Art Talk
2:00 PM - 3:00 PM

Art Talk with Cherise Klebanov  

Topic : Dabs and Dots - Focusing on Impressionism and Pointillism 

We are honored to have back Cherise Klebanov, Director of the Nu-Garde Gallery. Join us for the third in a four part series of Art Talks focusing on contemporary art history from the new Whitney Museum, to the art of Rococo, Impressionism and the psychological visual experiences of Surrealism. 

Cherise's interest and dedication to art and technology is a combination of genetics and pure passion. She was raised by a cultural arts director and a software designer. By the age of 20, she had completed a Master's Degree from The London School of Economics in International History and Economics. What piqued her curiosity and interest was not so much the history of politics and economics, but rather the literature, customs, and cultural elements of history.  Cherise began teaching art history courses as an adjunct professor at Westchester Community College. The perpetual student at heart decided to go back to school and completed a second Master's Degree from Christies Education in New York in the History of Art and Art Business: Modern and Contemporary. Cherise further focused and specialized in video and new media art, leading her to write her thesis on a contemporary video artist, entitled Detached Dystopia: The (Re/De) Construction of Identity in Ryan Trecartin's Any Ever.

LTS Poetry Workshop
2:30 PM - 4:30 PM

The Brenda Connor-Bey Learning to See™ Legacy Workshop Series focuses on writing poems about art, and exploring all creative writing, as well as other ways to "see" poetry through the "ekphrastic" style. (Ekphrasis = “Description” in Greek. An ekphrastic poem is a vivid description of a scene or, more commonly, a work of art.) 

Students enroll for three-session workshops of two hours each. Partially funded by the Friends of Greenburgh Library and Greenburgh Arts & Culture, workshops are free and open to the public. Beginners as well as established poets are welcomed. Participants are strongly encouraged to attend all three sessions. After registration limit is reached, a Wait List will be formed and students contacted as spaces become available. Teacher: Tania Guerrera

How to Buy a New Computing Device with Dr. Pierre Darmon
6:30 PM - 8:30 PM

Dr. Pierre Darmon will give a FREE presentation on How to Buy a New Computing Device.  Dr. Darmon will take questions from the audience.

No Registration Required.

Once in a while, everyone needs a new computer (or tablet or phone), especially if you are still hanging on to one running Windows XP (ahem) or even Vista, 7 or 8.1, that may not be worth upgrading. There are so many choices out there, what should you consider? What are the questions you should ask yourself before giving away that end of year bonus, or your tax refund, to the next web retailer or brick and mortar store.

Desktop? Laptop? Ultrabook? Chromebook? Tablet? Large screen? Small screen? How much memory is right for me? Do I spend money on Bluetooth, a DVD burner, more memory or a larger hard disk? An SSD? How many USB ports is sufficient?

The list of questions you may be asking yourself goes on and on. It can be overwhelming, and so are the choices out there. We'll try to make some sense out of this maze. Come find out how to select a computer that will fit your needs ....... and budget.

Dr. Pierre Darmon has been in the IT industry for over 30 years. He held many management and non-management positions at IBM, where he worked in all 6 major business units of IBM, including Research and the recently created Watson Health. He helped develop various technologies, including data mining, virtual reality, integration solutions for the industrial sector, and Watson, among others. Current President of the Westchester PC Users Group (WPCUG), Dr. Darmon is a PC/Mac Computer Support and Education Consultant, serving small businesses and individuals. He regularly teaches workshops on many different technology topics at various venues throughout Westchester, including Temple Kol Ami, SCORE Westchester, the Greenburgh Public Library, and WPCUG.

GPL Cooks! Meet-Up
11:00 AM - 12:30 PM

Welcome to the GPL Cooks! Cookbook Meet Up. This is a group that gathers about 3 – 4 times a year to try out new cooking traditions and styles using cookbooks from the library’s collection. Participants check out one of a selection of cookbooks, try some of the recipes, and bring one of their favorite creations to our meet up! If you like to cook, discuss cooking, and feel like trying something new—this event is for you!

The GPL Cooks cookbook club is looking for people who like to cook, eat and talk about food. Members prepare food at home from recipes found in the library's cookbook collection. As food is shared, the discussion focuses on preparation, ingredients and what we've learned from preparing this dish.

This fall we will be focusing on American Regional Cuisine from New England to Hawaii, tasting and discussing what makes each region unique. Does the climate affect the cuisine? How do the cooking style and ingredients differ in each region?

Registration is required.

Rockwood Hall: Inside and Out
7:00 PM - 8:30 PM

 

 Developed by William A. Rockefeller in 1884, his estate “Rockwood Hall” in Mt. Pleasant was declared “the second most impressive home in America.” Vanderbilt’s “Biltmore” in North Carolina was the first. The mansion itself contained 200 - rooms and no expense was spared in its’ design, construction, and furnishings. Spanning nearly 1,000 – acres along the Hudson, equal precision was put to the design of the estate landscape, gardens, out buildings and carriage trails. However, by 1941 it would all be gone. Shrouded in mystery, the remaining foundation and terraced staircases only adds to the allure and intrigue for the many that visit what is now “Rockwood Hall Park.”

No registration required.

Local Historian and Researcher Paul Barrett invites us on a tour of this once commanding Gilded-Age estate. Relying on photographs and images (most never available to the general public), his presentation “Rockwood Hall - Inside and Out” will take us around the mansion, into the main hall, through many of the opulently furnished interior rooms, and then guide us through the expansive out-of-doors with views of the lush gardens and estate buildings

 Title:  The Statues That Walked: Unraveling the Mystery of Easter Island  by, Terry Hunt and Carl Lipo     Ever wonder how the inhabitants of remote Easter Island built and  moved the many multi-ton monoliths for which the island is so renowned?  Or why the highly sophisticated culture that would have been necessary to produce such monumental statues descended into what has been described as the “sparsely populated wasteland” that the Europeans encountered there?  Archaeological studies of the island by the authors resulted in some surprising answers to these questions.  They are ours to discover.

Art Talk with Cherise Klebanov 

Topic:  Surrealism - A Psychological and Visual Exploration

We are honored to have back Cherise Klebanov, Director of the Nu-Garde Gallery. Join us for the final lecture from our four part series of Art Talks focusing on contemporary art history from the new Whitney Museum, to the art of Rococo, Impressionism and the psychological visual experiences of Surrealism. 

Cherise's interest and dedication to art and technology is a combination of genetics and pure passion. She was raised by a cultural arts director and a software designer. By the age of 20, she had completed a Master's Degree from The London School of Economics in International History and Economics. What piqued her curiosity and interest was not so much the history of politics and economics, but rather the literature, customs, and cultural elements of history.  Cherise began teaching art history courses as an adjunct professor at Westchester Community College. The perpetual student at heart decided to go back to school and completed a second Master's Degree from Christies Education in New York in the History of Art and Art Business: Modern and Contemporary. Cherise further focused and specialized in video and new media art, leading her to write her thesis on a contemporary video artist, entitled Detached Dystopia: The (Re/De) Construction of Identity in Ryan Trecartin's Any Ever.
