October 1-31, 2014:  Air It Out: A Clothesline Project

Opening reception to be held Tuesday, October 21, 5-7pm at the Lexington Park Library.

A clothesline project is a visual display created by women who have survived violence, or by those who wish to honor women victimized by violence. These displays increase awareness of the impact of violence against women, celebrate the strength of survivors, and break the silence that often surrounds this traumatic experience.

Are you an artist and wish you had a place to display your artwork with others? The Lexington Park Library Art Gallery might be that place. Since it opened in 2005, many amateur, student, and even professional artists have displayed their artwork.

Contact local artist Candice Cummings at 301-863-6693 if interested in displaying your work. She recruits the artists to display their work and to curate the shows. The exhibits change every 4-6 weeks and a reception is held to recognize each artist.

The Art Gallery has been funded by a generous donation from local businessman Tom Daugherty and the Friends of St. Mary’s County Library.
