SUN DISCS by Joan Brill-Pavlovic
Joan's initial inspiration for creating these Sun Discs was a ceramic sun with a happy face that she had purchased on a visit to St. Augustine, Florida.  She began embellishing the discs with beads from her personal collection, then moved on to explore the incorporation of semi-precious stones. In addition, through the evolution of this project, the finished discs that began as simply clay became covered with increasingly more stones until the last piece (to-date) is virtually completely inlaid.
 
The discs are all made of natural clay. The semiprecious stones include turquoise, tiger eye, onyx, mother of pearl, garnet and more. They range in size from approximately 2.5" to 4" in circumference. A glaze was applied to their surface to preserve their integrity. There are a number of influences in these creations, including Southwest Native American and Mesoamerican. The tools Joan used to make impressions are implements commonly found in household kitchens.
 
Joan was raised in Lake Success and graduated from Great Neck South. She attended art classes at the Art Students League, Hartford Art School, University of Buffalo, among others. In the early 1990s, she exhibited her drawings in New York City - in Soho and, most notably with a solo exhibit of her nupastel landscapes at the Bronx Museum of the Arts. She  was curator of the gallery space at Kauffman Hall at the 92nd Street YM-YWHA from 1980-1983 and is currently pursuing photography and textile arts.

The Art of Cuba presented by Ines Powell

Explore Cuba’s vibrant art with Ines Powell. Cuban art is a rich mixture of African, European and North American influences that reflect the diverse demographics of the island. Cuban art began to flourish in the 19th century with the foundation of the San Alejandro Academy of the Arts in Havana. From its beginnings, the Academy was the incubator of Cuba’s most famous artists, such as Wifredo Lam, Amelia Pelaez, Rene Portocarrero and many others. In the early part of the 20th century, Cuban artists began to create their own Cuban vanguardism movements under the influence of European modernist styles.

Ines Powell is an art historian and educator, and has been associated with the Metropolitan Museum of Art since 1982.

José Garcia Montebravo: Cuban Self-Taught Painter

Registration suggested beginning March 26 by calling 466-8055, ext. 208 or register online.

April Selection: Where’d You Go Bernadette? By Maria Semple

A whip-smart, hysterical dramedy about a family in crisis after the disappearance of its brilliant, misanthropic matriarch.

Bernadette Fox is notorious. To her Microsoft-guru husband, she's a fearlessly opinionated partner; to fellow private-school mothers in Seattle, she's a disgrace; to design mavens, she's a revolutionary architect, and to 15-year-old Bee, she is a best friend and, simply, Mom.

Then Bernadette disappears. It began when Bee aced her report card and claimed her promised reward: a family trip to Antarctica. But Bernadette's intensifying allergy to Seattle--and people in general--has made her so agoraphobic that a virtual assistant in India now runs her most basic errands. A trip to the end of the earth is problematic.

To find her mother, Bee compiles email messages, official documents, secret correspondence--creating a compulsively readable and touching novel about misplaced genius and a mother and daughter's role in an absurd world.
