Ocean Engagement:Coral Awareness
Lauren Skelly Bailey

Meet the artist on July 11 in the Lower Level Art Gallery from 5 to 7 p.m.

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.

An Afternoon at the Barnes Museum presented by Louise Cella Caruso

In this PowerPoint presentation, we will examine select works of impressionist, post-impressionist and early modern works on display at the Barnes Museum.  Dr. Albert Barnes assembled one of the world’s most important holdings of fine art.

The collection has been praised for the singularity, boldness, and independence of Barnes’ vision.

Louise Cella Caruso has developed 23 art lectures thus far. She has a certification in art and antique appraising from C.W. Post, LIU’s Appraisal Institute.  She continued course study at museums in the US and Europe. Her research is ongoing.

Film Historian Philip Harwood discusses the wonderful  films of Astaire and Rogers, with clips from  such films as Top Hat, Swing Time, Shall We Dance, The Barkleys of Broadway, and others.

Philip Harwood is a Film Historian and lectures on film at LIU: Post, where he is an Adjunct Lecturer in the Hutton House Lectures.  He teaches film studies at 92nd Street Y and the JCC in Manhattan and is a published author.

July's Selection: Britt-Marie Was Here: A Novel by Fredrik Backman

The New York Times bestselling author of A Man Called Ove and My Grandmother Asked Me to Tell You She’s Sorry“returns with this heartwarming story about a woman rediscovering herself after a personal crisis…fans of Backman will find another winner in these pages” (Publishers Weekly).

But hidden inside the socially awkward, fussy busybody is a woman who has more imagination, bigger dreams, and a warmer heart that anyone around her realizes.

When Britt-Marie walks out on her cheating husband and has to fend for herself in the miserable backwater town of Borg—of which the kindest thing one can say is that it has a road going through it—she finds work as the caretaker of a soon-to-be demolished recreation center. The fastidious Britt-Marie soon finds herself being drawn into the daily doings of her fellow citizens, an odd assortment of miscreants, drunkards, layabouts. Most alarming of all, she’s given the impossible task of leading the supremely untalented children’s soccer team to victory. In this small town of misfits, can Britt-Marie find a place where she truly belongs?

Funny and moving, sweet and inspiring, Britt-Marie Was Herecelebrates the importance of community and connection in a world that can feel isolating.

Which Zodiac Sign Am I Compatible With?
presented by Maria DeSimone, Astrologer

Every astrological sign is unique in its expression; i.e., Cancers are more emotional than  Aquarians; Capricorns are more practical than Sagittarians, and Scorpios are more loyal than Geminis. When it comes to astrology, more often than not - birds of a feather don't necessarily flock together.   Join astrologer Maria DeSimone and find out how the different signs of the zodiac interact with one another.

"A series of life events pulled me into astrology and I was awakened to embrace my true life direction. Today, I see how it all fits. My background in psychology and love of communication are natural complements to a unique profession as a counseling astrologer."   Maria serves as President for the Long Island, New York chapter of the National Council for Geocosmic Research (NCGR), one of the leading professional astrology organizations. 

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