The spring series of presentations and concerts will begin Wednesday, April 16, at 7 p.m. at Lincolnville Community Library, 208 Main St./routes 173/52 in Lincolnville Center.

Artist Sara Gagan of Hope will be the guest speaker. Originally from Poughkeepsie, N.Y., she graduated from Connecticut College, attended Hartford Art School and worked and raised her family in the Hartford area. Always with a passion for drawing and painting and never with the time to pursue it, Gargan retired from a career in graphic design last summer, found her way to the Midcoast and has since focused her energies on a series of nine portraits of women. The subjects range in age from 12 to 92, representing various stages of life.

Headed by Mike McFarland (Isleboro’s favorite postman), The Postman Cometh presents new looks at old favorites. From Hank Williams to Little Feat to the Rolling Stones, the bandmembers like to play the tunes they grew up with, with the occasional standard thrown in as well. Mcfarland leads the way on guitar and vocals, supported by son Max on his 11-string electric bass and Bill Hahn on keyboards. Mcfarland has been playing with bands in the area since the days of the 10-4 Diner; Max is outstanding, both on his electric bass and playing jazz on a standup; and Hahn misspent much of his youth on classical training.

Tickets are $10, available in advance by calling Rosey Gerry at 975-5432.
