From the Harford County Public Library:
Young artists and musicians showed off their talent at two art shows held recently at the Harford County Public Library.
Jarrettsville Elementary and North Harford Elementary students and their families were the honored guests at receptions hosted by the Jarrettsville Library and the Whiteford Library on February 25th and March 4th, respectively. Drawings, paintings, ceramics and mixed media covered the walls and shelves of the branches, which had been transformed into vibrant galleries.
“It’s nice to have the kids see their artwork appreciated by the community,” said Mai-Ly Nguyen, art teacher at North Harford Elementary. Nguyen, who has participated in the event for several years, said the art receptions “bring families together with the Library.”
After touring the exhibits, visitors enjoyed musical performances by students. Violinists and horn players took to the center of the floor, where they played popular melodies to the delight of adoring fans.
Upcoming additional art receptions include the Joppatowne Art Show from noon to 3 p.m. Saturday, March 21st at the Joppa Library, the North Bend Elementary Art Show from 6 to 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, March 25th at the Jarrettsville Library and the Dublin Elementary Art Show from 5 to 7 p.m. Monday, May 4th at the Whiteford Library.
