The Reilly League of Artists has just launched their new project, Faces of Westchester Libraries. This project celebrates the staff of our local libraries through the art of portraiture.
Librarians from town libraries and local schools will be sitting for artists at the league studio in White Plains every Tuesday evening throughout the year. As our libraries take on more projects: ESL, resume writing, internet skills and access, the face of the modern library might seem to be changing. But, in fact, there is always a human being behind the library’s shifts in technology, access, and mission. This project helps people move their view from their computer or book to the person that is helping them find a publication, instructing them how to use the computer search system, reading to children during Story Time, or staffing a school library.
This program was created by league members Michelle Burton, an arts educator and painter, and Pam Tucker, also a painter. If you work in the library system and would like to be the subject of a painting, or if you are an artist (beginner or advanced) and would like to participate, please contact the Reilly League at 914 761-6124.
