objects_easel.png Virtual Art Exhibit by Beth Neville Remind Me about this Event 3 Download Event Info Tell a Friend
    Contact: Jean Hlady     jhlady@ocln.org
   

The Milton Public Library is hosting an online art exhibit for the next 6 weeks of works by Milton artist Beth Neville.  Her most ambitious painting, "Eternal Recurrence of the Same," is seven feet high by 70 feet long.  And that is not a typo."  Seventy feet!  It is constructed in 5 foot by 7 foot panels.  The acrylic painting uses volcanoes as metaphors for the duration of a human life, creativity, and the vastness of the cosmos.  But in less ambitious moments, Beth paints what she loves around her: flowers, farm fields, her gardens, and Turner's pond.  she grew up on an apple farm in the Hudson Valley and was surrounded by fruit trees of many types.  Plums, peaches, grapes, crabapples, and pears were grown along many varieties of apples.  The paintings in the MPL virtual exhibit demonstrate her love for the luscious and colorful nature of her childhood.  Most of the paintings are done with acrylic paint on etching paper, but some are oils.  She particularly likes the Fall vista of the curving path of "Turner's Pond" with the golden glow of fall leaves in the background.  The painting was made for the Milton Garden Club horticultural exhibit several years ago.

Here is the link if you would like to view this beautiful exhibit at our website:  https://miltonlibrary.libguides.com/art

You will also find this display if you go to www.miltonlibrary.org and click on "Explore" from the main page.

If you or someone you know would like to display their art at the Milton Public Library, please Email Jean Hlady, Head of Adult Services/Reference, at jhlady@ocln.org to apply for an exhibit.

You can reserve this title in Overdrive by visiting: http://ocln.overdrive.com/media/317492

In A City So Grand, Stephen Puleo chronicles a remarkable period in Boston's history, in his trademark page-turning style. Our journey begins with the ferocity of the abolitionist movement of the 1850s and ends with the glorious opening of America's first subway station, in 1897. In between we witness the 35-year engineering and city-planning feat of the Back Bay project, Boston's explosion in size through immigration and annexation, the devastating Great Fire of 1872 and subsequent rebuilding of downtown, and Alexander Graham Bell's first telephone utterance in 1876 from his lab at Exeter Place.

    Contact: Jean Hlady     jhlady@ocln.org
   

Local artist Annie Lavigne is back to guide you online via Zoom through the process of making a beautiful "Wet Felted Bowl."  To make this lovely craft at home with her guidance, you will need to purchase the following materials to have on hand at home:

  • Towel - hand towel size or larger.  This will absorb excess water.
  • Merino wool roving, 30 grams— Choose any color(s) you'd like.
  • Bubble wrap, with small bubbles, 2 pieces approx 45cm x 45cm each (18" x 18")
  • Tutu net, or any kind of netting-like fabric that will allow water through while holding the wool in place.
  • Rolling mat - a bamboo blind with the fittings removed works well, or a sushi mat, or even a non-slip pad (like you use under a rug or in a cabinet).  This will be used to roll/agitate the wool so that it binds together and makes felt.
  • Water sprayer - you can put a little bit of dish soap in this to make it soapy.  Or if you don't want your bottle to get soapy, you can skip the soap.
  • Bar of Soap - or a piece of soap.
  • Pliable plastic - cut to a circle 6" in diameter.  This is create a form.  It can be any kind of flexible plastic you can find around the house.  Thick acetate sheets work.  I can't be too flimsy.

Please have all materials ready on a table for the start of the class.  You can either sit or stand to make the bowl.

This is a simple project which does not require too many purchases and it is appropriate for adults and anyone over the age of 12.   It will be about one hour in length and our instructor, Annie Lavigne is a talented artist who showed her colorful and fun work in our Wotiz Gallery last November. Ms. Lavigne not only paints, but she also creates soft sculpture.  Her art depicts animals, people, objects and more, and is a delight to see!  She also works with animation and felt pieces, 2D artwork, and framed digital illustrations as well as some mixed media ones.  Annie is the founder of Harriet and Mickey, Inc, a creative studio focused on storytelling through illustration, writing, and animation.

Registration is required; Zoom connection information will be sent to you on the day of the program.  If you are using an iPad or phone, you should first download the Zoom app to participate but you do not have to have your own Zom account to participate.  The program is kindly sponsored by the Friends of the Milton Public Library.

Please sign up and enjoy a craft with us in June!       

        There are 9 spaces available.

The presenter for this Zoom program about Astrology, Sally Cragin, has this to say about it:  "What's your sign?  What does it mean?  There are 12 -- and we can give you some insights about your own sign, and the other 11.  Astrology is as old as human history, and every culture developed their own interpretation of planetary movements. We demystify the signs, and walk you through the basics of understanding the principles of astrology (the first science, as early practitioners used it for purposes of medical assistance, agricultural guidance, public works and civic discourse and marital prospects!)." 

This is going to be a fun and informative talk, and you may remember Sally as she came to our library forTarot Cards in January.   

Ms. Cragin is an award winning journalist whose arts writing and theatre reviews appeared regularly in the Boston Phoenix, Boston Herald, and most recently the Boston Globe.  She has won two Penney-Missouri Journalism awards for feature writing.  From 1999 to 2001, she was the chief drama critic for the St. Louis Riverfront Times and has taught critical writing at several colleges, most recently at Fitchburg State University.  From 1997 to 2013, she wrote "Moon Signs" for many newspapers nationwide, and is the author of The Astrological Elements, and Astrology on the Cusp (Llewellyn Worldwide) which had been translated and sold in many countries around the world.  She also provided weekly astrological forecasts for Audible.com.  Sally is the founder of Riverfront Family Theatre, based in north central Mass, and creates original improvisational theatre programs for children.  Her short plays have been produced in NYC and New England, and she recently published her first childrens book.  

Space will be limited and signup is required; a Zoom link will be Emailed to you on the day of the program.   If you are using an iPad or your phone, you need to download the Zoom app first.  Registration opens here on June lst.  This event is kindly sponsored by the Friends of the Milton Public Library and is free and open to all.  Come learn more about how to predict your future with an experienced teacher!

A long time ago in a faraway world, two brave villagers go on a daring journey to release the dragons and save the kingdom from the Evil Ice Sorceress. When things don’t go as planned, however, they might need to look to themselves (and to science!) for the answer.

Don’t miss this fun fantasy adventure featuring awesome dry ice effects!

Explore the exciting science of solids, liquids and gases as we conduct experiments with DRY ICE. Volunteers will get to:

  • Touch a cloud

  • Pop fog-filled bubbles

  • Launch a rocket into the air

  • Create a CO2-powered shower

  • And more!

Young learners will discover just how ‘cool’ matter can be as they experience science in action!

Birds of prey are also known as raptors, and they are hunting birds characterized by hooked beaks  Birds of prey are also known as raptors, and they are hunting birds

characterized by hooked beaks and powerful grabbing feet armed with sharp  talons (the word raptor comes from a Latin word that means "to seize").  Raptors can also boast the best eyesight

and the sharpest hearing in the animal kingdom. Raptors include hawks, falcons and owls, and this presentation, which incorporates 5-6 live birds of prey, all native to New

England, gives an overview of these different categories. The program is designed to explain predation, the birds' place at the top of the food web, theirdifferent hunting adaptations and their status in

a rapidly changing world.  Because many birds of prey are declining in number, this presentation also features one or more of the endangered raptors that WINGMASTERS cares for, and explains why

these species face an uncertain future.  This program is funded by the Friends of the Milton Public Library.
