Paintings inspired by Poems

Our November display features paintings inspired by the poems of William Stafford. Lake Oswego Reads partnered with 18 local artists who created artwork inspired by one of William Stafford's poems. The paintings have been touring libraries throughout the state of Oregon for the past year and we are the last stop on the tour. Oregon is celebrating the Centennial of poet William Stafford. The town of Lake Oswego is especially involved because Stafford lived their for over 45 years. "ASK ME: 100 Essential Poems by William Stafford" was selected to be this years selection for the Lake Oswego reads program. Artists participating in this years display are:

Sally Bills Bailey, Bill Baily, Mary Burgess, Susie Cowan, Sonja Donnelly, Geraldine Foote, Susan Greenbaum, Dave Haslett, Sue Jensen, Jani Hoberg, Dyanne Locati, Ann Munson, Kara Pilcher, Jan Rimerman, Arletha Ryan, Beth Verheyden, Lisa Wiser, and Angela Woolley

Most of the paintings are for sale and prices are listed on the explanation cards. If the card has a red dot on it, the painting has already sold.
