WARDSBORO — The Wardsboro Public Library's Artist of the Month exhibition for features works by Alison Williams.

Williams is originally from Cheltenham, England, and grew up in Havant, England, and Campbeltown, Scotland. It was in Scotland where she met her husband, Warren Williams, when he was stationed with the Marine Corps at what was then known as RAF Machrihanish, an air base at the tip of Kintyre.

Williams came to the United States in 1979 with her husband when he was reassigned to Camp Pendelton in California, and other posts later on. In 1997, the couple moved to Wardsboro, and Alison Williams now works at Mount Snow in Dover. They have two children.

She says, “I have always enjoyed crafting.” Williams sews, knits, quilts, paints and makes scrapbooks. “My passion now is scrapbooking and making gift cards. I spend most of my spare time making albums of our family vacations."

“A new project for me is designing three-dimensional paper works of art,” says Williams. “These are framed and have a nostalgic look.” The images are representational, vintage cars, buses and planes, elegant figures, and also butterflies and other natural subjects.

For the exhibition at the Wardsboro Public Library, Williams will be showing 10 works of art, as well as her gift cards. Items will priced for sale from $4.50 for the notecards to $100 and up for larger framed pieces.

The library is located at 170 Main St. The display is open during library hours, Monday, Thursday, and Saturday mornings until 1 p.m., and Tuesday and Wednesday afternoons until 7 p.m. It is closed on holidays and school snow days.
