Artist Glen Hansen presents and discusses the more than three dozen drawings and paintings that make up his show opening June 27 in the Library’s Guldner Gallery. Subjects range from historic turn-of-the-century structures to the modern TWA Building and the iconic Town Topic Hamburgers.

A teacher at the School of Visual Arts in New York City, Hansen early on became fascinated by the details of ornate Victorian houses. Among his works are many focusing on the architecture of Prague, Paris, and Venice.

During the public reception preceding the event, Barbara Rosene – accompanied by pianist Bram Wijnands and guitarist Joe Lisnicia – will perform Jazz selections from the 1920s and ‘30s.
