"Sutton Public Library"
Art Exhibit
July 2014

Librarian Nancy Bartels recently invited the Valley Arts Alliance to display art at the Sutton Public Library and Community Resource Center.

There are over 20 art pieces on display, created by Val Barber, Sandra Cook, Pat Garley, Dennis Jensen & Mary Tilly, Niki Pease, Kim Strickland, Carmen Summerfield, Judy & Peter Vars, and Colleen Wake.

These art pieces were created at Valley Arts Alliance events, such as the Wearable Art & Runway Fashion Show, the Raku Pottery Party, Art on Fire Iron Pour Art Fest, and the One-Tree Art Project.

But the biggest “Art Piece” is the building itself.

The Sutton Public Library and Community Resource Center was perfectly designed to fit into the surroundings of the Alpine Historical Park. Architects Alaska based their design on a coal washing facility that was in the area in the 1920’s. The project encompassed over ten years of planning and fund raising, with the grand opening on June15, 2012.

We are so impressed with the building that we will hold a Sutton episode of this year’s Alaska Home Companion at the Sutton Public Library on November 8, 2014

You owe it to yourself to visit this amazing library. The Sutton Public Library and Community Resource Center is located at 11301 N. Chickaloon Way in Sutton, and their hours are 11 to 8 on Tuesday & Thursdays, 10 to7 on Wednesday & Friday, and 11 to 4 on Saturday.
