Art in Martin Exhibit Moves Online
Martin Library is presenting its first online Art in Martin exhibit now through March 31st on the library’s website and YouTube. The exhibit showcases the work of S. Kay Wrenn of Skeleton Key Studio. Wrenn, a nonbinary artist from York, PA specializes in book illustration and dark arts. Their illustrations are in a few books from the Teen collection at Martin Library. They received their training from the Academy of Art University, San Francisco. CA. Wrenn works with pen & ink, paint, and mixed media.
“In this time of social distancing, we needed to find a way to provide our local artists a platform to share their work,” says Martin Library Adult and Information Service Librarian Angela Brown. Art in Martin provides local artists a venue in the community to showcase their talent.
The exhibit can be viewed on the Martin Library web page www.yorklibraries.org/York-martin/in-the-know/ and on the Martin Library YouTube playlist www.youtube.com/c/YorkCountyLibrariesPA/playlists/. Upcoming online Art in Martin exhibits from April through June will showcase how Martin Library staff members are using art to relieve stress during the pandemic.
