MODERN MEETS TRADITIONAL

Tom Pearsall Exhibit Opens September 3rd at the Stairwell Gallery

 

A new collection of paintings and drawings by Washington artist Tom Pearsall brings together the artist’s dual interests in both modern and traditional motifs. The exhibit will be on display in the Stairwell Gallery at the Gunn Memorial Library in Washington, CT from September 3 through October 15 and there will be a reception for the artist on Saturday, September 3 from 12 to 2PM.

Pearsall earned a BA in history from the University of North Carolina, followed by a BA from Parsons School of Design and an MA from Pratt Institute. Additionally, he attended the Lyme Academy of Fine Arts and has studied with Karen O’Neal, Christy Gallagher and Joel Spector.

“Having been trained and employed by modern architects, I developed a preference for representational minimalism,” Pearsall explains. “Since then, I have become more interested in traditional drawing and painting. In particular, some of my favorite artists are French and American impressionists.”

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

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

Martha Hall Kelly, author of the New York Times Bestseller, Lilac Girls will offer a discussion and signing of this recently released historical novel. 

There are stories that need to be told. This is one of them.

Extensively researched, Lilac Girls was inspired by the true story of New York socialite and philanthropist Caroline Ferriday. Using her home in Bethlehem, Connecticut and her social position she helped the women (rabbits) who were tortured and experimented on at Hitler’s only all-female concentration camp, Ravensbrück, during World War II.  

Between 1939 and 1945, it is estimated that 130,000 female prisoners from every country in German-occupied Europe passed through the Ravensbrück camp system. Few survived.  Caroline Ferriday was among the first to awaken the American public to the horrors of Ravensbrück.  In 1959, during Cold War, 14 years after World War II, Ferriday managed to achieve the unthinkable: she got a group of 35 Polish women from behind the Iron Curtain to travel to the US.  She made it her mission to bring them to the states for medical treatment, a road trip across America, Christmas at her CT holiday house, and a dinner with senators in Washington, DC.  The most remarkable change in the group as a whole was in their emotional and psychological regeneration.  

Lilac Girls is told from the perspective of three women whose paths eventually cross: Caroline Ferriday, a German Nazi doctor, Herta Oberhauser, and the fictional Kasia Kuzmerick, a young Polish girl whose character is based on one of the Rabbits, Nina Ivanska.

Their stories cross continents—from New York to Paris, Germany, and Poland—as Caroline and Kasia strive to bring justice to those whom history has forgotten. Martha Hall Kelly has crafted a remarkable novel in Lilac Girls of unsung women and their quest for love, freedom, and second chances. It is a story that will keep readers bonded with the characters, searching for the truth, until the final pages. The Hickory Stick Bookstore will provide books for purchase and signing. 

Martha Hall Kelly discovered the long forgotten story when visiting the gardens at Caroline Ferriday’s Connecticut house turned into a museum, the Bellamy-Ferriday House and Gardens.  After 10 years of research, her bestselling novel Lilac Girls was published.  Ms. Kelly is a native New Englander now living in Atlanta, Georgia, where she’s writing her next book.

Vincent de Luise, MD (clarinet) Melissa Westgate (cello) and Estelle McKenzie (piano), will perform a classical chamber concert, A Century of Viennese Elegance (1786-1891) under the Majestic Mowbray Ceiling. 

Vienna was home to some of the worlds’ most illustrious composers including Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, Ludwig van Beethoven and Johannes Brahms.  Highlighting the timeless beauty and appeal of their works, the acclaimed members of the ensemble will captivate the audience with trios for clarinet, cello and piano of these masters.  Their selections include Mozart’s KV 498, Beethoven’s Op 11 and Brahms Op 114.
