Art & Exhibits in the Library

Santa Cruz Public Libraries provide exhibit space for art at branches across the county. We feature everything from ceramics to oil paintings to tapestries. Stop by to check out one of the exhibits listed below:

Oil Paintings by Anna Haulenbeek Huskey

    What: The artwork theme, "Abstraction and the Figure'', is inspired by human and animal forms, gestures and motions placed into imaginary environments. Each painting sparks a jumping off point for the artist as she imagines then creates additional abstract oil paintings. Learn more about the artist.

    When: Oct 2 - Dec 28th

    Where: Scotts Valley Branch Library

Above, Below and Art the World with Photographer Marc Shargel

    What: An award-winning marine life photographer, Marc has been capturing underwater images for nearly four decades. He has authored four books including three lavishly printed coffee-table volumes from his Wonder of the Sea series and presented at nearly every dive club and dozens of civic organizations in the greater Bay Area. Marc is well-known to local art lovers as well. His home-studio in Felton is a regular stop on the Santa Cruz County Open Studios tour each October as well as the newer San Lorenzo Valley Art Tour each May. Learn more here

Enjoy a family-friendly talk, a wide range of his remarkable photos, some traveling experiences and learn about the shocking disappearance of our kelp forests over the last decade.

Photographs by Donna Maurillo

     What:  Artist's statement: What does a woman do after moving on from a career in corporate communications? In my case, I started a second career as an artist. Photography, my artistic passion, became my medium. Now it's my time to enjoy my passion and to share it with other people.

My approach to photography is simple. I like to preserve moments—fractions of a second—that otherwise would pass unnoticed and forgotten. At the same time, I like to include hidden elements in my images—subtle shapes, new details, subliminal messages. This way, the image becomes new each time the viewer sees it. Learn more here.

     When: July 9th - September 24th

     Where: Downtown Branch Library
