Andrew Painter’s Art Show | 22/02/2019 - 19/03/2019 | 6:00 - 7:30

Andrew Painter's Art Show

The month-long show featuring paintings by Andrew Painter opens on Friday, February 22nd from 6 to 7:30 pm, and continues until March 19th. The exhibition is free and open to the public! Join us on opening night for refreshments and meet the artist!

Andrew Painter is a well-traveled, British painter who moved to Angers in 1988. His colorful, lively work is inspired by anything and everything in the world around him. He enjoys, above all, seeing people interpret his work in different ways. His paintings seem to take on a life of their own and his recent work reflects on both “change” and “difference”.

Stop by the library during opening hours to see his work, from February 22nd to March 19th. For more information about the artist click here.

Knit and Natter | 01/03/2019 | 10:00 - 11:00

Knit and Natter

Come along and bring your knitting,

Have a natter while you’re sitting,

Or learn to knit with wool provided,

Needles loaned and stitches guided.

Knitted garments are très chic,

So be in vogue and start this week.

Knit and Natter is a free activity, open to all library members. No need to reserve, just come and enjoy! If anyone has some extra wool please bring it in. The Knitting group has a project knitting twiddle muffs and are looking for bits and pieces of washable wool.
