Annual Adult Arts & Crafts Show

The Henderson Library is inviting adults ages 18 and older to participate in this year's annual Adult Arts & Crafts Show coming in September. The Arts & Crafts show is a combination juried show and silent auction, with all proceeds going to the library. Participants may enter one entry per category in the juried show and may enter as many pieces as they wish for the auction, or they may choose to contribute their juried show entries. All work must be original. The library will accept entries beginning August 23, 2021. Library staff and board members are exempt from the juried show but may contribute pieces to the silent auction and are eligible to bid on auction items.

The Art Show Reception will be held Monday, September 20, 2021 at 6 pm. There will be light refreshments and music.
