Creston Public Library features works of four local artists

Creston Public Library patrons will have two months to enjoy an art show featuring four local artists.

Now on display in the public meeting room and elsewhere in the library are pieces by Ute Bachinski, Anne Fetterley, Elaine Alfoldy and Andy Alfoldy.

A new hanging system in the meeting room provided by the Arts Council now holds paintings by the Alfoldys and Bachinski.

Fetterly’s sewn and collaged birds are on display above the computers near the library’s front. Other watercolours and a large pastel piece are placed near the library entrance.

“The artworks show the influences the Creston Valley has had on these artists as they paint and draw birds, Kootenay Lake, mountains, farms and food with exciting and interesting interpretations,” painter Elaine Alfoldy said on the weekend.

“Anne Fetterly and Alison Szpak are Arts Council volunteers who have overseen the art show transition from the successful shows organized by Val van der Poel in the Chamber of Commerce and the library,” she added.

The current show continues through March 3.

“I would like to invite people to visit our library, and our library art gallery,” Alfoldy said.
