               Chair-ish Your Library-- 2015

The public is getting another chance to participate 
in a successful program from 2012: CHAIR-ISH 
YOUR LIBRARY!  
Here’s the deal: The Lakeville Public Library is 
asking the community to locate a sturdy used chair 
in their home, or purchase a chair that they would 
like to decorate.  The chairs can be wooden, metal,
 plastic, canvas, or fabric. They can be straight chairs, stools, rocking chairs, folding chairs, desk chairs, upholstered chairs, children’s chairs, Adirondack or other outdoor chairs. The ONLY requirement is that the chair is sturdy so it can be sat on at the end of the project. 

Rules for this process: The chairs must be decorated with original art. They can be hand painted, spray painted, collaged, creatively upholstered, beaded, knitted, or whatever is original.  The chairs may feature everything from fabric and floral to college team emblems, sports themes or any design the participant can think of. Participants will be required to provide their own materials and will be expected to seal the paint on chairs that are for outdoor use.

The dates: An application is available on the Lakeville Library website at www.lakevillelibrary.org and inside the Library. The creative part of the event ends when the chairs are decorated, dry, and ready to be displayed. The drop off date is Monday, March 30 between noon and 8PM. (The library cannot store chairs until they are to be displayed.) The application will have more details.

This CHAIR-ISH YOUR LIBRARY exhibit will take place in the Great Ponds Gallery inside the Lakeville Public Library throughout the entire month of April. 

The exhibit will end with a reception and a Silent Auction on the evening of Tuesday, April 28 at the Lakeville Public Library.  The money collected via the Silent Auction will benefit the Lakeville Public Library’s technology and collections of books.
For questions, please contact the Gallery Arts Committee at greatpondsgallery@hotmail.com.
