In the Gallery (Rotates Monthly)
Featured Artist in the Gallery ~ Marc Chabot
The collection spans a body of work created over the last 40 years, mostly from the artist’s imagination, including a few abstract, some of our world, and some of another one. A few pieces have been reworked, and new works may be included, but for the past several years Marc Chabot has focused much of his creative energy on guitar, which he has played since the mid 1970’s. A reception for the artist is scheduled for Saturday, December 10, 2:00 – 4:00 PM. The artwork will be on display during regular Library open hours.
