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 2016:

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: Rebecca Pujals Jones

Rebecca is showing her works Bodies of Water. This ongoing fine art documentary and traveling exhibition is sponsored by grants from the Puffin Foundation Ltd. and the Citrus County Historical Society, Inc. 

It displays different bodies of water here in Citrus County through an art form known as wet-plate collodion process. 

Since 1997, Rebecca has been a fine art photographer based in Hernando, Florida. Now, she specializes in one of the earliest photographic methods, the historic wet-plate collodion process. This process is known for its hand-worked qualities, giving the artist a unique ability to improvise and explore forms, moods, light, and shadow. 

 

 

 

Display: Brenda Spilios

The display in October is Hot Bots by Brenda Spilios. She has made thrown out objects into beautiful pieces of art. Anything from turtles to horses can be found made from everyday objects others have thrown out.
