Tri Kappa Art Show

Now on display in the Gallery is the Tri Kappa Art Show. An annual event for over 25 years, the Tri Kappa Art Show features submissions from students in all three county high schools. The approximately 250 pieces in this year's show will be on display through Saturday, March 29.

Submissions were accepted in 12 categories:

Each year, a local artist is selected to act as judge for the show. This year's judge is Pat Fay, an artist with 30 years of experience.

Cash prizes are awarded to the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place finishers in each category. There is also an overall "Best in Show" award, as well as a "Tri Kappa Choice" award. All winners will be honored at an Awards Ceremony and Reception, which will take place on March 26 at the Library.

Tri Kappa is a unique philanthropic organization that exists only within the state of Indiana. The service sorority was founded by a group of seven young ladies in 1901, and has since spread to include 146 Active Chapters and 114 Associate Chapters, totaling almost 9000 actively participating members.  Support for the Fine Arts has always been a main goal of Tri Kappa, which exists to bring women together to promote charity, culture, and education.

Be sure to visit the Library's Gallery between now and March 29 to view the wonderful talent that exists in our three Montgomery County high schools!

Now you can find more of the graphic novels you love, 
or discover new titles!

Winner of 14 Eisner Awards, Fables tells the story of your favorite storybook characters in a completely new way.

If you've ever wondered what happened after "happily ever after", you'll love Fables!

CHEW : the omnivore edition. Vol. 2What if you could solve crime just by eating? In John Layman's CHEW, detective Tony Chu gets psychic impressions from everything he eats. He can take a bite of a tomato and see the dirt it grew in, the farmer who picks it, and the chef who cooked it. Or, he can eat a bite of chicken and see something else entirely. And in Tony's line of work, he has to chew some pretty unpleasant things...

Locke & key. Volume 5, ClockworksJoe Hill won an Eisner Award for best writer for his series Locke and Key. Locke and Key tells of the Keyhouse, an unlikely New England mansion, with fantastic doors that transform all who dare to walk through them. The island of Lovecraft is home to a hate-filled and relentless creature that will not rest until it forces open the most terrible door of all.
