Richland Library is excited to bring back this popular outdoor art exhibition series!
Local Artists will be at library locations to meet and greet customers and community members from their own neighborhoods and exhibit their works each month this Fall.
Our Pop-Up Art shows are intended to highlight the work of local, emerging visual artists and their unique personal ties to the specific communities where our libraries are located. Stop in to meet the artist, browse the art or make a purchase.
PS: Art makes great holiday gifts!
October 16: Richland Library Cooper
November 20: Richland Library Eastover
December 18: Richland Library Ballentine
In the event of inclement weather, this Pop Up will be rescheduled.
Exhibiting Artists this month:
Moona Wu is a published Chinese author and illustrator who has lived in the U.S. for more than 20 years. She has published eleven books in China and an English picture book on Amazon. Currently, she is a column writer and illustration with an American-Chinese newspaper (Washington Chinese Daily), which serves the Chinese community in the Washington, DC, Virginia, and Maryland areas. Most of her columns are about the lives and careers of Chinese immigrants in America.
Moona grew up in Chongqing, China. After she arrived in the USA, she earned her MBA degree as well as a web programming certificate. She had been engaged in a variety of occupations, such as a web developer, accountant, and dance teacher.
She enjoys expressing her inner feelings with colors and lines. Occasionally, when her literary work has encountered a bottleneck, she turns to expressing her feelings in painting. She understands that when words can't express the chaos around us, art has a power of its own.
Living in South Carolina for many years, Moona likes to use the arts to express Southern local color, such as landscapes and iconic plants, like oak trees, crepe myrtle, and muscadines. Many of her novels and short stories are set in the deep south.
Bernard O. Williams
Bernard Williams Artist: b. 1968, emerging artist from Columbia, SC.
I am an acrylic painter. I customarily work with canvas and begin pencil sketching before I create the vision that God has shown me. With my unique eye for color, I create color-inspired, eclectic, abstract paintings.
For the last 15 years, I’ve been creating abstract pieces, realistic portraits, cartoon characters and sport team mascots. These pieces were commissioned through word of mouth and some out of my desire to enhance my skills.
