Smith Rock at Dawn by Randall Tillery

Sisters Library Annual Art Exhibit

The Sisters Library Annual Art Exhibit through Thursday, February  25 with opening reception, with a silent auction, hors d’oeuvres, beverages, and the announcement of the ever-popular People’s Choice Awards Friday, January 22 from 6 to 7:30pm at the Sisters Library.
Again this year, three People’s Choice Awards will be presented at the reception. Any visitor to the library may cast a vote. Voting runs from the exhibit opening on January 13 through January 22 at the reception. One ballot per person, please. Last year’s People’s Choice winners were Dennis Schmidling for his photograph “Smith Rock at Dawn,” Randall Tillery for his oil painting Morning Light and Fred Kimmell for his wooden Rocking Harley Davidson. All three artists are from Sisters.
The exhibit is extremely popular among local artists. Because of limited space, artists may submit two pieces of wall-hung art. Five pieces of jewelry, ceramics, sculpture, etc. may be submitted. Work must not have been shown in the Annual Art Exhibit in the past three years. Drop-off of artwork and items for the silent auction will be Monday, January 11 from 10am to 5:30pm in the Library Community Room. Artwork must be left for the entire length of the show.
The exhibit and silent auction is a project of the Friends of Sisters Library (FOSL) Art Committee, and 10 percent of sales of artwork go to FOSL.
The silent auction – which debuted last year – proved to be popular. Artists, most of whose work is part of the Annual Exhibit, donate silent auction items. Proceeds go to FOSL to support library programs.
Artist invitations and registration forms are available at the Sisters Library, 110 N. Cedar St., Sisters. Library hours are Tuesday-Friday, 10am to 6pm and Saturday, 10am to 5pm. Please contact Zeta Seiple, 541-549-6157 or Paul Bennett, 541-588-0156, if you have questions about this exhibit.
