What do you do, feel, and ponder during the winter months? Is it a time for reflection on the past, or on the long dark nights, or on dreaming? Or is winter a time for moving towards your hopes and dreams—planning things to come, of the lengthening days, or possibly far-off summer adventures?
Often through art we can express these feelings and thoughts. Using color, brushstroke, mixed media, or drawing, we often “get our feelings out.” These images can be powerful, meaningful, and healing. Sometimes words, a poem, or even a short story can accompany these images.
If this kind of artwork inspires you, the Questa Public Library would like to invite you to participate in their winter show, “Inner Reflections Through Art,“ scheduled for January 1 through March 31, 2022.
The requirements: The artwork can either be 2- or 3-dimensional. If 2-d, it must be framed and ready to hang with a maximum size no larger than 30 inches in any one direction. A 3-d sculpture should not be taller than 20 inches and be able to sit on the shelves. A written poem or short story is encouraged as an accompaniment, but not required.
Please join us in a visual expression of your inner reflection! If you would like to participate in this display, contact the library for more information at firstname.lastname@example.org. NOTE: Only public-appropriate artwork and writing will be displayed.
