April-May Art @ your library®

The April-May 2021 Art @ your library® honors Earth Day and National Recycling Month by showcasing local artists who create unique pieces using found, repurposed, and reused materials. The featured artists for this exhibit are:

Dan Aldeman: Aldeman uses copper, stone, and other natural materials he finds along streams and rivers in his sculptures. You will find his copper art pieces suspended in the rotunda.
Mary Lutes: Lutes is an abstract and mixed media artist. She uses a variety of unexpected upcycled materials in her artwork including napkins, flowers, and makeup.
Arsh Pal: Pal is an 11-year-old artist who loves to paint. Many of his works are done on upcycled canvas or wood and use found objects like seashells and flowers. Pal sells his art to raise money for the St. Jude Children’s Hospital.
Katie Schutte: Schutte’s artwork is the result of combining crochet with various jewelry, painting, and sculpture techniques. Her “Stain” series is created by spraying paint through antique and vintage doilies.

This exhibit is on display in the second floor historic area during regular library hours through May 25. Pieces are available for sale, please ask a staff member for assistance. Proceeds from sales directly benefit the artists, with a small portion going toward the continuation of the Art @ your library® program.
