    Contact: Margaret Ferguson   860-868-7586   gunnprograms@biblio.org
   

Jessica Ifshin, a Licensed Acupuncturist and Diplomate of Oriental Medicine of New Milford Hospital will deliver an informative presentation on the many benefits of Acupuncture. 

Acupuncture has been used for thousands of years to create and maintain health and well-being of body, mind and spirit.  Whether it is used for symptom-specific or preventative purposes, this therapy is known to restore balance, reduce stress and support the body’s inherent healing powers.

Ms. Ifshin has 14 years of clinical experience and began her pursuit of Eastern Asian Medicine in San Diego, California where she maintained a thriving clinical practice.   In addition to maintaining a private practice, Jessica was also fortunate enough to spend 6 years as a full faculty member at the Pacific College of Oriental Medicine/San Diego campus learning and instructing about EAM which is her passion.  Jessica has done post-graduate work in Oriental Medicine at the Hubei TCM College in Wuhan, China and has participated in various wellness, educational, and public speaking events on both coasts.  

To begin the evening’s program Susan Twombly, Community Outreach and Integrative Medicine Coordinator at New Milford Hospital, will give a brief visual presentation to introduce and explain EBSCO’s Consumer Health Complete.  CHC is the single most comprehensive online resource for consumer-oriented health content, and is accessible from home with a Gunn library card as well as in the library.

misc_none 9:30 AM  -  5:00 PM Stairwell Gallery exhibit 'Still Life...and More' by Hilarie Johnson     Tell a Friend
   

The Stairwell Gallery at Gunn Memorial Library in Washington, CT is delighted to announce the opening of a new show by local painter Hilarie Johnson. The exhibit will be up from March 14 through April 24 and may be viewed during normal library hours.

The artist’s work has been featured on the cover of the international magazine The Chronicle of the Horse as well as Country and Abroad. She has been featured in articles about her work in The Horse in Art and the Litchfield County Times. For several years she was a record-selling artist in the popular catalog, In the Company of Dogs, which sold over 6,000 giclée prints of her series “About to be Naughty.” Hilarie has received portrait commissions from coast to coast as well as Europe and the Caribbean. 

Hilarie is a self-taught artist.  “…rejected from every art school I applied to back in the ‘70s,” her realistic style didn’t conform to the abstract and graphic art rage of the times. Inspired by her lifetime love of horses, she attended Boston University with the intention of becoming a veterinarian; but she decided against this goal and traveled throughout Europe for several years. When Hilarie returned to the United States, she began riding horses for a well-known trainer. Within a short period she became a professional trainer and has been teaching and training for over thirty years.

After vacationing in the Caribbean, Hilarie was inspired to revisit her love of painting.  Her background with horses served her well, and she began to create equine portraits. Not restricted to one type of portrait, she has had success creating portraits of adults, children, horses, dogs and more.

The versatility of her subject matter extends from portrait to still life and landscape. She works in oils and watercolors, but the one commonality is the length of time she spends on a painting. There are at least thirty layers of paint, of which Hilarie says “time consuming but worth it. I love to paint, and I hope it shows.”

Call the library for further information at (860) 868-7586 or email gunncirc@biblio.org. Gunn Memorial Library is located at 5 Wykeham Road at the juncture of Route 47 opposite the Green in Washington, CT.  For more information and for library hours visit our website gunnlibrary.org.
