Matt Patterson.jpg

Matt grew up in New Ipswich. His father was a biology teacher and early on he was exposed to all types of animals. As far back as he can remember he has always had the same two interests, wildlife and art. He loves the outdoors and in his free time he was either out fishing, searching for turtles and snakes, or he was painting. Today things haven’t changed much. He is a professional artist and his work reflects his love for nature.

Matt has completed a variety of work ranging from scientific and book illustration to trompe l’oeil murals and wood carving. In 2010, his book titled Freshwater Fish of the Northeast won the National Outdoor Book Awards Design and Artistic Merit category.

His book on Reptiles and Amphibians, titled The Snake and the Salamander Reptiles and Amphibians from Maine to Virginia, was just released.

This program is sponsored by the Stearns-Burton Lecture Committee.

Although the event is free, a donation to St. Vincent dePaul’s Food Pantry in Greenville is always welcome.

Mindfulness Meditation Discussion

with Maria Hanley of Willow Tree Yoga

Thursday, March 22nd, 7pm

Do you sometimes feel that you are overrun with stress, worry, or fear?  Have you ever thought that you would like to become more grounded, centered, and calm in your daily life but weren’t sure how to do it?  It is a challenge to quiet the thoughts in our minds and change the negative messages that we often tell ourselves.  There is a way!

Mindfulness meditation is a tool that has been used for thousands of years.  Come join us at the New Ipswich Library as Maria Hanley of Willow Tree Yoga leads an interactive discussion exploring mindfulness meditation, and for those that are interested, we will end with a 5-10 minute guided relaxation/meditation.  You will also learn simple techniques that you can take home to try in the quiet of your own home.

The event is free, but a donation to the St. Vincent de Paul food pantry in Greenville is appreciated.
