Art at the Dorset Library
The featured artist at the Dorset Public Library during the month of March will be Anharad Llewelyn. The public is invited to an opening reception on Saturday, March 3, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.Growing up in a family of artists encouraged Anharad’s appreciation for art at a very young age. She moved to the Northshire in 1984, and has been an art teacher at Long Trail School for ten years; she also teaches adults and children in the community. Her work expresses her love of being outdoors and gathering family and friends in the kitchen. She most recently launched into the medium of collage painting, combing acrylic paint with a variety of papers, often hand-written letters and pages from her journal. All works are for sale, with a portion of the proceeds going to the Library. The Dorset Library is located on Route 30 in Dorset Village. Hours are Monday through Friday, 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Saturday, 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Call 802-867-5774 for more information.
