Arlo Monro is Wardsboro Library's Artist of the Month
The Wardsboro Library is proud to host an exhibit of beloved local artist and teacher Arlo Monroe. A reception will be held in the library at 107 Main St., Wardsboro on March 23 at 7 p.m.
The Monroe family moved from Iowa to Wardsboro in 1931. Arlo Monroe's father had bought a small farm consisting of 28 acres and several buildings on what is now Main Street.
Significantly, that farm is the present day site of the Wardsboro Public Library. It is fitting for Mr. Monroe's watercolor paintings to be exhibited in his family home to be enjoyed by those who knew him and also, a new generation of admirers.
His paintings are loaned by family and friends and include familiar scenes of Wardsboro's past.
Stop in during library hours and take a step back into time and at the same time realize that the beauty of Mr. Monroe's work is timeless. Library hours are Monday, 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.; Tuesday, 2 to 7 p.m.; Wednesday, 2 to 7 p.m.; Thursday, 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.,; and Saturday, 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.. For questions, call the library at 802-896-6988.
