Exhibits

Current and upcoming exhibits and artwork at the library.

Atrium Gallery: Jeanne Tanks

Works by Jeanne Tanks are on display through July in the Headquarters Atrium Gallery.

Artist's Statement: Much of my love of the visual arts came about as a result of being legally blind for the first 13-years of life. Once I was able to see God's world clearly, I was imbued with a sense of awe I have never gotten over. We really do live on a beautiful planet, and I try to capture that beauty and sense of God's love for us in my art.

Artist's Statement:

As a photographer, my two main areas of interest are at different ends of the  movement spectrum- still life and animals. I take still life images because I love the details, and I take animal photographs because I love watching and interacting with animals.
