Keila Marie Ploof of Orange, MA has always been drawn to paper. She has been collecting and saving pieces that "speak" to her since childhood. It wasn't until recently that her love of painting and paper collided. Her artwork incorporates very old paper that is applied almost all by brush, just like painting. Each piece is either cut or ripped to create the “brush stroke” before it even hits the canvas. Texture, color, and light come alive and blend with her love of nature, creating a very unique art form.
In June the Book Group will be reading I Capture the Castle by Dodie Smith. I Capture the Castle tells the story of seventeen-year-old Cassandra and her family, who live in not-so-genteel poverty in a ramshackle old English castle. Here she strives, over six turbulent months, to hone her writing skills. She fills three notebooks with sharply funny yet poignant entries. Her journals candidly chronicle the great changes that take place within the castle's walls, and her own first descent into love.
New members are always welcome.
Copies of the book are available at the Main Circulation Desk.
