ART and MUSIC IN THE LIBRARY


Out of the Box! Art Show
September through October 2017

 

Each week during 2017, on Tuesdays from 1 to 4 PM, a group of local artists meet at the South Jefferson Public Library in Summit Point, WV, for ongoing Open Studio sessions.  Adult artists may bring whatever projects they are working on, continue their artistic practice and projects, while providing camaraderie, constructive feedback, and artistic support to one another in the pleasant and conductive environment of the library's Meeting Room.  The group is open, so attendance varies from week to week, but it serves as encouragement for the larger community's continued artistic endeavors.

Each year, there is an art show scheduled so that the group may share their accomplishments with the public, marking their ongoing growth as artists.  This year the show is entitled"Out of the Box".  It will take place at the South Jefferson Library from September 5th through October 31st in the Meeting Room; there will be a public reception for the show on Saturday, September 16th, from 2:30 to 4:30, also in the Meeting Room, where some of the artists will be in attendance.  Please join us for this event!

Some of the participating artists are:  Julie Anthony, Maryellen York, Janice Schaeffer, Jeanne Morton, and Sara Guttierez.  The group facilitator/artist contact is Jean Kellogg, who may be reached at wjkellogg@zoho.com .

 

The Library is pleased to provide opportunities for local artists to exhibit their work in our meeting room for up to two months at a time.
