Artists Guild of Fillmore Hangs New Paintings in Fillmore Library

On a quiet Saturday morning, before the Fillmore Library opens to the public, members of the Artists Guild of Fillmore were waiting at the doors. Their purpose for being there was to mount a new mini-show of art works.

As the Library doors opened, the artists outside were found catching up with each others' news. Carrying one painting apiece, they turned one by one to enter the building. This event occurs four times each year in order to decorate the Library walls. It also gives the public an opportunity to consider owning and hanging an original piece of art in their own home. All the artists live in Fillmore and meet together monthly.
