Egg Harbor City may be the smallest branch in the Atlantic County Library System but we have a big heart for our community and our local talent. Currently, we are honored to showcase the beautiful and unique art work of Tom Peterson and Ann Fox. Both are long time patrons and Egg Harbor City residents who have generously donated pieces for exhibit.
Service station owner Tom Peterson imaginatively uses car parts and scrap metal as well as everyday metal objects for his sculptures.
Tom’s Lady Liberty is fashioned with forks, nuts, bolts, washers, screws and even a rivet from the Ben Franklin Bridge. For Magic Tree House, car exhaust shields, bicycle chains, muffler clamps, and other scrap metals come together to create magical quality.
When not focused on her art, Ann Fox enjoys sewing, baking (often treating the Egg Harbor City book club), and walking around her working Cranberry Farm. Ann's pencil drawing illustrates her appreciation for detail as well as libraries and the pursuit of knowledge through reading.
We invite you to come by to peruse their art and our shelves.
