Katherine Guo's winning entryWCCLS is very proud to announce the first place winner of our 2015 Teen Summer Reading Art Contest: Katherine Guo! 

An eighth-grader at the International School of Beaverton, Katherine has been awarded top honors for her unique and bold design which depicts a Mardi Gras style mask laying over an open book. Her design expertly captures this year’s Teen Summer Reading theme: Unmask

Katherine received a $150 gift certificate for Powell’s Books, and her art will appear on all countywide Teen Summer Reading publicity this summer.

Second place goes to Ashley Fenner, and Rebecca Dan's submission garnered her an Honorable Mention. Both are students at Glencoe High School and both will receive gift cards to Dick Blick Art Materials.
Second place - Ashley Fenner
Honorable mention - Rebecca Dan
This is the sixth consecutive year WCCLS has encouraged teens to capture the spirit of Summer Reading through their creative art. A total of 67 pieces were submitted at the public libraries in Washington County during the months of January and February. On March 10, feedback collected from local Teen Library Councils was reviewed and the winning pieces were selected. A big thank you goes out to all 67 artists who participated this year!

The Summer Reading Program inspires kids with a sense of wonder and helps to promote good learning habits. Summer Reading in Washington County will officially begin on June 1. Teens can sign up at their local public library to earn prizes for reading. More details about Summer Reading will be available later this spring.

The Teen Summer Reading Art Contest was made possible by a grant from the Oregon State Library.

North Plains Public Library Hosts Artwork by Anne Marie Grgich

News & Events - Thu, 2015-03-12 16:55
North Plains Public Library presents The Popes Apartment, a solo exhibition by internationally acclaimed American outsider artist, Anne Marie Grgich.

The Popes Apartment
by Anne Marie GrgichThis exhibit includes 15 multi-media collage pieces sourced from discarded library books. A reception for the artist will be held on Friday, March 13, at North Plains Public Library from 6 to 8 p.m. Refreshments will be served. The evening will also feature art viewing, music, and wine tasting at nearby Abbey Creek Vineyards from 6 to 9 p.m.

About the artistGrgich began making art at the age of 15 and was encouraged to continue doing so as her life’s work by her uncle. As a young adult, she barely survived a devastating car accident that left her in a coma, and upon regaining consciousness and functionality, decided to become a professional artist. She focused on painting faces and constructing creatures to help work through the pain and confusion brought on by the brain injury.

In 1981, Grgich had her first formal art show, and she continued showing regularly around the Pacific Northwest. In 1988, Grgich’s career took off, landing her work in galleries from New York City to Australia, Finland, The Netherlands, France, and the United Kingdom. Anne Marie Grgich has been compared to a modern-day Frida Kahlo, and North Plains Public Library is proud to feature Grgich’s complex and beautiful work. The exhibition runs now through the month of April.
