Welcome to the Town Hall Library!

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 

ANNOUNCEMENT: 

Calling all Artists! Town Hall Library features artwork / craftworks of all sorts on our Art Gallery Wall and in our locked display cases in the McBroom Community Room.  I am looking for exhibits for September.

Currently, we need sculpural art for our display cases: wood carvings, pottery & ceramics, metalworks, glass works, paper mache' pieces, textile craftworks, anything that would fit in our cases and is appropriate for public viewing, which of course includes children.

If you create such work and would like to display here at the library, please call us at 262-966-2933 and ask for Stephanie.

FEATURED ARTISTS                                   

North Lake artist, Lynn Rix, is showing her paintings on our Art Gallery Wall.  She began painting in 1995 while living in France.  She couldn't help but be inspired in a country that produced so many marvelous artists.  She loves the challenge of looking at a familiar scene and simplifying it into shapes, colors, and her own vision.  She particularly enjoys painting "en plein air" (outside).  Lynn has many courses of study, professional memberships, and juried shows to her credit.  Her work is for sale, with 20% of the proceeds being donated to The Friends of the Town Hall Library's Tom Harbeck Speaker Fund.

                                   

Elizabeth Braun grew up in Merton and was an employee of the Town Hall Library for two years.  "Bizzie" is currently a student at St. Ambrose University in Davenport, Iowa, studying psychology, painting, and theology.  While she is home for the summer, Bizzie invests her time in her job at Lake Country Playhouse teaching youth theater, and graduate school applications for occupational therapy.  She first began working with oil paints two years ago and has enjoyed the challenge they present.  This collection of paintings integrates reality with imagination to create a whimsical, dream-like world of endless possibilities.  Her work is in the McBroom Community Room.

Both artists' paintings will be on display through August.
