FINE ART AND FASCINATING DISPLAYS
The Paso Robles City Library seeks to encourage the artistic and cultural interests of the community by providing space in the Library to display visual and other work. The Library Board of Trustees is responsible for selecting and scheduling displays. Typically, the Board will review in the fall and schedule displays for the following year. The duration of the displays is usually one month.
2017 Art Displays
"Art is what you can get away with."
Local Artist Mallory Caloca in July
For the past several years, local artist Mallory Caloca has explored organic shapes and textures in nature from feathers to insect parts to fungi and juxtaposed those components with cubist lines and shapes. Eventually she discovered a "micro-world" trend that she continues to explore. "I like people to explore my work in segments and then view a piece as a coherent unit. My earlier work concentrated in black and white portraiture, but for now, I enjoy the challenge of working with different colors and patterns," states Caloca. "I have enjoyed many art shows in the San Luis Obispo area over the years and look forward to seeing one of my pieces on the cover of Meat for Tea, a literary publication based in Massachusetts."
The public is invited to enjoy Caloca's artistic expression on display in the Paso Robles City Library the month of July.
Almond Country Quilts (June 2017)
The Almond Country Quilters are on display the month of June in the Paso Robles City Library. According to one member, "The quilts represent the maker's interpretation of a pattern or original design, choice of colors, style and fabric selections. Quilts may be made and completed by hand or may be machine pieced and machine quilted."
The mission of the group is to promote knowledge and encourage participation in the craft and art of quilting, patchwork, appliqué, and other aspects of quilt making.
Also is June, the Library's Display Case will present handmade stationery by Kathy Sobowitz.
