January 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.

It is a never failing spring in the desert.” On this remarkable evening you can support the library system and display your fervent belief in access to quality education for all, which strengthens our community.

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

Homosassa Branch
