Artist Miriam Wotiz is displaying her landscapes in the Wotiz Gallery through the end of April.  There will be a reception honoring her work this evening which is free and open to the public.  "Wotiz is known for her spontaneous and luminous paintings.  She works intuitively and with feeling, interpreting nature rather than imitating it.  Her paintings capture the fleeting effects of light and color and allow the viewer to participate in a visual experience."   A magna cum laude graduate of Brown University, the artist has received many awards and has exhibited her paintings in solo and juried shows throughout New England.  She was invited to display her watercolors at the opening of the Milton Art Museum and served as an artist-in-residence at the American Heart Association's annual fundraising event, "Art for Heart."  There will be various paintings of hers shown during the three-month exhibit, including oils and watercolors and also a few works by her son, Howard Lizotte, which are described as encaustic painting (pigmented wax).  Please join us and meet the artists, and enjoy some conversation and refreshments in the gallery.

There will be a film screening tonight of the documentary Girl Rising.  This is a program appropriate for both a young adult and adult audience.   Travel the globe to meet nine unforgettable girls - striving beyond circumstance, pushing past limits.  Their dreams, their voices, their incredible stories are captured in a film about the strength of the human spirit and the power of education to changed the world.  Girls featured include Ruksana, an Indian pavement-dweller whose father sacrificies his own basic needs for his daughter's dreams; Sokha, an orphan who rises from a life in a Cambodian landfill to become a star student and accomplished dancer; and Suma, who writes songs to help her endure forced servitude in Nepal and today crusades to liberate others.   More than a film, Girl Rising is the heart of a movement that is spreading around the world promoting this powerful truth: educating girls in the developing world can transform families, communities, entire countries and break the cycle of poverty in just one generation.  Please join us for a very inspiring evening to view this excellent documentary.  And bring your teen daughters along!   The film is rated PG13 for thematic material including disturbing images, and the running time is 103 minutes.  It will start promptly at 6:30 PM.  The program is sponsored by the Friends of the Milton Public Library.

During the month of May, local painter Diane Sawyer will display her work in the Wotiz Gallery.  She received a BFA from the Boston Museum School and Tufts University in 1979, and has completed additional coursework at MassArt, Museum School, and Bennington College.  She has also studied with numerous artists.  Diane describes her work this way: "My pastels are done in very soft pastels on a sanded paper.  The sanded surface allows for colors to be layered over one another, creating a sense of space and atmosphere.  Working with pastel is working with pure pigment.  The surface is touched as little as possible, except in areas like the sky, which is usually blended.  Layering the pastel pigments has allowed me to explore light and color, and how they change over distance.  I am particularly intrigued right now with water, how it reflects the sky, but also is transparent, with the objects below and above the surface combining in an every-changing mosaic.  All of my work is essentially about light, the way it falls on the landscape.  I love the light in the warm summer months, especially in the morning and the evening, when the sun is low in the sky.  Shadows deepen, and colors seem especially vivid in the slanting light.  In the winter, the light is cooler, and the colors more muted.  However, it is often clearer, and there is a beautiful stillness and clarity in the landscape."  Ms. Sawyer is owner and principal of Sawyer Design Associates, LLC, a graphic design studio in Milton, MA.   For more information about her fine art see: dianesawyer.wordpress.com and for more information about Sawyer Design see: www.sawyerdesign.net      Please come to the free and open reception for this exhibit, happening on Thursday evening, May 14th from 6-8 PM.  Meet the artist and enjoy this lovely display.  For more information about displaying your art at the library, contact Jean Hlady, Adult Services Librarian.

Tonight there will be a free screening of the film "The Judge" starting promptly at 6:30 PM.  This inspiring movie stars Robert Downey Jr. and Robert Duvall.  It tells the story of big city lawyer Hank Palmer who returns to his childhood home where his estranged father, the town's judge, is suspected of murder.  He sets out to discover the truth and along the way reconnects with the family he walked away from years before.  It is rated R for language, including some sexual references, and is not appropriate for children.  Running time is 141 minutes.  Other actors featured are Vera Farmiga, Vincent D'Onofrio, Jeremy Strong and Dax Shepard, and some scenes were filmed in Milton!  This program is sponsored by the Friends of the Milton Public Library.

    Contact: Jean Hlady   (617) 698-5757   
   

Tonight there will be a free screening of the very entertaining film, "The Hundred Foot Journey."  Starring Academy Award winner Helen Mirren, produced by Steven Spielberg, Oprah Winfrey and Juliet Blake, and directed by Lasse Hallstrom, this uplifting story bursts with flavor, passion and heart.  When the chilly chef proprietress of the Michelin-starred French restaurant in southern France gets wind of a culinary immigrant opening an Indian restaurant just 100 feet from her own, her icy protests escalate to all-out war between the two establishments.  It's a celebration of triumph over exile as these two worlds collide and one young man tries to find the comfort of home in every pot - wherever he may be  The movie is rated PG for thematic elements, some violence, language and brief sensuality, but it is appropriate for all ages.  The running time is 122 minutes and this program is sponsored by the Friends of the Milton Public Library.
