Gallery in the Loft
The Wagnalls-Jones family appreciated visual arts and included in the Wagnalls Memorial a room in the Tower  dedicated to the art of artist, John Ward Dunsmore. In keeping with that appreciate and the desire to for    people of Lithopolis and Bloom Township to have opportunities to experience art, the Wagnalls Memorial Foundation has designed a gallery on the second floor above the library, fondly known as the Loft. 

The Wagnalls Memorial Foundation appreciates Julian Cennamo, a local artist, who has volunteered his time to curate our gallery. Art shows and exhibits will change every six to eight weeks typically. Shows and exhibits can be enjoyed during normal library hours. Artists who sell their works graciously offer commissions to the Wagnalls Memorial supporting our mission.


Our Current Art Exhibit:

May 4-June 6, 2022

Julian Cennamo is a contemporary landscape painter and collage artist.
Recent paintings such as Sun Setting over Sunflower Field are large bursts of color and light inspired by impressionist and expressionist painters. And recent collages such as Red Barn are similar landscapes, although they are more contemporary and based on play and parody.
