Willey was the editor of a small newspaper in New Bedford, Massachusetts, who developed a keen interest in lichens. He visited Grand Manan in 1879 and made collections that are now dispersed among several herbaria in the USA. A number of these specimens were cited in the first published catalogue of North American lichens. They include some rare or otherwise interesting species that are suggestive of the contemporary nature of the forests on the island, and of changes that have occurred subsequently.

The group will meet each Wednesday evening from 7:00 to 9:00 pm on the first floor of the Arts Center. Participants in the two hour weekly workshop will approach drawing the figure through a series of short exercises that lead to an hour long study, using the drawing medium of their choice. Learning to draw the figure has long been the foundation of learning how to draw. Through history it has been both an academic exercise and a demonstration of mastery. The Arts Center's emphasis is to offer a learning experience for beginners, and for more experienced artists an opportunity to hone their drawing skills. Instruction is offered when requested. Students and artists may sign up for four weeks at a time; however drop-ins are also welcome. For information about fees or other questions, please call or e-mail Joyce Weber at (207) 853-2358 or jpweber@roadrunner.com.
