We invite everyone into the Betsie Valley District Library to see two very beautiful art pieces, on loan from local artist Marie Wohadlo! The first piece is an abstract quilt, of green fabric cones.
The second piece is titled "lllll.still.lllll" and was created in 2017. The piece contains 168,603 glass beads and was a Grand Rapids ArtPrize Nine Top 25 in the 2D Category in 2017. The spirit of nature shines through both art works. Come and experience them yourselves!
