Virtual Art Exhibit by Painter Garcia Thompson

There will be a virtual exhibit of paintings by the talented painter Garcia Thompson shown as a LibGuide at our website. Garcia's paintings celebrate Black History and Africa, but also include many wonderful themes using colorful and vibrant hues to represent them.   Mr. Thompson is a Jamaican-born artist who immigrated to the U.S. as a child at the age of 13.  He has always had a love for the arts since he was a young boy, primarily drawing and painting.  As a young child in church, his mother would give him a pen and paper to keep him entertained during workship services.  Garcia kept his interest in the arts all the way up to high school where he attended Madison Park Technical Vocational High.  There he studied commercial design which helped him to obtain a scholarship to Massachusetts College of Art.  While studying at MassArt, he worked at the Boston Museum of Fine Arts to help pay for art supplies.  At the Museum he was inspired by the work of others as he was exposed to some of the great master painters such as Van Gogh, Monet, and Manet.  Two artists whose paintings fuel his work today are Justin Bua and Frank Morison.  You will find similarities to them in Garcia's paintings in their expressive use of bold colors and urban subject matter.

Over the years Garcia has entered and won several art competitions and shows, and has had his work displayed in some prestigious places.  Some of the most notable are the school of the Museum of Fine Arts, for the "MFA staff show," and "The Artist's Studio at Patriot Place in Foxborough, MA.  He has also received honorable mention in the New Yorker magazine cover competition.  Most recently in February 2020, life came full circle for him when he was one of the first artists to be invited to display his work at the Boston Museum of Fine Arts'  Black History Month celebration called "Black Expressions."  His work has also been purchased by a few medical offices in the Boston area, and you can find some of his paintings in the waiting area of the Opthamalogy Dept. at Dedham Medical/Atrius Health in Norwood, and at Afinity Dental also in Norwood.   Garcia is also a published illustrator who has drawn pictures for two childrens books by author Carey Azzara in a series called "Heidi's Hounds,"  which are available on Amazon.com. 

The artist says about his work: "I know that I am blessed with a special gift from God and I want to use my talent as a tool of inspiration for all."

Milton Reads Talk: The Great Hunger/Famine of Ireland 1845-1852
7:00 PM - 8:30 PM

In 2020 "Milton Reads" chosen book is Voyage of Mercy by Stephen Puleo. As part of this program, historian Sean Murphy will give a virtual talk called "The Great Hunger/Famine 1845-1852."    This presentation will tell us about the event that shaped Ireland and stirred the emotions of the Irish people.  No other deprivation demonstrates so clearly the failure of British colonial policy in Ireland.  After 300 years of conquest and desctruction, a huge number of Irish people were reduced to destitution, poverty, illiteracy, and were made dependent on the potato by government policy and landlord greed. 

Sean Murphy is an Irish historian, Irish music and dance teacher, and he teaches through the Irish Cultural Center of NE in Canton, Cape Cod Sons of Erin, Cape Cod Cultural Center, the Cotuit Center for the Arts and at venues on Nantucket.  Mr. Murphy received several awards for his work as a supporter of the culture and heritage of Ireland.  He also leads a traditional Irish music session in O'Shea's Old Inne in West Dennis.  He was born and lived as a child in Dulbin and moved to Cape Cod in 2005.  He plays and teaches the tin whistle.

This program is proudly sponsored by the Friends of the Milton Public Library and is free and open to the public.  You can register here and once signed up, a Zoom connection link will be Emailed to you on the day of the program.  Please join us for a fascinating story!

Virtual Exhibit: Painter David Dauer and Floral Arrangements

Milton Painter David Dauer will show a virtual exhibit of his work at our website this month.   "Floral Arrangements," new work by artist David Dauer represents a transition over the past two years from his surrealistic stories to a new world of nature and life, using flowers as the vehicle to tell his stories.  In his new work, he develops abstract structures with rich textures to create a vibrant underpainting.  With that done, he draws his imagery and then paints using color washes and thick paint to create color.  He says: "Flowers, and in some cases landscapes, are the vehicle to convey my visual conversations.  Flowers represent more than what we see in the natural world.  They represent all life and the interactions we experience around us."  

David holds both a BFA (UMass,Dartmouth) and an MFA (Kent State U) with continued studies in design from UMass Dartmouth.  He has participated in group and solo shows.  For over 30 years, he worked in the Publishing and Advertising fields as a designer, art director and creative director.  Born in Brooklyn, NY, he grew up in Framingham, MA.  For 35 years he lived in Milton, MA until recently settling in Canton, MA with his wife Debbie.  You can see the exhibit starting 10/1 at:  https://miltonlibrary.libguides.com/art

David's website is: http://dbauerstudiostore.com

Alaska, Bears and Beyond with Photographer Joy Marzolf
7:00 PM - 8:30 PM

Joy Marzolf, naturalist and former program coordinator for the Audubon, will present a program called "Alaska, Bears and Beyond."  Alaska is often regarded as a last frontier and one of the last places to see numerous large wildlife.  Through the Kenai fiords, small boats allow close access to thundering, calving glaciers, breaching humpback whales, dozing Steller sea lions and playful sea otters.  Along the way bald eagles, puffins, murres and other sea birds abound.  Accessible only by bush plane, the ocean beaches of the Lake Clark National Wildlife Refuge are a litte-known area for brown bear viewing.  In this open landscape, brown bears can be easily observed fishing, playing, napping and raising their young.  Just north of Anchorage, the landscape shifts between tertile valley fields and the majestic views and crystal-clear streams of mountain glaciers.  Join us as we tour parts of this diverse state now experiencing increasing change in the modern world. 

Advance registration is required; a Zoom connection link will be Emailed to participants on the day of the program.  It is helpful to download the Zoom connection app to your electronic device beforehand.  This event is kindly sponsored by the Friends of the Milton Public Library and is free and open to the public. Please join us for a fun and entertaining talk!

Experience Ireland through the Songs, Music, Dance and Comedy of its Greatest Entertainers

Local Irish historian, music and dance teacher Sean Murphy will give an online presentation designed to "lift your spirits" as we all work towards bringing a speedy and safe transition back to some kind of normality.

Mr. Murphy teaches through the Irish Cultural Center of NE in Canton, Cape Cod Sons of Erin, Cape Cod Cultural Center, the Cotuit Center for the Arts and at venues on Nantucket. He received several awards for his work as a supporter of the culture and heritage of Ireland.  He also leads a traditional Irish music session in O'Shea's Old Inne in West Dennis.  Sean was born and lived as a child in Dublin and moved to Cape Cod in 2005.  He also plays and teaches the tin whistle.
