Library Will Be Open Late For The Gallery Walk
clear

The library will remain open later than normal Friday night to host Cache Valley Center for the Arts Gallery Walk.

We will be featuring the art of Andy Worrall, Fine Art Teacher and Department Head at Fast Forward Charter High School here in Logan.

Worrall collects garbage - everyday trash from modern society. At his studio he analyzes it, noting its use, meaning and why it was thrown out. "The gutters of our lives are full of interesting things," says Worrall, "discarded, dirty, grimy and forgotten. I take these items and assemble surfaces, gluing, screwing, and attaching things together. Next, I paint over the whole lot with images and words that take a funny look at modern life. The 'norm' of modern living is my main target victim. The result is a humorous textured brightly colored eye catching contraption/painting."

When: Friday, February 13, 6:00 PM - 9:00 PM
Where: Logan Library
