We have begun something new: to always have our entry gallery open. The Alice C. Sabatini Gallery has three exhibit spaces: an entry gallery, the main gallery, and a smaller space we call the Jewel Box. The entry space will feature works from the library’s permanent art collection. Right now, we’re showing Art Deco art and its influences, pulled from the library’s collection of more than 6,000 objects. Art Deco Style: Elegance, Innovation and Excitement is part of The Big Read celebration, a community-wide reading effort that will get people reading “The Great Gatsby” together.
We realized that people would often come to our doors when we were closed for exhibit change, and say “Aw, they’re closed.” Now, we’re not! Our entry gallery will always provide an arts experience. Entry gallery hours are the same as the library: Monday – Friday 9 am – 9 pm, Saturday 9 am – 6 pm, and Sunday 12 pm – 9 pm.
We will still be closing the larger interior space for larger exhibition changes, and you can take a look into that area to see what’s coming, or see us at work on the installation.
