Monday Matinee - RBG
1:00 PM - 3:00 PM

RBG - At the age of 84, U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg has developed a breathtaking legal legacy while becoming an unexpected pop culture icon. But without a definitive Ginsburg biography, the unique personal journey of this diminutive, quiet warrior's rise to the nation's highest court has been largely unknown, even to some of her biggest fans - until now. RBG is a revelatory documentary exploring Ginsburg 's exceptional life and career from Betsy West and Julie Cohen, and co-produced by Storyville Films and CNN Films.   PG / 1hr 36min

Beethoven, Unvarnished - A Musically Enhanced Visual Presentation
6:30 PM - 7:30 PM

Dr. Vincent P. de Luise, Cultural Ambassador for the Waterbury Symphony Orchestra, and frequent lecturer on the humanities, presents a musically enhanced visual presentation entitled, Beethoven, Unvarnished.  

Ludwig van Beethoven is considered by many to be the most important composer in western civilization. A genius of indefatigable strength, defiant courage, and artistic vision, it was he who changed the course of western music, introducing romanticism and ushering in the modern orchestra and modern piano. He gave the world so many incomparable masterpieces -the Missa Solemnis, the last string quartets and piano sonatas, the Diabelli Variations, and the magisterial Ninth Symphony that culminates in a paean to humanity, the "Ode to Joy" and so much more.  Join Dr. Vincent de Luise for a fascinating tour of Beethoven’s life and his music and his eternal legacy.

Gunn Library Stairwell Gallery Exhibit

"The Chief Bigfoot Memorial Ride: Wounded Knee 1990" - Photography by Philip Dutton

Washington Photographer Philip Dutton’s dramatic photos document The Chief Bigfoot Memorial Ride of 1990, a momentous event that helped commemorate the 100th anniversary of the Massacre at Wounded Knee Creek. His work will be on display at the Gunn Memorial Library Stairwell Gallery in Washington from August 18 through September 29.

Dutton is a commercial and documentary photographer as well as a member of the International Cinematographers Guild. He is a graduate of The Gunnery and the University of California.

“The Wounded Knee Massacre of December 29,1890 represented the last major military operation by the US Government in its long, pernicious effort to subdue the Native American People,” explains Dutton. “Approximately 150 Lakota (Sioux) men, women and children died at the hands of the 7th Cavalry that day.”

In late 1990, along with his friend Hilary Cousins, a fellow grad from the Gunnery Class of ’81, Dutton travelled to Wounded Knee Creek on the Pine Ridge Reservation in South Dakota to document events surrounding the 100th anniversary of the massacre. “This was a deeply moving experience,” says Dutton. “One of the riders who braved the minus-30 temperatures with his two daughters said ‘It’s about never forgetting what happened. And it’s also about healing. It was a terrible thing and they were hunted down. But we are still here The Lakota are still here....’”

For further information, please call (860) 868-7586 or email gunndevelopment@biblio.org. The Gunn Memorial Library is located at 5 Wykeham Road at the juncture of Route 47 opposite the Green in Washington, CT.

Gunn Library Stairwell Gallery Exhibit

“Sticks and Stones” - Nicole Alger Explores the Beauty of Simplicity

In a major diversion from her portraiture work, Washington and New York painter Nicole Alger’s newest collection consists mostly of minimalist still life work using earth tones. Entitled “Sticks and Stones,” it will be on display at the Gunn Memorial Library Stairwell Gallery in Washington from October 6 through November 17.

“Perhaps my greatest influence is Asian scrollwork with its simple palette, sparse composition and strong design elements,” says Alger. “Using ancient human symbols such as rocks, stones, eggs, and tools, my work is designed to evoke an animism where everything in existence has a life and an energy.”

Alger is a graduate of Duke University and the Florence Academy of Art. In the past year she was a finalist in the members’ show of the Portrait Society of America and was included in the juried American Women Artist’s show at the Haggin Museum. She also paints portraits pro bono of adoptive children for the charity Painting for Good Causes.

A Look Back Through Geologic Times
6:30 PM - 7:30 PM

Geologist Ray Underwood, a Washington CT resident, delivers a talk & visual presentation A Look Back Through Geologic Time (The Real Reason New Preston and Washington Seem Worlds Apart). 

You may have noticed the difference between the Hartford valley, the Northwest Hills and Upstate New York? At different times in Connecticut’s geologic history, there were mountains that rivaled the Himalayas. It was connected to Western Europe, Ireland, and Africa and the Atlantic Ocean tried to split it in two. Connecticut’s geologic history, currently cloaked mostly by our forests and farm lands, has at different times in the past, been much more “active”.  All of this and more has been deciphered from the “evidence in our rocks”. 

Ray’s talk and visual presentation will explore the reasons our hills came to be and the complexity of our local, state, and regional environment.
