Works on Paper by Noted Avant-garde Artist Gertrude Barrer

 

Works on paper noted by noted Avant-garde artist Gertrude Barrer will be on display in the Gallery Space at the Woodbury Public Library during regular open hours in May.

Gertrude Barrer was born in 1921 in New York City and studied with Harry Sternberg at the Art Student's League from 1939-1942/43 and at the University of Iowa under noted artist Philip Guston. She has been increasingly credited by art historians as having been a leading contributor to American Modern Art. She and her husband, artist, Frank Russell, moved to Roxbury in 1959, and collaborated on such projects as ceramics, murals, illustrations, sculpture and prints. They were also deeply involved in the Connecticut art world.

Gertrude Barrer's work is included in numerous permanent collections, including at The Vatican; the United Nations Chapel in Geneva, Switzerland; the Cologne Cathedral, in Germany; the University of Maine; the Dayton Art Institute; Women's City Club of New York (now Women Creating Change); Bradford Museum, Chicago; the Harrison Museum at the State University of Utah; and the homes of many private collectors throughout the U.S. and Europe. Ms. Barrer has been quoted saying, "Art is a religion and a way of life to me. It involves intellect and constant learning, intellectual as well as just the craft of skills in any medium. I am a thinker who uses art as my discipline but I live in the world and must find my symbols in the world."  Barrer died in 1997.  Works on display are available to purchase through Clapp & Tuttle Gallery in Woodbury.

The Teen Diversity Book Club: Genesis Begins Again

TEENS! Join a monthly book group that celebrates diversity through great literature! Created for readers in grades 8-12, the group will meet monthly via Zoom.  The next book in the discussion series is Genesis Begins Again by Alicia D. Williams.  Genesis Begins Again is a Newbery and Kirkus Prize honor winner, a William C. Morris Award finalist, and the winner of the Coretta Scott King - John Steptoe Award for New Talent.  

There are ninety-six reasons why thirteen-year-old Genesis dislikes herself. She knows the exact number because she keeps a list:
-Because her family is always being put out of their house.
-Because her dad has a gambling problem. And maybe a drinking problem too.
-Because Genesis knows this is all her fault.
-Because she wasn’t born looking like Mama.
-Because she is too black.

Genesis is determined to fix her family, and she’s willing to try anything to do so…even if it means harming herself in the process. But when Genesis starts to find a thing or two she actually likes about herself, she discovers that changing her own attitude is the first step in helping change others. 

There are a limited amount of FREE copies of the book; register and recieve yours!  A Zoom link will be emailed to you prior to the first meeting.

1000 Books Before Kindergarten

Any child ages birth to five years can participate.
Traditionally children are enrolled in the program by an adult that lives in the same household, or that spends part of their day with them.

The Woodbury Public Library is encouraging grandparents to participate in the program. Reading to your grandchild, in person or via video chat, is a
rewarding way to nurture an intergenerational relationship.

Participants are given a log to track the books they read.  For every 100 books read, a sticker and book is awarded. Once 1,000 books are read, in addition to the sticker and book, the child is given a gift certificate to shop at the Book Cellar.

If you need guidance on how to have a video chat with your grandchild, Reference and Technology Librarian Ron Fairchild is available, by appointment, to guide you through the process. To schedule an appointment or for more information about 1,000 Book Before Kindergarten, please call the library at 203-263-3502.

1,000 Books Before Kindergarten is generously supported by The Friends of the Woodbury Public Library.
