A Painting by Renoir of Monet painting in his garden, 1873

A Painting by Renoir of Monet painting in his garden.

Calling area painters, poets, musicians, artists and story-tellers of all types, from beginner to pro! Don’t let the summer get away from you too quickly. Enjoy some art and light refreshments with like-minded friends in the Priestley-Forsyth Memorial Library Garden once again!

Tuesday  evening, July 21st at 7:00, weather permitting, artist, and Cross Keys Poetry member Faith Saxton Gallo will be setting up her easel in the library garden for the second time this summer.

If you paint, draw, play an instrument, tell stories, write fiction, or compose poems–even if you just enjoy flowers and fine company in the shade, we invite you to join us. Artists can open their notebooks and sketchbooks, or set up their easels along with us. We’d love it if you wanted to tap out a rhythm on your bongos, or practice some chords on your guitar! Consider it a relaxed community rehearsal, just artists doing what they love to do in the beautiful atmosphere of our Library Garden.

Perhaps you’ve seen one of Faith’s recent exhibitions, or were fortunate enough to take a watercolor class with her here at the library. In any case, this event is completely casual, and non-poets and the artistically challenged are encouraged to attend, enjoy a cool beverage, and wind down a summer day with us.

Again, that’s Tuesday, July 21st, starting at 7:00 pm, maybe a bit earlier, to make the most of the daylight.


*Note: In case of inclement weather, the function will move inside the library.
