Delano Library seeks artists for art show

The Delano Friends of the Library are seeking artists to exhibit at the 27th annual Delano Public Library Art Show. Deadline to submit work is Friday, Sept. 28.

The Friends will host an open house for the art show from 6 to 8 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 2, at the library, located at 160 Railroad Ave. E. Artists from the Delano Art Guild will demonstrate their styles and techniques from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. Jill Woodward will paint and assemble Native American style teepees and will assist community members who would like to participate. An art book will be given away in a drawing for all those present at the open house. Refreshments will be served.

The art show will be displayed from Oct. 2 through Saturday, Oct. 27, throughout the library. The Delano Library is accepting art and fine craftwork for the show. All artists in the community — young and old, professional and amateur — are urged to bring in two of their finest works to display during the show. This exhibit does not include photos, quilts, or any fiber arts since the library has other exhibits planned for those types of art.

Bring artwork to the library no later than Sept. 28, during open hours and fill out a display form. Artwork must be ready to hang, or to be placed in small low bookstands. Otherwise, it will not be displayed. If a piece is very fragile, please notify the library staff when it is dropped off. All artwork should be picked up no later than Monday, Nov. 5.

Event sponsors are the Delano Public Library, Delano Friends of the Library and Delano Art Guild. For information about the exhibit or open house, contact Mary Ann Bernat at 763-972-6274, or the Delano Public Library at 763-972-3467.
