MAINE ARTIST WADE ZAHARES – SEPTEMBER 14 @ 2:00 PM

September 14 @ 2:00 PM - 3:30 PM

THE PATSY BRAY MAHONEY LECTURE SERIES PRESENTS

We are so excited to invite the very talented Maine Artist Wade Zahares to Graves Library on Saturday, September 14 at 2 PM.

Wade works exclusively in pastels; he is drawn to the intimacy of the chalk and the ease with which he can blend colors. The magic happens in his studio, a converted shed just off his main house. The studio, equipped with 15-foot ceilings and a house gutter to catch all the pastel dust, is set on 5 1/2 acres of farmland in Lyman, Maine, just a few miles from the Kennebunk farm on which he grew up. When Wade needs a break, he goes for a drive to soak up the New England landscape—his biggest inspiration—or tends to his flowers, gardens, and fruit trees. Then he returns to his studio, refreshed and ready to make more magic.

Wade will be here to talk about his work and his passion and demonstrate how he goes about his craft.

Light refreshments will be provided by the Graves Library Snack Team. Please call the Library for more information on this event and the rest of the series (967-2778).

Parking is available along Maine Street, the North Street Fire Station Parking Lot, and Consolidated School (Route 9).

The Graves Library is located at 18 Maine Street, Kennebunkport, Maine. Please enter through the white door in the Parking Lot.
