Artist Leslie Altman, watercolorist, will display her painting in the library's meeting room from March 30th through April 26th. Ms. Altman has exhibited in many local galleries and her work can be found in homes across the country. The display is free and open to the public.

Leslie began painting more than ten years ago at the suggestion of a friend and she immediately fell in love with watercolor. She works in a studio in Yarmouth Port and en plein air. Her landscapes attempt to capture feeling thorugh color and light. Her subjects include Cape Cod scenes, as well as landscapes from travel abroad and closer to home. Works for this exhibit include original paintings and giclee prints.

It matters HOW we think!

Thursday, April 5th from 6:00-8:00


Become a more effective problem-solver! Join David Martin, Ph.D. and Nina Greenwald, Ph.D. for a highly interactive workshop entitled "It matters HOW we think: tackling life's problems through critical and creative thinking." Participants will gain a better understanding of what it means to think critically and creatively, and discuss problems of interest in the workplace, family relationships, and everyday life as a basis for practicing specific problem-finding and problem-solving strategies. 

Feel free to bring examples of problems to share, challenging, persistent, annoying ones, to tackle and tame through new thinking tools for solving problems. Who knows what long awaited significant breakthroughs, insights and understanding may occur!
