For the past two years, the Orcas Island Public Library has added support for the visual arts on Orcas Island by inviting island artists to exhibit in the newly expanded library. The library is pleased to have had 27 artists display their work in the past two years and will continue this program for 2020. Thank you to all the wonderful island artists who exhibited in 2018 and 2019.
