Art in the Stacks logo with images of artwork by featured artist, Meghan EberlyJuly 1 - 31, 2024
Featuring Meghan Eberly in the Charley Krone Gallery

In July, artist Meghan Eberly will be displaying the exhibit titled SAHM. Often scribbled in the fleeting bits of free time she had while staying at home caring for her young son, these simple pen drawings aim to illuminate the myopic, claustrophobic, ego-shattering experience of early motherhood. Meghan Eberly is an artist, writer, and postpartum doula. She has a background in the social sciences (PhD dropout in socio-cultural anthropology, BA in anthropology and photography) and professional experience as a baker. She recently moved to the area with her husband and young son from Savannah, Georgia.

Art in the Stacks is a monthly gallery series at the New Cumberland Public Library in partnership with the New Cumberland Collective. Each month will feature a new local artist exhibit in the library's gallery spaces.

Art in the Stacks logo with images of Papua New Guinea map and artifactsJuly 1 - 31, 2024
Featuring Papua New Guinea Artifacts in the Main Floor Showcase

In July, Bonnie Morton will display the exhibit titled The Land of the Unexpected:  Papua New Guinea Artifacts. Bonnie (NCU Children’s Circulation Assistant) lived in the highlands of Papua New Guinea (PNG) for 20 years and enjoyed collecting various beautiful and interesting artifacts. In this month’s display, you will see samples of New Guinea art including carvings, baskets, textiles, costumes, and paintings that represent their unique culture. PNG is located on the eastern half of the island of New Guinea, just north of Australia, and is the most linguistically diverse country in the world with over 850 distinct languages and tribal groups. It is a beautiful country with an abundance of natural resources from the mountains to the sea. Don’t hesitate to ask Bonnie about her experiences living in “The Land of the Unexpected” when you see her!
