Art in the Stacks is an exciting, dynamic display of art at each Calvert Library location. New exhibits appear every two months in Prince Frederick and at Southern Branch and every month at Twin Beaches Branches and every three months at Fairview Branch. The intent of the designated spaces (9 spaces in Prince Frederick, 4 spaces at Fairview Branch, 12 spaces at Southern Branch and 1 wall at Twin Beaches Branch) is to showcase the artists of Southern Maryland and/or artwork which has Southern Maryland themes. Professional, emerging and student artists are invited to exhibit. Individual artists as well as groups of artists may participate. All art must be appropriate for family viewing.
Art in the Stacks began in 2012 and has met rave reviews. Each new show decorates the libraries with its own special style. Acrylics, oils, photography, pencil and chalk have all adorned the library’s walls. Executive Director Carrie Willson-Plymire remarked, ”As a citizen in Calvert County who spends a lot of time in the library, I am delighted to be exposed to so many talented local artists!”
