Gunn Library Welcomes “The Seasons”, recent paintings from Jim Stanton

With a new collection of watercolor paintings, noted artist and designer Jim Stanton celebrates the seasons, focusing on the garden and the beautiful vistas of Litchfield County. The show will be on display from May 13 through June 23 during regular hours at the Gunn Memorial Library's Stairwell Gallery, 5 Wykeham Road (at Route 47) in Washington. There will be an artist's reception on Saturday, May 19 from 12 noon to 2 PM in the Library's Wykeham Room.

Stanton offers a new selection of original paintings of the seasons, focused on the garden and the beautiful vistas of Litchfield County and beyond. Working with expressive color, he explores a wide variety of brush strokes, patterns and rendering techniques informed by a study of Homer, Sargent, Hassam, and Wyeth.

Stanton began studying painting and drawing in a special high school arts program hosted by the University of Cincinnati, and continued his college studies there, majoring in graphic design at UC’s College of Design, Architecture, Art and Planning. He graduated with honors, participating in the co-op study program in Chicago and New York.  Upon moving to New York City, he studied figure drawing and anatomy with Robert Beverly Hale, and watercolors with Mario Cooper and Dale Meyers at the Art Students League.

After working with several New York City design firms he joined Hill and Knowlton, International Public Relations Counsel, in 1983 as a design director and vice president, concentrating on corporate, marketing and economic development communications. He formed Stanton Design in 1995. Today, he designs publications, corporate identity and digital media. In addition, he has provided illustrations for numerous award-winning publications. Stanton’s artwork is in the collection of the Town of Roxbury and prized by collectors across the United States. He was also the winner of the zip code day postmark design competition for both 06793 and 06794.

Dominika Egorova is many things. A devoted daughter determined to protect her mother at all costs. A prima ballerina whose ferocity has pushed her body and mind to the absolute limit. When she suffers a career-ending injury, Dominika and her mother are facing a bleak and uncertain future. That is why she finds herself manipulated into becoming the newest recruit for Sparrow School, a secret intelligence service that trains exceptional young people like her to use their bodies and minds as weapons. After enduring the perverse and sadistic training process, she emerges as the most dangerous Sparrow the program has ever produced. Dominika must now reconcile the person she was with the power she now commands, with her own life and everyone she cares about at risk, including an American CIA agent who tries to convince her he is the only person she can trust.

Jason Bateman and Rachel McAdams star as Max and Annie, whose weekly couples game night gets kicked up a notch when Max's charismatic brother, Brooks (Chandler), arranges a murder mystery party, complete with fake thugs and faux federal agents. So when Brooks gets kidnapped, it's all part of the game--right? But as the six uber-competitive gamers set out to solve the case and win, they begin to discover that neither this game--nor Brooks--are what they seem to be. Over the course of one chaotic night, the friends find themselves increasingly in over their heads as each twist leads to another unexpected turn. With no rules, no points, and no idea who all the players are, this could turn out to be the most fun they've ever had... or game over. R / 1hr 40min

Angelo Perrone exhibits Paintings at Gunn Memorial Library Stairwell Gallery - June 30 – August 11, 2018

“Impressions of Nature”

A new collection of paintings by Oxford artist Angelo Perrone featuring the changing seasons of New England will be on display at the Gunn Memorial Library Stairwell Gallery from June 30 through August 11. There will be an opening reception from 12 to 2 PM on Saturday, June 30.

While Perrone has been painting in mixed media for over 60 years, he is constantly searching for new ways to celebrate his love of natural beauty.  Much of the new collection called “Impressions of Nature” is more modern in nature with brush strokes that are oriental in flavor stemming from his much acclaimed ability as a calligraphist.

Perrone grew up in Harlem and graduated from Cooper Union Art School. He won a scholarship to study painting at Oxford University in England and pursued a career as a book designer and art director at Reader’s Digest where he worked for 38 years. He has had several solo shows and his paintings are in private collections throughout the US and Europe.

Gunn Memorial Library is located at 5 Wykeham Road at the juncture of Route 47 opposite the Green in Washington, CT.  Library hours may be found on our website, gunnlibrary.org. For more information call (860)868-7586 or email the library circulation desk, gunncirc@biblio.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.
