Artists invited to take a canvas and 'Build a Better World'
Mattapoisett — The Friends of the Mattapoisett Library invite artists of all ages to create their vision of “Build a Better World” on an 8 x 8-inch canvas to raise funds for the Friends in support of library programs. The fundraiser kicks off the week of March 1 when members of the Friends will distribute the canvases from 4-7 p.m. in the Reading Room. Everyone is welcome to participate, no matter what skill level or artistic experience they may have.
Canvases can be decorated with an original design in any medium – paint, pastel, collage or markers – and will be on display throughout the library from Tuesday, May 2 to Saturday, July 29. Each canvas will be available for purchase for $25 and all proceeds benefit the Friends, a nonprofit group that supports the Mattapoisett Library.
A reception to celebrate the artistic efforts of all participants will be held at the library on Tuesday, May 16 from 6-8 p.m. Refreshments will be provided by the Friends.
“Build a Better World” is the theme of this summer's statewide library summer reading program. Each artist is welcome to interpret the theme.
