Stafford Creations Art Display at Bristol Public Library

During the month of April, Bristol Public Library,  5 High Street, in Bristol, is hosting an exhibit of artworks and handcrafted goods by Bristol natives Bob and Cindy Stafford.  Bob and Cindy, who have been creating their art for over thirty years, are the  co-owners  of Stafford Creations.  Inspired mostly by nature, Bob gathers and dries his own wood for carving, often after storms, and uses any variety nature may give him. He uses wood from pine, to fruit woods, to hardwoods, while Cindy is the painter of their creations and of her own works as well..She uses Acrylics for woodcarvings and gouache and watercolor for her own  paintings. The display at Bristol Public Library features the both carved pieces and watercolor and is built around the theme of Spring.  for more information about the display, visit the Bristol Public Library or call: (860) 584-7787 x 2023.  For more information about Stafford Creations, contact Cindy at
