On Exhibit: Fantasy Ink

Fantasy Ink

This September we are proud to host a collection of ink drawings by Meena/Chompunut Ditchaiwong. Ms. Ditchaiwong had the following to say about her art:

"My interest in art started when I was young. I spent a lot of time reading comics, fiction and non fiction books, and drawing. That encouraged my passion for art. Now, when I create a new piece of art, it has a story behind it. For example, my picture "Owl" represents waiting and being alone. When I drew it I thought about when I first moved to Boston, how everything was new, and how I had to adjust to life in a new city. The picture is of an owl that is alone in the forest, but it is sitting in a big tree with a lot of details. There is only one character in the picture, but the amount of detail in the tree that the owl is in represents all of the new things for the owl to take in. The picture is an 11x14 inch ink pen drawing, and it took me about a week to finish the picture.

Are you an artist or do you know someone who's art you think would fit well in the library? Please submit an application to be considered!
