Anita Healy’s First Solo Show -- “Breathe”
June 3 through July 22
Reception June 17, 12p-2p

Gunn Memorial Library announces the opening of “Breathe,” the first solo show by local painter Anita Healy.

“’Just breathe Neetie.’ Those were my mother’s words to me throughout my childhood as I battled asthma,” says Healy explaining the show’s title. “So, what does my asthma and the tight living quarters of my childhood have to do with my art?” asks Healy who grew up with five sisters in a Naugatuck apartment.  “Everything! When selecting landscapes, I seek out locations that are broad and open, letting in air and light. They are places where you can fill your lungs with clean, crisp, rejuvenating air.”

Healy is a graduate of the University of Connecticut and holds a Masters degree from Fairfield University. She spent a fulfilling career in education as a teacher, guidance counselor and middle school principal. Since 2006, she has studied with Patricia Keville Fogel at the Washington Art Association and with Cape Cod Master Plein Air painter Rosalie Nadeau.

For further information please call (860) 868-7586 or email gunnstaff@biblio.org. The Gunn Memorial Library is located at 5 Wykeham Road at the juncture of Route 47 opposite the Green in Washington, CT.  For library hours and to learn more about Gunn’s programs and events visit gunnlibrary.org.

John Long, Shakespeare scholar and frequent lecturer in Drama and Film at UConn, will lead a four session screening and discussion on film adaptations of William Shakespeare’s plays.  This series of Shakespeare plays adapted for film will show different styles and approaches to the original scripts while also illustrating their power and continuing relevance. 

Participants will discuss the choices made by each film to bring the story and characters to life.  The discussions will also explore other questions such as: what does film interpretation bring to the story? Are there important pieces of the original play missing? Does the film capture the spirit and intent of the play? Why do these stories and characters last and make connections with us hundreds of years after their premiere? Do film techniques change the impact or is it simply a different experience that is equally important? We will also consider questions brought up by audience members.

Groups of visitors will meet at the Museum and be led by Tour Guides dressed in vintage attire along a path of 1,000 luminaries through the Cemetery to meet some of Washington's unforgettable residents from the past. Unique, memorable and familiar citizens from the last century will be brought to life by costumed actors who will tell stories of their life; some amusing, some sad, some tragic — even horrific!

Cemetery Tour attendees should come to the Gunn Historical Museum and form a line to get numbered tickets for the tours, handed out on a first-come first-serve basis, starting at 6:15 p.m. on Oct. 27, and continuing through the evening until the tickets run out. Tours of the Cemetery depart from the Gunn Museum in groups of eighteen people every eight minutes between 6:30 and 8:30 p.m. and last approximately one hour. Unfortunately tickets can not be reserved and specific times can't be requested. While there is no fee to attend the Cemetery Tour, donations are greatly appreciated.

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, and wear comfortable walking shoes.
