Free show at Crafton library to feature local artists' works

Wednesday, Oct. 2, 2013, 9:00 p.m.
 

The Crafton Public Library will hold an exhibition of local artists Sunday that will be open to the public for free.

The show developed from word of mouth, organizer Tracey Vogel said.

“It's honestly just been me meeting people and talking to so many people and saying, ‘Do you paint?' and they say, ‘Yes,'” Vogel said. “Then someone else overhears and says they paint or sculpt or something, too.”

Vogel said she wanted to create a space where local artists could get together.

“My main goal was for artists to network and meet each other,” she said. “A lot of them are new, younger people.”

She said the response has been overwhelming, and at least 20 artists will display their work Sunday, from photographers and jewelry makers to painters and sculptors.

Works will be on display from 2 to 7 p.m. Sunday at the library, 140 Bradford Ave. Not normally open on Sundays, the library will open its doors Sunday for the artists and public.

Some items on display will be for sale, Vogel said, and refreshments will be available.

She said the library was the obvious choice to hold the show.

“The library is centralized,” she said. “We're busy all the time. It's just a great location. It's just about letting the community know there is so much art here and it's still alive.”
