Calling Artists!

Hello, Artists of Tomball and environs! As you can see from this photograph of one side of our large meeting room, we offer a free place for artists to hang your art. Yes, you can book a place and exhibit your 2-dimensional works for a month--for FREE--at the library. We have spots open for 2016, so if you'd like to reserve a place for your paintings or sketches, call Barbara Mitchell at 832-559-4233 during library hours for details!
