An Autumn Affair

The 2014 DSWPS exhibit at the Anton Art Center was eye candy for the soul and inspiration for the heart. It included works in charcoal, watercolor, ink, acrylic, oil, gouache, and pastel, as well as 3-dimensional sculpture, assemblage, wood block prints, and the infamous mixed media.

Dara Tolbert Brooks chaired the exhibit, with help of many kinds from Richie Campbell, Kathy O’Connell, Janet Kondziela, Lorraine Gedeon, Sue Kwolek, Tina Seitz, and Charmaine Kaptur.

About the Anton Art Center

The Center is the premier venue for the arts in Mount Clemens. The building has a rich history, beginning with its construction in 1904 as one of 1500 libraries across the nation financed by Andrew Carnegie, American industrialist and philanthropist. It  was Macomb County's first Carnegie library. In 1969, when the community had outgrown the original library, the building was saved from demolition through efforts of the Mt Clemens Art Association. It was then added to the State of Michigan's Register of Historical Places and started a new life as an important force for local art.
