Art in February

Posted by: CherylB | Posted on: Feb 06 2017

Enjoy artist VersAnnette Blackman-Bosia's expressive painting exhibit, In Praise of Spartan Women, brightening up the art walls this month. 

Don't miss seeing the items in the display cases near the top of the stairs:  All these pieces were created in our adult/teen craft, and art classes, here at the Library!

Come to the second floor to enjoy all these creations.

Art Gallery Walls


VersAnnette Blackman-Bosia's paintings on canvas are a collection of figurative abstracts she painted intuitively for over a year. Her exhibit In Praise of Spartan Women shares the message that women are warriors, facing daily battles, and need to be seen and heard—equally valued. Blackman-Bosia is also a published poet, facilitator and speaker for art and poetry workshops in domestic violence shelters and schools. She is also the founder of the nonprofit group, HEM (Heal, Empower, Motivate) whose mission is to help domestic violence survivors find healing through arts. Come experience her captivating works.

Adult/Teen Display Cases


Crafts and artwork galore in the adult/teen display cases—all created in our craft programs. From welcome signs and string art to greeting cards and clothespin wreaths, there is a wide variety of projects to see!

School Display Case


Students from Immanuel Lutheran School have filled the first floor school case with their colorful artwork: animals, holiday scenes, snowflakes, rainbows, and so much more! These delightful works were made with various media, including tempera paint, markers, crayons, paper, and mixed-media.

Children's Collection Case


David K., a seven-year-old, displays his Minecraft creations made out of Perler beads: creepers, sheep, spider, and more.

Luke exhibits his extensive collection of Batman figures in action!

Thank you to these artists and collectors for exhibiting your work and collections with us!
