Wednesday September 2, 2015 -  Friday October 23, 2015
     ARTIST OF THE MONTH: JOHN L. PACHECO  
   

ARTIST'S STATEMENT:

Painting abstractly, I can compose using color in ways that my previous attachment to figuration wouldn’t permit. The paintings exist like a piece of music - evocative rather than specific. The titles compensate for the lack of narrative.

Education: Watertown public schools; Yale College, BA, studio art (William Bailey);  Boston University, MFA, painting (James Weeks, Philip Guston)
Work: 1980 to present, professor of art, Mount Wachusett Community College, Gardner, Ma; 
2004 to present, Director of the East Wing Gallery, Gardner, Ma.
               Married, six children, home and studio in Gardner, Ma.

   3:00 PM CONCERT: SOLSTICE SACKBUTS  
   

The library's Music Committee is delighted to welcome back David Lindsey, Alan Johnson, and Leslie Havens, otherwise known as the Solstice Sackbuts, who have entertained us greatly in the past.

As they say, it will feature "a very palatable program of contemporary, classical and pop music, highlighting works of living composers." The Modern Sackbut program will also include a new composition currently in the works. Join us for an entertaining and creative hour of music! For more information about the group and its members, visit www.solsticesackbuts.com. The concert is supported in part by a grant from the Weston Cultural Council, a local agency supported by the Massachusetts Cultural Council.
