An accomplished musician, Sherri Trometter has been playing the piano since age six, but just began playing the harp in 2003. Since then her hobby has turned into a wonderful second job, as she plays with bands and orchestras, for weddings, funerals, banquets, and even Girl Scout camps. She began to teach harp lessons in 2007. Trometter belongs to the Harrisburg Harp Orchestra and the Penn Creek Harp Circle. In 2009, Trometter released her first CD of Christmas music of her own arrangements. She lives near Sunbury with her husband, mother-in-law, three dogs and a cat.
Linda Billet is a glass artisan working out of her Central PA studio. Billet began her craft at Harrisburg Area Community College with a year of glass blowing and continues with fusing workshops and classes, however, her craftsmanship is mainly self-taught. She draws inspiration from previous experience in fabric and her passion for nature. A recurring theme is water, which she feels is an excuse to work in her favorite color, blue. When asked for an artist’s statement, Billet agrees with her grandmother who always told her, “Matching is boring.” Her work will be on display at The Library throughout October.
