All Things Slow

at Meridian Library

August 17 – November 2, 2020


This is now an online-only show.

Here is a chance to celebrate snails & tortoises, slow food, tides and time, the moon path or sunrise or anything else that lives in the slow lane. Watching paint dry, waiting for water to boil or walking an old dog. Lazy long summer days, dog days.  Does time stand still?  Slow down and smell the roses. Take the long way home.  As always for the library, please keep it family-friendly.  Feel free to embellish with your own 100 words or less.

There is no longer a size limitation for this show and 3D works are now welcome.

Please read carefully, as many details have changed due to COVID
