Art beyond the library

Artist Tara Spies (aka Tara Spies Smith, Librarian) participated in the juried exhibition Exposed: The Contemporary Nude at 1650 Gallery in the Echo Park district of Los Angeles, California. Her photograph Court Folly, from a black and white negative, is in the Exposed: The Contemporary Nude online exhibition and in the published print exhibition catalog.

She also showed 8 silver gelatin and digital inkjet photographs in the exhibition Nudes in November at Blue Velvet Studio on Dauphin Street in downtown Mobile, Alabama. An article by Thomas B. Harrison, Press-Register Arts Editor, announcing and discussing the exhibit appeared in the Mobile Press Register.

Tara’s further involvement in the arts has led to her participation in SMAAC, the San Marcos Area Arts Council, where she is now serving as a member of the board and the Web Committee.
