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."

 You may view this beautiful display at this link:https://miltonlibrary.libguides.com/art     And if you would like to apply for an exhibit at the Library, Email Librarian Jean Hlady at jhlady@ocln.org

Let's Talk About Movies with Jean: Low Tide
7:00 PM - 8:30 PM

Librarian and film buff Jean Hlady offers another fun and informal Zoom discussion of the film "Low Tide" and encourages everyone to join her.  In this series we watch a good movie in advance and then chat about the characters and the plot plus much more.  To watch this 2019 title in advance for free, use your OCLN library card and sign up for an account at our library service called: Kanopy. To do this, go to our website:  www.miltonlibrary.org and click on "E-Resources" from the main page, then "Kanopy" and either sign in or create an account (it's easy!) to watch the film.  Then search for the title which is easily accessed. and for questions about this, Email jhlady@ocln.org or call the Reference Dept. at (617) 898-4964.

"Low Tide"  tells the story of Alan, Red, and Smitty who spend high summer on the Jersey Shore, roving the boardwalk and getting into trouble.  But the discovery of good old-fashioned treasure sets them on an escalating course of suspicion and violence in this atmospheric thriller.  It is rated R for language, some violence, and teen drug use.  The San Francisco Public Library says: "Horror? No.  Thriller? Barely.  More like, a pretty decent coming of age film."

You must sign up for the discussion in advance and use this link to do so: https://tinyurl.com/y5h8u7xz    Registration opens on July 11th.

A Zoom connection link will be Emailed to you on the day of the program, which is kindly sponsored by the Friends of the Milton Public Library.

Local History Book Group with Will
7:00 PM - 8:00 PM

Library Director Will Adamczyk will hold his "Local History Book Group" online via Zoom.  The book to be read in advance is Dark Tide by Stephen Puelo.   

Book Summary:   Around noon on January 15, 1919, a group of firefighters were playing cards in Boston’s North End when they heard a tremendous crash. It was like roaring surf, one of them said later. Like a runaway two-horse team smashing through a fence, said another. A third firefighter jumped up from his chair to look out a window—“Oh my God!” he shouted to the other men, “Run!” A 50-foot-tall steel tank filled with 2.3 million gallons of molasses had just collapsed on Boston’s waterfront, disgorging its contents as a 15-foot-high wave of molasses that at its outset traveled at 35 miles an hour. It demolished wooden homes, even the brick fire station. The number of dead wasn’t known for days. It would be years before a landmark court battle determined who was responsible for the disaster.

This program is kindly sponsored by the Friends of the Milton Public Library and is free and open to the public.  Please check out an enjoyable title about a unique incident in Boston history, and come chat with Will about it.

Advance registration is required at our website; a Zoom connection link will be Emailed to you on the day of the program.

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

This year's 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 talk will tell us about the event that shaped Ireland and stirred the emotions of the Irish people.  No other event 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.  He has 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!

 

Milton Reads 2020
Our 2020 book is....Voyage of Mercy by Stephen Puleo.
This year, the Library is excited to partner with the Forbes House Museum to create an even deeper Milton Reads Experience.
 
Voyage of Mercy: the USS Jamestown, the Irish Famine, and the Remarkable Story of America's First Humanitarian Mission is a compelling story of tragedy, initiative, generosity, and hope with a strong connection to the town of Milton.
 
This engaging book describes how shipping magnate Robert Bennet Forbes of Milton harnessed his wealth and influence to provide humanitarian support to Ireland during the Great Hunger, the famine in 1847. This mission became America's first international relief effort and established an everlasting connection between Boston and Ireland.
 
Virtual programs and events will continue throughout the year.
