Gunnery Art Students Exhibit at Gunn Memorial Library
February 20, 2016 – April 2, 2016
Reception:  February 20th, 11am-1pm

Fine arts are an integral part of life at The Gunnery. The Art Department is committed to the development of young artists and their relationship to art making as a means of self-expression, creative growth, and as a means to stimulate creative thinking skills in other academic disciplines.

Gunnery art teacher Andrew Richards states, “At the Gunnery we want our students to try different artistic mediums and explore their creative ideas.  Creativity is an attribute that can have a positive effect on student lives no matter what career they pursue. Students are encouraged to focus on improving their artistic technique while also expanding their creative ideas.  We are pleased to display artwork for students from seven different countries, eight including the US, and four different states.”

Students in Arts Department at The Gunnery learn to question old stereotypes and to think critically. The process of creating transcends mere project and activity. Creating art, rehearsing, and practicing become a process of self-discovery. Creative risk taking is highly prized, as well as good craftsmanship and a commitment to inventiveness.

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

A screening of the documentary A Voice Among the Silent: The Legacy of James G. McDonald, who was the first US Ambassador to Israel, will be shown.

Voice Among the Silent, by filmmaker Shuli Eshel and released is 2014, is the first documentary to shine light on James McDonald’s remarkable efforts to warn the world of Adolf Hitler’s plan for the Jews. The incredible story of McDonald’s foresight was almost lost to history until his meticulously kept diaries were discovered in 2003.

The son of Catholic immigrants, James McDonald was one of the first Americans to meet face-to-face with Hitler in 1933. Shocked by Hitler’s threats, McDonald, as League of Nation High Commissioner for Refugees, worked tirelessly to find safe havens for refugees fleeing Nazi Germany. McDonald repeatedly warned world leaders including President Franklin Roosevelt and future Pope Pius XII, of the looming tragedy he foresaw.  Running time 53 minutes. 

Ambassador McDonald’s grandson, H. Vail Barrett of Roxbury, CT will be present for commentary and audience discussion.

Snow date: Thursday March 10, 6:30pm.

ALLIANCE FRANCAISE OF NORTHWEST CT President, Marda Gutierrez, will lead a French discussion group entitled Parlez-vous Francais?   Participants are welcome to join all or some of the sessions.   

Whether you are just learning French or an advanced speaker you are welcome to join.  This is a great opportunity to learn, practice and improve your French language skills at these informal meetings.  A short article in French about a particular subject, cultural tradition or newsworthy event will be shared to initiate an informal conversation.  The emphasis will be on participants having an opportunity to offer their opinion, ask questions for better understanding and/or exchange ideas in French.

Alliance Francaise is a non-profit organization dedicated to the promotion of the French language and culture and to fostering friendship and understanding with the French-speaking world. For more information on Alliance Francaise of NW CT visit afnwct.org
