Artists & Displays

Monthly Artists & Displays

Stop by the libraries every month to see changing displays featuring beautiful works of art and interesting collections, artifacts, or memorabilia--all contributed by the creative, talented people that live right alongside you in your community.


August 2015:

Do you have an interesting collection to share?

We're always looking for community members who wish to share their talents at the library each month. 

Displays provide exposure to the work of artisans and artists, or provide information on subjects of general interest to the public. The display cases are secured. For more information call your local branch or contact us.

Central Ridge Branch

Display: Video Game Characters


 

Heroes, villains, and monsters of all sorts are currently on display at the Central Ridge Library. Some of you may remember these Characters from 90’s video game fame. A truly exciting collection that will bring back memories of your first Zergling Rush, the time you gibbed that noob, or how you forgot to restock phoenix down before that boss fight. If none of that made sense to you its ok, you can still come down and take a look at early videogame history!

Flannelboard: “Five Hungry Ants”
Five hungry ants, marching in a line,
Came upon a picnicwhere they could dine.
They marched into the salad,they marched into the cake,
They marched into the pepper….uh oh, that was a mistake!
AHHHH-CHOOO!

Display: Metal Bots

The Metal Bots display is provided by Brenda Spilios. 

From the artist:  "In the summer of 2013, I viewed a special exhibit at the Appleton Museum of Art in Ocala called "Art of the Robot."  I became smitten with the robot-inspired sculptures made from vintage objects and metal scraps on display.  I thought to myself, "I can do this!"

I came home and set about creating my own sculptures, calling them whimbots (whimsical robots.) I started browsing antique shops, charity stores and the family garage for interesting metal pieces.  I love using pieces that are tarnished, rusted, and battered because I find them charming.

I became adept at using a drill press and a hack saw in order to assemble my creations.  I do no welding or soldering.  Each work of art comes together like a complex puzzle; I use nuts and bolts and screws and my imagination.  I have fun making them and my hope is that they are fun to look at.

I retired from teaching five years ago after 34 years in the profession. I have lived with my family in Inverness since 1986."
