ART EXHIBIT DATESThe Friends of the Bend Library Art Committee is very pleased to announce a great turnout of art for the "Earth, Water, Sky" exhibit. We had 54 entries by 34 artists representing almost every type of art and interpretation of the theme, either all three in one image or one or two expressed. Abstract to realism, shell collection story to mirrors, photography, painting, collage were submitted. The art is displayed all around the walls of the second floor and in the computer rooms until April 29, 2013. The art is for sale unless indicated by an NFS (not for sale) through artist contact information provided on the printed wall I.D. tags.
The next exhibit will be "Anticipation" which will hang from May 1 to August 5, 2013. Entries may be submitted in person on April 30, Tuesday, 3-6pm in the Hutchinson Room on the second floor of the library. Paintings, collages, photographs, drawings: any medium that can hang on a wall must be 16"x 20" or larger outside dimensions of frame or stretched canvas with a wire for hanging on the library's hanging system. NO SAWTOOTH hangers.
