Congratulations to Jody Mussoff, Doug Dunlop, and Huston Dove, Libraries catalogers whose artwork was selected for inclusion in Artists at Work 2011, a juried exhibition organized by the Smithsonian Community Committee.
Jody's piece is an earthenware plate titled Woman With Bird. The bird looks as if it's taking off into flight from inside a book's pages; this is yet another example of her charming book-themed art.
Doug has a highly imaginative oil painting whose title, Alchemical Consciousness, encapsulates key motifs in the work.
Huston Dove, contract cataloger with LSSI, contributed a reflective photograph of water cascading out of a reservoir dam.
The Artists at Work 2011 exhibition is now in its fourth year, and we look forward to more staff contributions in coming years!
