Artist: Kristen R. Bilotti 

Visit Coastal Region Library this month and see some beautiful artwork. Artist Kristen Bilotti is displaying a selection of her work.

"I believe creating art is a cathartic experience which allows a person to explore and express their emotions. The beauty of art is that each individual finds their own interpretation. Regardless of ability, engaging in any of the create arts brings one a uniquely indescribable feeling of self-fulfilment."  

  

Display: Native American

Artist: Liz Meeks

This month's art display is courtesy of Liz Meeks. In her own words: "My paintings reflect feelings, energy and enthusiasm for objects, scenes or people that inspire me to preserve a special moment I've experienced. SCUBA diving trips, for example, have provided wonderful inspirations for paintings of coral reefs and the sea life that exists around these areas. I consider my work an integration of Impressionism, American Abstraction, and Expressionism styles.

Creating a palette of colors and shapes that will appeal to the viewer is a process of creative transformation. I particularly like to use texture and mixed media to add excitement and interest. Portraying the beauty I see and recreating that feeling on canvas for others to enjoy is my objective. I hope you enjoy my paintings."

Display: Daughters of the American Revolution

 

Constitution Week is the commemoration of America's most important document. It is celebrated annually during the week of September 17-23.The United States Constitution stands as a testament to the tenacity of Americans throughout history to maintain their liberties, freedoms and inalienable rights.

This celebration of the Constitution was started by the Daughters of the American Revolution. In 1955, DAR petitioned Congress to set aside September 17-23 annually to be dedicated for the observance of Constitution Week. The resolution was later adopted by the U.S. Congress and signed into public law on August 2, 1956, by President Dwight D. Eisenhower.

The DAR has also erected a structure that is built in tribute to the Constitution of the United States. DAR Constitution Hall, which is a performing arts center, opened in 1929.
