Artist Plates Project
Remind Me about this Event Download Event Info Tell a Friend
   

The Artist Plates Project is a traveling exhibition of artist created “dinner plates” created by participating artists from all over the country as well as France and Canada. The focus of the project, conceived by Don Mistretta, was to raise awareness and funds for the hungry through the grass roots organization, Hunger Relief through the Arts Foundation. Each artist began with an unfinished birch wood platter about the size of a dinner plate and uniquely painted, carved, sculpted and glazed to create their statement on the plight of the homeless, the unfortunate, and the hungry. This project ran for 10 years at multiple venues.   The exhibition at the Great Neck Library Gallery highlights works from the project.

lib_book_red 7:00 PM  -  8:00 PM Mother Daughter Book Discussions facilitated by librarian Barbara Buckley Remind Me about this Event Download Event Info Tell a Friend
   

Has there ever been a more precious, yet complex relationship than that of a mother and a daughter?  Whether the journey has been perfect or fraught with stress, the best way to understand this emotional minefield is through literature.

We will explore this intimate kinship in a reading group series.  Beginning on Wednesday, July 19, the group will enjoy the film “Postcards from the Edge,” based on the autobiography of Carrie Fisher and her love/hate relationship with her mother, Debbie Reynolds.

The week following, on Wednesday, July 26, discuss The Mare by Mary Gaitskill.  This novel probes the existential question—what is a mother?

Elizabeth Strout’s slim but substantive novel, My Name is Lucy Barton will be discussed on Wednesday, August 9.  It plunges right into the estranged relationship of Elizabeth and her mother, a woman she has not seen in years.

To end the series on Wednesday, August 30, the group will explore the wonderful Amy Tan’s book The Valley of Amazement.  From The Joy Luck Club to The Kitchen God’s Wife, Tan is at the epicenter studying the phenomenally complicated mother-daughter love affair.

Register online (on the July 19 form for the entire series or on each individual date) or by calling the Reference Dept. at 466-8055, ext. 218/219.

Please call early if you’d like us to interloan any or all titles in the series. It takes 1-2 weeks for interloan books to arrive at the library, as well as your time for reading!!

The Philosophy of Travel

Why do we travel?  What joys, benefits, and values do we get?   What have we learned that can enrich our further travels?  Can travel be “transformational”?   Can it impel us to discover or re-discover things about ourselves, or about the world?  What are the downsides of traveling – personal, social, economic, political, and environmental?  Let’s  share what travel has meant to us: our most notable experiences, discoveries, and wisdom.

Enjoy light refreshments and thoughtful conversation.

Come share your life experiences, knowledge, and wisdom about topics that matter, as we move from small talk to Big Talk. Everyone speaks and everyone listens, because all of us are wiser than any of us.  Topics announced in advance on flip chart at the Information Desk. No registration required. To receive further information about this session and ensuing ones, please send an e-mail to Ron Gross at grossassoc@aol.com

presented by Thomas Germano
Remind Me about this Event Download Event Info Tell a Friend
   

Societal shifts in the post WWII era made it possible for more women to work professionally as artists, yet their work was often dismissed in the male dominated art world. Reflecting an international language that transcended national and regional narratives, abstraction dominated artistic practice during these years.  

Inspired by the MoMA's 'Making Spaces' exhibit and drawn mostly from MoMA's collection, works presented will range from the boldly gestural canvases of Lee Krasner, Helen Frankenthaler, and Joan Mitchell; geometries by Lygia Clark, Lygia Pape, and Gego; reductive abstractions of Agnes Martin, Anne Truitt, and Jo Baer; fiber weavings of Magdalena Abakanowicz, Sheila Hicks, and Lenore Tawney; and the process-oriented sculptures of Lee Bontecou, Louise Bourgeois, and Eva Hesse. 

Join Professor Thomas Germano who will present this visual lecture that reflects the MoMA's 2017 'Making Spaces' exhibition.

Thomas Germano is an artist and Art Professor at Farmingdale State College, SUNY.

Registration suggested by calling 466-8055, ext. 208 or register online.

presented by Robert Cohen
Remind Me about this Event Download Event Info Tell a Friend
   

Jewish Themes in American Popular, Classical, & Folk Music

Throughout the past century, American-Jewish composers, & some non-Jewish musicians as well, have infused mainstream musical forms & styles — from popular song & musical theater to folk music & bluegrass; from classical music & jazz to reggae & world music — with Jewish passions & yearning as well as Jewish musical themes & motifs: with the sounds of Jewish chant & the texts of Jewish prayer.

Robert Cohen’s programs grew from teaching New York City music at the New School in New York; from many years of showcasing Jewish (and some American folk and popular) music on the radio -- on several original series in New York and on NPR's "One People, Many Voices: American-Jewish Music Comes of Age" (now in the permanent collection of the Paley Center for Media in New York); and from studying Graduate Education at the Jewish Theological Seminary. New York Council for the Humanities speaker.
