MONROE — Monroe Free Library has served many purposes in 107 years - research center, storm refuge, performance venue and craft area.

One thing they never could be, due to space constraints: Art gallery. But it turns out that that's one more thing that is changing thanks to their newly expanded building at 44 Millpond.

The library's Featured Artist program will showcase visual artists from Monroe's diverse community. Painters, photographers, comic artists, scrapbookers and anybody else local who makes art that can be hung, are invited to contact the library to inquire about displaying their work.

The display space will kick off in September featuring the photography of Cheryl Fils-Aime of Cherfoto Images.

Fils-Aime is a lifestyle portrait artist who enjoys capturing the photographs of women from the very beginning of life to advanced age.

She sees the beauty of life in images of maternity, newborns, children, teens and mature women.

She combines her technical skills with a natural warmth that allows her to read people quickly, make them comfortable and then seize upon their true spirit.

She has been professionally photographing for more than 25 years and has loved every minute of documenting the nuances of life with her camera.

Her art is featured at her web site, cherfoto.com.

Local artists who will be featured in 2015 include:

• Painter Minjin Kung (October).

• Photographer Phyllis Goetz (November).

• Cartoonist Al Nickerson (December).

For more information, call the library at 845-783-4411 or visit online at http://monroefreelibrary.org.
