Show runs August 16 - September 30, 2016
Lexington Park Library Gallery
When I was very young I would watch Bob Ross all the time dreaming about having my own art TV show one day. As the years went by I forgot about those dreams. But one Christmas, when I was 11, I got an art pad and paints. I started painting abstract butterflies and trees, and then I realized how much I loved painting and creating. The endless encouragement from my rambunctious big brothers, gave me hope that I could be a great artist one day! I’m now 14 and I paint, sculpt and draw all the time.
I hope you enjoy my work!
This Art Gallery is proof of the power of one woman’s hard work!
Candy Cummings had a vision to create an exhibit space in the Lexington Park Library, which would display the artwork of local artists.
The Library Board agreed that this would enhance the library experience by exposing library customers to the beauty and power of original art.
In 2005, the Lexington Park Library Art Gallery was created and through Candy’s hard work and dedication her vision became a reality.
In 2014, the St. Mary’s County Arts Council agreed to take over the coordination of the Gallery and Candy donated funds to create an Arts Council Library Gallery Fund which will provide for its ongoing support.
THANK YOU to Candy Cummings!
One woman who has truly made a difference to our library and to our community.
