“We really are just working full speed ahead to raise as much money for the library as possible. This is such a great way to support not only the library but also the local art community,” said Sullivan.

The selection includes paintings, works on paper, photographs, mixed-media, and sculpture, representing a variety of styles and approaches from figurative and narrative to realism and abstraction, and offering an array of subject matter, including landscapes, still life, portraits, and scenes of daily life. Artwork by recognized artists and established professionals is shown alongside those of emerging talents and amateurs.
