Exhibition Space
The Artwork of Sophie Gerry

On display at the library throughout June 2024.

Artist's Statement:

Sophie Gerry is an illustrator and graphic designer who grew up in Williamstown, MA. She received her MFA in Visual Communication Design from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago in 2023 and her undergraduate degree from Bates College in 2020.


In her studio practice, Sophie works primarily with book forms. She illustrates narratives, utilizes various printing methods, and hand binds artist's books in limited editions. Sophie is most interested in stories about quiet moments, movements, and unlikely companionships shared by humans, animals, plants, and natural phenomena. The aesthetic and atmospheric quality of New England ecosystems — the forests in particular — have been the greatest influence on both the visual language of her work, and its subject matter.

We review applications for our exhibition space on an annual basis, in the fall. A reminder for the application deadline is announced each year in our newsletter, on our Facebook page, on our in-library bulletin board, and on this page.

When reviewing applications, we consider the artistic quality of the work and what value and variety it may contribute to our annual exhibit schedule.
