Del Camp is Artist of the Month at Wardsboro Library

WARDSBORO — Pat Del Camp is the artist of the month at the Wardsboro Public Library, 170 Main St.

Her work, which is called “Enchanted Woodland Habitats,” will be on display during August at the library during library hours, according to a news release.

In her own words, she explains that her “Enchanted Woodland Habitats” are prime real estate for fairies and other folk - imaginary or otherwise. “Some make their home on the craggy coast, others deep in the forest primeval,” she says. “They enjoy frolicking in nooks and crannies, and decorate using objects found in nature. They are friendly, peaceful folk and live harmoniously with all who graciously share their environment.”

Del Camp says she feels “closest to God” when she is outdoors and takes delight in the details: “a delicate intricate pinecone...a gentle feather, are His gifts to me,” she says. Thus she finds it natural to use “found” objects to create works of art.

Del Camp is a native of New Jersey but is a summer resident of West Wardsboro. Her creations come alive in her New Jersey studio or anywhere there is electricity to use a glue gun. She has shown her work at craft fairs throughout New Jersey and won first and second prize awards recently at the Deerfield Valley Fair in Wilmington.
