Ongoing Art Exhibit

Wood carvings and woven baskets by Gary Porter.

The Athol Public Library is currently exhibiting carvings, wooden butterflies, and two woven baskets by local artist Gary Porter. He has been a wood worker all his life and at 80 years old is still creating with wood. As foreman of a wood shop, Gary designed tables for Amherst College, the Boston Public Library, and a Presidential Library.

Gary Porter’s work can be seen in the display case located on the second floor of the Carnegie section during the library’s open hours, Monday – Thursday, 9:30 am – 6:00 pm.
