Vermont artist Recille Hamrell will be putting on an exhibit titled "Multi Media Art: Collages" on the library's art wall in June. About her work, Recille states "In this art show I am celebrating my artistic journey. By tapping into my creativity and experimenting with paints, decoupage, stencils and stamps. I have learned how to have an flexible mind and be open to the unexpected. I love foraging this new life path and I eagerly look forward to my next mixed media adventure."

In the library's display case will be a collection of vintage water color tins curated by Rick Davis of Starksboro, Vermont. Rick's collection ranges from the 1940s-1960s, with a handful from the 20s and 30s. Some tins are cartoon-related, or contain nursery rhymes or fairy tales. There are a variety of themes and tins from manufacturers such as Binny & Smith and Milton Bradley.  “I have collected tins of all sorts for about 40 years. In 1973 I found my first children’s watercolor set at a yard sale. About two weeks later I found another similar one in an antique store. It was then that I realized I might be on to something.... I like them because they’re colorful windows to the past. A reminder of a gentler time gone by.” — Rick Davis
