May's Featured Artist at the AFL

On the Wall: 2009: Before After

Once upon a time, a very Very VERY short while ago, there was a very Very VERY different reality in place at the campus of the Ames Free Library. The parking lot did not exist. The garden was a ruin overrun by fallen trees and poison ivy. The historic library was crammed into one level. Check out the April photo exhibit to remember the time before 2009!

In the Glass Case: Wren Barger

Wren Barger’s ceramic pieces will be featured in the glass case at the library for the month of May. Her vibrant colors and imaginative designs will capture your attention. Wren Barger is an Easton, MA resident, and is a graduate of Bridgewater State University, majoring in Art, with a concentration in Photography and ceramics. Wren has received awards in several local juried shows, and has shown her work at the Easton Shovel Town Cultural District Art Co-op Gallery, as well as in various venues throughout Easton.
