AN UPDATE on the Black & White Exhibit:

In light of developments with COVID-19, the Library Arts Center is taking a brief pause while planning this show.  Staff and board are assessing when the Center will be able to physically open the gallery as a community gathering space for this show.  We may need to push the start date of the show a week or two later, and we may need to have a closing reception instead of an opening reception.  If developments in the coming days make it clear that the gallery will need to be physically closed longer, we will create a digital exhibit with those interested in participating in that format. 

In the meantime, we are taking a few days to figure this out before we announce which pieces will be included in this exhibit.  Thank you for entering this show, and for your patience while we sort this all out.  We will be in touch with further information next week. 

Thank you for your participation!
The Library Arts Center Team
