Learn about collaging and silk-screening from local artist, musician and library technician, Penelope Houston.
In conjunction with the exhibit “Put a Librarian On It”, displayed on the lower level of the Main, we are pleased to present this exciting program on Thursday, April 5th from 6-7:30. Penelope will be available for a question and answer session after the demonstration and participants will take home their own unique postcard.
Penelope Houston is well known as the lead singer of the Avengers, a solo musician and is also a visual artist.
