The Hunt Library Artwall features up to nine exhibits annually including solo and group shows. It exists to showcase local professional and emerging artists living in the Northwest Connecticut community and further afield. A portion of all art sales benefit the library. For information, please inquire with the library staff.
Beginning Friday, March 23, The David M. Hunt Library in Falls Village will present BOOK ART, an exhibit by Lee H. Kellogg School students. The 7th and 8th Grade students of Kellogg arts educator Chris Hanley created sculptures out of books donated to them by the Hunt Library. Each artwork was created with varying fold patterns of the books’ pages, revealing abstract and figurative shapes while recycling old books into new works of art. In some cases, paint, ribbon, and other ornamentations were added. The results are as unique as the artists themselves! The exhibit will be open during library operating hours through Saturday, April 14, 2018.
This Spring, David M. Hunt Library in Falls Village, CT will host the group art exhibit KITES! Flights of Fancy starting with a reception with sips and nibbles on Saturday, April 21, 4-6PM.
The exhibit features over 40 artists from near and far with interpretations on the desire to fly in sculpture, painting, drawing, photography, and video. KITES! will remain on display through Saturday, May 19, 2018. This event is free and open to the public. For more information contact the library at 860-824-7424 or visit www.huntlibrary.org.
