Amy Breakstone Raku Ceramics
Pottery by Amy Breakstone - Great Neck North Alumna
 
Clay fired from gas kilns to wood fired kilns to Raku, Saggar, and Sawdust. All create dramatic results of blended textures and color.
"Come see what earth and fire can deliver!!"
 
                                      
 
Amy Breakstone,MD is an alumna of Great Neck North where she developed her interest in pottery and, in fact, as a student, taught a wheel throwing course within the Community School. She went on to study work in clay at Wesleyan University.  After a brief hiatus of 40 years (medical school, raising 3 children and full time practice in OB/GYN) she again took up this art form over the past 2 years at Canton Clayworks in CT.  While still practicing medicine as her day job, she has explored the excitement of wheel throwing and sculpture, firing at high temperatures in a Naborigama wood fired kiln as well as Raku, Saggar, and sawdust firings, all under the tutelage of master potter, Tim Scull. All of these methods create dramatic results of blended textures and color.

'Angel Shale' Handmade Prints
by Michele La Mont Ganz

 

I  have always felt a connection between the performing arts and visual arts. There exists a form  to melodies as well as color. I try to create free flowing and imaginative works that draw the viewer in again and again. My smaller works invite close up inspection as they are intricate and abstract. I want each observer to see what  is meaningful to them.

      I continue to experiment with papers, mediums and processes in my current work, always seeking to create curious and delicate pieces that draw the viewer closer for a more intimate experience.  All works are unique and hand printed on various papers.  Works are produced using a variety of  techniques  such as;  Intaglio, Chine- collé, etching, solar plates,  linoleum cuts, gold and copper leaf.

- Michele La Mont Ganz

    Michele La Mont was born in Troy, New York. She received a Bachelor of Arts in Music from SUNY Albany with a concentration in Piano performance. Ms. La Mont also attended Graduate school at NYU and Columbia, as well as graduate courses during summer sessions at Juilliard. Currently, Ms. La Mont teaches Piano to private students.  She is co-chair of the Library's Music Advisory Committee.

Join Michele for her reception in the Library Gallery on Sunday, December 9 from 2:30 to 4:00 p.m.

YOGA NIDRA facilitated by Carolyn Carpentiere

YOGA NIDRA is a systematic process of inducing complete physical, mental and emotional relaxation to conscious dreamless sleep or the hypnogogic state; the state between waking and sleeping.

During the practice of yoga nidra you enter a state of profound relaxation while remaining aware and receptive. The practice guides us through the layers or sheaths of the body called the Koshas. They include the physical, energetic, emotional, higher intelligence and bliss bodies. 

As we bring our attention to each layer of the body, we move deeper into the more subtle layers of our being, leaving us feeling deeply restored and more connected as a whole.  It allows you to connect to your innate wisdom and higher levels of consciousness. This connection to the deep layers of consciousness allows you to release negative patterns and habits referred to as Samskaras.

It is through the continual practice of yoga nidra and its connection to deep levels of consciousness that we come to realize the true nature of the Self.

This practice is done lying down. It is suitable to bring a blanket, pillow and a mat to ensure the greatest comfort in your practice.

Carolyn Carpentiere is passionate about mind-body health and it is her belief that it holds the solution to most all health problems. Carolyn received her 200 hour yoga certification at Long Island Yoga School in 2009 and has continued to work in and study many other holistic solutions to health including Mindfulness Meditation and Reiki. She has studied at Kripalu in the Berkshires, Yoga International and the Open Center in NYC. She has passion for learning solutions to help people connect to their innate healing potential. She teaches at gyms, clinical centers, corporations and privately in the NY area.

Register beginning Monday, September 17 by calling 466-8055, ext. 208/254 or register online.

December Title: Life After Life by Kate Atkinson

Ursula todd was born in 1910 and is fated to die and be reborn over and over until she "gets it right".  Life after life after life: Atkinson's telling title suggest not some glorious afterworld but the structure of this remarkable novel, about an English girl born in February, 1910.  In fact, Ursula is stillborn in an opening chapter but emerges a healthy baby in the next; and the author then hopscotches through time, circling back to offer alternate versions of Ursula's life.  Did Ursula endure an unwanted pregnancy, see her broher die of influenza, enter into a sour marriage, or not? Did she survive World Warr II Britain or instead marry a German and face down Hitler, a gun in her hand? Atkinson delivers a clear understanding that one life can take different avenues, and what a difference that can make.  (Library Journal)

Please contact Reference early enough to obtain your copy of the book.  Books may take 10 to 14 days to reach us from outside the Library.
