited to submit one piece of work. Due to limited space, the selection of artwork will be on a first-come basis. The deadline to submit work is Jan. 15.
This show is open to area artists and crafters age 16 and up. All artists interested in displaying their work should stop by the library to pick up an entry form.
Youth drawing classes
Also occurring this season at the library are basic drawing classes for children led by Patrice Jarvis-Weber from 4 p.m. to 5 p.m. every Thursday for four weeks beginning Jan. 10. The sessions are for ages 6 and up. Classes are free. The class size is limited, so those interested are urged to register as soon as possible by calling 696-5911 or stopping in at the library.
