Dallas Library features Downs

Dallas Public Library’s artist of the month for September is Craig Downs.

The Dallas-area artist’s signature bold and creative art on canvas and in murals is well-known throughout the United States, Canada, and Mexico. His paintings tell stories from the many places he’s traveled, worked, and lived.

Downs designed wine labels for Benedetto Vineyards in Dallas and created community murals such as the colorful Dallas-themed community mural on the Willamette Valley Fiber building.

The library will be hosting Craig in an artist meet-and-greet on Monday form 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. All social distancing and mask rules apply during the meet and greet. Stop in the library any time this month to view his artwork.
