Visit the library this month to view watercolors by local artist Rogan Taylor (Artist Bio).

Rogan Taylor started painting with watercolors in 1995 while living in his homeland of Zimbabwe, a hobby that very quickly became a passion. His favorite subjects are landscape, wildlife, and historical interest. In 2007, he emigrated with his family to Colorado, and then in 2014 moved to Central Maine.

Meet the artist and hear about his life and work at our Artist Talk on Tuesday, December 11 at 5:30 p.m.

Join us at our first meeting on Friday, December 7 at 3:00 pm to help plan the future of the group.

Note: Next meeting: Friday, January 4 at 3:30 pm
