Art Reception August 13th for Liz Campbell-Tompkins

Join us Monday, August 13 from 7:00 – 8:00 p.m. for a Reception of our Rotating Art August Artist Liz Campbell-Tompkins! As a retired Malden Public Schools 7th grade science teacher, Liz strives to illustrate the diversity of nature in front of us, or beneath us. There is a great variety of life right in our backyards here in Malden, but most are too small to appreciate. Liz’s goal is to raise awareness of the wonder surrounding our community.

Campbell-Tompkins’ art will be on exhibit at the Library through the month of August.

Art Reception July 9th for Grace Julian Murthy

Join us Monday, July 9 from 7:00 – 8:00 p.m. for a Reception of our Rotating Art July Artist Grace Julian Murthy! Her art is a journey of happiness that uses a visual language of humor, nostalgia, color, shape and everyday objects to illustrate that you can find joy in the simple things in life. She engages the viewer by using contrasting colors and juxtaposing the pop art style on wood. She welcomes the viewer on this joyous retro and fun journey. She believes that art exists all around us and all it takes to be appreciated is a closer look.

Murthy’s art will be on exhibit at the Library through the month of July.
