The Paula A. Lewis Branch Library kicks off the 2020 ArtSpace program featuring artwork by five local residents on display now through March 28.

· Maureen Joyce: A Massachusetts native, Joyce began painting as an outlet while her children grew up. She was mentored by her uncle and well known Rockport, MA artist Martin Ahearn. Since retiring to Port St. Lucie nine years ago, she has won numerous ribbons in watercolor art shows. Maureen’s favorite subjects are water view landscapes.

· Delia Korman: A native New Yorker, Korman won her first awards for her designs and sketches of women’s apparel before she moved to Port St. Lucie more than 20 years ago. She began studying abstract art under Lea Shaw about 10 years ago and she has not been able to put her paint brush down since. She has exhibited her work at the Port St. Lucie Civic Center, Port St. Lucie Botanical Gardens, the PNC Bank and the Morningside Library.

· Floyd Markowitz: Markowitz has been drawing since he was 4 years old. He studied in the Fine Arts Program at Montgomery College and the University of Maryland. Since moving to Florida in 1997, he’s been active in the Port St. Lucie art community as a member of Port St. Lucie Art League. His work has been recognized along the Treasure Coast, including work selected as part the Port St. Lucie beautification program wrapping Utility Boxes along the Cross Town Expressway.

· Fran Sine: Sine enjoys painting people and drawing figures in a variety of settings. With her preferred medium as acrylic, she incorporates architecture and nature into many of her compositions. Her art has been shown in St. Andrews Art Show and the Port St. Lucie Civic Center, and she has received awards for her work.

· Joe Young: A permanent resident of St. Lucie County since March 2005, Young is inspired by the beauty of nature. He wants to give the viewer the feeling of being there. Painting somewhere between realism and impressionism he wants the viewers’ mind to blend the image together and interpret what they see.

The Susan Broom Kilmer Branch Librarys ArtSpace hosts works by Treasure Coast resident Katherine A. Taylor now through March 28.
An accomplished mural artist, illustrator and furniture refinisher, Taylor specializes in creating endearing portraits of frogs, fish, birds, chameleons, bugs and other creatures. The purpose of her work is to provide quality artwork, which will spark a spontaneous smile from the viewer and make the world a little happier.
A native of Southern California, Taylor moved to the Treasure Coast in 2018. Her vision is to be awarded a MacArthur Fellowship and provide free happy artwork to childrens hospitals, non-profit organizations, social service organizations and low-income health clinics across the globe. When discouraged about her work, Taylor thinks of all the people who must have told Jim Henson he would never be successful creating stories with a puppet of a frog and a bossy pig and she is then encouraged to keep creating.
Residents interested in displaying their artwork as part of the Kilmer Librarys non-commercial ArtSpace area should contact Librarian Delphine Newton at 772-462-2787 or newtond@stlucieco.org. This is not a commercial venue. Artwork is displayed for enjoyment purposes only.

Address: 2950 SW Rosser Blvd. in Port St. Lucie.
Category: Exhibits
The Paula A. Lewis Branch Library is pleased to host a touring exhibition of work by Washington Post editorial cartoonist Herb Block focusing on Civil Rights on display now through early March.

Block, famously known as "Herblock,” is among the world’s best known and most admired political cartoonists. Born on Oct. 13, 1909, the native Chicagoan spent his 72-year career fighting against abuses of the powerful.

Sponsored by The Herb Block Foundation, the goal of this exhibition is to promote Herblock's efforts to defend the rights and freedoms of Americans through his political cartoons. Prepared by Curator Harry L. Katz, these exhibitions can be used for teaching or promoting the American topics that reflect Herblock's passions: Education, Democracy, Civil Rights, the Presidency and the Environment (Ever Green). Together all five exhibits present a fascinating history of Herblock's 72 year career, spanning from 1929 to the new millennium.
