Debbie Wells of Artful Circle and Chair of the Art League of Long Island in Dix Hills (www.artleagueli.org) presents a series of art lectures at the Art League of Long Island in support of their new art reference library. The 2016 series, “Dab of Paint” has covered everything from Art History 101 to “How Artists Capture Their Surroundings”, “American Female Artists” and more.

All information in the presentations are drawn from the comprehensive book collection at the Art League and is comprised of nearly two thousand high quality books and counting – mostly obtained from a generous donation from the late Lorraine Graves Grace.
