    The HWLCA is located at 239 Route 292 in Holmes, NY.

    Slide Slam: Making a Difference Digital Art Exhibition

    Theme: Using your artistic abilities, express how you could make a positive change in your own community. This change could be helping someone in need; creating a garden to beautify your village or town; befriending a person or family whose background is different from your own; or any manner of expressing change to help better the world in which you and your neighbors live. Simply allow your heart and talent to guide you.

    At this interactive art exhibit each work is projected onto a screen. The artist has 5 minutes to present their artwork, explaining each piece to the audience and their fellow artists. Artists may use work they have previously created that reflects the theme, or create art specifically for the show.

    15 artists will have the opportunity participate.

    Artists may submit up to five works of art.

    Email jpeg images of your artwork to Donald at adult@pawlinglibrary.org.

    Only images submitted by email will be accepted.

    Deadline: May 4, 11:59 pm.

    Artists notified of accepted work: May 17-19.

    Audience members will have the chance to interact with the artists following the viewing.

    By participating in this exhibition you are impacting the lives of others.

    Inspire our community and contribute your dreams and reflections for all to experience.

    This fast-paced art exhibition is designed to encourage community conversations and its inspiration is based on questions that arise from the PBS documentary American Creed.

    This presentation has been made possible through a grant awarded to the Pawling Library by the American Library Association and a partnership with the Holmes Whaley Lake Civic Association and the Pawling Library.

    To register for the Opening Reception please call the Pawling Library at 845-855-3444.
