Ongoing During Library hours Art in the Library. We are excited to have Jaye Orgera as our Featured Artist for the month of May. Jaye moved with her two daughters to Steuben in 1996 and rented an office in Ellsworth. She met Sarah Morton of Union River Gallery and Sarah, Rosemary Levin and Cathy Brann got her started on her artist journey. Jaye started taking lessons at adult ed with Philip Frey and Rebekah Raye, who are well known Maine artists. When Orgera retired after an illness, she spent winters in Santa Fe with her daughters and took many classes at the amazing Santa Fe Community College and the very amazing Santa Fe Art Institute. Her work is a mix of watercolor, gouache, Cray-Pas, watercolor crayon (her favorite), acrylic and printmaking. Jaye loves landscapes, but says “usually my angst is too high for that.” Mostly she scribbles, usually is surprised by what comes out and is not bored yet. Jaye says “I thank my teachers and fellow artists who inspire me and Mary Evelyn who taught me how to frame for myself. I love color and Maine has wonderful light.” Her show is available for viewing during library hours.
May 3rd 4:30 pm Concert and Dinner Benefit hosted by Eagle Hill Institute. The Evening will begin with a  wine and cheese social time starting at 4:30, followed by the concert at 5:30 featuring Brian Stewart and Leonore Hildebrandt. As a folk duo with a jazzy vibe, Leonore and Brian write, arrange, and play their own songs. They have performed over many years and recorded several albums. Brian plays piano and guitar, Leonore plays percussion and guitar, and they both sing. Their song lyrics are thoughtful and fun. Both live with their families in Harrington, where they built their own houses and grow lovely gardens.  Following the concert, an elegant buffet style meal will take place in the Eagle Hill dining room with two entree choices - meat and vegetarian. The ticket price for the evening is $40 per person (with an option to make an additional donation) and all proceeds will go to the library/community center. Reservations are required and can be made by contacting Eagle Hill at https://eaglehill.us/programs/music/steuben-library. It should be a delightful evening and a wonderful way to support the library.
