Wallingford resident Gloria Paproski Horbaty brings her talents in the beautiful and ancient art of pysanky to the town's Public Library on March 7.

Horbaty's presentation at 7 p.m. will explore the history, folklore and myths surrounding this traditional art form and include an explanation of the symbols used to decorate eggs in the wax resist technique. A demonstration on how to create a pysanka utilizing the traditional equipment of kistka, beeswax and dyes will also be featured.
