Art In The Library

The ‘Art in the Library’ program is a natural extension of the library’s commitment to cultural education. The goal is to foster greater appreciation for art in our community by providing a venue for community access to many kinds of creativity and materials, while showcasing and supporting our many local artists.

The program presents local artwork for the encouragement and development of artistic expression. The displays run two to three months in length, and feature up to six artists at a time. The Scotts Valley Library invites artists living or working in Santa Cruz County to submit an application to display their art in an upcoming exhibition.   > application form.

Current Exhibition:"Painting the Golden State"
August 16, 2014 - November 2014 

Our beautiful golden state is the inspiration for the newest ‘Art in the Library’ program at the Scotts Valley Library. The ‘Painting the Golden State’ installation, running August 16 to November 1, features an exhibit of plein air and studio landscape paintings inspired by the state of California.

Contemporary California artists from the Santa Cruz Oil Painters (SCOP) travelled extensively through the state, and their works reflect Lake Tahoe’s sapphire blue waters, the rugged Big Sur coast, cool green redwood forests and Yosemite’s granite splendor. The public is welcome to come to the library and celebrate our love of California’s diverse landscapes through this exhibit of original oil and pastel

The public is also invited to meet the artists on Saturday, August 23 from 2-4 p.m. at a reception at the Scotts Valley Library, 251 Kings Village Rd. in Scotts Valley. Refreshments will be served compliments of Laureen Yungmeyer at State Farm, and music will be provided by Grant Stoner.
