New Give/Take Exhibit Explores Human Emotion

On exhibit: October 5 – November 8. Library Hours

What happens when 11 women artists get together to nourish each other? Give/Take happens, and a traveling art exhibit is born!

Each artist explores how we need, receive, and provide nourishment on many levels, including physical, mental, and spiritual. The artists believe that their concept is relevant today, especially in light of what they feel are the “overwhelming amount of choices and information available.”
They note that how people choose to nourish themselves as well as others can have far-reaching impacts. The exhibit, which contains a variety of paintings, original prints, sculpture, ceramics, and assemblage pieces, shows the different interpretations for the concept of nourishment.

Take a look in the glass display cases and you’ll see mixed media pieces, paintings, linoleum-cut prints and an experiment in Wyoming clay. Be sure to look up when you’re in the entrance gallery – there are a couple of surprises!

On the display wall by the Library’s Book Sale Room are the large and textural landscape paintings, a triptych that glows in the light of the window, and some paintings that will stir your heart.
