Art in December

Posted by: CherylB | Posted on: Dec 11 2016

Enjoy the impressive second floor artwork this month! Helene Freiler features her rich oil, and watercolor paintings on the west wall, and artist/staff member Erin Nessler exhibits her creative acrylic paintings on the South wall.


West Gallery Wall


Helene Freiler displays her impressionistic paintings featuring a rich variety subject matter: architecture and landscapes, flowers and nature, and even a ballerina. Helene, an Art Guild member, says she has always been interested in art and exhibits her work in many local venues.

South Gallery Wall


Look closely at Erin Nessler’s creative acrylic paintings: each one evokes a contradiction of subject matter and surroundings, adding a bit a humor to her work. Erin is not only an artist, but a staff member here at the Library, who enjoys using her artist talents to teach art and craft programs.

Adult Collection Case

The collection case, near the top of the stairs displays a WWII soldier’s lost prayer book, and Honor Flight memorabilia, exhibited by Marg Duer, and Ken Asmann, both Palatine Sister City (Fontenay-le-Comte, France) members.

First Floor School Student Art Display

Talented Quest Academy students of all grade-levels fill the first floor case with an amazing display of colorful artwork. Subject matter includes: nature, portraits, and more—all created with a variety of media.    

First Floor Children’s Collection Cases


Annie displays her sea shell collection—just in time, to help us forget this wintery weather!

Marianne shows us her Littlest Pet Shop animals having fun:  a monkey, dogs, cats, and more.
