WARDSBORO- Ellie Roden, pressed flower artist, is the October artist of the month at the Wardsboro Public Library. She is a longtime resident of southern Vermont and is a retired primary school teacher.

Roden is an avid flower gardener and creates her self-taught art from pressed flowers that can be seen on cards, prints, bookmarks, and framed originals. Only real flowers and plant materials are used. They come from her own garden as well as from the roadsides of Vermont. Her work has been exhibited at shows and in galleries throughout New England and has been featured in two national publications.

Roden’s art and art created by local adult students under her tutelage will be on display at the library throughout October during library hours: Monday and Thursday from 10 am to 1 pm; Tuesday and Wednesday from 2 to 7 pm; and Saturday from 9 am to 1 pm. The library is located at 170 Main Street.
