The Olive Free Library Association will present its fifth annual Small Works Show featuring 50 regional Hudson Valley artists displaying 67 works. The exhibition, titled “Pandemonium,” will take place in the Library’s Community Gallery and will run from Saturday, November 19 through Saturday, January 7, 2023, with an opening reception on Saturday, November 19 from 3 to 5 p.m.
Nathalie Andrews and Elaine Ralston, curators of “Pandemonium,” have, together with other members of the Olive Free Library’s Exhibition Committee, put together a lively and varied exhibition of local and regional artworks, all limited to 12-by-12 inches, in many different media. The call for art resulted in 149 submissions, of which 67 were chosen.
The Library will also hold a fundraiser during the Small Works show: All Exhibition Committee members will be donating one of their own works to this exhibition. These artworks will be installed together on one wall in the Community Gallery and will be sold for $100 each, with 100 percent of the proceeds benefiting the Olive Free Library.
