2. Starting July 1

“The Joy They Give,” a visual and tactile celebration of our canine, feline, bovine, equine and porcine friends, will be on display in the gallery at Kirk-Bear Canyon Library, 8959 E. Tanque Verde Road, July 1-July 31. Fiber artist Ashley Weymouth has created a series of animal images using wool from sheep, alpaca and goat. As an animal-welfare advocate, Ashley uses recycled wool for her canvases and purchases dyed wool roving from farms that participate in humane animal practices. The subjects of her portraits are rescues — shelter cats and dogs that ended up with their forever families and donkeys, pigs and a goat that presently reside in animal sanctuaries. The two pig portraits in the exhibit are renditions of residents at Ironwood Pig Sanctuary, a home to almost 600 surrendered potbellied pigs. Half of the sale of those two pieces will be donated to Ironwood. View the exhibit during library hours: 10 a.m.-8 p.m., Monday-Thursday; 10 a.m.-5 p.m., Friday; 9 a.m.-5 p.m., Saturday; 1-5 p.m., Sunday. For more information, call the library at 594-5275.

3. July 2
