In the Art Gallery this month: Gloria Ross

Though describing herself as “largely self-taught,″ Ross has studied under influential teachers including the late sculptor Peter Abate and Bernard Toale, a gallery owner who wrote an influential book on paper making.

Ross has taken a somewhat circuitous route to her present passion for painting. Growing up in Brooklyn, N.Y., Ross was always interested in art but took the practical route by studying sociology in college. After her sons grew up, she renewed her long dormant artistic interests by studying ceramics, weaving and sculpture at the deCordova Sculpture Park and Museum.

Brush in hand, she works intuitively, driven by her passion for rich colors and natural forms. “When I’m painting, I literally live in the moment. Sometimes I don’t know where it’s going ,″ she said.

There will be a reception for Gloria in the library's Community Room on Sunday, October 6 at 1:00 PM

She has exhibited her work at the Copley Society of Art in Boston, Weston Arts and Crafts Society, Concord Art Association and at the DeCordova.

The Library’s Music Committee is excited to welcome back pianist Eleanor Perrone, one of our audience’s favorite musicians, who will be joined by flutist Meghan Jacoby for a varied and intriguing performance. They will play Barber’s Canzone for Flute and Piano; Copland’s “Flowing” Duo for Flute and Piano; Schumann’s Fantasiestuke, Op. 12; Aaron Jay Kermis’ Air for Flute and Piano; and Three American Pieces for Flute and Piano by Lukas Foss. Ellie Perrone has been characterized as a “virtuosic storyteller” by Germany’s Kieler Nachtrichten and described as a “pianist who makes you listen,” by the Boston Globe. Ellie enjoys speaking to her audience as a way of drawing them in and breaking down some of the barriers in classical music between artist and audience. Trained at the Juilliard School and Boston University, she is on the piano faculty at the Rivers School Conservatory and maintains a private studio in Watertown. Meghan Jacoby holds a Doctorate of Musical Arts degree from Boston University and has performed around the United States, South America, and Europe. She is principal Flute of Symphony by the Sea and piccolo player with the Cape Ann Symphony. During the academic year, she is on faculty at Saint Anselm College, Phillips Academy Andover, Powers Music School, and Concord Academy, where she also serves as the Director of Chamber Music.

Women's Suffrage in Massachusetts
7:00 PM - 9:00 PM

Massachusetts was at the center of the national struggle for women's rights. Long before the Civil War, Lucy Stone and other Massachusetts abolitionists opposed women's exclusion from political life. They launched the organized movement at the first National Woman's Rights Convention, held in Worcester. After the war, state activists founded the Boston-based American Woman Suffrage Association and Woman's Journal to lead campaigns across the country. Their activities laid the foundation for the next generation of suffragists to triumph over tradition. Author Barbara Berenson gives these revolutionary reformers the attention they deserve in this compelling and engaging story.

Please join us in the library's Community Room for this free lecture, sponsored by the Weston Historical Society.

The Lamps of Albarracin: from 15th century Aragaon, a Jewish girl sends us a message of light
3:00 PM

The Lamps of Albarracin takes us to medieval Spain to experience the multicultural society of Aragon and its extraordinary resistance to the Spanish Inquisition. Narrated in the first person by a Sephardic girl, the story features thinking women and girls throughout including historical figure Brianda Besante, who taught women and girls in her home.

Please join us for a discussion of this new novel, a "gem of historical literary fiction", the roots of the Spanish Inquisition and the parallels to political upheaval in the world today.

Author Edith Scott Saavedra earned a BA, magna cum laude, from Harvard University, where she studied Spanish literature with Professor Juan Marichal.

Mystery Book Group
2:30 PM - 3:30 PM

Do you enjoy reading and discussing mystery novels? You'll find good company in a friendly group of readers who meet monthly in the library's Conference Room.

This month the group will discuss The Death of Mrs. Westaway by Ruth Ware:

On a day that begins like any other, Hal receives a mysterious letter bequeathing her a substantial inheritance. She realizes very quickly that the letter was sent to the wrong person--but also that the cold-reading skills she's honed as a tarot card reader might help her claim the money. Soon, Hal finds herself at the funeral of the deceased...where it dawns on her that there is something very, very wrong about this strange situation and the inheritance at the center of it.

"Evocative prose, artfully shaded characters, and a creepy, claustrophobic atmosphere keep the pages of  this explosive family drama turning".--Publisher's Weekly

Mystery Book Group
2:30 PM

Do you enjoy reading and discussing mystery novels? You'll find good company in a friendly group of readers who meet monthly in the library's Conference Room.

This month the group will discuss The Ragman's Memory by Archer Mayor:

The bizarre murders of two of Brattleboro's least distinguished citizens, the suspicious death in a nursing home of a cranky old lady, and the disappearance of a local political activist have Lieutenant Joe Gunther's small detective squad swamped. Worse, all the investigations seem to lead to the construction site of a convention center being financed by the Vermont town's two wealthiest men. Gunther knows that all the events are connected, but he's bucking the city's political power structure and a project that might inject a lot of needed money into the local economy. Still worse, the key to the whole case is locked in the shell-shocked mind of a World War II veteran.

"The Ragman's Memory  features at least a dozen wonderfully complex characters--cops, criminals, and victims alike--and offers another fascinating look at life on the mean streets of a small New England city."--Booklist
