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.

November 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.

Central Ridge Branch


Display: Digital Art

Cathy Fontechia


At first glance these beautiful works of art appear to be hand painted; but it takes a very discerning eye to tell that they were created in a digital art program! Don’t mistake using a digital art program as less difficult than traditional painting, if anything it can often be more difficult. Our guest artist this month has expertly utilized the computer program to create these spectacular works of art. If you are interested in seeing how technology can be used to create stunning works of art, you really must stop down and catch a glimpse of these images.

This month's artwork on display is by Jane E. Kegan. Kegan grew up in Anne Arundel County in Maryland and took her first art classes in public schools there. She went on to Towson State University to become and elementary teacher but also took a minor in art. She enjoyed sharing her artistic skills with her students in a career as an elementary teacher for 20 years and a middle school science teacher for 12 years.

Kegan retired to Citrus County and has found time to pursue her artistic endeavors. She is a memer of the Citrus Water Color Club. 

Kegan enjoys traveling with her husband and taking photographs of places she visits. 



Display: Cryptic Culture Jewelry

Stop by the Coastal Region Library this month to see some wonderful handmade jewelry. 

From the Designer:

"I originally started creating handmade jewelry as gifts due to lack of money, but I morphed into selling my creations in 2006.

Originally from Boston I am now located in Inverness. 

I love making stuff and to have an outlet to sell my crafts is wonderful. One of a kind jewelry pieces (Earrings, Bracelets, Necklaces, Rings). I utilize seaglass, beads, wood, ceramic, murano glass, semi-precious stones, sterling silver, 14K Gold, etc. I also create one of a kind Earring Holders out of recycled or reclaimed items."
