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.


July 2014:

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.

Artist: Anita Dallar

Anita Dallar is a visual artist, poet and art educator. Anita’s artwork combines printmaking (intaglio & serigraphy) with collage and mixed media.

Anita studied art as a child and received an AA in Art History and then a scholarship in intaglio printmaking from San Jose State University in California where she completed her BA in Studio Art. She also has Florida teaching certificates in Visual Art and ESE, and currently teaches printmaking in her art studio while working on her Master’s Degree in Education.

“While I gravitate towards innovative approaches, I do not completely depart from tradition; combining the traditional with the unusual is a fascinating challenge”.

Cathy is a self-taught artist. When in grade-school, she received a scholarship from the Cook County School District, to attend the Art Institute of Chicago. As an accomplished author, and artist, her work has received many honors, awards and invitational showings.
