Fall Brown Bags

Presented by the Josephy Library for Western History & Culture


Tuesday, November 21 – Noon – The Josephy Center has hosted a series of noon Brown Bag programs about housing in Wallowa County over the past two months. On Tuesday, November 21, we pick up the theme with a program on Home Energy Efficiency. Caryn Appler and Susan Badger-Jones from Energy Trust of Oregon will be joined by Jared Hillock, who has guided solar installations at many home and business properties over the past several years, for the program. They will discuss national trends in energy efficient residential construction and explain the science behind the components that make a more energy efficient home.

If you plan to build or buy in the next 18 months, remember that  purchasing or building an energy efficient home is more than just saving money on your utility bill. It is about having a higher quality, better performing home that is more comfortable for you and your family. And, if you are already in your home, explore making it more efficient.

Tuesday, November 28 – Noon – Aspen Grove Gallery owner, Mark Kortnik of Joseph, will speak on the topic of fine art, his career as an artist, and framing art. Aspen Grove Gallery was established in Joseph more than 27 years ago with Mark and Carol now being the longest represented resident artists on Main Street. We invite you to visit and view their original paintings , Giclee’ prints and bronzes. The gallery also represents many other professional regional artists with raku pottery, hand blown glass, hand made basketry, jewelry, & photography.

The gallery is honored to be the exclusive Eastern Oregon print dealer for the nationally recognized Greenwich Workshop artist prints.
