  1. Exhibit: Mixed-Media Painting by Rachel Tirosh

    Rachel Tirosh is exhibiting her abstract, mixed-media paintings. Her background is in electrical engineering and she finds that her art fills her desire for a balance of free expression and fun. She uses a layering technique for both texture and color, giving them three-dimensional quality. She also uses water with glue and pure pigments to give her work spontaneity. Please join Rachel Tirosh for a reception on Sunday, November 15 from 1:30-3:30pm in the Main Library's Laurel Room.

  2. Exhibit: Pottery by Lauren Liu

    November 12 - December 21 @ Display Case, 2nd Floor

    Lauren Liu, a local resident, lived in the Tokyo area of Japan from 2011-2014. During her stay, she studied and practiced pottery at a local pottery studio. She also traveled to southern Japan and discovered how the masters made pottery. Using this knowledge, Lauren’s pottery incorporates various styles of glazing and texture.
