“‘Upcycled Cinderella’ is a hilarious production hitting the road Monday. The show features two school employees who jump at the chance to bring to life this celebrated fairy tale when the ‘real’ school assembly doesn’t show-up. The show features vibrant costumes and props all made from everyday objects.” … Bright Star website

Art Exhibition at the Library

The library on Emerson Avenue is currently hosting the artwork of local artist John Dawson in the gallery above the periodical section. John’s works consist primarily of oil landscapes of West Virginia. They tend to be realism with a touch of impressionism. He has produced and sold prints of a large sawmill in Nicholas County, WV. He has also painted homesteads and pets, on commission.

The library, which is located at 3100 Emerson Avenue in Parkersburg, will display John’s artwork in the gallery above the periodical section until November 29, 2016. For more information, or to inquire about purchasing one of John’s paintings, contact the Reference Librarian at 304-420-4587 ext. 511.
