misc_none Gunn Library Stairwell Gallery Remind Me about this Event   Tell a Friend
   

"Art of Imagined Landscapes" paintings by Alissa Morabito

Alissa Morabito has an obsession with beautiful landscapes and paints them through a retrospective and romanticized view. “I paint to bridge the gap between the real world and the perceived world,” she explains. “I want to capture that fleeting bit of magic that forever remains locked away in our memories.” An exhibit of Morabito’s amazing paintings will be on display at the Gunn Memorial Library Stairwell Gallery in Washington, Conn. from February 3 to March 17.

“I have an impassioned longing for light,” she points out. “Capturing the light is everything; it is what makes an ordinary landscape or figure ethereal.” Morabito feels that most moments in life, especially the ones we hold the closest to our hearts cannot often be captured on film. “Every painting, every stroke, starts from a memory and is linked with a feeling.”

Ray Reich, a Washington resident and former Gunnery physics and astronomy teacher, will present Beyond NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope to the James Webb Space Telescope.  In 1990 NASA launched the Hubble Space Telescope. This observatory has revolutionized not only the scientific understanding of the Universe but revealed for the first time what our Universe actually looked like.  Hubble has been transforming astronomers' understanding of the cosmos and answering some of the most intriguing questions in astrophysics. It has been bringing gorgeous images and discoveries of the universe into laypeople's lives and has allowed people to participate in the excitement of discovery ever since. 

With the astonishing success in the last twenty-seven years of photographs and data returned by Hubble, NASA is prepared to launch, in 2019, it’s successor – the James Webb Telescope.   A nearly $9 billion dollar project, Webb will be the premier observatory of the next decade. It will complement and expand Hubble’s discoveries, study every phase in the history of the Universe to the evolution of our solar system.

Ray will share some of Hubble’s photos and discoveries and highlight some of the details and expectations of the new iconic Webb telescope.

We are pleased to welcome back literary scholar Mark Scarbrough as he leads a five week session exploring the History of 20th Century American Literature in 5 Short Stories. Join us as we discuss some of the dominant literary trends that have shaped last century’s literature in the United States like the rise and failure of modernism, the emergence of once-forgotten voices, and the baffling notion of post-modernism. In this lecture/discussions series Mark will lead participants through five stories from the twentieth century, ranging from Willa Cather to Lorrie Moore, Zora Neale Hurston to William Faulkner and Flannery O’Connor. Time will be spent with multi-media presentations of music, painting, and dance, based on these five representative selections.

    Contact: Lisa Breese, Museum Operations Manager   860-868-7756   info@gunnhistoricalmuseum.org
   

Take a candlelit tour through the Washington Green Cemetery and meet some of Washington’s unforgettable residents from the past! A community favorite - hundreds attend each year.

Groups of visitors will be led by tour guides dressed in vintage attire along a path of 1,000 luminaries through the Washington Cemetery. Citizens from centuries long ago will be brought to life by costumed actors who will tell their true stories; some amusing, some sad and some tragic. This year's tour will feature all new stories!

Attendees will get numbered tickets for the tours at the Gunn Museum, on a first-come first-serve basis, starting at 6:15 pm on Friday, October 26, 2018 and continuing through the evening until the tickets run out. Tickets can't be reserved in advance.

Tours of the cemetery depart from the Museum with eighteen people every eight minutes between 6:30-8:30pm and last approximately one hour. Refreshments, face painting for kids, and a Halloween themed movie will be shown in the Wykeham Room of the Gunn Library where attendees can wait inside for their tour group to depart.

Visitors are encouraged to bring a flashlight, dress warmly, wear comfortable walking shoes, and carpool since parking is limited. The cemetery is dark and the ground is not level so the tour is not recommended for people who are unstable on their feet. The rain date for the Cemetery Tour is Sunday, Oct. 28 from 6:30 to 8:30 pm. Admission is free, donations are welcome.

Contact 860-868-7756 or info@gunnhistoricalmuseum.org for more information.
