January Featured Artist

 Image result for viola holmgren ART
Throughout the month of January enjoy the artwork of Viola Holmgren, which will be on display in The Benjamin and Ruth Muse Meeting Room during most of the library’s open hours.

Viola Holmgren paints in oils and creates mixed media imagery through her oil paintings and photography. She is especially drawn to water and loves painting seascapes. Her art instruction is ongoing through local artists and art organizations right here on Cape Cod and previously in Worcester, Massachusetts, and St. Augustine, Florida.

She has a corporate and business owner background and recently led a team in the establishment of “Artists’ Paintbox,” a South Yarmouth Art Gallery for over 30 Yarmouth Art Guild artists. Her work has been exhibited and sold at events at the Cultural Center of Cape Cod, through the Yarmouth Art Guild, the HyArts Cultural District of Hyannis and other area businesses.

Viola earned her Bachelor of Science degree in Communication and Journalism from Suffolk University in 2007 and graduated Summa Cum Laude. A resident of the Cape for 20 years now, Viola says she is fortunate to live on Cape Cod and loves living here because her canvas is never empty.

Check out her website at viola-holmgren.pixels.com or follow her on Facebook facebook.com/violasfineart.
 

**All of Viola's artwork on exhibit in the library is for sale. To purchase, contact Viola at 508.776.4321 or send her an email to violaholmgren@gmail.com. Cash, checks and credit cards are accepted.

Reflections from the Pacific Coast Trail: How Lessons Learned from One Woman’s Journey Apply to Us All

Saturday, February 27 at 12:00 pm

Come meet thru-hiker Wendy Johnston. From April to September of 2013, Wendy Johnston backpacked the entire 2,700 mile long Pacific Crest Trail from the US/Mexican Border to the US/Canadian border through California, Oregon, and Washington. Join Wendy for a compelling talk that focuses on the reasons she hikes long trails, some of the adversity she has overcome (both in life and on the trail), and the universal lessons that she has learned on her long hikes. She will also show a slideshow of photos taken along her PCT hike. A question and answer session will follow. It is Wendy’s hope that you will leave inspired and encouraged to follow your own dreams (hiking-related or not)!

Know Your Salt Marsh

Saturday, January 30 at 1:00 pm

Come join Ian Ives, director of the Long Pasture Wildlife Sanctuary in Barnstable, MA, as he introduces our audience to Cape Cod’s salt marshes.
Salt marshes are some of the most biologically rich communities in North America and are nurseries for many of Cape Cod’s fish and shellfish. Salt marshes are also invaluable for their pollution prevention and storm and flood reduction. With increasing coastal development, many of Cape Cod’s salt marshes have become degraded. Learn more about these rich habitats, the creatures within them, and how to help protect them.
