Great paintings challenge us to understand them, to penetrate their mysteries, and to appreciate their riches. But within the vast history of art, there exist only a small number of paintings that transcend the traditional role of art to become cultural signifiers—works that allow us to comprehend more deeply the world and our place within it.

This video lecture series will take place over 8 weeks; come for all 8 pieces or just choose your favorite artist's portion! 

August 10: Giotto, Duccio, Van Eyck...

August 17: Botticelli, Bellini, Durer, Da Vinci, Raphael...

August 24: Michelangelo, Grunewald, Titian, El Greco, Bruegel, Carravagio...

August 31: Rubens, Vermeer, Velazquez, Rembrandt, Hals, La Tour...

Each class starts in a circle with a warm-up and gross-motor skills around the room. The dance teacher, Ms Lisa Oster, uses dance terms throughout the class (plié, releve, passé, chasse). She also incorporates a bit of yoga in the warm up. Then each class features a story with movement and accompanying music. Class ends with Freeze dance into a cool down." Parents stay in the room, but must keep conversations to minimum. Parents may join in if it helps their child but in general the kids participate on their own.
 
REGISTER ONLY THE CHILD YOU WILL BE BRINGING and Click "Add Guest" for each additional child. (We don't want too many bodies taking up all the dance floor space!)

Presented by Fred Dixon, this art lecture will examine what makes Norman Rockwell and Andrew Wyeth two artists beloved by the public, but often attacked by the critics. Hear how Rockwell painted, with a sense of whimsy, the qualities one would like to see society return to. Wyeth was accused of being a hopelessly sentimental painter of rural scenes, but Fred Dixon will argue that the critics never completely understood his work. Often he takes you beneath the surface of realism and doesn’t spell it out for us.

Fred and his wife Martha were long term docents at the Barnes Foundation. They have collected art for 35 years and have traveled to many of the most important museums in the U.S. and Europe and cathedrals in Italy to view Renaissance and Baroque art. Fred’s book “700 years of Art History : Pre-Renaissance to Modernism” will be available at  this event at a discounted price of $35.

    Contact: Mary Tobin   610-583-0593   reference@ridleylibrary.org
   
The term “fake news” may be new, but the phenomenon has been around for a long time. From 19th century broadsheets to the emergence of cable television and internet, the American media industry has been honing a particular approach to reporting "the news" that puts political, economic, and social ends on par with speaking truthfully. But what exactly is “fake news” and why is it such a big deal? After all, isn’t everyone entitled to express their opinion? Isn't everyone working an angle?
 
In this talk, Dr. Jim Caccamo will explore the different media practices that we now refer to together as “fake news,” and suggest that if we want to see a world that supports flourishing, rather than just winning, we need to find, support and produce media that expresses the truth.

Interested participants will be introduced to “Tai Chi Chih©”, a moving meditation. It is easy to learn, and doesn’t require a particular level of physical fitness or coordination.  Consisting of 19 movements and one pose, TCC attracts  the widest audience because even those with physical limitations can participate, performing the movements while seated.  During the six one hour sessions, participants will have the opportunity to learn and practice, basic movements while seated, with an accredited Tai Chi Chih teacher, Sr. Christa Marie Thompson.
The body of high quality medical evidence providing sound arguments for practicing TCC is growing along with TV, newspaper, magazine, and “Web” accounts of the wide ranging health benefits  regular practitioners have gained.  
Studies linking TCC to positive changes in all of the following:
Arthritis                                                COPD
Depression & Anxiety                        Immune System
General Health                                   Increased Energy
Healthy Aging                                     Pain Relief
Healthy Weight                                  Peace and Joy

 Image result for paws for reading"PAWS for Reading is a program that allows children to read aloud to a therapy dog (or cat, or bunny!) in order to improve reading and communication skills. Children read individually to trained therapy pets (and their handlers) in schools, libraries, or other settings where they can feel comfortable and confident — and have fun! After all, a dog will not correct them or make them feel awkward if they stumble."
