Lopez Island, WA 98261
Art In the Library - Artist of the Month
Lopez Library is a public library created by the people of Lopez to provide resources and services for the enrichment of their cultural and recreational lives, and to provide information needed for daily living and decision-making. The library strives to promote the love of reading and of lifelong learning.
The library provides a premier place for artists to show their work. A volunteer Art Coordinator's primary role is seeking and selecting artists for each show. Artists wishing to display at the library can contact our current art coordinator, Malia Sanford at 468-2265.
Ruth Van Doren's oil paintings will adorn the library walls. This group of oils was created over a fifty-year period. They depict the places she has loved, lived and painted. Since moving to Lopez, her affection for the island has motivated her to benefit community nonprofit organizations from the sale of her work through the Art with Project. Look for the 1946 green GMC pickup at future fundraisers!
Jaina + Yoram's "Chicken and Egg" artful collection of knick knacks and local eggshells will be featured in the cabinets.
The artwork will be at the library from January 25th to February 28th, and can be seen whenever the library is open.
