Join us for a conversation with artist Diane Parker, whose work will be featured in the library’s hallway exhibit from November 15th through December 15th. You may know Diane if you have attended one of the many art classes she has taught at the library. We will hear about Diane’s artistic process, including what inspires her creativity and how she creates her paintings. Diane will then lead the group in a tour of the pieces she selected for the hallway exhibit. There will also be time for attendees to ask questions during this interactive session.
