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.

Tai Chi facilitated by Joseph Panico

Tai Chi is an internal form of martial art that is practiced for health and self defense.  Incorporating breathing with slow and fluid movements, the exercise connects the internal focus of the mind with the external control of the body.  Practicing Tai Chi ultimately leads to Improved Circulation, Better Balance, Greater Flexibility, Increased Energy and Reduced Tension.

Joseph has been practicing martial arts for more than 15 years.  He began his Tai Chi training in 1997 at Red Dragon Kung Fu Center under Sifu Rafael Gomez, and has been studying Tai Chi and Qigong extensively with Sifu Joseph Laracuenta since 2002.  “Our goal is to live a long and healthy life.  By focusing on ourselves we get to improve the quality of our life.  And by expressing that quality outward we get to improve the lives of others.” Joseph has also won numerous awards at the US Open Martial Arts Championship in Queens, NY, has performed Tai Chi at Citi Field, and has appeared as a guest on the Project Independence Radio Show 88.1FM WCWP.

Tai Chi is an internal martial art that is practiced for health and self defense.  It incorporates both slow moving exercise and stillness practice.  By connecting our breathing with our movements, we strengthen our ability to focus on each moment.

Please wear comfortable clothes and shoes.

$40 fee for entire series of 8 classes. In-person registration only (check, cash or money order made payable to Great Neck Library) beginning March 26 for Great Neck School District residents and April 2 for non-residents.

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.
