"Wonderland Forever" celebrates Alice in Wonderland and its creator Lewis Carroll. The multi-artist display features as small sculpture of Lewis Carroll created by the artist Valery Mahuchy who also sculpted the Archie statue in town! The exhibit will be on display for the months of March and April.
Stay tuned for a special Alice in Wonderland themed tea party in the children's room in April! Details coming soon.
A big thanks to Robert Rae for coordinating the exhibit.
Wonderland Forever began in January 2015 in celebration of the 150th anniversary of the publication of Lewis Carroll's classic Alice in Wonderland and has been on exhibit ever since at libraries, cafes, and other venues. A Wonderland Coat of Arms was created (by artist Trissa Tilson) and bronze bas relief by sculptor Valery Mahuchy. Other paintings (about 20) were made by Robert Rae who owns the exhibit. Come visit the library and enjoy the unusual characters of "Alice's Adventures Underground" with some new ideas about what "garden of Live flowers" could be. - Robert MacRae
