William (Bill) Epps watercolors in Room L-129 during May

At the library's Artist's Date last month retired architect William (Bill) Epps gave a demonstration of how to draw perspective so artists can include buildings in their paintings. He went on to paint an abstract under-painting consisting of pools of colors that would later appear in the finished painting. And then he covered the whole wet painted paper with plastic wrap, so the colors would puddle in the ridges of plastic wrap. This is how he begins his painting process.

This month you can enjoy the finished paintings of this artist who combines the drafted precision of the architect and the random freedom of the master watercolorist, in the library's meeting room, Room L-129

Meet Bubbles!

  After a tense week of voting, a decision has been made.  The children have overwhelmingly decided on Bubbles to be the name of our new Beta Fish!  Name or no name, he has been a big hit with the children. Next time you are in the Library, stop  by the Children's Reference desk and visit with him!
