Tiny Art Show Exhibit Gets “Carried Away”!

After putting out a Call for Artists at the beginning of the month, we received a tremendous response of 96 miniature masterpieces for our first Tiny Art Show!

Community members have been thoroughly enjoying the display this week, many complimenting the talent and creativity showcased through each person’s art. “It is wonderful to see how differently each person has interpreted the prompt,” one patron remarked. The theme for this art show was “Get Carried Away,” coinciding with the annual Ravenna Balloon A-Fair. We would like to give a huge thank you to everyone who shared their art with us.

If you haven’t been able to make it into the library this week, fear not: we took pictures!

Artists who submitted art can pick up their canvases any time this week, so if you want to see exhibit, make sure to stop in soon.
