The art gallery of the Cape Coral Library, located at 921 SW 39th Terrace, is highlighting many different examples of creativity now through June 27. There’s something for every person, young and old, to enjoy.
The walls of the gallery hallway feature the work of award-winning nature photographer Susan Oliver. Her beautiful photographs include Florida birds, other wildlife and gorgeous scenes- many printed on high-quality metal that enhances their vibrancy. She often speaks about the magical moments encountered during excursions into nature and captured in these images.
On the walls of the alcove area will be the 20 awarded entries from the 18th Annual Children’s Environmental Art Contest sponsored by the Friends of the Cape Coral Library and the Cape Coral- Lee County Public Library. The winning artwork, created by youngsters 5 through 12, has been framed and arranged by age category on the walls.
The display cases in the library art gallery are filled with unique creations such as intricate handmade 3D Kirigami Pop Up Cards by KoriAnn Designs. While many have heard about origami, which involves folding paper, they might not be familiar with kirigami, which is cutting paper.
On exhibit in another lighted display case are Jan Butler’s incredible art glass creations. “Fused glass is as much science as it is art, with a lot of excitement thrown in each time one opens the kiln,” she says. You’ll love the latest glass projects Jan Butler has brought to the library gallery.
Changing exhibits in the Library’s gallery are sponsored by the Friends of the Cape Coral Library and are designed to afford local artists and artisans the opportunity to share their work in this public forum. For info, contact Monica Rahman, art gallery chairperson, at gallery@capefriends.org or visit www.capefriends.org. Follow “Friends of the Cape Coral Library” on Facebook.
