Voting begins for art show people's choice
By Sue StaffordVoting begins Wednesday for the People's Choice Awards in the Friends of the Sisters Library (FOSL) Ninth Annual Art Exhibit at the library.
Ballots are available in the library's community room and votes may be cast for up to three works of art. The art is on display throughout the library, so be sure to browse all the rooms.
Final opportunity for voting and announcement of the three winners will take place at the artists' reception on Friday, January 17, from 5:30 to 7 p.m. Beverages and hors d'oeurves will be served as the public meet the artists and view their work. The exhibit will be on display until February 26.
The 40 to 50 artists are exhibiting artwork in many different mediums, including sculpture, fiber art, all types of painting, jewelry, collage and photography.
Last year's opening reception was very well attended, with many votes cast for the eventual three People's Choice winners: Jennifer Hartwig, scratchboard; Rick Judy, photography; and Bonnie Kimmel, pastel.
The annual FOSL art exhibit began in 2006 when the current library building opened and the art committee was formed. The art show affords the community the opportunity to view and support a large number of Sisters Country artists all at one time, in one location. In addition, artists donate 10% of any sales to FOSL to help promote the programs at the library.
