Monday March 2, 2015 -  Monday March 30, 2015
     ARTIST OF THE MONTH: AL LEVIN - PHOTOGRAPHS  
   

Dr. Al Levin began taking photography seriously in his twenties and was able to do his own darkroom work with the black-and-white images of that era.  With the introduction of color photography, he was compelled to send his pictures to commercial labs for processing.  As a result, he lost hands-on involvement in creating the final image. 

The advent of digital photography has re-ignited his passion for picture taking by allowing him to regain control of the final image through the “digital darkroom.”  He has been using digital cameras for the past eight years, doing his own editing and most of his own printing.  All of his photographs were taken with a point-and-shoot camera, which has the advantage of small size, enabling him to carry it with him anywhere without feeling encumbered. His photographs are handheld and use available light.  They involve minimal editing with photo software. 

It is perhaps no accident that images have also been central to his professional work.  As a cardiologist, Dr. Levin has had daily involvement with a variety of heart “pictures”, primarily echocardiograms (ultrasound-generated motion pictures of the heart).

An artist's reception will be held on Sunday, March 8, 2015 from 2-4 PM.  Please join us in the Community Room for this event.

This exhibit, sponsored by the Weston Historical Society (WHS), highlights the day-to-day services we often take for granted and the emergency services we hope to never need. The exhibit will also show the evolution of town services as an expected and necessary responsibility of local government. 

The WHS has discovered a rich trove of photographs, memorabilia, and objects such as leather fire buckets and fire hats from Engine Company #1, police badges, handcuffs, and "Wanted"posters, and a stock certificate from the privately owned Weston Water Company, founded in 1895. 

A reception will be held Saturday afternoon, April 11 from 1-3 pm, and a related lecture is planned for later that month. In addition, the Spring 2015 issue of The Weston Historical Society Bulletin will be devoted to a history of these town services.

   7:00 PM MID-LIFE? HOW DID WE GET HERE AND WHERE ARE WE GOING?  
   

In the throes and chaos of kids, marriage, jobs, and other responsibilities, rarely do we have time to reflect 

on where we are in the present, much less anticipate and plan our future.  This evening will be a time to 

pause and consider together our current lives and our fears and aspirations about what lies ahead. 

Dr. David Treadway noted author and marriage and family therapist will talk about the problems and 

possibilities of normal mid-life issues. He will discuss energizing ways for developing greater mastery and 

satisfaction in our everyday life as well as how to visualize and create our futures. Bring an open mind and a

   2:00 PM  -  3:30 PM NON-FICTION BOOK DISCUSSION GROUP: HOT, FLAT AND CROWDED BY THOMAS L. FRIEDMAN  
   

The environmental movement reserves a hallowed place for those books or films that have stirred people from their slumber and awoken them to the fragility of the planet: Rachel Carson’s “Silent Spring",  Bill McKibben's  “End of Nature” and Al Gore’s “An Inconvenient Truth.”  Thomas L. Friedman’s book, “Hot, Flat, and Crowded: Why We Need a Green Revolution – and How It Can Renew America” may encourage America to face the threat of climate change and do something about it.

Friedman concentrates on sketching possible solutions. It is in these passages that Friedman’s ideas really take off, allowing him to give vent to his enthusiasm and unabashed idealism. The reader will be carried along by his evident passion.

Please join us in the Reading Room for this event.

They will play music of Dohnanyi, Bach, Schubert, and Beethoven, all but the Bach being originally for this combination of instruments.
