Airdrie Public Library is participating in the arts
As part of our Art in the Library series, Airdrie Public Library (APL) is pleased to present the work of Becky Kundert.
The series will run in conjunction with the paintings of Veronica Funk, which are currently on display until Nov. 5.
Kundert is a self-taught artist who draws heavily on her background in woodworking in the creation of her art.
Incorporating a variety of industrial products in her one-of-a-kind artwork, she is able to use products that would otherwise go to the landfill or into the “sludge bucket.”
In addition to satisfying her creative side, Kundert has also significantly reduced the waste output from the woodworking company where she is currently employed.
Taking our ‘art’ outside the library walls, APL will finish off this year’s 17-day ARTember festival this weekend as part of Culture at the Creek. Throughout the weekend, Sept. 28 to 30, we will be offering a story tent filled with dual-language picture books for children.
Volunteers will be reading in their own language and in English, so please join us as we celebrate culture at the creek and in our community.
And speaking of languages, our Spanish for Travellers course begins Oct. 2 and runs until Nov. 20.
The course will cover the basics: greetings, telling time, asking directions, asking questions and other useful phrases for common situations.
A Spanish for Travellers course runs on Tuesdays from 7 to 8 p.m. The course is free, but registration is required.
