Since its inception the library has been the catchment for the works of artists and artisans. Numerous exhibits and curated shows have provided individuals of all ages and ability with a venue for display of their works. Over time, the library acquired a representative collection of works that reflects the growth of individual artists and community tradition.
The Growing Place Collection is the virtual avatar of the community’s history in art.
“Dale’s work includes pebble art, spalted maple cutting boards, geometric wood art, and barbed wire art. Made from natural materials, reclaimed wood, and found objects, the items in [his] shop include wall art, vases, mirrors, tables, squirrel feeders, cutting boards, tea light candle holders, platters, and wine bottle holders.”

“I do everything from spinning yarn,
felting items, making things on my looms to raising sheep and processing it for spinning/felting”

I am an artist living in Central New York. I specialize in watercolors, using color and abstraction to symbolize the natural world.
