ACBD: Artist Curated Book Display

November 2018

Ever wonder what inspires and motivates an artist to create? The artist curated book display is an ongoing series at the Portsmouth Public Library in which local artists are invited to exhibit their work alongside a display of ten library items that inspire it. The ACBD is an opportunity for patrons to be introduced to the work of local artists and be reminded that public libraries are a wonderful resource for inspiration.

This month’s artist, Maya Critchfield, is a fiber artist and educator living and working in Midcoast Maine. She works with antique clothing, textiles and tools to explore history, storytelling, and concepts of home. To find out more, visit
