June Art Show: Mr. Sanuk @ Brewster Ladies' Library
Jun 1 – Jun 30 all-day

For the month of June in 2017, the Brewster Ladies’ Library is pleased to present an art show by Mr. Sanuk, “Paintings and Drawings through the Eyes of a Sculptor.”

Mr. Sanuk has been an artist since 1980. A self-taught sculptor, he began his artistic endeavors using clay and stone, but two years ago, he decided to take up painting. He specializes in abstracts of animals and Eskimos, as he is part Eskimo himself. Mr. Sanuk works flat using line, color, and composition to tell a story. His work has been influenced by Eskimo Line Drawing and the painting class he took with Karen North Wells. He calls his work “on the job training,” and his mission is to make people smile through his art and his life.

The public is invited to a reception at the Library on Saturday, June 10, 2017 from 2 – 4 p.m.

This exhibit is sponsored by the Brewster Ladies’ Library.  Please call the Library at (508) 896-3913 before coming, due to the exhibition room sometimes being in use for a program and not open for viewing.

Evening Book Group – Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil @ Brewster Ladies' Library
Jun 29 @ 6:30 pm – 7:30 pm

We will be discussing Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil by John Berendt.  “It’s difficult to categorize this book. On one level, it is a travelog, recounting former New York magazine editor Berendt’s eight years in Savannah, Georgia, that beautifully preserved hothouse of the South where eccentric characters like black drag queen Lady Chablis and charming con man Joe Odom blossom in rich profusion. It is also a true crime tale, the saga of antiques dealer Jim Williams whose 1981 shooting of his sometime lover Danny Hansford in the historic Mercer House obsesses Savannah denizens.” – Booklist.  Free and open to all!
