Ceramic Workshops facilitated by artist Lauren Baily

All adults are invited - age 16 and up.  Materials will be provided.

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.  

Everything created in these workshops will be on display in the cases at the Library during the month of August.

Registration Required and is Limited. Call 466-8055, ext. 208 or register online beginning March 26.

There is also a workshop on June 28.  Come to one or both!

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.

The States We’re In: What’s In A Place Name?
presented by Mankh

More than half of the United States is named for Native words and places yet rarely are the actual Native Peoples and their traditions acknowledged. This presentation will bridge the gap between name and Peoples, place and respect for the environment aka Mother Earth, revealing how geopolitics and resource extractions have mis-shaped the sacred land, air, and waters. Other state names reflect the colonial royalty mindset and foreign religion, and it is this dynamic tension that is still playing out in our everyday lives. Monuments and signs also perpetuate misperceptions, while sports team names allow centuries of racism to linger. How united are the United States and what can be done to heal the long-standing divisions?

Mankh (Walter E. Harris III) is a writer, editor, small press publisher, and Turtle Islander. He is the author-editor of 17 books, as well as resident poet and essay contributor at axisoflogic.com. He teaches haiku, brush calligraphy, and more. Mankh enjoys learning about cultural traditions worldwide, plus music, meditation, munchies, and more. His literary website: www.allbook-books.com

Let’s Face the Music and Dance: The Films of Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers with Philip Harwood

We see great chemistry in the musical films of Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers. Starring in nine classic musicals at RKO, and then a reunion film at MGM, Astaire and Rogers not only advanced the genre of dance in the Hollywood Musical, but during a period of national economic crisis, this pair pulled us away from the misery of the world, danced their way into our hearts, and fulfilled our dreams. 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.

July Selection - Please Note: Meeting is on August 1: Hag-Seed by Margaret Atwood

William Shakespeare's The Tempest retold as Hag-Seed.

A psychologically charged story inspired by Shakespeare's The Tempest, reimagined by the award-winning author of The Handmaid's Tale, follows the retribution plot of a deposed artistic director who teaches prison inmates while consulting with a fantasy child who has taken the place of the daughter he lost years earlier.

Felix is at the top of his game as Artistic Director of the Makeshiweg Theatre Festival. His productions have amazed and confounded. Now he's staging a Tempest like no other: not only will it boost his reputation, it will heal emotional wounds.  Or that was the plan. Instead, after an act of unforeseen treachery, Felix is living in exile in a backwoods hovel, haunted by memories of his beloved lost daughter, Miranda. And also brewing revenge.
 
After twelve years, revenge finally arrives in the shape of a theatre course at a nearby prison. Here, Felix and his inmate actors will put on his Tempest and snare the traitors who destroyed him. It's magic! But will it remake Felix as his enemies fall?
 
Margaret Atwood’s novel take on Shakespeare’s play of enchantment, retribution, and second chances leads us on an interactive, illusion-ridden journey filled with new surprises and wonders of its own.
