Event Details

The Library is pleased to host a month long exhibit of work by Brighid Graves,   A reception will be held on Friday, January 4th.

Brighid Graves is a Bennington, VT  based scrap wood artist. Brighid creates unique art from discarded pieces of wood.   Her wood wall quilts and abstract wood mosaics capture both a rustic and a modern sensibility. She plays with shape and texture through her choice of materials.  Brighid is a self taught wood worker and artist.  “I enjoy turning something broken into something new and different. It's not just fixing something, it's re-imagining something. Each piece of wood has it's own story and I get to add to the story.”  In 2017 she embarked on a year long art project called 365 days of peace. In an effort to develop a creative habit, and turn anger, and apathy in to compassion and action,  Brighid made a peace sign every day for a year. The project, 365 days of peace, explored violence and change became a philosophical journey as well as an artistic exercise. She hopes to turn the experience into a book. website
