Straight From the Heart

Mixed Media Display by Joanne Ballert- George

Joanne discovered art journaling and learned to love mixed media. She believes that creativity has a healing and nurturing effect on the mind and body.

She uses what she has for art supplies using many recycled materials to reduce the environmental impact. Her creative inspirations are abstract designs in nature, bold colors and unusual textures and patterns.

Her art is available for viewing here in the Library Gallery or on Instagram @glovergardener57 and Facebook (Joanne Ballert-George).

Here are some on display at the Library:

Flower Girl
Dark Wind
Spin Out

Exhibits have been done by local craftsmen. Several are available for either a donation to the library or for a fee.

Many thanks to the owners who have given them to the library for showing in the gallery so you can enjoy the views of Caspian.
