Published 3:45 am Sunday, April 17, 2022

Award-winning yarn artist and author Annie Greene will speak at the annual meeting of Friends of LaGrange Memorial Library on Thursday at Del’avant Event Center at 141 Main St, according to a press release from FLML.

The event, which is free and open to the public, begins with a short business meeting at 6:15 p.m., followed by Greene’s talk. A book signing and reception will follow.

Greene is a graduate of Albany State University and has an M.A. in art education from New York University.

Although Greene is best known for her yarn art, she is also a painter, author and craftsman.

She worked as an art teacher for many years on all levels, from elementary grades to the college level. Most of her time was spent with high school students.

Since retiring from teaching, Greene is still invited to schools, clubs and organizations to set up miniexhibits, teach art classes and demonstrate her yarn art technique. She originally painted in oils and acrylics, but when she started creating yarn paintings, invitations to art shows greatly increased.
