MOSES LAKE — Artists will have a new place to display artwork at the Moses Lake Public Library, with the help to a local artists group.
The Desert Artists purchased and donated a system of hanging wires; the wires eliminate the need for unsightly stuff like nails. Cost was $200, with the library paying for installation, said Desert Artists president Leanne Hickman.
“I think libraries and art go together,” Roxanne Southwood said. Southwood is the Grant County regional manager for the North Central Regional Library system.
“We are very grateful. Very grateful for this.”
The hanging wires were installed in the children’s section, and provide more – and more accessible – space to hang art. Desert Artists members hung their paintings in the new space Friday.
Southwood said library administrators are looking for artists who would be interested in exhibiting. Artists who want more information can contact the library.
