CORNWALL — There are many art sales in the Northwest Corner, but most involve new work by local or regional artists. 

The Cornwall Library takes a slightly different approach with its annual Labor Day Weekend Art Sale, which is in its third year and will open with a reception on Friday, Aug. 23, from 5 to 8 p.m. at the library. 

At this sale, which has grown in size and popularity, library patrons and other area residents donate works of art from their own homes, to be resold to benefit the library.
