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.

December 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: Gaming Miniatures

Crowmancer Gaming

 If you enjoy reading science fiction and fantasy this display will fill your imagination with mechs and monsters. These miniatures are used for all sorts of different games. Giant robotic mechs fight in futuristic cityscapes among tiny infantry and armor units while futuristic soldiers battle aliens. Fantasy football takes on a new meaning with Blood Bowl, a violent football-like sport featuring fantasy races such as orcs and vampires. Some creatures are hand painted, others are kit-bashed from other models, but all are ready for war!

Coastal Region Branch

Artist: Frank Sunshadow Curtis





This month's artwork on display is by Frank Sunshadow Curtis. Frank is a descendant of the Penobscot & Chippewa Tribes in the Northeastern United States. He and his wife Ellen live in Citrus Springs Florida.

Frank is an acomplished professional photographer, artist, and musician. Many of his stories are of Native American Children learning the lessons of the earth. 

Frank's photography started in the US Coast Guard on an Around the World Cruise in the 1960's. He used his photography skills during his career as a Police Officer and Detective.

Frank now focuses on more scenic photography and his award winning photo, "Dragonfly & Lillypad" can be seen on National Geographic's website "Best Photo of the Day for January, 2010."


Display: Needlepoint 

Stop by the Coastal Region Library this month to see some wonderful Needlepoint. All Needlepoint has been provided by Dorothy Arnold. 

Dot has been working with Needlepoint for over 20 years, both designing and collecting. She finds the craft both fun and relaxing. She has found Needlepoint projects for every occasion and for everyone. 

Be sure to stop by and see some amazing Needlepoint and check out one of our many Needlepoint books now on display at the Coastal Region Library. 

Floral City Branch

Cracker House, Waller Road

Artist: Ann Covington

Pencil and Watercolor


Ann Covington works in many mediums, including oils, watercolor, acrylic, pencil, and pen and ink. Her work has sold locally and internationally, and she has published a book, “Sketches of Historic Floral City.”  “Even though I have spent many years sailing around the world, homespun familiarity and comfortable realities are the hallmark of my work,” said Covington in her artist’s statement. “I like to draw on site (plein air) with charcoal or graphite. My black and white sketches peacefully ease one into a sense of reverence for the prideful but forgotten homestead and the pure thought and gesture of the moment.”


For more information about Ann and her work visit: Florida Artists Gallery

Stop by the Floral City Library on Tuesday, September 16th from 10:30 AM to 12 NOON to meet Chris Randle, see her creative process in action and try your hand at paper folding.
