Blooming Artists

Opening Reception: Friday January 20, 6 - 8 p.m.

All welcome. Refreshments served.



The Sherman Library is pleased to announce an art exhibit of local, student artists.


Under the tutelage of prominent artist and Sherman resident Anda Styler, these aspiring students find their subject matter and connect with their own passion. Ms. Styler emphasizes that every individual has an inner color pallet and a style all their own. “Sometimes all you need is a little guidance and time to discover your own creative mind,” explained Ms. Styler.


In this show, the participants, who are from all walks of life, demonstrate their creativity and uniqueness. As one student points out, “It's a wonderful experience being free to express yourself, grow, develop skills and find a personal path into the world of art.”


Please visit the library and enjoy this showcase. Maybe it will inspire you to express your own artistic style!
