Art on the Avenue: Celebration of the Arts

The library is hosting an Art on the Avenue: Celebration of the Arts event on Friday, July 28, from 6 to 9 p.m.

This is the library’s second annual Celebration of the Arts; last year, they hosted a wonderful author fair with 250 people in attendance.

This year’s event will be very similar in nature; 28 local artists will be participating and will be placed around the library in an easy-for-folks-to-browse style. Featured will also be food, drink and beverages, including wine, in the program room which will be decorated in a gallery style featuring one piece of art work each from the participating artists.

“The art work will be quite varied, we will have everything from paintings and drawings to wood art, fiber art, metal art, stained glass, photography and more,” Veronica Pacella, a worker at the library stated.

Tickets, which are available at the library or from Anniversary Committee members, cost $10 each and can also be purchased at the door the evening of the event.
