About Our Artist
Canastota artist, Erica Dale Strzepek is the featured artist at the Canastota Public Library during the months of July and August. Her summer exhibit in the Lawson Community Room on the lower level of the library features original works in watercolor and ink.
Erica's subjects capture emotion and memories such as a cold winter walk, simple collected treasures from the beach, or the reach of a rose hip cluster. She finds interest in the forgotten allure of a former treasure or the simple beauty of nature.
To learn more about Erica's work, you can connect with Erica through her art blog at ericadalestrezepek.com.

I wear several different hats at the library. Sometimes, you can find me at the circulation desk. I also work with the teens creating and coordinating teen programming. And, I am always looking for new ways to get our library information out to our patrons. This is our first attempt at blogging and we hope that the community finds these blogs to be helpful!
