Art Under Glass, the September art exhibit at PCL, features the work of an exceptional group of artists. Come see their unique perspectives of the world transformed into visions through photography, pastel, watercolor, and silk painting.
The show will be on exhibit during normal library hours from Saturday, September 2, through Thursday, September 28, in the Collin Meeting Room. To meet these interesting and talented artists, please join us for a free public reception from 5:00 to 7:00 on Friday evening, September 8.
