Community Art

"Art enables us to find ourselves and lose ourselves at the same time."
- Thomas Merton

Do you paint, take photos, make textile arts, sketch, or create in other ways? Have you always wanted to exhibit your art in a public space where people can enjoy it? Now you can, at your library! SPL is looking for artists to share their work at the library - you do not have to be a professional artist to participate. All creativity is welcome! Apply now for exhibition dates in 2019 (application form and details below).
