Wednesday September 13, 2017 -  Thursday October 26, 2017
   9:00 AM  -  9:00 PM In The Gallery
Hokusai and the Heyoke
by Nancy Kirk
 
   

Using animals, symbols, and references of Native American origin,
the images are combinations of different blocks that come together in monotype prints.
The results are pictographs commenting on the human condition as it relates to our
interactions with each other and the planet Earth.

Nancy Kirk has a passion for abstract and traditional Japanese art. Her studies reach from The California College of Arts and Crafts to the opera in Florence, Italy to the Parsons School of Design. She has worked as a scenic painter for opera and ballet, illustrator, painter, and muralist. She worked to assist in the restoration of historic Broadway theatre murals and was asked to add original work to the Golden Theater in New York City. Her residential mural work shows the influence of the Hudson River School of painters and graces many beautiful homes on the North Shore of Long Island.

Co-sponsored Event By The Great Neck Public Schools
and The Great Neck Library

If you don't think it can happen to someone you care about, think again.  Addictions and overdoses can happen to anyone.

Opioid addiction is a national health crisis which has affected many families in our area. The most up-to-date statistics reveal that over 120 Americans die each day due to opioid and heroin overdoses.  For the first time, this number exceeds gun deaths.

The Total Community Involvement committee of the Great Neck Public School UPTC is sponsoring this presentation with an expert panel. The moderator is Jacqueline Harounian of North Shore Action, which is also a sponsor of the event. Panelists include Cathy Samuels from CASA Manhasset; Maria Elisa Cuadra, CEO, COPAY Inc., Detective Pamela Stark of the Nassau County Police Task Force on Opioids; Amanda Cioffi from LICADD; and Zachary Goldfarb, EMT from Vigilant Fire Company.

Parents and Teens will also hear from and meet a Long Island recent high school graduate who is currently in recovery from opioid addiction.

Question and Answer session following Panel Discussion.

Opening Reception
Spirits of Autumn
 
   

Members of the Seiko Group created these twenty Ikebana floral arrangements on display.  Ikebana is the art of Japanese flower arrangement. It is more than simply putting flowers in a container. It is a disciplined art form in which the arrangement is a living thing, where nature and humanity are brought together. “Ike” means to arrange, and “bana” (originates from the word Hana) means flowers. Ikebana dates back to the 6th century when priests first decorated flowers at temples. These were large arrangements that took a couple of days to complete.  Ikenobo Senkei, Buddhist priest, created the earliest form of Ikebana. Now there are some thousands of different schools that have developed for teaching Ikebana. Ohara, Sogetsu, Ichiyo, Rhusei-ha and Ikenobo are popular schools for this art form in Japan.

   7:00 PM  -  8:30 PM Author Dan Paisner  
   

Daniel Paisner is one of the busiest collaborators in publishing, having had a hand in the autobiographies and memoirs of some of our best-known actors, athletes, politicians, television personalities and "ordinary" individuals who have managed to conquer extraordinary situations.  He has written over sixty books, on topics ranging from business and sports, to politics and popular culture, including fifteen New York Times bestsellers. 

Perhaps his most notable collaboration has been the best-selling account of a New York City firefighter's epic tour of duty at the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001, Last Man Down, written with FDNY Battalion Commander Richard Picciotto. He is well-known among publishers for his work on inspirational and motivational memoirs, helping to shed new and compelling light on various aspects of the human condition through the uplifting accounts of others.  The Girl in the Green Sweater: A Life in Holocaust’s Shadow, a memoir with Krystyna Chiger, chronicles her family’s horrific ordeal in the sewers of the Polish city of Lvov during the German occupation, and makes an important contribution to the literature of the Holocaust.

Books will be available for sale and signing.

   2:00 PM  -  3:00 PM Beyond the Yellow Brick Road: The Story of The Wizard of Oz as a Political Allegory
Thomas Egan
 
   

Beyond The Yellow Brick Road is an analysis of the classic movie Wizard of Oz. This discussion takes us beyond the story line of the script and into one of pop culture’s most famous allegories.    Hidden within its words and characters is a tale of American political and cultural movements from the turn of the 20th century.  With the Populism Movement as the central backdrop, this discussion analyzes the correlation between American life in the late 1800s and life in the fictional land of Oz.    Actual historical figures - such as two time presidential candidate and Scopes Trial prosecutor, William Jennings Bryan - are also discussed as part of a larger meaning behind this classic tale. 

Thomas Egan is a professor of American History at Briarcliffe College.

   2:00 PM  -  3:30 PM They All Sang On The Corner
Lecture Presentation by Robert Cohen
 
   

In almost any ethnic neighborhood in the early 1950s there was a special sound - on street corners under lamplight or moonlight, under boardwalks or elevated train lines, inside hallways and under stairwells of schools and dwellings. Explore the components of the style of vocal group harmony singing that became known as “doo-wop” — “the forgotten third of rock ’n roll.” Consider its musical, social, cultural, and religious roots; and hear how this music, in its innocence and quest for harmony, so beautifully conveyed the poetry of inner-city life. Examples will be given from black, white, integrated groups and from all five boroughs of New York City.

Robert Cohen’s programs grew from teaching New York City music at the New School in New York; from many years of showcasing Jewish (and some American folk and popular) music on the radio -- on several original series in New York and on NPR's "One People, Many Voices: American-Jewish Music Comes of Age" (now in the permanent collection of the Paley Center for Media in New York); and from studying Graduate Education at the Jewish Theological Seminary. New York Council for the Humanities speaker.
