On the Main Level:
Coming July 2:
Tom Glover’s paintings will be on exhibit on the main level of the Library during the months of July and August. His art is reflective of the seacoast where he lives, places he has traveled over the years and the influence of his teacher John Laurent. Color is a main thrust in Glover’s work and he uses techniques such as glazing and juxtaposing complimentary colors to create intense contrasts and tensions. These are the direct lessons of Laurent and the study of diverse artists such as Matisse, Bonnard, Monet, Porter, Avery, Diebenkorn and others. Please join us on Tuesday, July 9 at 5 PM to hear him talk about his work and to view the exhibit while enjoying light refreshments.
The public is invited to join Tom Glover at York Public Library for the official opening on Tuesday July 9 from 5:00-6:45pm. Refreshments will be served.

A Sculpting Nature; The Ecologically-Inspired Wood Carvings of Catherine, William, & Margaret Lynch
Catherine Lynch (15), her brother William (12), and her sister Margaret (11), are award-winning youth carvers who live in Seacoast Maine. They have been whittling and carving since they were old enough to hold a knife and currently study under the tutelage of local master-wood carver Jim Higgins. The three siblings regularly exhibit their work in wood carving competitions that attract entries from across the country and from abroad. In May of this year at the 49th Annual Ward World Championship Wildfowl Carving Competition and Art Festival, Catherine, William, and Margaret won a total of 13 ribbons. They find inspiration in the natural beauty of their home state, in the work of other carvers, and in the long tradition of American nature art.
