Our February art exhibit is showcasing paintings by library staff member David Powell on the library’s art wall in the main-floor Miron Fireside Room. Dave is the driving force behind the library’s beautiful flower gardens, and he has transferred that artistic eye to painting oil and acrylic landscapes. Although he doesn’t consider himself an artist in a traditional sense, these works are evidence of how art is an outlet to express a connection with nature.
Please join us on Thursday, February 27, at 6:00pm in the Fireside Room to meet with Dave and share how he is developing his talent.
