Don Gorvett: 25 Years in Portsmouth
A Chronology of Prints and Drawings
at the Portsmouth Public Library

February 1 – March 8
Reception: Wednesday February 3 | 6 – 8 PM


Visit the library between February 1 and March 8 for an exhibit of the work of acclaimed artist Don Gorvett. Gorvett celebrates his 25th year in Portsmouth with a collection of prints showcasing Portsmouth and her maritime environs. Along with some of his rarer prints, you’ll discover numerous drawings usually hidden within the artist’s flat files, wood blocks and color palettes that illustrate the printmaking process. On Wednesday, February 3, the artist will hold a reception and talk about his work.

Gorvett’s Piscataqua Fine Arts Gallery & Studio is in downtown Portsmouth and his Ogunquit Gallery & Studio is in Perkins Cove. He is a graduate of the School of the Boston Museum of Fine Arts, and a past board member of the Boston Printmakers. His works grace the collections of the Addison Gallery of American Art, Boston Athenaeum, the Museum of Fine Art in Boston, the Cape Ann Museum, the Currier Museum of Art, the Farnsworth Art Museum, the Ogunquit Museum of American Art, Peabody Essex Museum, the Portland Museum of Art, the Worcester Art Museum, and numerous corporate and private collections. His Portsmouth gallery showcases his renowned, large-scale reduction woodcuts as well as art by some of New England's most accomplished artists and printmakers. Gorvett has been working in the Seacoast area for over forty years.

Interactive Art Project for all ages!

Draw a self-portrait as best as you can without seeing. What do I look like? Well we all take looking at photographs or looking at ourselves in the mirror for granted, how do we create an image of ourselves without using our sense of sight? Here's an opportunity to put on a blindfold, and have fun!

Memory and creativity definitely take the lead in this task. We learn while doing, and with a good attitude and practice, we can accomplish so much! The professional services provided by The New Hampshire Association for the Blind help people with vision loss to live and thrive on an even bigger scale in their day-to-day lives.  Whether one is learning to use a white cane for mobility, relearning to cook without sight, etc., similar principles are applied with a good attitude, hard work, and training people are living better with vision loss.

Children under 10 need to be supervised by their adult at all times in the library.

January 19: A Year in Provence by Peter Mayle (1990)

The author describes his first 12 months in Provence, after he and his wife have abandoned England for an 18th-century farmhouse in the Luberon Mountains. Throwing themselves into the life of this rural region, they master the local customs, gain partial understanding of their neighbors' patois, overcome the frustrations of French bureaucracy, and learn to deal with workmen who operate on the idiosyncratic Provencal sense of time.

February 16: Astronaut Wives Club by Lily Koppel (2013)

In this entertaining and quirky throwback, journalist Koppel (The Red Leather Diary) revisits the ladies who cheered and bolstered their men to victory in the U.S. space program from the late ’50s through early 1970s, revealing public triumph and rarely private agony. Koppel looks at the history of the race to space, starting with the Mercury Seven of April 1959, and focusing on the wives: e.g., Louise Shepard (wife of Alan), Betty Grissom (Gus) and Annie Glenn (John), young women who wore teased hair, bright lipstick, and cat-eye sunglasses, and towed numerous small children.

The Portsmouth Public Library's Speculative Fiction Book Club is trying something new! Instead of meeting at the library, we will be holding our club at Earth Eagle Brewings on High St. in Portsmouth.

Whenever possible copies of each title are borrowed from New Hampshire libraries in advance. Books are available for check out at the library (or at the meetings) with your PPL card. 

For those of you unfamiliar with the term "speculative fiction," it emcompasses fantasy, sci-fi, horror, and any other books that pose the question "What if...?" 

Wednesday February 24: The Golden Compass by Philip Pullman

Brought up ignorant of her true identity, 11-year-old Lyra goes on a quest from East Anglia to the top of the world in search of her kidnapped playmate Roger and her imprisoned uncle, Lord Asriel… Here Earth is one of only five planets in the solar system, every human has a daemon (the soul embodied as an animal familiar) and, in a time similar to our late 19th century, Oxford scholars and agents of the supreme Calvinist Church are in a race to unleash the power that will enable them to cross the bridge to a parallel universe.

Synopses from Publishers Weekly.

Writings Black and White: The perils and pleasures of writing multi-cultura and historical fiction

Presenter: Jodi Daynard

If you could time-travel to Portsmouth during the Revolutionary War, what would it look like?  How did blacks and whites relate to one another in their daily lives?  Come hear about OUR OWN COUNTRY, the story of one young woman who dared to cross the racial divide.  Hear too, about the challenges author Jodi Daynard faced while endeavoring to create authentic protraits of both slavery and of interracial love.

Jodi Daynard is the internationally know author of 'The Midwife's Revolt' and 'The Place Within'.

Public is invited

January 11: Pomegranate Soup by Marsha Mehran (2005)

Beautiful strangers bring exotic recipes to town in Mehran's foodie-lit debut. The Irish hamlet of Ballinacroagh is the unlikely new home for three Iranian sisters and their new Babylon Cafe. Twenty-seven-year-old Marjan, the most skilled in the kitchen; Bahar, the tentative middle sister; and Layla, the charming teenager, fled the Iranian revolution and, after some years in London, have arrived determined to succeed.

February 8: Major Pettigrew’s Last Stand by Helen Simonson (2010)

In her charming debut novel, Simonson tells the tale of Maj. Ernest Pettigrew, an honor-bound Englishman and widower, and the very embodiment of duty and pride. As the novel opens, the major is mourning the loss of his younger brother, Bertie, and attempting to get his hands on Bertie's antique Churchill shotgun—part of a set that the boys' father split between them, but which Bertie's widow doesn't want to hand over.

March 14: The Swallows of Kabul by Yasmina Khadra (2004)

Khadra is the nom de plume for Algerian army officer Mohamed Moulessehoul, who illustrates the effects of repression on a pair of Kabul couples… Like Khaled Hosseini's The Kite Runner, this is a superb meditation on the fate of the Afghan people.

January 11: Pomegranate Soup by Marsha Hehran (2005)

Beautiful strangers bring exotic recipes to town in Mehran's foodie-lit debut. The Irish hamlet of Ballinacroagh is the unlikely new home for three Iranian sisters and their new Babylon Cafe. Twenty-seven-year-old Marjan, the most skilled in the kitchen; Bahar, the tentative middle sister; and Layla, the charming teenager, fled the Iranian revolution and, after some years in London, have arrived determined to succeed.

February 8: Major Pettigrew’s Last Stand by Helen Simonson (2010)

In her charming debut novel, Simonson tells the tale of Maj. Ernest Pettigrew, an honor-bound Englishman and widower, and the very embodiment of duty and pride. As the novel opens, the major is mourning the loss of his younger brother, Bertie, and attempting to get his hands on Bertie's antique Churchill shotgun—part of a set that the boys' father split between them, but which Bertie's widow doesn't want to hand over.

March 14: The Swallows of Kabul by Yasmina Khadra (2004)

Khadra is the nom de plume for Algerian army officer Mohamed Moulessehoul, who illustrates the effects of repression on a pair of Kabul couples… Like Khaled Hosseini's The Kite Runner, this is a superb meditation on the fate of the Afghan people.

All synopses from Publisher’s Weekly.

January 11: Pomegranate Soup by Marsha Hehran (2005)

Beautiful strangers bring exotic recipes to town in Mehran's foodie-lit debut. The Irish hamlet of Ballinacroagh is the unlikely new home for three Iranian sisters and their new Babylon Cafe. Twenty-seven-year-old Marjan, the most skilled in the kitchen; Bahar, the tentative middle sister; and Layla, the charming teenager, fled the Iranian revolution and, after some years in London, have arrived determined to succeed.

February 8: Major Pettigrew’s Last Stand by Helen Simonson (2010)

In her charming debut novel, Simonson tells the tale of Maj. Ernest Pettigrew, an honor-bound Englishman and widower, and the very embodiment of duty and pride. As the novel opens, the major is mourning the loss of his younger brother, Bertie, and attempting to get his hands on Bertie's antique Churchill shotgun—part of a set that the boys' father split between them, but which Bertie's widow doesn't want to hand over.

March 14: The Swallows of Kabul by Yasmina Khadra (2004)

Khadra is the nom de plume for Algerian army officer Mohamed Moulessehoul, who illustrates the effects of repression on a pair of Kabul couples… Like Khaled Hosseini's The Kite Runner, this is a superb meditation on the fate of the Afghan people.

All synopses from Publisher’s Weekly.
