Upcoming Gallery Opening

"Storytellers" Friday, August 18th from 5-7 pm

Storytellers: A Celebration is a show that will include artwork from several local artists. The show will open August 18, 2023 at the Scott County Public Library. This celebration of storytelling will include a visual exploration of why we choose to tell stories as well as why we choose the subject matter we do. Live music & light refreshment will be provided. Come join the fun!

The Art Gallery located inside the Scott County Public Library is a unique space that provides opportunities to enhance the community’s appreciation of the arts. Curated exhibits featured in the Gallery are family-friendly, easily accessible, open to the public during regular library hours and are free of charge.

The Gallery Curator plans and facilitates two types of exhibits. Solo shows present a large body of work from one artist; while potpourri shows feature the work of a group of artists, each of whom have more limited bodies of work or experience.
