Library as Art Gallery

We are fortunate to have on display a collection of paintings for sale by local artist Robin Howe Townsend. Ms. Townsend's works have been described as "nostalgic impressionism,...abstract intellectualism,...and whimsical collages."

She enjoys the "play" in some of her subjects--a Paris street scene, Cotswold cottages, and wooded landscapes, but she expresses a serious side in works that depict a worn path at sunset, contemplative women, or quiet surroundings.

You may have seen her brightly colored poster print of Chattanooga in local shops, and you can purchase it and her other works at her website
Art Without Boundaries: the art of Robin Howe Townsend.

She will also take commissions if you have a favorite location or subject you would like depicted. Or if your business or organization needs a fundraiser, she will create a piece specifically for your event.

The paintings that are on display in the library are for sale, and a portion of the sale price will be donated to the library. Please come by and enjoy the exhibit which will be on display for about a month.
