Roots of Knowledge Sculpture by Laura Allen

Tree roots dangle from the glass-roofed atrium of Headquarters Library.

Sculpted by artist Laura Allen from old books, glue, plastic, tape, and starch, the installation fills the expansive ceiling space and can’t be missed by the hundreds of library visitors passing through each day.

At a time when books on paper are increasingly sharing space on library and home shelves with eBooks, Allen is among a group of artists who are extracting from their paper bindings beautiful illustrations and the words themselves and transforming bookish elements into works of art. Read her artist's statement about these sculptures.

Awakening by Audrey Bruno

Audrey Bruno, Photographer, shares photographic images created on her journey of the past year and a half in this exhibition entitled “Shining Through…”, which will be on display in the Headquarters Library Atrium Gallery during the month of September.

Today, I read, "Light by itself is invisible, revealing itself only when reflected off something. God's presence is like that in some ways. Invisible. Perceived only when reflected by some object or action and striking the eye of faith. It is in God's light that we see light, for it is only when we see with eyes of faith that we recognize God's presence around us and know God as the source of that life."* Each of these images was a moment of Light, a glimmer of hope, a reminder of truth, given by grace, guiding me on my journey. I hope that you feel the Light Shining Through…

Audrey is a member of the Art First Gallery in Fredericksburg with new work at the gallery each month. Visit her website, www.stonecreekphotography.com, to see more of her photography. You may contact her through the website if you are interested in purchasing any of these photographic images.
