In the Gallery this Month: Art for the Birds

Nelson Hammer will show his watercolor paintings in the library's gallery this month. He writes: "I have always had an affinity for drawing, but my interest in art greatly increased when my parents bought me an oil painting set while I was in college. I painted a number of landscapes and seascapes during my years at school and the summers in between (many of which are on my website, www.artforthebirds.com). After graduation, the need to earn a living, getting married and the desire to start a family forced my artistic pursuits onto the back burner.

While visiting Michaels Arts and Crafts store in Newton with my wife and granddaughters in 2014, I purchased a watercolor set and began painting birds, an activity turned passion which continues to build in intensity and skill to this day. I have created 46 watercolors of birds since then. I strive to represent my subjects as ornithologically accurate as possible."

Baby Signing
10:30 AM - 11:15 AM
Baby Sign Language Class with Sheryl White!

For infants and toddlers,
two months through pre-verbal

Sign language is great to learn for all ages. It helps babies communicate, and it enhances early literacy skills for verbal children as well!  In this program, your child will learn sign language through songs, stories, games, play and more.  

Baby sign language, developed by Dr. Joseph Garcia, lets babies and toddlers communicate their needs to their caregivers, so they don’t need to cry or become frustrated.  During the first years of life, Infants and toddlers have a desire to communicate their needs and wants however, speech occurs after cognitive ability.

Baby sign language gives them the ability to communicate their needs and wishes, pre-verbal, without frustration, tears or tantrums. Babies and toddlers can learn signs important to their lifestyle such as “milk”, “more”, “sleep”, “eat”, “Mommy”, “Daddy” and so on.

Learning is at the infants own page. Each individual infant develops the ability to sign at different stages in their growth.  For an infant to start signing, the infant must be able to focus on the hand movement and have the cognitive ability to make the connection than a sign is a gesture of something they need or want.

 

Benefits of Baby Sign Language

  • Reduces frustration for everyone
  • Deepens bonding between you and your baby
  • Gives babies the ability to express themselves before they can speak
  • Accelerates your babies development of speech
  • Increases child’s vocabulary
  • Relieves anxiety about your babies needs
  • Enhances early literacy skills
  • Ads visual and kinesthetic emphasis to auditory input
  • Lower noise levels and aggressive behaviors in childcare settings

Registration is required.  Please sign up at the Youth Services Desk.  The program will be held in the Storytime Room.

Read to a Dog!
1:00 PM - 2:30 PM

For kids in kindergarten through fourth grade.

Why read to a dog? Because a dog is friendly and fuzzy and loves the attention of being read to!  Youngsters can gain confidence in their reading aloud skills in the company of Maggie, our fabulous reading buddy, and her trainer, Katie!  The program is in the Storytelling Room.  Since young readers just working toward gaining confidence don't need an audience, even a loving one, we ask that parents and siblings wait outside.  (You can still peek through the window in the door!) 

Our dogs are registered Therapy Dogs with BONES International.

Sign up at the Youth Services Desk for a fifteen minute time slot.

Salem Witch Trials in a Nutshell
7:00 PM

What really happened in 1692?

The Salem witch trials, although well remembered and well documented, has become an enigma to later generations, a subject cluttered with inaccuracies and urban legends. "The Salem Witch Trials in a Nutshell" will present the basics of those turbulent months, the cast of characters, the escalation of events, and the aftermath--but not necessarily what you might expect.

Marilynne K. Roach, author of The Salem Witch Trials: a Day-by-Day Chronicle of a Community Under Siege and Six Women of Salem, has researched the 1692 trials for decades. Having determined the correct site of the executions in 1997, she worked with the Gallows Hill Project to memorialize the site which was dedicated by the City of Salem in 2017. Please visit Ms. Roach's website for additional information http://www.MarilynneKRoach.com

This free presentation is sponsored by the Friends of the Library.

In the Gallery: artist Michael William

Michael William creates small contemporary oil paintings in a loose realism style, his subjects centering around the familiar and the overlooked. He will be displaying a number of recent paintings available for sale at the Weston Library from Nov. 14th to Dec. 31st

"My intentions for this work remain the same as when I began my Small Works series 6 years ago: to paint on a small scale, not spend more than a few days on each piece, and to choose subjects that are simple and, as a fellow painter once said in an interview, "foils for the real subject, which is light". I view these exercises as genuine expressions of the pleasure of seeing and consciously try not to imbue them with anymore than the innate beauty of the subject and the often simple but powerful emotions it has inspired in me. For me they represent placeholders for the stray observations and in-between moments throughout my past when I spotted a flower on the table at a favorite restaurant from years ago or noticed the way the sun fell onto the rug in an apartment I've since moved from.
They bring me back to those moments where something often overlooked moved me enough to want to capture it, and when reflecting
on them as a collection I feel a sense of peace and gain perspective on my life."
- Michael William

Mindfulness for Families

For families and their Children, ages 3 - 5

What is Mindfulness?
   For kids Mindfulness means paying attention to what is happening right now with kindness and curiosity....to help relax, focus and have fun.

Why practice Mindfulness with children?
Benefits can include an increase in attention span, focus, and concentration, better relationships with parents and peers, good self esteem, better sleep habits, and less stress, anxiety, and depression; all of which can lead to better emotion regulation, self monitoring and self control.

In this class, the emphasis is on engaging the children*s senses through activities.  Sheryl comes prepared with a bag of sensory props and uses different objects to engage and help the children practice how to be more in the present moment.  It is the awareness that is created during the activity that is beneficial, not the activity itself. When you notice what is happening around you, you focus more deeply, and that attention to your own senses will help you improve your life.   Parents attending this class can learn techniques to practice Mindfulness at home.

Chappaquiddick Tragedy: Kennedy's Second Passenger Revealed
3:00 PM

In mid-morning of July 19, 1969 Sen. Ted Kennedy reported an accident he had had the previous night in which Mary Jo Kopechne had drowned. No one believed the story he wrote in his police report. What was he covering up? What really happened? Author Donald Nelson pored over thousands of pages of evidence, testimony, books, and written accounts, which led him to offer an explanation of what actually happened that night in his new book Chappaquiddick Tragedy: Kennedy’s Second Passenger Revealed. The book is an unintended result of a retirement project Mr. Nelson undertook after a career as a research physicist at Bell Laboratories. “I saw a documentary on A&E about the accident which outlined the questions around the event, and thought it would be a good intellectual exercise to examine it,” he said. This program is sponsored by the Friends of the Library and is free and open to all.

Concert: Viola Quartet with Amos Lawrence
3:00 PM
The Library Concert Series will be treated to a rare programming luxury, namely two viola quintets.  One is by Mozart and one by Brahms, and they are among the most glorious chamber music works in the repertoire.  The viola quintets are so named because in addition to the regular string quartet lineup there is an extra viola, that deep and rich inner voice that gives tremendous depth to the music.  In the hands of the elegant Mozart, his C Major Quintet is a total delight, and in the hands of Brahms, his G Major Quintet Opus 111 is a rich and powerful experience.  Please join us in the Community Room of the library for this 3 pm, free concert, but come early if you want to be assured a seat.
The musicians are Jane Kang, Amos Lawrence, Debbie Apple, Merrick Nelson, and Stephanie Wingfield

This free concert is sponsored by the library's Music Committee and the Friends of the Library.

Opera for Everyone: Carmen
3:00 PM

More than any other art form, opera is meant to appeal directly to the senses. All you need are eyes, ears, and a soul to appreciate opera. Carmen, the most famous of Bizet's operas, with its exotic Spanish setting, introduced a note of realism into opera that proved unacceptable to many who saw the first performances. Speaker Erika Reitshamer is an engaging teacher whose knowledge and love of opera will inspire all, and her open style and sense of humor are irrestistible. She has lectured on opera and great singers of opera for many years and was active in the formation of the Boston Lyric Opera more than 40 years ago. This program is sponsored by the Friends of the Library and is free and open to all.

Butterfly: the life and times of James McNeil Whistler
3:00 PM

The Weston Public Library is pleased to welcome back acclaimed actor Stephen Colins, who will perform "Butterfly" by Carl A. Rossi, a one-man show about the life and times of James McNeil Whistler, the volatile American artist who struggled for artistic expression and personal freedom mostly in Victorian England. The play depicts Whistler at two phases of his life: first as a bankrupt artist in his forties on commission in Vencie, then as the lonely but established legend in his sixties living in London. The play ends with an explanation of how it was he came to paint the iconic portrait of his mother. Collins is a classically-trained actor who has performed in many productions. This free program is sponsored by the Friends of the Library.
