Art at the Library


The Southwest Library is proud to present the paintings of Cuban-American artist Dalgis Edelson. Dalgis explores beauty and ugliness and the gains and losses of life, in her wonderfully complex oil paintings cast on regular canvas and wood. Drawing from her deep sense of spirituality, dreams and imaginative wanderings, Edelson creates worlds infused with symbolism and meaning meant to probe the intuitive flow of human experience.

Inspired by Goya, Dali, Kahlo and the Old Masters, Edelson's paintings delve into the mysteries of humanity and the universe to touch the viewer and lend greater insight into humanity's emotional terrains.

The library is also featuring the Kirigami work of Al Aki. Kirigami is a variation of origami that includes paper folding and cutting to create beautiful designs. Al is a local origami artist/expert as well as an actor and voiceover artist. Al is also a Japanese storyteller at Walt Disney World.
