The Library has been working to make the CRPL West a welcoming, comfortable and warm environment for our customers. We are making a series of changes over the next few months, one of which officially begins November 1.
The Red Wall Gallery, a specially designed display area in the CRPL West, will open on November 1. The first show will feature three local photographers: Wilford Yoder, Delores Meister, and Jen Johnson.
Wilford Yoder is a celebrated local photographer whose images have been published in books, magazines, calendars, and even used as book covers. He especially enjoys outdoor photography (scenic, wildlife, and travel). He was the North Central Camera Club Council Photographer of the Year in 2003, 2008, and 2009.
Delores Meister has been making photographs since 1981. She is a nature lover who enjoys photographing the mountains, birds, and wildlife of Idaho, Montana, and Wyoming, as well as the red rocks of southern Utah. She lives in Solon and is a member of the Iowa City Camera Club.
Jen Johnson is a local photographer who has been capturing the essence of her surroundings with her camera since high school. Her series, “Garden Meditation” illustrates the relationship between nature, the Earth, and one photographer.
We will be hosting a reception from 5:30 p.m. – 7:30 p.m. on Friday, November 5. Please come and see the new space and celebrate the display of public art in the Library.
