Each month, the San Carlos Friends of the Library sponsors artists to show their works in the Library’s Community Room. The art takes many forms and is not limited to water color, oils or photography. Admission is FREE to all Art shows and Receptions.
Many of the artists will have an artist’s reception on the 3rd Saturday of the month when you can meet them and discuss their work. Light refreshments are served.Please stop by anytime the library is open and see these beautiful artistic displays. The Community Room is located through double doors on the left wall of the library through the Children’s section, and via double doors located in the back of the library. The light switch is on the wall to the right as you enter. Take a few moments to relax and enjoy! Also, please take the time to vote monthly for your favorte work of art. The voting box is hanging on the wall among the art work. The public’s favorite will win the “People’s Choic Award”, and be on display in the main library for an additional 2 months.
Most of the displayed art is available for purchase, and the artists donate a portion of the proceeds of their sales resulting from their San Carlos Library showing to SCFOL. Read more about each artist in their individual article below the schedule on this page.
