The Delaware County Historical Association will have an exhibit on display in the Sidney Library’s Smart Community Room now through March 30th, 2016. The focus is on hand quilting from 1770 – 1916. All quilts were made in the local area. We hope you will stop by to see these beautiful items anytime the library is open.
The featured artist for the month of May is Kevin Klumpp. Mr. Klumpp has dealt with many challenges in his life, including being unable to speak and learning to communicate through sign language. He is very passionate about drawing and photography. Many of Kevin’s drawings take several days to complete and the inspiration for his work is not always known. Please stop in to the Smart Community Room and view his work any time our library is open.
Cut paper artwork is a delicate process that requires a lot of patience. 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.
Starting on December 20th, the work of Jim Bryden will be on display in the Smart Community Room. Mr. Bryden is a stonecutter from Sidney Center who also creates beautiful quilts. These quilts will be on display and we encourage you to view them whenever the Sidney Library is open.
Megan Gray, a Sidney high school alumna and recent graduate of SUNY New Paltz, will display her senior thesis artwork in the Sidney Library’s Smart Community Room during the month of August. Megan’s exhibit is titled Geo Metric Schema which focuses on layering and patterns to create beautiful works of art.
We encourage you to stop in and view this exhibit anytime the library is open.
