Sherman Library – Art Exhibition
Every few months the Sherman Library, as part of an effort to promote cultural enrichment, features the works of a selected local artist. Over the course of a year, many different types of art can be seen such as traditional, abstract, watercolors, oils, pastels, as well as photography. Not only is the artwork enjoyed by library visitors…it’s for sale. In fact, a percentage of any sale is donated by the artist to the Sherman Library. The Library will hang your artwork for you. If you are interested in showing your art at the Sherman Library please contact via email: SLPrograms@biblio.org

Open Studio Tour – December 3 & 4
The Sherman Artist Association is looking for artists interested in opening their studio or exhibiting at a pop-up location. If interested in exhibiting or opening up your studio, email Lisa or Linda. The fee is $50 to participate which helps the association with the costs of the brochures, signs, and advertisements. Take a look at last year’s participants!

Art Tag Sale
Many artists have supplies they no longer use or art they tried but did not enjoy. The Sherman Artist Association would like to put on an Art Tag Sale. We are interested in doing this event with a book sale or some other activity. Have a thought, please contact Linda. You can find everything you need for your next art project or something new to try at the Art Tag Sale without spending a fortune. At meager prices, we will offer painting supplies, canvasses, frames, photography equipment, fabric, yarn, jewelry-making supplies, displays, and lighting!
