Why Art? A Special Group Show Featuring Santa Cruz County Library Staff & Volunteers
October 12 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm
The Friends of the Scotts Valley Library are hosting an exhibition and gala reception to showcase the talents of several artists who work or volunteer at our local libraries.
Why Create Art?
Modern libraries are about much more than books and today’s library staff and volunteers comprise a highly creative group. The Friends of the Scotts Valley Library (FSVPL) have long supported art in the library. Roxanne Dwyer, the Friend’s art show curator, thought it would be fun to feature the artistic work of some of the people who work at and support the library.
FSVPL is hosting a reception and gala for the artists on October 12, from 5 to 7pm. The public is invited to attend and meet the artists. The event is free (donations appreciated). Light refreshments will be served.
Fourteen artists are featured in the show. Their work includes photography, painting, woodcuts, glass, collage, and fabric art. Each artist has been asked to briefly describe why they create art.
