misc_rivers In The Beginning CMWCA Art Exhibit Remind Me about this Event   Tell a Friend
    Contact: Kim King   9785975804   MeetingHallGallery@gmail.com
   

Elemental works—rocks, leaves, and layers--inspire the new show “In the Beginning” by the Central Massachusetts Women’s Caucus for Art at the Townsend Library Meeting Hall Gallery.   The show is in collaboration with poet Christian Riefsteck, whose work inspired several of the pieces in the show.    Artists include Gail Bloom, Gail Hoar, C.M. Judge, Sue Norton Poplin, Marchia Green Santore, Helen Obermeyer Simmons, Sylvia Vander Sluis, Elsa Voelcker, Susan Wadsworth and Jennifer Weigel.

The Women’s Caucus for Art is a national organization with regional branches, and the Central Massachusetts group has just been reinvigorated in the last few years.  Gail Bloom, the president, is connected with Reifsteck through their association with poet Dona Stein and 7 Bridges Writers Collaborative. They are intrigued by the idea of dialogue between the arts often experimented with in NY during the 1940s and 50s when Manhattan was a bee hive of creative intensity and dialogue.  Bloom sees this exercise of Ekprasis, in collaboration with Christian Riefsteck, as giving us as members of the Central Mass Women’s Caucus for Art an opportunity to continue that valued tradition of collaboration and dialogue, a true luxury.         

For Elsa Voelcker, her new images are wider landscapes with blur caused by panning a scene while in a moving car.  Sylvia Vander Sluis’ collages create metaphors for earth, water, wind, and fire. She creates sensual, textured surfaces and patterns, which are influenced by what she sees around her – reflections on water, fish swimming around her while snorkeling, and craggy rocks along the seashore, for example.   Multi-media collage is also essential in Sue J. Norton Poplin’s work; she uses these forms and paintings to portray her inner reaction to her outer world.

Deep wonders of the natural world, so beautifully expressed in Reifstock’s poetry, also inform C.M. Judge’s paintings, which are meditations on elements of the eternal. Susan Wadsworth’s work shows ancient rocks, volcanoes and the architecture of ruined churches and cathedrals.   Helen Obermeyer Simmons mixed media collages are inspired by family history and the landscapes of her life.  Texture, color, and imagery from locales including Arizona, West Virginia and Nova Scotia inform her work. 

The exhibition is open from September 2 – 29 in the Townsend Library Meeting Hall Gallery 12 Dudley Road, Townsend, Massachusetts, (978) 597-1714.  It is closed Sundays but open Monday 10-3, Tuesday and Wednesday 10-9, Thursday 2-9, Friday 10-5, and Saturday 10-2. Please check event calendar for other events in the Meeting Hall.

Dinner and a Movie

Bring your dinner and watch the new version of The Jungle Book!

 

In this reimagining of the classic collection of stories by Rudyard Kipling, director Jon Favreau uses visually stunning CGI to create the community of animals surrounding Mowgli (Neel Sethi), a human boy adopted by a pack of wolves. The appearance of a villainous tiger named Shere Khan (voiced by Idris Elba) forces Mowgli's guardian, the panther Bagheera (Ben Kingsley), to shepherd the child to safety in the "man village." Along the way, the boy meets an affable, lazy bear named Baloo (Bill Murray), as well as a snake with hypnotic powers (Scarlett Johansson) and an orangutan (Christopher Walken) who wants to harness the power of fire. Lupita Nyong'o, Giancarlo Esposito,and Garry Shandling also lend their voices to this adventure tale.

misc_usflag 7:00 PM  -  8:00 PM Defining the Machine Remind Me about this Event   Tell a Friend
    Contact: Stacy Schuttler   978 597-1714   sschuttler@cwmars.org
   

Defining the machine is a non-partisan, exciting and informative presentation that not only identifies Washington D.C politics as ineffective and out of step with most mainstream Americans, but exactly why this is the case.  Pat will explain some of the causes of the extreme ideological beliefs, polarization, and gridlock coming from Washington, as well as steps regarding how to fix it.

 

A large focus of this presentation demonstrates how members of congress take money they raise from us and then give this money to political parties as well as other members of congress.  This isn’t just the norm, it’s required. This process establishes a political pay to play system, which in turn creates a polarized two-party, two belief system, resulting in a divided House of Representatives. Not a collection of individual representative’s which congress was meant to be.

 

Defining the machine will guide the audience often with humorous examples through the history of congressional committees, failed government attempts at reform, and mechanisms for fundraising such as PAC’s, Leadership PAC’s, and Super-PAC’s.

 

Pat was a former Independent candidate for congress in 2010, with over 25 years of experience working within both public and private mental health settings.  Currently, Pat works for the Massachusetts Department of Mental Health.  Pat’s experiences as a trained clinician has helped to not only treat the symptoms of a problem, but to identify and understand the complex causes of the problem. Using this information the goal becomes the straightest path to both stability and success.

For thousands of years, humans have relied on plants to create rope, clothing, baskets, shelter, and tools.

We have collected these plant fibers from the wild landscape to make the necessities to keep us alive.

In this class, Tim “PrimiTim” Swanson will teach us how to identify and use different plants to create natural rope and cordage.

All ages!

Please register.

Class is free, but donations are warmly welcome!

Class will be held mostly outside, please dress accordingly.

About Tim:

Ever since I can remember, being one with nature has been my passion and my purpose. As a child, I was often found outside looking for bugs, singing to birds, and hanging out in the high branches of trees. I have been learning and practicing primitive skills for over 15 years and have developed a strong desire to share my knowledge with others. This is because I wish to see a world in which humans can live with the natural world in harmony and peace. Come hang out with me for a fun, engaging, and informative experience in the woods! My teaching style accommodates children, teens, and adults because of my playful and light-hearted excitement, along with informative and in depth explanations of the natural world.

Dark Journeys: Exploring Urban Legends with Jeff Belenger

 

Bloody Mary, the Hook, White Lady ghosts, the weight of the soul, gravity hills, and so much more. Why do these legends pop up all over the world and force us to explore them?

Jeff Belanger is the leading lecturer on legends and paranormal phenomena. Jeff brings a suitcase full of evidence, a multimedia presentation, over 18 years of experience, and a lot of personality to the subject of the unexplained making it both entertaining and accessible to a wide audience.

In addition to being the author of more than a dozen books published in six languages, Jeff has been on countless radio and television programs discussing the topic. He's lectured at many conferences, libraries, colleges, universities, and other functions around the world. In 2014, he gave his first TEDx talk in New York City, he spoke at MENSA's national conference, and he's an Emmy-nominated television host and producer.

Ever look back and think about how listening to music was an activity all on its own? 

Remember scouring over the artwork on the cover of your new vinyl LP and hoping the lyrics were printed on the inner sleeve.  Now is your chance to spin some vinyl on the turntable in a group setting and immerse yourself in the music.  The 33 1/2 club at the Townsend Public Library will meet and listen to two classic LP's.  Discussion will focus on, but certainly will not be limited to, the time period, the tracks, the album cover art and the artist.  Join in for a listen to this months edition.

Join Dave Schuttler and Bradley Sherwood for an evening of music and conversation!

This month we are reading The Search for Wondla by Tony DiTerlizzi

About the book:

When a marauder destroys the underground sanctuary that Eva Nine was raised in by the robot Muthr, the twelve-year-year-old girl is forced to flee aboveground. Eva Nine is searching for anyone else like her, for she knows that other humans exist, because of an item she treasures—a scrap of cardboard on which is depicted a young girl, an adult, and a robot, with the strange word, “WondLa.” Tony DiTerlizzi honors traditional children’s literature in this totally original space age adventure: one that is as complex as an alien planet, but as simple as a child’s wish for a place to belong.

Breathtaking two-color illustrations throughout reveal another dimension of Tony DiTerlizzi’s vision, and, for those readers with a webcam, the book also features Augmented Reality in several places, revealing additional information about Eva Nine’s world.

John Adams by David McCullough
 
Join us as we read through the presidents of the United States!
The idea is to not only learn a few things, but to get a deeper understanding the role the presidency has played in this nation's history!
In the midst of a recent discussion, we came to the realization that our knowledge of much of American history was wanting. We decided to undertake a journey through the American presidency from beginning to end starting with George Washington, reading a biography of each president in the order they served. The hope is that this will acquaint us with not only each President, but also the history of the time in which they lived and died.

About Tim:

Ever since I can remember, being one with nature has been my passion and my purpose. As a child, I was often found outside looking for bugs, singing to birds, and hanging out in the high branches of trees. I have been learning and practicing primitive skills for over 15 years and have developed a strong desire to share my knowledge with others. This is because I wish to see a world in which humans can live with the natural world in harmony and peace. Come hang out with me for a fun, engaging, and informative experience in the woods! My teaching style accommodates children, teens, and adults because of my playful and light-hearted excitement, along with informative and in depth explanations of the natural world.

The Delvena Theatre Company will be presenting Truly Eleanor at the Townsend Public Library, 12 Dudley Road, Townsend, on Thursday, November 10, at 7:00 PM.

 

Here in this 3-person, live performance, Eleanor shares some of her most private and meaningful moments - her lonely childhood; her joyous courtship/marriage with her fifth cousin, Franklin; her devastation at Franklin's love affair with her social secretary; her resolve to make him president after his polio diagnosis; her involvement in his presidency; and her eventual triumph at the United Nations.  "Truly Eleanor” takes a candid look at our greatest First Lady's courage and at her great contributions to human rights and liberty for all.  The cast will open up for discussion of the subject matter after the performance.

 

The Delvena Theatre Company has been doing to-go shows for the last several years at various venues throughout the New England area. The Company was founded in 1992, and prior to “going on the road” performed at different locations throughout Massachusetts, most often at the Boston Center for the Arts.  Delvena was nominated for five Independent Reviewers of New England awards.  Its production of 'Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?' was on Theatre Mirror's Best List for acting, directing and production.  Presentations of 'Anna Weiss' and 'Beyond Therapy' were included on Theatre Mirror's best play list and 'Blue Heart' was placed on Aisle Say's best list.

The 33 1/3 Club

Ever look back and think about how listening to music was an activity all on its own? 

Remember scouring over the artwork on the cover of your new vinyl LP and hoping the lyrics were printed on the inner sleeve.  Now is your chance to spin some vinyl on the turntable in a group setting and immerse yourself in the music.  The 33 1/2 club at the Townsend Public Library will meet and listen to two classic LP's.  Discussion will focus on, but certainly will not be limited to, the time period, the tracks, the album cover art and the artist.  Join in for a listen to this months edition.

Join Dave Schuttler and Bradley Sherwood for an evening of music and conversation!

This month we are reading The War That Saved My Life by Kimberly Brubaker Bradley

About The War That Saved My Life

*2016 Newbery Honor book
*Winner of the 2016 Schneider Family Book Award 

This New York Times bestseller is an exceptionally moving story of triumph against all odds set during World War 2. For fans of Counting by 7s.
 

Nine-year-old Ada has never left her one-room apartment. Her mother is too humiliated by Ada’s twisted foot to let her outside. So when her little brother Jamie is shipped out of London to escape the war, Ada doesn’t waste a minute—she sneaks out to join him.
 
So begins a new adventure of Ada, and for Susan Smith, the woman who is forced to take the two kids in. As Ada teaches herself to ride a pony, learns to read, and watches for German spies, she begins to trust Susan—and Susan begins to love Ada and Jamie. But in the end, will their bond be enough to hold them together through wartime? Or will Ada and her brother fall back into the cruel hands of their mother?

Class topic: Tracking

About Tim:

Ever since I can remember, being one with nature has been my passion and my purpose. As a child, I was often found outside looking for bugs, singing to birds, and hanging out in the high branches of trees. I have been learning and practicing primitive skills for over 15 years and have developed a strong desire to share my knowledge with others. This is because I wish to see a world in which humans can live with the natural world in harmony and peace. Come hang out with me for a fun, engaging, and informative experience in the woods! My teaching style accommodates children, teens, and adults because of my playful and light-hearted excitement, along with informative and in depth explanations of the natural world.

holiday_wreath 7:00 PM  -  9:00 PM Silent Film - Live Music with Jeff Rapsis Remind Me about this Event   Tell a Friend
   

New Hampshire native Jeff Rapsis plays live music for silent films at about 100 screenings a year. Sometimes it’s a classic he’s accompanied before, such as Charlie Chaplin’s “The Kid” (1921) or Fritz Lang’s “Metropolis” (1927). Other times, the film is new to him. Either way, it’s a “high wire act,” as Rapsis puts it. He improvises a score in real time as the movie rolls, responding to the emotions and actions along with the audience.

Using a digital synthesizer, Rapsis re-creates, as he puts it, the “movie score” texture of a full orchestra. Improvising, he says, is “the best way to come up with just the right music for just that moment, and when it all works, there’s nothing like it.”

This month we are reading The Wild Robot by Peter Brown

About the book:

 

Can a robot survive in the wilderness?

When robot Roz opens her eyes for the first time, she discovers that she is alone on a remote, wild island. She has no idea how she got there or what her purpose is--but she knows she needs to survive. After battling a fierce storm and escaping a vicious bear attack, she realizes that her only hope for survival is to adapt to her surroundings and learn from the island's unwelcoming animal inhabitants.

As Roz slowly befriends the animals, the island starts to feel like home--until, one day, the robot's mysterious past comes back to haunt her.

From bestselling and award-winning author and illustrator Peter Brown comes a heartwarming and action-packed novel about what happens when nature and technology collide.

American Sphinx: The Character of Thomas Jefferson by Joseph J. Ellis
 
Join us as we read through the presidents of the United States!
The idea is to not only learn a few things, but to get a deeper understanding the role the presidency has played in this nation's history!
In the midst of a recent discussion, we came to the realization that our knowledge of much of American history was wanting. We decided to undertake a journey through the American presidency from beginning to end starting with George Washington, reading a biography of each president in the order they served. The hope is that this will acquaint us with not only each President, but also the history of the time in which they lived and died.

This month we are reading Countdown by Deborah Wiles

About the book:

A time that changed the world.

A time that changed Franny’s life.

Franny Chapman just wants some peace. But that’s hard to get when her best friend is feuding with her, her sister has disappeared, and her uncle is fighting an old war in his head. Her saintly younger brother is no help, and the cute boy across the street only complicates things. Worst of all, everyone is walking around just waiting for a bomb to fall.

It’s 1962, and it seems that the whole country is living in fear. When President Kennedy goes on television to say that Russia is sending nuclear missiles to Cuba, it only gets worse. Franny doesn’t know how to deal with what’s going on in the world — no more than she knows how to deal with what’s going on with her family and friends. But somehow she’s got to make it through.

Countdown features a captivating story interspersed with footage from 1962. Deborah Wiles has created a documentary novel that will put you right alongside Franny as she navigates a dangerous time in both her history and our history.

This month we are reading Secrets of Selkie Bay by Shelley Moore Thomas

About the book:

In their present-day tourist trap of an Irish seaside town, famed for its supposed involvement with selkies in the past, three sisters are faced with the sudden disappearance of their mother. Crushed by the loss, their father is struggling to carry on. To make matters worse, there are rumors afloat in the village that their mother herself is a selkie who has now shed her human form and gone back to sea. As Cordie Sullivan, the oldest daughter, tries to learn more about her mother's vanishing, she must find the strength to help her family move ahead, even as she discovers an increasing number of clues that point to a hidden island off the coast—a mythical kingdom of the selkies.

From Shelley Moore Thomas, the author of The Seven Tales of Trinket, a Kirkus Reviews Best Children’s Book of the Year, The Secrets of Selkie Bay is a powerful story about magic, family, grief, and hope.

“Explores grief and loss, as well as the comforting power of stories and belief in magic that can chase away sadness. . . . The fanciful folktales interspersed throughout the novel add plenty of charm.” -Booklist

"Especially endearing are the multitude of little pixie seals that come swimming to the island. . . . Here all elusive threads are woven into a satisfying ending and the recognition that an endangered species has renewed itself near the island." -Children's Literature

About the book:

Pax and Peter have been inseparable ever since Peter rescued him as a kit. But one day, the unimaginable happens: Peter's dad enlists in the military and makes him return the fox to the wild.

At his grandfather's house, three hundred miles away from home, Peter knows he isn't where he should be—with Pax. He strikes out on his own despite the encroaching war, spurred by love, loyalty, and grief, to be reunited with his fox.

Meanwhile Pax, steadfastly waiting for his boy, embarks on adventures and discoveries of his own.
