SOS in the Central Library

Some great photos and text from Jane Milner-Barry:
The Central Library has taken Open Studios to its heart and kindly found space for nine artists this year.
   Margaret Sadler's unique wall pieces, some celebrating industrial themes with embroidery techniques more usually applied to landscapes and fantasy, and Rachel Coyle's almost luminous fused glass artworks and jewellery, could be found in the foyer.
 In the main concourse, visitors were chatting to Bee Operanto and Val Gibbons and admiring Gavin Salisbury's surreal miniatures.
 

     Suzie Simmons had her stall just inside the main door.
  Here is a delightful miniature children's book written and illustrated by Suzie.
 Carmen B. Norris, Carole Humphreys and Philip Robinson displayed their work in the Library Corridor Gallery.
 Carmen, seen above, was demonstrating how she constructs her intricate collages,

  and Carole was working on an addition to her tabletop display of exotic circus performers and dream creatures, which seemed to be taking on a life of their own.
