Exhibits at Southwest

Southwest Library currently has two exhibits being held March through May 2007.

Artists from the Orlando Oriental Brush Painting Society have several of their paintings on exhibit throughout the library. The Society is a group of artists who practice the long-established techniques of Chinese brush painting. Chinese brush painting requires the use of bambo brushes, black ink or watercolor pigments and rice paper which is soft and gentle. This art form demands discipline, first of oneself, and then of one's tools. In March, three Society artists presented a demonstration/class at the library (see Photo Gallery).

Carol Smith, local collector is displaying her collection of photos, books, documents and other articles dealing with Harriet Tubman and the Underground Railroad. During Black History month in February, Carol presented a program on her collection (see Photo Gallery).
