Tasnuva Rahman Exhibiting during December

Tasnuva Rahman is a budding young Tomball artist with international influences.

Born in Dhaka, Bangladesh, Ms. Rahman graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in Fine Arts from the University of Dhaka, with a specialty in Oriental Art. She has exhibited her work in four group exhibitions in Dhaka and three here in Tomball; the latter, with the Tomball Art League and the Northwest Art League.  She has also illustrated a children’s book.

You are invited to come to the library meeting room during the month of December and enjoy the delicacy of Tasnuva's work, drawn from legends and living and non-living things. Most of the paintings are watercolor, with some experimental pieces in acrylic, mixed media, and graphite. A December treat!

 

We're open Monday and Tuesday this week

Come in and pick up your books, audio books, and DVDs for Thanksgiving weekend Monday or Tuesday this week, because we'll be closed from Wednesday to Sunday inclusive for the Thanksgiving holiday.
