Jay Psaros in Concert
Sunday, January 13, 4-5PM at the Amherst Town Library
AMHERST – The Amherst Town Library is excited to welcome Boston based singer/songwriter Jay Psaros to kick off the four-part winter concert series at the library on Sunday, January 13, 2019 4:00-5:00PM.
Jay Psaros writes songs. In fact, he writes lots of songs. Psaros is currently celebrating the release of his fourth studio release, a self-titled collection of ten songs ranging from mellow crooners to roots rockers. Psaros has developed a healthy career with the belief that music, like any art, must be created through a lifestyle dedicated to the craft in order for the art and artist to reach their full potential. To Psaros, it is an ongoing experience with a long road behind and a longer road ahead. Psaros has been called a ‘storyteller of precision,’ a ‘master guitar player,’ and a musical ‘painter of beautiful, rolling images.’ Over the past several years, Jay has completely immersed himself in the music industry. Jay has toured the country playing shows for audiences big and small. His musical versatility has allowed him to share the stage with a variety of international acts such as Eddie Money, Rick Springfield, The Mavericks, Donovan Frankenreiter, Boz Scaggs, Daughtry, The Los Lonely Boys, Tower of Power, The Little River Band, Ziggy Marley, The Original Wailers, Lisa Loeb, Third Eye Blind, Nellie McKay, Three Dog Night, Rusted Root, Anders Osborne, Peter Cetera and many more.
The winter concert series, which is generously sponsored by the Friends of the Library, will continue on Sunday, February 3 with “Craft Ensemble: Chamber Music Among Friends”.

Toy Land Revisited at Amherst Town Library
AMHERST – The Friends of the Amherst Town Library is pleased to welcome back William Cheever Turner and his incredible oil paintings on display for the month of December and the first part of January. Bill paints in the narrative realism genre and for this exhibit will have a focus of his Vintage Toys paintings. He will also be displaying some of his inspired toys with his paintings. The exhibit will be from December 1 to January 15.
Although distressed vintage vehicle compositions were his first love, Bill’s focus has changed to toys from the 50’s to the 80’s eras which show wear from use. Whether it be a Teddy bear, pull toy, or mechanical robot they illicit a special characteristic--they inspire a child’s imagination, as well as his own. Bill depicts these magical toys in unusual settings giving them a life of their own. It is a joy for Bill to create a story on canvas, and especially meaningful when someone relates to his work. Bill hopes you enjoy his work as much as he enjoys creating it.
All are welcome to stop in the Amherst Town Library to view these amazing works. No sign up required to attend the artist reception Sunday December 9 from 2 to 4pm. Visit Bill’s website, turnwoodfineart.com, to view archived works as well as paintings for sale and more information. Feel free to contact Bill personally by phone (603-673-3782) or e-mail through his website.
