Thanks to the generosity of acclaimed West Chester artist John Suplee, we are pleased to offer for sale signed and numbered 24″ by 18″ prints of the “The Reading Room,” depicting West Chester Public Library’s beloved and historic main floor. Created and donated by the artist to support our 2018 Building Our Future Annual Appeal, the original painting was awarded to the winner of a drawing for major donors to the campaign. The first 50 prints sold will come with a coupon for 15% off framing at Visual Expansion Gallery, 132 N. High St., West Chester. Click here to purchase.
