On the Art Wall  -- in the library's main floor Miron Fireside Room

Working primarily with collage, she can reorder and rearrange fragments into new stories. Karla is a long-time friend of libraries and an art specialist with the Appleton schools.  Her artwork has never been more masterful. 

Meet the artist - Karla will be at the library on Saturday, July 22 from 10:00am to 12:00pm by the Miron Fireside room, to share how she creates many of her pieces and visit with the public. Coffee and light refreshments will be served.
