June Artist~ Elizabeth Kelly Walker

Reception: Thursday, June 7th from 5:00-7:00pm


The paintings of local artist Elizabeth Kelly Walker will be on display in the library's meeting room throughout the month of June. All are welcome to explore and enjoy the exhibit. Please join the artist for a reception, open to the public, on Thursday, June 7th from 5-7.  

A note from the artist: "As an artist, I consider the relationships between individuals, be they humans or other creatures. I sometimes explore acts of nurturing which can be mistakenly perceived as a violation. I also channel celebratory affirmations of nature. These images evolve from visual thoughts and feelings which cannot be totally communicated verbally. That is why I paint."

Many of the fruits and vegetables we eat require pollination. Pollinators such as honeybees are essential for much of what we grow and eat. Unfortunately, honeybee populations, both locally and nationally, have been suffering catastrophic losses.

Join Larry Dapsis, Entomologist with the Cape Cod Cooperative Extension, to review honeybee biology and the factors responsible for the current problems they are facing. Also learn about the state of wild pollinators like bumble bees and things that residents can do to help them.
