Artist of the Month

Each month a different artist’s work is featured on the second floor of the library. A “Meet the Artist” event for this month is on Friday, January 6 at 7 p.m.

The library is not responsible for the content of external sites.

January: Kara DeCarlo


An exploration of plants and animals through the medium of printmaking. The animals featured are all native to North America, and are paired with plants that share a ruling planet or an ecological niche. The prints on display were all created from November 2021 through December 2022.

Born into a family of makers, Kara DeCarlo has been creating since she could hold a crayon. As a young artist, she would doodle in the margins of her homework and request art supplies for every holiday. A painter by training, her love of printmaking began in high school, when her grandma gifted her some printmaking tools. She uses printmaking as a way to explore the natural world, and to share what catches her interest. Through printmaking Kara has created band posters, birthday and wedding invitations, and is currently at work on an oracle deck.
