ARTIST OF THE MONTH: ED MOVITZ
Ed Movitz is a professor emeritus from the Massachusetts College of Art where he taught Drawing and Painting and where he served as the Head of the Painting Department and as Dean of Undergraduate Studies.  During his career as an artist, he has worked as a painter, printmaker and sculptor, exhibiting throughout New England.
 
Movitz will be exhibiting pen and ink drawings done in the last few decades.  These drawings could be considered “internal ideas”  in that they begin with no preconceived image but rather develop from the first stroke of the pen, each subsequent image growing from the previous one. Movitz deals with ubiquitous subjects: stars, auto wheels, clouds, lightning bolts, solar and lunar discs, aspects of the sea and boats, obelisks, portals, etc. with the goal of creating meaningful and dynamic relationships.

Creative Writing for Fun (class 3 of 8)
10:00 AM - 11:30 AM

“A short story is like a flare sent into the sky. Suddenly and startlingly, it illuminates one portion of the world…” R. Macauley

For those ready to send out their flares, this class helps you explore the hidden stories in your mind: fact and fiction. Illuminating stories come forth through in-class writing, different writing topics and tips each week, and shared reading. You don’t need a degree in writing or a published novel, just a desire to explore your own creativity. Class size is limited. This free class is open to adults age 18 and over. Pamela Wight has an M.A. in Literature and has taught creative writing classes in New England and the San Francisco Bay area for two decades. She is the author of two books of fiction, an illustrated children’s book, and a weekly blog called Roughwighting. To register, or for more information, call 781-786-6165. This program is sponsored by the Friends of the Library.
