Ballet and photography at the North Plains Library

April is an arts-filled month at North Plains!

On Saturday, April 13th at 1:00 pm, the Portland Ballet will be offering a free mini-performance and sample ballet lessons for kids in Kindergarten through 6th Grade. This will be taking place at the Jessie Mays Community Hall.

The Portland Ballet, a training ground for professional ballet artists, provides performance experience for pre-professional dancers and emerging choreographers and promotes ballet appreciation in the community through outreach and education. 

In addition, landscape and portrait photographer Tom Jacquemin of Hillsboro will be exhibiting his work at the library from April 11 through May 31. A reception will be held in his honor on Friday, April 19 at 6 p.m. at the library, and the public is invited to attend this free event.

All of Jacquemin’s photographs will be available for purchase and can be made in additional sizes.  He also sells his photographs at the Cedar Mill Farmers’ Market most Saturdays.
