March Art Exhibits 

Andrew Linderman is a studio potter and former high school chemistry teacher exhibiting his pottery in the Glass Case Gallery. Of his work, he says, “My forms are loosely inspired by the natural world. Just like oak trees are distinguished from any other species in the forest, each tree is also unique unto itself. I find beauty in the diversity that handcrafted works bring into our assembly-line culture." Linderman's art can be viewed at any time during regular library hours. 

Richard Moninski is exhibiting his paintings in the Community Room Gallery. Moninski is strongly influenced by history, nature and numerous decorative arts traditions. His paintings and drawings have been exhibited nationally. This exhibit is available for viewing during regular library hours, and when the Community Room is not already in use. Please ask for the key to the room at the circulation desk.
