Local quilter Marilyn Masterson will display her beautiful quilts and wall hangings in our Wotiz gallery this month.  Masterson, a long-time Milton resident, learned to sew as a child and many of her quilt pieces have been featured in exhibits and shows around New England, most recently in the Cohasset Church show.  She also creates custom and special orders between designing her own pieces, and this display will showcase watercolor pieces, machine-stitched pictures, and necktie wall hangings.  Come and enjoy our April display to view something completely different than our usual paintings or photographs.  There will be a free and open reception in the gallery on Wednesday, April 6th from 6-8 PM so come and meet the artist and enjoy this fine collection of creative designs.

misc_none Wotiz Gallery Display by Painters Jennie Terminello and Leona Hoey     Tell a Friend
    Contact: Jean Hlady   (617) 698-5757   
   

During the month of May 2016, the Milton Public Library will host a joint exhibit of artwork by two local painters: Lee (Leona) Hoey and Jennie Terminiello.  The paintings will show many different styles and subjects, some in acrylics and oils.  Flowers, landscapes, Italian scenes, and more will be displayed.  Ms. Hoey is a former Fine Arts, Applied Art, Humanitites, Art Appreciation and Art History teacher at Fontbonne Academy, and Ms. Terminiello studied acrylics with her.  Lee is a graduate of the Rhode Island School of Design, was voted “Teacher of the Year 1989, Golden Apple Award, Boston Globe,” is a Master of Decorative Painting, and has taken continuing education classes in art.  She is a resident of Milton and has lectured many times at various chapters of the Society of Decorative Painters, Painting, Gardening, Interior Design & Gourmet Cooking.  She also started out as a mural artist for Boston businesses which supported her during her college years.  Lee is a scrimshaw artist, interior designer, and is a master of furniture design.  She now volunteers to teach painting to "over 60" students.  Jennie Terminiello took lessons from watercolorist Allen Chambers as well as studying with other art teachers, and is a resident of Milton.

 This is what Lee Hoey has to say about her current volunteer teaching: "I was thrilled to see that an artist over 85 years old, still creating, won a prize in the "over 60" competition in March 2016.  What thrills me even more and fills my heart with joy is to watch my students, all over 60 years old, stand back and take in what they have accomplished.  The expressive change behind each painting or drawing adds a touch of magic to their efforts and it surprises them immensely.  We are always being told that it is too much effort to learn anything new, especially when we are convinced erroneously that art is a talent only certain people have.  Anyone can learn to draw or paint and yes, it may take a different kind of lesson plan for some, but it is totally possible and it is a wonderfully healthy tool for our well being and confidence.  We are never too old!  I am so very proud of each person I teach and our brains are still growling with life giving knowledge."  There will be a free and open reception on Thursday, May 5th from 6 - 8 PM.  Please do not miss this lovely exhibit in the Wotiz this month.

Bob Woolf, an Executive Director and Financial Advisor with J.P. Morgan Securities in Boston, educates groups about retirement and Social Security benefits with research backed by the firm. Bob's motivation for helping others ensure that their retirement plans are on track is derived from his personal experience. Bob watched his father work well into his 50's while ignoring a personal history of poor health. His father missed out on years of enjoyment with his family because he was never aware that he had enough to retire. Now, it is his mission is to help others safeguard against repeating this mistake.

Bob's presentation is open to the public, free, and without obligation. Refreshments will be served.

There will be a free screening tonight of the film called "Everest" starring Jason Clarke, Josh Brolin, John Hawkes, Robin Wright, Michael Kelly, Sam Worthington, Keira Knightley, Emily Watson, and Jake Gyllenhaal.  The film is a 2015 American-British 3D biographical adventure-climate disaster survival thriller drama directed by Baltasar Kormakur and it is inspired by the incredible events surrounding an attempt to reach the summit of the world's highest mountain.  Everest documents the awe-inspiring journey of two different expeditions challenged beyond their limits by one of the fiercest snowstorms ever encountered by mankind.  Their mettle tested by the harshest elements found on the planet, the climbers will face nearly impossible obstacles as a lifelong obsession becomes a breathtaking struggle for survival.  This movie is rated PG13 for intense peril and disturbing images and is not suitable for children.  The running time is 121 minutes and it starts promptly at 6:30 PM.  This program is sponsored by the Friends of the Milton Public Library.

Director Will Adamczyk will hold a session of his quarterly "Eclectic Book Club."  This month's book is Never Let Me Go by Ishiguro Kazuo.

From the Booker Prize-winning author of The Remains of the Day and When We Were Orphans, comes an unforgettable edge-of-your-seat mystery that is at once heartbreakingly tender and morally courageous about what it means to be human.  Hailsham seems like a pleasant English boarding school, far from the influences of the city.  It's students are well tended and supported, trained in art and literature, and become just the sort of people the world wants them to be.  But, curiously, they are taught nothing of the outside world and are allowed little contact with it.  Within the grounds of Hailsham, Kathy grows from schoolgirl to young woman, but it's only when she and her friends Ruth and Tommy leave the safe grounds of the school (as they knew they would), that they realize the full truth of what Hailsham is.  Come join Will for a fascinating discussion about a gripping story.

During the month of June, talented Milton artist Thato Mwosa of Tulia Art will display her drawings in the Wotiz Gallery.  She is a filmmaker, screenwriter, artist, teacher and mother of two boys and one girl.  She started Tuli Art out of sheer frustration of not being able to find ballerina art that represented her daughter.  So she created 3 ballerina illustrations and posted them on Facebook, where the feedback was overwhelmingly positive.  She will share her ballerina art pieces with similar images in different poses wearing colorful vibrant colored tutus, and she will also include in this display African inspired doodles/zentagles.  You can check out her websites at www.tuliart.com and Afrik Art.  Also http://www.etsy.com/people/thatomwosa will give you information about purchasing the pieces in her portfolio.

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

There will be a free screening of the film "Spectre" tonight starring Daniel Craig.  A cryptic message from the past sends James Bond on a rogue mission to Mexico City and eventually Rome, where he meets Lucia Sciarra, the beautiful and forbidden widow of an infamous criminal.  Bond infiltrates a secret meeting and uncovers the existence of the sinister organisation known as SPECTRE.  Meanwhile back in London, Max Denbigh, the new head of the Centre for National Security, questions Bond's actions and challenges the relevance of M16, led by M (Ralph Fiennes).  Bond covertly enlists Moneypenny and Q to help him seek out Madeleine Swann, the daughter of his old nemesis Mr. White, who may hold the clue to untangling the web of SPECTRE.  As the daughter of an assassin, she understands Bond in a way most others cannot.  As Bond ventures towards the heart of SPECTRE, he learns of a chilling connection between himself and the enemy he seeks, played by Christoph Waltz.  The movie is rated PG-13 for intense sequences of action and violence, some disturbing images, sensuality, and language, and the running time is 148 minutes. This program is sponsored by the Friends of the Milton Public Library.

During the month of July, there will be a modern painting exhibit by Milton artist Donna Elliot.  This summary comes from her website, which is http://ddivineexpression.com:  "Donna Elliott is spiritually connected to her Creator, with a real passion for life and humanity. She is a self-taught artist who painted her first piece, Emancipation, in January 2013.  Feeling the need to celebrate her freedom to express herself through art, she painted her next piece Celebration.  Her work is positive with beautiful, bold and vibrant colors which serves as a true reflection of herself.  Painting takes her away from everyday life and helps her to see and share the beauty of who we are and why we are here.  This is truly her "divine expression."  Please come and view this fun and colorful display this month.

Tonight there will be a free screening of the film "Bridge of Spies" starring Tom Hanks, starting promptly at 6:30 PM.  A dramatic thriller set against the backdrop of a series of historic events, this movie is "absolutely brilliant and totally riveting" (Bill Zwecker, Chicago Sun-Times).  James Donovan (Tom Hanks) is a Brooklyn lawyer who finds himself thrust into the center of the Cold War when the CIA sends him on a nearly impossible mission to negotiate the release of a captured American U-2 pilot.  High stakes and suspense power a story that captures the essence of a man who risked everything, vividly bringing his personal journey to life.  Mark Rylance won an Academy Award for his role as the alleged Russian spy.  This is rated PG-13 for some violence and brief strong language, and the running time is approximately 141 minutes.  The program is sponsored by the Friends of the Milton Public Library.
