If you’ve never seen the style before, you’ll want to stop by the Sidney Library’s Smart Community Room now through late February. Local artist Shannon Delany’s cut paper artwork is on display and is absolutely breathtaking. Ms. Delany is also hosting a workshop where you can learn the process from her. More information is posted at the Sidney Library, and we will share it online soon.
