The art exhibit at Oak Ridge Public Library for the month of August is a collection of drawings and paintings by young artists from Girls Inc. of Oak Ridge.
This organization first began in 1976 as a girls-only sports program, but quickly grew into an after school, summer camp and sports program for girls between 5 and 18 years old. Girls Inc. serves over 850 girls per year.
Girls in the program are encouraged to be strong, smart and bold. The bold colors of these paintings certainly reflect that inspiration. The 11 works on display are introspective, detailed, lively, and reflect each artist’s personality.
Visit the library during the month of August to view the expressive works of these young artists. For more information on programs, services and exhibits at the Oak Ridge Public Library, call (865) 425-3455 or visit them online.
