2 Local Great Neck Artists
Robert Wallman and Warren Mintz

In addition to his fine art, long-time Great Neck resident Robert Wallman is also a graphic designer and illustrator with experience in advertising, corporate communications, marketing, packaging, and publishing.

When Warren Mintz retired from full time teaching, it became important to him to explore ways outside the classroom to do something meaningful.  One of the possible activities evolved from the poster collages.  He decided to collect cutouts and almost all of his collages begin by first choosing a background and then building upon it.

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 Panico 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.

Please wear comfortable clothes and shoes. 

$40 fee for entire series of 8 classes.  In-person registration only begins Monday, January 6 at 10:00 a.m. for Great Neck School District residents, and Wednesday, January 8 at 10:00 a.m. for non-residents.  Please make payment in cash, charge card, check or money order, made payable to "Great Neck Library."

Sacred Cities: Angkor Wat, Cambodia presented by Dr. Ronald Brown

From the 9th to the 13th centuries the Khmer Emperor ruled his vast empire that included Cambodia, Laos, Thailand, and large parts of Vietnam from his capital city of Angkor Wat. Ships laden with goods sailed to Japan and China, India, east Africa, and the Middle East. Greek, Arab, Jewish, Indian, and Chinese merchants brought the wealth of the world to glorify the city. Monumental stone temples, palaces, public buildings, and suburbs spread for miles around, making Angkor Wat one of the largest cities in the medieval world. In the year 1431 the empire was invaded by a coalition of kings of Thailand, Angkor Wat was looted and burned. For the next 6 centuries, only the ghosts of ancient emperors, empresses, soldiers, priests and monks, teachers, artists, and citizens dwelled in the palaces, temples, mansions, and courtyards. Join Dr. Ronald Brown as he joins these ghosts of an empire past. Dr. Brown explored this exciting city during January 2003.

Dr. Ronald Brown, an adjunct professor with the Unification Theological Seminary in Manhattan, is now in his fourth decade of teaching and his fifteenth year at UTS.  A world traveler with a Ph.D. in International Relations from the University of Geneva, Switzerland and an M.T.S. in World Religions from Harvard Divinity School, Brown has studied and taught in such diverse places as Israel, Russia, Hungary, France, Switzerland and Mexico, with stops in China, Indonesia, Senegal, Cameroon, Peru, Egypt and Haiti.

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.

Please wear comfortable clothes and shoes.
