Wednesday December 31, 2014 -  Friday January 30, 2015
     ARTIST OF THE MONTH: ELLEN HERMANOS  
   

Ellen Hermanos' paintings explore color and texture, using varied techniques to define their surfaces and the blocks of color that comprise their subjects. Her textures are comprised of layers of paint, the deeper of which represent the past and peek through newer layers in an expression of a former life. Often, even after having finished a painting, Hermanos will go back and rework the piece, adding and subtracting color with brush, palette knife, and sponge roller to reveal what was painted beneath and as a result, revive the emotions that had been suppressed. Hermanos' paintings entwine simple, blocked forms with extensive emotional context. Her interest in human emotion, deeply rooted in her paintings, is furthered by another facet of her career; aside from her artwork, Hermanos is also a psychotherapist.

A reception will be held on January 4, 2015 in the Community Room and Art Gallery from 1-3 PM.

Would you like to learn basic computer programming? The library is offering four sessions of hand-on workshops for adults who have no prior programming experience. Participants will learn "Logo" an educational programming language which uses code commands that cause an icon, called a "turtle", to move on a computer screen. When the icon moves, it leaves behind a trace, i.e. a line, on the screen. The line drawings provide participants with immediate feedback to help find errors in the code - known as "debugging". The program is easy to use, the colorful graphics are fun to create, and one learns programming fundamentals in the process. The workshops are free. No prior experience is necessary. Bring your laptop or iPad to use. A limited number of library laptops are available for patrons to share. Registration is required. Call 781-786-6165 to reserve your spot.

distinguished himself as a solo performer, chamber musician, and contemporary music specialist. He

received the Presser Music Award in Boston, the Karl Zeise Prize as a Tanglewood Music Center Fellow,

soloist, he has performed with several Israeli orchestras and locally with the Civic Symphony of Boston,

Symphony Pro Musica, and the Hudson Valley Philharmonic. He graduated from the New England

Conservatory in Boston, where he was a Piatigorsky scholarship student of Laurence Lesser.

      Constantine Finehouse was born in St. Petersburg, Russia, and attended New England Conservatory,

Juilliard and Yale. His principal teachers included Fredrik Wanger, Natalia Harlap, Herbert Stessin,

Jerome Lowenthal, Boris Berman and Bruce Brubaker. Praised by Rhein Main Presse Allgemeine

Zeitung for his "interpretations of depth and maturity," Mr. Finehouse has performed extensively in the

United States and abroad (including in Lausanne, London, Odessa, St. Petersburg and Trieste). His

newest album with cellist Sebastian Baverstam features the universally­ admired Brahms Sonata, Opus 38

for piano and cello, as well as several new works in the High Romantic style by Boston composer Tony

Schemmer. His 2009 solo recording, Backwards Glance [Spice Rack Records 101­01], interweaves the

music of Johannes Brahms and Richard Beaudoin.

Are you learning English? Join the Small Talk group this winter. The Weston Public Library offers free conversation groups for adult intermediate and advanced level English speakers. No sign up needed.

   12:00 PM  -  2:00 PM Mindfulness Meditation  
   

Much of the time we are unaware of the incessant chatter that goes on in our heads. The problem is that this mental "noise" can cause us to miss out on important moments: a colleague's request for help, a friend's desire for connection, and a child's need for our complete attention. It can also contribute to stress and anxiety. Mindfulness meditation helps us notice what is going on in our minds and slow this unconscious chatter so that we can appreciate the quiet, rich fullness of each moment. This workshop provides a great overview of mindfulness meditation: what it is, how it works and how to establish a regular meditation practice. We will also experience this restful practice together. Please wear comfortable, loose clothing and bring a blanket and meditation cushion or pillow, if you have one. Chairs will be available for those who prefer not to sit on the floor during our practice. Register at the Reference Desk or call 781-786-6165. Sponsored by the Friends of the Library.

Pre-registration is required; sign up for a fifteen minute session.

To register, visit the library or call the Youth Services Desk.  We will need you to confirm you are coming by email or phone 24 hours before the event. 

The participating dogs and trainers are registered therapy dogs with Therapy Dogs International.

   10:30 AM  -  12:00 PM Read to a Dog!  
    Contact: Youth Services   781-886-6166   
   

For students in kindergarten through fourth grade.

Why read to a dog?  Because a dog is friendly and fuzzy and loves the attention of being read to!  Gain confidence in your reading aloud skills and enjoy the company of one of our fabulous reading buddies.   The program is in the Storytelling Room--when reading, only the readers, the dogs and the trainers are in the room.  Parents and siblings must remain outside.  Readers just gaining confidence don't need an audience!    Bring your own books, or read some from the library.

Pre-registration is required; sign up for a fifteen minute session.

To register, visit the library or call the Youth Services Desk.  We will need you to confirm you are coming by email or phone 24 hours before the event. 

The participating dogs and trainers are registered therapy dogs with Therapy Dogs International.
