misc_none Wotiz Gallery: Paintings by Modern Artist Jose Berrios     Tell a Friend
    Contact: Jean Hlady   (617) 698-5757, x. 3   
   

This month the Library will host talented painter Jose Berrios in the Wotiz Gallery.  Mr. Berrios was born in Puerto Rico and has lived in the Boston area since the seventies.  He attended Inter-American Universityin Puerto Rico for a Bachelors Degree in Education, and then received a Masters in Education from Antioch College in Ohio.  He has been living in Milton for about 30 years and is a self-taught artist, having worked as a Special Education teacher in the public schools as his career.  His paintings are very colorful and creative, and mostly abstract.  He uses oil paints to create them, and was "afraid of using strokes of paint" so started out using the technique of "punctualism" or dots to form the images.  This approach "makes the colors more interesting and they blend better" the artist says.  He also uses knives to create lines in his paintings for texture.  His body of work is very unique, bright and pretty fascinating to view.  There will be a reception for this exhibit which will soon be announced here.  And please come to the Library to check out this very cool display in August!

    Contact: Jean Hlady   (617) 698-5757, x. 3   
   

This evening Library Director Will Adamczyk will hold his "Local History Book Chat."  (Please note the location will be the upstairs art gallery today.)  The book to be read in advance is The Big House by George Howe Colt (c2003). In this intimate and poignant history of a sprawling century-old summer house on Cape Cod, George Howe reveals not just one family's fascinating story - but a vanishing way of life.  Faced with the sale of the treasured house where he had spent 43 summers, he and his wife and children return for one last stay.  This wonderful tribute to the eleven-bedroom jumble of gables, bays, and dormers that has watched over weddings, divorces, deaths, anniversaries, birthdays, breakdowns, and love affairs for five generations interweaves Colt's final visit with memoirs of a lifetime of summers.  Run-down yet romantic, "The Big House" stands not only as a cherished reminder of summer's ephemeral pleasures but also as a powerful symbol of a vanishing way of life.    Please join Will for a discussion about a topic that often touches many of us as we grow up and leave our family homes..  This program is kindly sponsored by the Friends of the Milton Public Library.

misc_none Wotiz Gallery Exhibit: Photography by Leesha Boylan     Tell a Friend
    Contact: Jean Hlady   (617) 698-5757, x. 3   
   

Starting on September lst, there will be a wonderful exhibit on display in the Wotiz Gallery by Milton photographer Leesha Boylan.  In this personal project,  which is called "Available Light: Exploring Americana Through New England Cottages," Ms. Boylan photographs objects found in antique cabins and cottages throughout New England, using only the available natural light and shooting the objects exactly as she found them.  These pieces of Americana from family cottages explore ideas around leisure, the passage of time, and nostalgia.  She is the photographer and owner of Leesha Haley Photography, shooting weddings, portraits, and events in the Boston area for the past 17 years.  Leesha has a BFA in Photography and Art  Education from Massachusetts College of Art and an M.Ed. from Bridgewater State University.  She sets out to document the loveliness in the world, creating a narrative and evoking emotion through the use of light, mood, and composition.  When she is not behind the lens, Leesha can be found in the classroom as a fine arts teacher in the Boston Public Schools.  She also loves adventuring near and far with her husband and two daughters.  There will be a free and open reception held on Thursday evening, October 18th from 6-8 PM, where you can come to the Gallery to meet the artist.  Please check out this interesting exhibit at the Library this Fall.

In order to participate, please take these simple steps:

  • Please register through the library events calendar. Only registered cooks will be able to attend.
  • Borrow a copy of the book from the library and choose a dish. Books are available at the Circulation Desk one month ahead. (If you borrow a cookbook but won't be able to attend the meeting, please return the cookbook so someone else can check it out. Thank you!)
  • Once you've chosen your recipe, contact Sara by email (struog@ocln.org) or phone (617-898-4951) to let her know what recipe you’ll be trying so we don't have a lot of duplication in the dishes we'll sample on meeting night!

This evening there will be an author talk by journalism professor Alexis Clark about her new biography called "Enemies in Love" (New Press, c2018).  This is a true love story between a black army nurse who falls in love with a German prisoner of war in Arizona during World War II.  Elinor Powell was an African American nurse in the U.S. military who pulled a second-class assignment, in a dusty, sun-baked - and segregated - Western town.  Brought together by unlikely circumstances in a racist world, Elinor and Frederick Albert, a soldier in Hitler's army who was captured by the allies and shipped to a prisoner-of-war camp in the Arizona desert, fell in love - instead of becoming bitter enemies.  Their dramatic story was unearthed by journalist Alexis Clark, who through years of interviews and historical research, has pieced together an astounding narrative of race and true love in the cauldron of war.  Don't miss this interesting biographical talk by Professor Clark at the library. This event is jointly sponsored by Milton Historical Society and Milton Public Library.

Calling all Cooks!  The Milton Public Library Cookbook Club, led by local chef Connie Spiros and Assistant Director Sara Truog, invites you to its next session on Monday, November 5 from 6:30-7:30pm.  Each club meeting will feature a selected cookbook, and members will prepare a tasty treat from the book to bring to the Library and share.  The cookbook chosen for November is TBA.

In order to participate, please take these simple steps:

  • Please register through the library events calendar. Only registered cooks will be able to attend.
  • Borrow a copy of the book from the library and choose a dish. Books are available at the Circulation Desk one month ahead. (If you borrow a cookbook but won't be able to attend the meeting, please return the cookbook so someone else can check it out. Thank you!)
  • Once you've chosen your recipe, contact Sara by email (struog@ocln.org) or phone (617-898-4951) to let her know what recipe you’ll be trying so we don't have a lot of duplication in the dishes we'll sample on meeting night!

Space is limited and advance registration is required. Registration will open on Monday, October 15. Once you register you will receive more details about the club.  Bon Appetit!
