Wilton Library’s October art exhibition, “Art & Text,” opens with a free reception on Friday, Oct. 11, from 6 to 7:30 p.m. The concept of this exhibition — Art & Text — was borne out of Art Spaces in Fairfield County Libraries, a consortium of 13 libraries that offer curated visual art exhibitions, of which Wilton Library is one.

The featured artists in Wilton Library’s exhibition are Peggy Dembicer of Avon; Charles Herbstreith, Ed MacEwen and Marian Wulffleff of Wilton; Nancy Moore of Ridgefield; Erin Nazzaro of Redding; Eileen Panepinto and Liz Ward of Weston; Bonnie Sailer of Newtown; and Jean Tock of Carmel, N.Y.

In addition, works by the following artists represented by Rhonda Brown and Tom Grotta of browngrotta arts in Wilton will also be shown: Dona Anderson of Washington state, Kate Hunt of Montana, Naomi Kobayashi and Toshio Sekiji of Japan, Judy Mulford and Sylvia Seventy of California, Dana Romeis of St. Louis, and the late Ed Rossbach.

Booth Library, Fairfield Public Library, Ferguson Library, New Canaan Library, Norwalk Public Library, Pequot Library, Plumb Memorial Library, Ridgefield Library, Stratford Library, The Westport Library, and Weston Public Library.
