TCPL hosts Stealing Scenes: The Illustrator's Look at Shakespeare September 4 - October 31

Last year, while the world celebrated the 450th anniversary of William Shakespeare’s birth, a group of regional illustrators and artists decided to pay homage to the playwrite by using passages from Shakespeare as the inspiration for a new series of artwork. Unique imagery and personal interpretations of Shakespeare's timeless works are the result. Their varied artistic practices and backgrounds, ranging from lettering to children’s illustration, to fine art landscapes, provide a rich display of work.

Featured artists include:  Wynn Yarrow, Katie Vaz, Annie Zygarowicz, Johanna Van Der Steere, Marie Sanderson and Jennifer Gibson.  

A special opening reception is being held at the Library from 5 - 8 pm during September 4 First Friday Gallery Opening Night when the artists will be available to discuss their work.
After closing at 6 PM access to the Library will be through the BorgWarner Community Room door behind the bus shelter on Green Street.
