Tai Chi

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.

Lauren Skelly Bailey

Thanks to the New York State Council for 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.

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!

LOCATION: Levels Teen Center
There are 9 spaces available.

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

Thanks to the New York State Council for 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."

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

More than half of the United States is named from 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.

Learn about which nature we are referring to, the importance of calming your mind, the health benefits of the outdoors, happiness & the restorative advantage of nature, and why it is especially important to share this spirit with children—all of which will inspire you to spend more time with nature.
