     ARTIST OF THE MONTH: STEPHEN BAKER, PHOTOGRAPHY  
   

Artist Statement

After shooting 35mm and medium format film for more than 3 decades, and working in traditional darkrooms, I became an early adopter of digital photography/painting and giclée printing techniques.

I enjoy photographing “found” subjects, and rarely shoot in a studio. I want each person who sees my work to create his or her own narrative about the subject. Many of my prints are derived from film negatives because I enjoy the interesting result of digital rendering of film grain.  

When working in my digital design and print studio, I spend hours producing several versions of each image until I think I have best captured the emotion I was experiencing in the that moment. Every detail in the image is layered and digitally enhanced.

Printing is an integral, and very personal and powerful part of my work.  I only use only archival pigment inks on European all rag content fine gallery art papers.  I personally hand-produce and sign all limited edition prints.

Artist Resume

Stephen has been shooting 35mm and medium format film for more than 30 years, and taught at the Kansas City Art Institute.  After working extensively in traditional darkrooms he became an early adopter of digital photography/painting and giclée printing techniques. All images go through a lengthy editing and layering process to achieve the best interpretation of the emotion in the original scene. These are not "documentary” images.

He has had several shows at the Cunningham Gallery in New Hampshire, including a one-man show in 2014. Most recently he exhibited at the juried Northampton Paradise Art Festival.  In May 2017 he will present a print exhibition at the spring Paradise City Art Festival, Northampton, followed by a show at the Berkshires Arts Festival in July.

Stephen spent over forty years working in television; first in Kansas City and for the last 20 years of his career at WGBH in Boston.  As Creative Director, he led the creative and design team in Emmy award winning promotional work for WGBH, and other PBS stations. He is a musician, and has written and produced music for film and video.

   6:30 PM Film Club - Screening Roman Holiday  
   

Starring Audrey Hepburn in a role that launched her career, ROMAN HOLIDAY could be described as a “Mid-20th-Century fairy tale” about a visiting princess who flees her numbing formal duties for a day incognito. She meets an American reporter played by Gregory Peck, who soon catches on to her true identity and a possible scoop of a lifetime. As the two take in the sights and joys of the Eternal City, their growing feelings for each other make for a sublime, if brief interlude as a reporter’s opportunity and princess’s obligations melt away.

The Friends of the Weston Public Library are happy to announce that Ilene Bezahler will be speaking at the library on Wednesday, 23rd at 7:00 pm. As she writes, “over the past 10 years, Boston has seen a re-birth of interest in food. Whether it’s the opening of a farmers market in your town, the interest chefs have in using and giving recognition to local products on their menus, or the increase in specialty/gourmet food stores, we are seeing an emphasis on seasonal foods and local products. We at Edible Boston want to help support this renaissance. Our publication and website will be a resource for finding out what’s new, what’s available locally, and an introduction to the people instrumental in bringing about the change. Isn’t it time you knew about the farmer at your local farm stand?” Please join us and come hear what the buzz is all about!

   3:00 PM Unlaunch'd Voices, an afternoon with Walt Whitman  
   

Actor Stephen Collins performs in this one-man show. The play opens with Whitman on the evening of his seventieth birthday. The audience is a visitor in his room as he prepares for his birthday celebration. Whitman begins to reminisce and to question his success as a man and a poet. He tells us his work has proved to be "less than a failure..." He remembers a mystical experience he had in his thirty-seventh year that inspired him to write poetry. During the telling, Whitman transforms into his young vibrant self and we begin to trace back along with him the experiences that led to the creation of Leaves of Grass, his lifetime work. Through poetry and readings of actual letters, we experience Whitman's growth into a mature artist who is at peace about "himself, God and death." This program is sponsored by the Friends of the Library and is free and open to all.

   7:00 PM  -  8:30 PM The Mass Central Railway, Then and Now  
   

In 1871 teams of Irish and Italian laborers began the construction of the Mass Central Railway in Weston. When completed, the line ran 104 miles from Boston through Weston to Northampton. The last Weston commuters rode the Mass Central to Boston and back on November 26, 1971. Why was the Mass Central built when Massachusetts already had two train lines running east to west? And why did the line end service a hundred years later?  Since 1971 the communities along the old Mass Central Right of Way have been debating what to do with this invaluable piece of real estate. What is the status of this abandoned train line today?

Joel Angiolillo, Speaker

As Joel's kids use to say to their friends, "My dad's an engineer, but not a choo-choo engineer." He worked at AT&T, Philips and Verizon for 35 years. He has been a member of the Rails-to-Trails organization almost since its founding and has ridden and walked a number of rail-trails across the country.

   2:30 PM  -  3:30 PM Mystery Book Group  
   

If you enjoy reading and talking about mystery novels, you will find good company in the library's newest book group. This month we'll discuss Charles Todd's A Pale Horse.

Haunted by memories of battle, unable to find a safe haven after his discharge from a psychiatric hospital and the abrupt departure of his fiancée, shell-shocked veteran Rutledge has returned to his prewar life as a Scotland Yard inspector. This time out, the War Office wants him to locate a mysterious person of interest, connected with (and perhaps the same as) an unidentified corpse found at a Yorkshire abbey. Rutledge toils diligently to uncover personal secrets and shames that may have motivated someone to kill, and their connection to a long-ago romance between the suspected killer's wife and the local inspector investigating the case.

“Award winner Todd, the pseudonym for a mother-and-son writing team, is brilliant at creating atmosphere and unforgettable characters.” Library Journal

Copies of the book will be available for check out at the Circulation Desk a month in advance. The group will meet in the Conference Room. Register at the Reference Desk or call 781-786-6165 for more information.

     ARTIST OF THE MONTH: GLORIA ROSS  
   

Gloria Ross's art education and journey as an artist have continued and developed over the years with courses at DeCordova Museum, the museum school at The Boston Museum of Fine Arts and numerous workshops. Having started as a stone sculptor and printmaker, she then took courses in acrylic painting, pastel, collage, hand-made paper making, encaustic and drawing. Consequently she evolved into the artist she is today - presently focused on mixed media painting and clay sculpture.

Gloria has shown at The Copley Society (she is a Copley Artist Member), Gallery Mourlot, Cambridge Art Association, Weston Arts And Crafts and Concord Art Associations. She has won numerous awards at juried shows at these venues.

Also a member of New England Sculpture Association and the Monoprint Guild of New England, Gloria has been a docent at DeCordova Sculpture Park and Museum since 2011.

ARTIST'S STATEMENT:

Forms found in nature are the inspiration for my art....the human body, flowers and foliage are the foundation for many of my pieces. Botanical accuracy is not important to me; flowers become abstract images covering a field with color and shapes, maybe recognizable but mysterious and emotional.

I use a mixed media technique using acrylic paints and mediums, enamel and gouache, oil sticks, pastel, charcoal, graphite, inks and collaged elements.

Line and texture are important components of my work and the use of various media results in different dimensions and intensity. Texture is introduced with collage and other materials. I like using a limited palette so the elemental structures and forms are emphasized.

ARTIST'S RECEPTION: SATURDAY, MARCH 11 FROM 1-3 PM
