misc_none 9:30 AM  -  5:00 PM Gunn Memorial Library Stairwell Gallery Remind Me about this Event   Tell a Friend
   

“Twenty Two North” Exhibit by Rick Schatzberg Opens April 15th at Gunn Memorial Stairwell Gallery

CONTACT: Sharon Morrissey/Gunn Memorial Library gunnstaff@biblio.org

From the Bronx to the Canadian border, photographer Rick Schatzberg spent more than two years photographing the human and physical landscape along Route 22 in New York State.  An exhibit of photographs documenting his journey will be on display at the Gunn Memorial Library Stairwell Gallery in Washington from April 15 through May 9.

“My work is informed by literary and photographic road trip genres, but it departs from the tradition of quickly moving through America,” explains Schatzberg. “Like improvisational music, I was trying to build and reinterpret a place through repeated sessions. Human subjectivity, color, light, chance, and movement are the elements that helped me describe an environment in flux, to understand a place as process rather than fact.”

Schatzberg has had a varied career. After spending thirty years as an executive and entrepreneur in the publishing and health care industries, he graduated from the International Center of Photography’s General Studies program and is currently in the University of Hartford’s Photo MFA program. He also holds a degree in anthropology from Columbia University and once played French horn with the Cecil Taylor’s Ensemble. He lives in Brooklyn, NY and Norfolk, CT.

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

New York Times Bestselling Author, Dr. Kevin Gutzman, will offer a talk and book signing on his recently published book, Thomas Jefferson – Revolutionary:  A Radical’s Struggle to Remake America.  

Although remembered as the third president of the United States and chief author of the Declaration of Independence, Thomas Jefferson was also something more: the most successful constructive statesman in American history. Thomas Jefferson—Revolutionary: A Radical's Struggle to Remake America shows him formulating his radical plans to republicanize America and then working, with remarkable success, to implement them. Born into a monarchical society, Jefferson turned his great intellect and energy to making it highly egalitarian. Much of what we take for granted about America now was originally Jefferson's idea. It is a fascinating story.  For more information on Kevin visit www.kevingutzman.com

The Gunn Historical Museum’s History Bites Lecture will be presented by Claire Lee, a 2016-17 Gunn Scholar at The Gunnery. She will give a presentation titled, The Role of Religion at The Gunnery 1850-2016 in the Wykeham Room of the Gunn Memorial Library. Parking is limited, please carpool.

Ms. Lee will explore the influence, or lack thereof, of religion, both organized and cultural, at The Gunnery. Beginning with founder Frederick Gunn who declined to join the socially powerful Congregational Church in the 1840s and wrote of his profound religious beliefs, Claire will trace religious practices and beliefs at the independent school through the administrations of each of the 11 headmasters. Drawing a distinction between moral and spiritual influences and the religious practices at the school, Claire has spoken with living alumni and heads of school, and explored correspondence, newspapers, and school publications in the process of her research.  

History Bites is an annual, ten-week lunchtime lecture series that takes place from April through June, on topics of local history at different heritage sites throughout Northwestern Connecticut. All lectures, which are free to the public, will be held at noon on Thursdays. Attendees are invited to bring lunch. Beverage and dessert will be provided by the hosting organization. The theme for this year’s lecture series is Digging Deeper. Each presenter will delve into the stories preserved in the objects and histories contained in each institution’s collections. The 2017 History Bites series is sponsored by the Connecticut Community Foundation.

lib_bookflipping 4:30 PM  -  6:00 PM Connecting w/ E.M. Forster Book Discussions Remind Me about this Event   Tell a Friend
    Contact: Margaret Ferguson   860-868-7586   gunnprograms@biblio.org
   

Washington CT literary enthusiasts, Kathy Kehoe and Karen Silk will lead two book discussions entitled Connecting with E.M. Forster.  The discussions scheduled, on Forster’s two best-known novels, are Howard’s End (1910) on Tuesday, May 23, 2017 at 4:30pm and A Passage to India (1924) on Tuesday June 13, 2017 at 4:30pm.

E. M. Forster is one of the most celebrated British novelists of the 20th century. Howards End and A Passage to India are quite different in theme and setting, but have an important aspect in common.  Both novels take place in a strictly divided society and deal with the insularity of separate communities and their inability to reach beyond their own environment and experience. E. M. Forster strongly believed in the importance of personal relationships and in living a life in which spiritual, physical and emotional aspects are all in harmony by establishing connections with others despite boundaries of gender, class, or petty grievance.  To reach harmony, both within the self and within the society, is what the characters of these novels strive for.  This is not a lecture series and participation will be encouraged.

Copies of the books will be available at the circulation desk three weeks prior to the discussions.
