The Evelyn Meador Library, a Harris County Public Library, is pleased to announce a reception for local artist Gwendolyn Brown-Bailey on Monday, June 17 at 6 pm in the library’s meeting room.  A curated selection of her beautiful seafaring-inspired water colors are on display in the meeting room.  Many of the pieces are multimedia, featuring images of lighthouses and ships as well as other marine scenery superimposed on old navigation charts.  Her artwork reflects a love of painting married with a life-long passion for the sea.

Mr. Fletcher rendered a fine performance of classical guitar music for us this past Tuesday.  He shared music from all across the guitar repertoire, playing compositions by Bach, Albeniz, Paganini, Ravel, Myers and others.

We had a great turnout for the concert and everyone was enthusiastic and appreciative.


Thanks to our Friends Board for making this concert available to the public, and thanks to Mr. Fletcher for sharing your love of the guitar with us!
