Two notable artists will take up a six-week residency at the Wilmington-Stroop Branch of the Dayton Metro Library. Photographer Paula Willmot Kraus and collage artist Marsha Monroe Pippenger will occupy the Library’s Opportunity Space, September 3 through October 10, to work on a project they’re calling “Angles of Reflection.”

“Angles of Reflection refers to the Reflections theme of the Wilmington-Stroop Branch Library’s Children’s Area, and also the concept of personal reflection,” said Willmot Kraus. “Reflection can be interpreted in many ways – optical reflections of images or colors, personal reflections, reflecting on days gone by.”

There will be many opportunities for the public to get involved. Children, teens, and adults are invited to participate in the creation of both individual, stand-alone pieces and a group project for display at the Library. The artists will also collaborate with Teen Services Librarian Fred Kirchner and the Teen Writing Group to add a writing component to the experience, merging words with art.

Paula’s experience lies in photography and she will use the cyanotype as a material. Marsha has a vast experience with collage. Each workshop session will be adapted to meet the needs of the broad range of patrons the library serves

“Within each discipline, we’ll have discussions on composition, color, line, shape, texture and other design theories appropriate to the age group,” said Pippenger.
