Each year over 200 original art paintings and drawings are displayed, including oil paintings, drawings, watercolors and acrylic paintings.

Most of this artwork is for sale at reasonable prices. This is a fine opportunity to see quality local art and to buy original art to decorate your home, office or camp.

A public reception for the artists will be held in the Library meeting room, Sunday, Oct. 20, from 2 - 4 p.m. It will feature Kaycee Keller, this year's Miss Evangeline.
