misc_none Art Exhibit: Chinese Folk Art by Xiang Jin Remind Me about this Event   Tell a Friend
   

Xiang Jin, originally an established artist in China and now a Cheshire resident will have her work featured in an art exhibit in the Mary Baldwin room of the Cheshire Public Library during the month of September.  Xiang, an expert in painting, paper-cut and embroidery, has eleven pieces of art published in the Encyclopedia Collection of China Contemporary Art.  She is the author of  Chinese Meticulous Figure (Portrait) Painting Techniques and has contributed significantly to Chinese Folk Art with her artistic folk art embroidery and paper-cut. Xiang’s use of color and composition across all media is exquisite.   The exhibit at the library will feature many of her embroideries, which appear three-dimensional in their detail.

Environmentally conscious, Xiang Jin has also made original contributions to “Traditional Chinese Meticulous Painting with Heavy Colors” by inventing an incredible and ingenious process to use metal oxides for pigments, thereby helping to preserve mineral ores.

Because of these contributions, Xiang has been asked to hold a critical role in the mission of safeguarding and promoting Chinese folk art.  Xiang Jin says her mission is to introduce traditional Chinese arts to the world. 

Xiang and her family hope that you will have a chance to visit the exhibit from September 3- 30 .  The public is invited to a reception on Saturday, September 13 from 1-3pm.

Up Periscope – 1959 – 112 minutes

A Navy commando, Lt. (jg) Ken Braden (James Garner), is sent on a secret mission to photograph a Japaneses code book. He's to be taken there aboard a submarine commanded by Paul Stevenson and then return without the Japanese knowing they have ever been there. Stevenson is a by-the-book captain who follows his operational orders to the letter. That approach had led to the death of a member of his crew on his last mission, and he's lost the respect and support of his crew. Braden and Stevenson don't quite hit it off at first but the eventually develop a respect for one another. Please join us.

Frankenweenie (2012). 
From Disney and creative genius Tim Burton (ALICE IN WONDERLAND; THE NIGHTMARE BEFORE CHRISTMAS) comes the hilarious and offbeat FRANKENWEENIE, a heartwarming tale about a boy and his dog. After unexpectedly losing his beloved dog Sparky, young Victor harnesses the power of science to bring his best friend back to life -- with just a few minor adjustments. He tries to hide his home-sewn creation, but when Sparky gets out, Victor's fellow students, teachers and the entire town learn that getting a new "leash on life" can be monstrous.

Running Time 1 hour, 27 minutes.  Rated PG.

    Contact:      bbasel@cheshirelibrary.org
   

Colonial Connecticut was witness to several witchcraft trials.  Though not as notorious as the infamous Salem witch trials, Connecticut, nonetheless, had its share.  Join Richard Tomlinson, author of Witchcraft Prosecution : Chasing the Devil in Connecticut as he discusses the fears that drove some citizens to seek out and punish accused witches that lived in their community.  Tomlinson will explore the witchcraft trials in 1600s Connecticut and highlight three major trials in Connecticut history: the Hartford Witch Panic of 1662-63; the landmark prosecution of Katherine Harrison of Wethersfield; and the trial of Mercy Disbrow, the last woman convicted of witchcraft in Connecticut, a case that was contemporary with Salem.

Richard Tomlinson is a founder of the Connecticut Society of Genealogists, Inc. and serves on its Board of Governors, and is a trustee of the Connecticut Historical Society.  Copies of Tomlinson’s book will be available for purchase.

Come enjoy some great box office kids' movies with Fab Film Saturdays at Cheshire Public Library! 

Muppets Most Wanted (2014). 
There's plenty of fun for the whole family as Kermit the Frog, Miss Piggy, Animal and the entire Muppets gang head out on a world tour. But mayhem follows the Muppets, as they find themselves unwittingly entangled in an international crime caper. Now Kermit is behind bars at the mercy of prison warden Nadya (Tina Fey), and the World's Number One Criminal, Constantine -- a dead ringer for Kermit -- has taken his place. As Constantine and his dastardly sidekick Dominic (Ricky Gervais) plot the robbery of the century, they are pursued by Sam Eagle and Interpol agent Jean Pierre Napoleon (Ty Burrell). Will Constantine get away with his nefarious scheme? Will Kermit escape in time to save the day? Packed with dozens of guest cameos and some great new songs, Disney's MUPPETS MOST WANTED is the most hilarious, most wanted Muppet movie ever!

Running Time 1 hour, 47 minutes.  Rated PG.

NO REGISTRATION REQUIRED
Feel free to bring your own snacks!
