Curtis Memorial Library in Brunswick Opening a New "Branch" ... Virtually!

April 9, 2014

 

Curtis Creative Spaces Provides Online Gallery

for Local Artists & Writers

 

BRUNSWICK, MAINE –  As part of its ongoing mission to build community and provide access for all, Curtis Memorial Library is excited to launch Curtis Creative Spaces, an online gallery for local artists of all mediums, writers, poets and more to showcase their work to a larger audience.  CurtisCreativeSpaces.com is now live, and will feature the work of new artists each month from Brunswick, Harpswell or Topsham.

 

“Hundreds of thousands of people visit Curtis each year and have the opportunity to view the artwork throughout the library, see the changing monthly art exhibits hanging in the Morrell Meeting Room, or pick up a volume from a local author,” says Library Director Liz Doucett.  “Curtis Creative Spaces now allows us to expand that reach to a larger community – through a ‘virtual branch’ that people can access any time and any day through the internet.  Not all artists have the resources to frame and hang a show in the Morrell Meeting Room.  This new online gallery provides additional opportunities for the community to get to know the work of the many creative people living among us.”

 

In addition to featuring new artists each month, CurtisCreativeSpaces.com will also highlight the artist(s) currently exhibiting in the Morrell Meeting Room; a list of local, published writers and poets; and an online gallery of the art that is part of Curtis’ permanent or loaned collection.  

 

CALL FOR ARTISTS:  Curtis encourages all local artists and writers in Brunswick, Harpswell and Topsham to email the coordinator at contact@CurtisCreativeSpaces.com if you would like to be featured and added to this evolving community arts space online.  

 

ART RAFFLEIn celebration of the “grand opening” of Curtis Creative Spaces, all those who visit CurtisCreativeSpaces.com on Monday, April 14th and enter their name and email address on the CONTACT page will be entered in a raffle to win a piece of art from one of the three artists currently featured.
