Art Centennial Celebration

This year marks the 100th anniversary of the Thomas Memorial Library!

To celebrate, we are planning a community art show during the month of November. Anyone of any age can participate!

We have space for 200 small works of art in our gallery space. If you would like to participate, just register with us and we will give you an 8×8 wood panel for you to use to create your artwork inspired by this question:

What does the library mean to you?


Here are the guidelines:

1. Library users of any age may participate (children, too!) No experience necessary!

2. All work for the art show must be created (or mounted) on the 8×8 wood panels provided by the library. (Use the flat side of the panel for your artwork; the “box” side is the back and is designed for hanging.) One completed panel per person can be submitted to the show. (We have a few extras in case you mess up!)

3. Feel free to use any medium you like. Many forms of media can be applied directly to the wood panel including paint, colored pencil, paint markers, etc. You may also create work on paper or another medium and mount it on the panel, as long as it does not exceed the 8×8 dimensions of the surface.

4. Photos of all the work included in the exhibit will appear in a full-color booklet that will be produced at the end of the show. Each contributor to the exhibit will receive a free copy.

Please stop by the library to register and pick up your art panel.
