Redding Artist Susan Durkee will submit her painting “The Redding Mark Twain” into the 41st Annual Mark Twain Art Show this week.
It seems fitting that this painting be part of the Mark Twain Library’s 41st Annual Art Show, since the library was founded by Mark Twain himself.
Over the years, the Art Show, a major fundraiser for the library, has grown in size and scope. Today the juried show features over 125 artists and a variety of mediums. Works are available for sale at prices lower than they would have in galleries, and 35% of the cost of each work sold is donated to the Library.
The show opens Saturday, Dec. 7, and will run through Sunday, Dec. 15, during library hours. The Mark Twain Library is at 439 Redding Road in West Redding. Call 203-938-2545. Visit www.marktwainlibrary.org/
