Upstairs Display Case

 Nostalgia for one’s childhood is often made up of the “little things”: a favorite plaything, a particular birthday party, the unconditional love of a family pet, or a story read again & again from a little Golden book. These original editions represent years of finding by chance or searching through book dealers the favorite childhood books of one Metrowest library patron. Each Golden Book evokes for her a warm memory of a time, place, or individual.

Anthony Antonellis is exhibiting five of his unique wood creations in the fireplace lounge area, adjacent to the main circulation desk, and another one is exhibited near the public computers. The pieces are intricately patterned wood assemblages, carefully crafted and finished. Enjoy this visually dynamic exhibit.

On extended loan, in the downstairs conference room are photographs by Bill Horsman, a commercial and fine art photographer who has exhibited in the library and currently has his studio in downtown Ashland. A very fine exhibit featuring Bill’s creative photographic imagery of water and window reflections.
