rec_paintpalette02 From the Classical to the Whimsical: the Art and Sculpture of Duk Soon Fwhang Remind Me about this Event   Tell a Friend
    Contact:    1-866-941-8188   
   

Classically trained in painting in her native Korea, Duk Soon Fwhang was born into a family of artists and inventors.  She and her sister Chung Soon Fwhang O’Dwyer, a fellow painter, have managed their own art studios since the 1950s, when they first opened Pocahantas Sisters Art Shop during the Korean war.  The sisters came to the United States in the 1950s to pursue fine arts in the Big Apple. Duk Soon attended the Art Students League on West 57th Street in New York City soon after her arrival and has since worked as a portraitist and illustrator for magazines, books, and websites.  Duk Soon collaborates with Father Victor Hoagland, a Passionist, to create modern inspirational works for the Catholic missions. 

Whether she is working in pastels, oils, watercolor, acrylic, or ink on paper, her body of work spans a wide range of secular and inspirational subjects from still life to pastoral landscapes to portraits of everyday folk, as well as mythical and biblical heroes.  Captivating are her renderings of all sorts of creatures great and small–birds, fish, frogs, insects, cats, and dogs.  She takes special delight in sculpting dolls and figurines out of paper.  She has exhibited her work internationally in private and corporate collections.  She works in her studio in Monmouth County, NJ.

On exhibit in the library meeting room and lobby exhibit cases through February 28th.

lib_book_signing On Display: Chinese Calligraphy by Artist Lewei Shang Remind Me about this Event   Tell a Friend
    Contact: Reference Staff    732 431 7220 x7222   
   

An exquisite selection of Chinese Calligraphy by Artist & Historian Lewei Shang will be on display in the Library Headquarters, Manalapan, February 1st through the 28th. 

Chinese Calligraphy is a beautiful combination of language and art, with more than a 3,000 year history. Ancient Chinese characters were pictograms, some of which continue to be used today. Over time, the picture-like curves evolved to straight lines to avoid confusion, covering some of the beauty of the art.

In order to uncover the beauty of the Chinese characters, Historian and Artist Lewei Shang has researched and explored the original Chinese character expressions, and tried to emphasize the original pictogram.  Concurrently, Mr. Shang has modified some pictograph characters to create meaningful new graphic representations of traditional the characters. Mr. Shang feels that his adapted artwork helps Chinese characters more easily understood.

Mr. Shang states, "Even though my works are easier to understand than traditional Chinese calligraphy, people may still need a little guidance to fully enjoy them."  Join Mr. Shang during his presentation  of Chinese calligraphy, followed by hands-on lesson creating your own character, using time-honored materials. 

In conjunction with his display, Mr. Shang is presenting a hands-on Workshop on February 4 at 7pm. This workshop is free, but registration is required. Online registration is available by clicking the link below:

    Contact: Reference Staff   732 431 7220 x7222   
   

With only traditional art to provide an image of George Washington, is it any wonder that we see the Father of Our Country as a somber, severe, stone-faced icon? Biographers of that time seemed to reject any anecdotes that might cast a "common-man"  shadow on the First President's image. However, throughout his life, Washington possessed a great sense of humor! Historian and author David Martin's stories will bring this to light, through Washington's personal correspondance.  Dr. Martin is always an engaging and entertaining speaker, so please join us for this special event to celebrate Washington's birthday.

Dr. David Martin is the author of more than 25 books on the American Civil War and American Revolution. He has also written numerous magazine articles on these topics. He is the past president of the New Jersey Department of Sons of Union Veterans of the Civil War, and is the current President of the Friends of Monmouth Battlefield, where he gives frequent lectures and tours.

Directed by Wesley Ruggles

Starring Jean Arthur, Fred MacMurray, Melvyn Douglas, Harry Davenport, Edgar Buchanan

When Bill Cardew (Fred MacMurray) goes missing, his ship lost at sea, his wife, Vicky (Jean Arthur), assumes he is dead. A year later, she is married to Bill's old business partner, Henry Lowndes (Melvyn Douglas). But, of course, it turns out that Bill isn't dead, he was just shipwrecked. When he arrives back in town, he is shocked to see his wife with another man. While Bill expects Vicky to dump Harry and return to him, Vicky toys with the idea of staying married to both men.

The Sounds of the South

Isis is a child who is filled with the joy of life and years for the horizon, while her grandmother urges her to stop dreaming and instead work around the house. Isis has earned the nickname "Isis the joyful" among the neighbors, but her grandmother seeks to restrain the child's exuberance and orders her to sit on the porch like a lady rather than romp with the dogs in the yard.

Forever under-appreciated and melancholy, Heinrich is a young poet in Romantic Era Berlin who determines his best way out of despair is to end it all, and he sets about finding a woman to join him in his predetermined departure. Recently diagnosed with a terminal illness, the well-off but unremarkable Henrietta, fascinated by Heinrich's controversial "The Marquise of O," finds his offer intriguing, if a bit strange. And yet, she agrees to navigate the uncharted journey with him, at once awkward and enlightening for them both. Rather than a declaration of passionate devotion, Amour Fou - inspired by  Heinrich von Kleist and Henrietta Vogel - goes against expectations to become a wry and curious denunciation of dying for love. Directed by Jessica Hausner.  Starring Christian Friedel, Birte Schnoeink, and Stephan Grossman. From Austria. In German with English subtitles.

Forever under-appreciated and melancholy, Heinrich is a young poet in Romantic Era Berlin who determines his best way out of despair is to end it all, and he sets about finding a woman to join him in his predetermined departure. Recently diagnosed with a terminal illness, the well-off but unremarkable Henrietta, fascinated by Heinrich's controversial "The Marquise of O," finds his offer intriguing, if a bit strange. And yet, she agrees to navigate the uncharted journey with him, at once awkward and enlightening for them both. Rather than a declaration of passionate devotion, Amour Fou - inspired by  Heinrich von Kleist and Henrietta Vogel - goes against expectations to become a wry and curious denunciation of dying for love. Directed by Jessica Hausner.  Starring Christian Friedel, Birte Schnoeink, and Stephan Grossman. From Austria. In German with English subtitles. Directed by Jessica Hausner.  Starring Christian Friedel, Birte Schnoeink, and Stephan Grossman. From Austria. In German with English subtitles.

lib_book_quill 10:30 AM  -  12:00 PM Behind the Beautiful Forevers: Life, Death and Hope in a Mumbai Undercity by Katherine Boo Remind Me about this Event   Tell a Friend
    Contact:    732-431-7220 Ext7222   
   

Annawadi is a makeshift settlement in the shadow of luxury hotels near the Mumbai airport, and as India starts to prosper, Annawadians are electric with hope. Abdul, a reflective and enterprising Muslim teenager, sees “a fortune beyond counting” in the recyclable garbage that richer people throw away. Asha, a woman of formidable wit and deep scars from a childhood in rural poverty, has identified an alternate route to the middle class: political corruption. With a little luck, her sensitive, beautiful daughter—Annawadi’s “most-everything girl”—will soon become its first female college graduate. And even the poorest Annawadians, like Kalu, a fifteen-year-old scrap-metal thief, believe themselves inching closer to the good lives and good times they call “the full enjoy.”

But then Abdul the garbage sorter is falsely accused in a shocking tragedy; terror and a global recession rock the city; and suppressed tensions over religion, caste, sex, power and economic envy turn brutal. As the tenderest individual hopes intersect with the greatest global truths, the true contours of a competitive age are revealed. And so, too, are the imaginations and courage of the people of Annawadi.

With intelligence, humor, and deep insight into what connects human beings to one another in an era of tumultuous change, Behind the Beautiful Forevers carries the reader headlong into one of the twenty-first century’s hidden worlds, and into the lives of people impossible to forget.

When the train resumes, Iris suffers a bout of unconsciousness and wakes to find the old woman has disappeared. The other passengers ominously deny Miss Froy ever existed, so Iris begins to investigate with another traveler (Michael Redgrave) and, as the pair sleuth, romantic sparks fly.

Join us for a special lecture, accompanied by song, in honor of African American History month. 

America's founding documents proclaimed equality and liberty, yet strengthened the institution of slavery.  Tragically, this contradiction resisted every compromise and led to a Civil War.  For a time, Constitutional Amendments eradicated legal barriers between Black and White.  Southern states, however, built a new wall called Jim Crow.  In 1955, the citizens of Montgomery, Alabama attacked Jim Crow, not with armies or bullets, but with discipline, love, and the inspiration of a 26 year old pastor.  Martin Luther King Jr. and the participants of the Montgomery Bus Boycott provide us all lessons that love is greater than war, and that lasting resolution can be found above every barrier.   

Craig Uplinger is a teacher of United States History at Marlboro High School, a James Madison Fellow, and a member of the Phi Alpha Theta National Historical Honor Society.  He will be joined by his wife and daughter, Jney and Mackenzie Uplinger, who will sing "Lord, Don't Move the Mountain", "How I Got Over" and "Ain't Gonna Let Nobody Turn Me 'Round".  They have both performed locally with the Phoenix and Premier Theater companies.

Eat, Pray, Love: One Woman’s Search for Everything Across Italy, India and Indonesia by Elizabeth Gilbert

This beautifully written, heartfelt memoir touched a nerve among both readers and reviewers. Elizabeth Gilbert tells how she made the difficult choice to leave behind all the trappings of modern American success (marriage, house in the country, career) and find, instead, what she truly wanted from life. Setting out for a year to study three different aspects of her nature amid three different cultures, Gilbert explored the art of pleasure in Italy and the art of devotion in India, and then a balance between the two on the Indonesian island of Bali. By turns rapturous and rueful, this wise and funny author (whom Booklist calls “Anne Lamott’s hip, yoga- practicing, footloose younger sister”) is poised to garner yet more adoring fans. -Google Books

Join us for this unforgettable show, set just decades ago in America when two African Americans challenged the racism rampant in the land, from the unlikely barricades of the classical concert stage. Both Paul Robeson, who hailed from Princeton, graduated from Rutgers, and spent his last years in West Philadelphia, and Marian Anderson, the pride of South Philadelphia, became world famous singers at a time when crossing color lines was risky business.  Robeson - also a famous actor and human rights activist - endured the added oppression of the McCarthy era witch hunt. But in very different ways, they both inspired America to become more tolerant.

Hear their stories - and glorious music - in this unique tribute performed by Follow the Drinking Gourd, a group named for a song used to guide slaves to freedom on the Underground Railroad. Follow the Drinking Gourd is composed of Diane Goldsmith on piano,  Ivan Woods (bass) as Paul Robeson and soprano Shannon Hunt as Marian Anderson.

This program is co-sponsored by the Court Street School Centennial Committee and the NAACP of Freehold.

"Follow the Drinking Gourd provides an historical performance that both entertains and educates their audiences. The group pays tribute to the African American experience and offers a window into history offering a performance unlike any we have showcased at the Paul Robeson Center for the Arts. A program by Follow the Drinking Gourd is an excellent opportunity to hear music of America’s past while also acknowledging the struggles and trials that shaped the 'Titans of Song,'" Michael La Riccia, Paul Robeson Center for the Arts, Princeton

rec_paintpalette02 Art Exhibit: Paintings by Anne Cooper Remind Me about this Event   Tell a Friend
    Contact:    732-264-7164   
   

Much of the work on display was painted locally and plein air, that is painted outside on location (in varying degrees of good weather). This is a fun challenge to capture color and light as it continually changes, completely transforming the subject matter as time passes during the day. Anne was inspired by the work of many painters who have approached their work in this way. In returning to the same locations over time, she became more observant and appreciative of the subtle shifts over time in the seasonal and life cycle transformations of her subject matter. 

Anne graduated from the University of the Arts in Philadelphia, PA with a BFA in Illustration. She is a current member of the American Medallic Sculpture Association (AMSA), and FIDEM the International Art Medal Federation. She is a freelance member of the Paint Crew for Reaper Miniatures and also currently painting miniature figures for Fairytale Games Battle Royale.

Anne has exhibited her work nationally at Medialia Gallery NYC, the New York Public Library, the ANA Money Museum in Colorado, and the Sol Mednick Gallery in Philadelphia. Internationally she has shown her work with FIDEM in their biennial juried shows in Japan, Germany, France, Portugal, Bulgaria and Poland. Her work is in many private collections internationally. 

More of her work can be found here: annecooper.deviantart.com/gallery/

College student Joe Talbert has the modest goal of completing a writing assignment for an English class. His task is to interview a stranger and write a brief biography of the person. With deadlines looming, Joe heads to a nearby nursing home to find a willing subject. There he meets Carl Iverson, and soon nothing in Joe's life is ever the same. Carl is a dying Vietnam veteran--and a convicted murderer. With only a few months to live, he has been medically paroled to a nursing home, after spending thirty years in prison for the crimes of rape and murder.

As Joe writes about Carl's life, especially Carl's valor in Vietnam, he cannot reconcile the heroism of the soldier with the despicable acts of the convict. Joe, along with his skeptical female neighbor, throws himself into uncovering the truth, but he is hamstrung in his efforts by having to deal with his dangerously dysfunctional mother, the guilt of leaving his autistic brother vulnerable, and a haunting childhood memory. Thread by thread, Joe unravels the tapestry of Carl’s conviction. But as he and Lila dig deeper into the circumstances of the crime, the stakes grow higher. Will Joe discover the truth before it’s too late to escape the fallout?

This book discussion will be moderated by Colts Neck Librarian Stephanie Laurino. Refreshments will be served and all are welcome to attend, however registration is preferred. Stop by or call the library to reserve your copy of the book today.

College student Joe Talbert has the modest goal of completing a writing assignment for an English class. His task is to interview a stranger and write a brief biography of the person. With deadlines looming, Joe heads to a nearby nursing home to find a willing subject. There he meets Carl Iverson, and soon nothing in Joe's life is ever the same. Carl is a dying Vietnam veteran--and a convicted murderer. With only a few months to live, he has been medically paroled to a nursing home, after spending thirty years in prison for the crimes of rape and murder.

As Joe writes about Carl's life, especially Carl's valor in Vietnam, he cannot reconcile the heroism of the soldier with the despicable acts of the convict. Joe, along with his skeptical female neighbor, throws himself into uncovering the truth, but he is hamstrung in his efforts by having to deal with his dangerously dysfunctional mother, the guilt of leaving his autistic brother vulnerable, and a haunting childhood memory. Thread by thread, Joe unravels the tapestry of Carl’s conviction. But as he and Lila dig deeper into the circumstances of the crime, the stakes grow higher. Will Joe discover the truth before it’s too late to escape the fallout?

This book discussion will be moderated by Colts Neck Librarian Stephanie Laurino. Refreshments will be served and all are welcome to attend, however registration is preferred. Stop by or call the library to reserve your copy of the book today.

In the mountains of Guerrero, Mexico, women must fend for themselves, as their men have left to seek opportunities elsewhere. Here in the shadow of the drug war, bodies turn up on the outskirts of the village to be taken back to the earth by scorpions and snakes. 
 
While her mother waits in vain for her husband’s return, Ladydi and her friends dream of a future that holds more promise than mere survival, finding humor, solidarity and fun in the face of so much tragedy. An illuminating and affecting portrait of women in rural Mexico, and a stunning exploration of the hidden consequences of an unjust war, Prayers for the Stolen is an unforgettable story of friendship, family, and determination.
