In keeping with the Summer Reading theme of " Oceans of Possibilities", we have a display of beautiful watercolors of some of the many moods of the shore. Diane Orzel is an accomplished watercolor artist and teaches classes at Creative Ventures in Milford. https://www.creativeventuresfineart.com/ There is a price list at the circulation desk for anyone interested in purchasing one of her pieces. The display will be up through the summer so be sure to get in to take a look.
High school art students at WLC have been working in collaboration with the town of Wilton and the Wilton Community Center on an exciting community art plan! This project has included a guest visit from the local stormwater management department and a walk downtown to learn how stormwater runoff affects the surrounding river ecosystems. Students were able to investigate how to bring awareness to storm drain pollution through mural art designed with images of regional wildlife— and catchy slogans— to get people to stop and think about stormwater protection. The students applied this research to create storm drain mural sketches that will be exhibited in the Wilton town library throughout April before the final selections are painted downtown on Earth Day.
If you are a local artist interested in displaying some of your work, please contact the library at (603) 654-2581.
