Exhibition - Art and Text

Thursday, Nov 21, 2019 at 9:00am

Plumb Memorial Library
65 Wooster Street
Shelton, CT 06484

Art Spaces in Fairfield County Libraries, a consortium of 13 libraries that offer curated visual art exhibitions, is pleased to present "Art & Text," a united exhibition featuring the work of local and regional artists. Each library within the consortium will highlight one or more artists, whose work reflects their unique perspectives on the exhibition’s theme.

Through mixed media ranging from sculpture and painting to graphics, each library’s exhibition aims to promote awareness of visual arts in the libraries of Fairfield County, as well as foster a connection between the community it serves and the arts. The consortium’s initiative dates back to 2015, when a meeting between Cynthia Whalen from the Flinn Gallery in Greenwich, Mary Moross from New Canaan Library and Christine Timmons from The Westport Library sparked the idea of establishing a way for those who organize visual art exhibitions in their libraries to share experiences and find a way to promote the exhibitions. The group grew, branched out, and now proudly presents its first united exhibition, "Art & Text."

Libraries participating in the 2019 Art & Text show are: Bethel Library, Cyrenius H. Booth Library, Fairfield Public Library, Ferguson Library, New Canaan Library, Norwalk Public Library, Pequot Library, Plumb Memorial Library, Ridgefield Library, Stratford Library, The Westport Library, Weston Public Library, and Wilton Library.

Plumb Memorial Library Dates: September 1, 2019 - December 31, 2019
