SPLASH! The Art of Portsmouth’s Young People
March 12 – April 11 at Portsmouth Public Library

SPLASH! Artists’ Reception 
Sunday March 12 | 1:30 – 3:30 PM 

This exhibit will feature a wide array of stunning creations that showcase the innovative, inspiring minds of our Visual Arts students from grades K-12. The Portsmouth Public Library will come alive with art from Dondero, Little Harbour, New Franklin as well as the Portsmouth Middle and High Schools. Come feast your eyes on this dazzling display of two- and three-dimensional artwork which will be featured in the Levenson Community Meeting room and throughout the library. 

This is both a culmination of work since the beginning of the school year as well as a celebration of Youth Art Month. The artwork, hung by art educators of the Portsmouth School Department as well as library staff, vary in style, medium, and materials. Come feast your eyes on works that range from tiny to gigantic such as cyanotype prints, collages, mobiles, weavings, ceramics, sculpture and photography. You will see paintings and drawings done from observation and inspired by artists in a variety of mediums plus much, much more.

Join us for the reception on Sunday, March 12 at 1:30 PM to meet the artists. Refreshments will be provided.

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them
Thursday March 30 | 6:30 PM

2016. Rated PG-13. 133 minutes.

It opens in 1926 as Newt Scamander has just completed a global excursion to find and document an extraordinary array of magical creatures. Arriving in New York for a brief stopover, he might have come and gone without incident, were it not for a No-Maj (American for Muggle) named Jacob, a misplaced magical case, and the escape of some of Newt's fantastic beasts, which could spell trouble for both the wizarding and No-Maj worlds.

Sing!

Set in a world like ours but entirely inhabited by animals, Buster Moon, a dapper koala, presides over a once-grand theater that has fallen on hard times. Buster is an eternal-some, might even say delusional-optimist, who loves his theater above all and will do anything to preserve it. Now faced with the crumbling of his life's ambition, he has one final chance to restore his fading jewel to its former glory by producing the world's greatest singing competition.

Rated PG  1 hour 48 minutes

Free and open to the public.

HOW DO COLLEGES REALLY CHOOSE STUDENTS?

An Inside Look at the College Admissions Process

Wednesday April 12 | 6:30 PM

Speaker:   Wendy Thompson, Westport Educational Consulting

High school students and their parents are invited to an informative, interactive, and entertaining presentation to help families understand the role essays, interviews, standardized testing, extracurricular activities, sports, and other factors play in the admissions decisions colleges make.

Wendy served on the admissions staff at Bowdoin College from 2000-2012, where she evaluated thousands of applications.  Her college and independent school admissions career spans thirty years.  She conducts college planning workshops and has helped students navigate the college search and selection process since 2003.

Portsmouth High School college guidance counselor Shanyn Grenier has helped make this program possible and will be in attendance.

May 31 – Grass by Sheri Tepper

Generations in the future, when humanity has spread to other planets and Earth is ruled by Sanctity, a dour, coercive religion that looks to resurrection of the body by storing cell samples of its communicants, a plague is threatening to wipe out mankind. The only planet that seems to be spared is Grass… it was settled by families of European nobility who live on vast estancias and indulge in the ancient sport of fox hunting--although the horses, hounds and foxes aren't what they what they appear to be.
