Tyler Public Library will be awash in the arts during the weekend of Oct. 22 and 23.
For two days, the Library is opening its doors and floors to Art Around Every Corner – visual and performing artists exhibiting, demonstrating and talking about their work.
The Library continues to seek working artists from the East Texas area to participate in Art Around Every Corner, so there is still time to apply for an opportunity to put together a “mini-studio/gallery” of work in a major public space. By participating, exhibitors will also have the chance to meet fellow artists and expand their contacts in the community. The event is designed to bring artists together in an informal setting with the general public to enhance the role of art in the community and educate the public about the value of visual and performing arts in their lives.
A new feature of Art Around Every Corner this year is an exhibition of student art from area schools. Art teachers from kindergarten through high school have been invited to submit a limited number of the best works created by their students. Performing groups from schools will also be on hand during the weekend.
Artists will be present throughout the event on Saturday, Oct. 22 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Sunday, Oct. 23 from 1 to 4 p.m. And for those who just have to have a quiet corner to read or study, the Library staff promises you are sure to find at least one spot that will fit the bill. For more information about the event or apply as an exhibitor, please call the Library at (903) 593-READ (7323) or visit www.TylerLibrary.com.
