New Art in Staples

New Art in Staples

Pam Collins (left) of Staples, was commissioned by the Friends of the Staples Public Library to create an original work of art for the library. Together the pieces measure 12 ft. wide by 4 ft. tall. A variety of colors and textures were incorporated to create the abstract fabric landscape. From left are Collins, Brenda Halvorson, Friends board member; Ellen Peters, librarian; and Gloria Palmer, Friends board president.
