Spring is in full bloom at the Central Library as patrons can view the work of local artist Rae Duncan and the Vivid Blooms art exhibit.
Duncan’s Paper Flower Garden evokes spring with over 450 hand-cut craft flowers in a rainbow of colors and a variety of shapes and sizes.
Duncan makes decorative wreaths from recycled books. Each book page crown has its own unique beauty resulting from the way the pages have been cut, dyed, deconstructed and then rebuilt.
Director of the Newnan-Coweta Art Association, Duncan works primarily with paper in all of its formats – archival, recycled, specialty, and cardboard, among others. She received her BA and MA in Fine Arts from California State University in Los Angeles.
Professionally, she has over 35 years of artistic experience in the corporate field, starting as an illustrator and graphic designer and progressing to director of product development.
The Vivid Blooms exhibit will remain on display until May 7, after which the colorful flowers will be available for free, with donations to the library.
