Ocean Engagement:Coral Awareness
Lauren Skelly Bailey

Come meet the artist on July 11 at the Lower Level Art Gallery from 5 to 7 pm!

 

Thanks to the New York State Council on the Arts, and the Huntington Arts Council, this summer ceramic artist Lauren Skelly Bailey will be featured at the Great Neck Library as part of her Creative Communities Grant project. In her statement Lauren describes her work as exploring methods of making assemblage sculptures, conglomerations, installations, and figurines. "I consider myself as an explorer, seeking new ways of layering, swirling, forcing, bending, breaking and reusing surfaces."  A conversation between elements of nature emerges from her practice: flora, fauna, rocks, and the tooled objects made by man are called to mind. "In combining them, I forge a new perspective of these elements."

Lauren’s project entitled “Coral Awareness” will take shape in two parts the first is a gallery exhibition featuring new sculptures created from research on the effects global warming has had on corals. In this research Lauren found that corals emit their own algae tissues resulting in the coral turning completely white. From this research Lauren will be creating three installations focusing on the metamorphosis of healthy corals to bleached corals. The second portion of Lauren’s grant project will involve the public; she will be hosting two workshops at the library for adults 16+. Each workshop will supply all materials for the duration of the workshop. The first workshop (6/26 12-2pm) attendees will hand painting ceramic tiles with coral inspired imagery and learn about the effects of global warming on corals. The second workshop (6/28 12-2pm) will involve, hand-painting patterns on hand pressed clay, sweeping up the clay into ribbons, and manipulating these ribbons into coral sculptures. Both workshops involve some firing off site at Lauren’s ceramic studio and the works will be displayed in the library gallery for viewing post firing.  Please make sure to register for these limited engagements prior to the workshop to ensure there are enough materials for each attendee.

June Selection: 1984 by George Orwell

Written in 1948, 1984 was George Orwell’s chilling prophecy about the future. And while 1984 has come and gone, his dystopian vision of a government that will do anything to control the narrative is timelier than ever...

The Party told you to reject the evidence of your eyes and ears. It was their final, most essential command.

Winston Smith toes the Party line, rewriting history to satisfy the demands of the Ministry of Truth. With each lie he writes, Winston grows to hate the Party that seeks power for its own sake and persecutes those who dare to commit thoughtcrimes. But as he starts to think for himself, Winston can’t escape the fact that Big Brother is always watching...

A startling and haunting vision of the world, 1984 is so powerful that it is completely convincing from start to finish. No one can deny the influence of this novel, its hold on the imaginations of multiple generations of readers, or the resiliency of its admonitions—a legacy that seems only to grow with the passage of time.

In her statement Lauren describes her work as exploring methods of making assemblage sculptures, conglomerations, installations, and figurines.

" Flora, fauna, rocks, and the tooled objects made by man are called to mind. In combining them, I forge a new perspective of these elements."

Lauren’s project entitled, “Coral Awareness,” will take shape in two parts.

The first is a gallery exhibition featuring new sculptures created from research on the effects global warming has had on corals.  Lauren found that corals emit their own algae tissues resulting in the coral turning completely white.  Lauren will be creating three installations focusing on the metamorphosis of healthy corals to bleached corals.

Everything You’ve Ever Wanted to Know about Life After Death

Who hasn’t wondered if there is life after death? Join Cindi for this fun, enlightening, and entertaining workshop, in which she will share what she has learned about life, love, and the Hereafter from talking with the dead.  Have you ever wondered if mediumship was a blessing or a curse, or a little bit of both? Bring your questions, and learn how you can hone your psychic gifts. You will definitely leave knowing that death ends a life, but not a relationship. 

Cindi Sansone-Braff, The Romance Whisperer, talks with the dead to show you how to live well and love better. She is the author of Grant Me a Higher Love and Why Good People Can’t Leave Bad Relationships. Newsday has recommended her as one of the top psychic/mediums on L.I.  She was named Best Psychic five years in a row by the Long Island Press. She was featured on Cablevision’s Neighborhood Journal and in the Daily News.  This lecture is part of the Long Island Authors Group speaking engagements.

Registration suggested beginning June 25 by calling 466-8055, ext. 208/254, or register online.
