Oresman Gallery to Feature Historic Photographs And Abstract Art in April @ Larchmont Public Library
Apr 1 @ 2:00 am – Apr 29 @ 10:00 am

During April, the Larchmont Public Library’s Oresman Gallery will feature two unique and very different exhibits. LEISURE IN LARCHMONT features historic photographs of people in Larchmont from over 100 years ago and ABSTRACT ART features work created by students in Diane Davis’ abstract art workshop held at the Library in March.

 

There will be an Artist Reception honoring the abstract art students and Dane Davis in the Oresman Gallery on Saturday, April 6 between 2 and 4 pm. The reception is open to the public.

 

Diane Davis has been teaching art to adults and children in a variety of locations around New York City for over 15 years. She is the recipient of numerous scholarships and her work is featured in permanent collections including that of the prestigious Schomberg Center for Research in Black Culture in Manhattan.

Simultaneous with Abstract Art, the Gallery will feature LEISURE IN LARCHMONT, an exhibit of rare historic photographs of people in Larchmont from over 100 years ago. The Larchmont Historical Society, curated by Archivist Lynne Crowley, are providing the photographs. Many are unusual and humorous, and to capitalize on this, the Historical Society is hosting a “caption the photo” contest. Any time during the exhibit one can submit a caption for the photos (the Society asks that captions be kept clean). The captions submitted will be revealed and winners announced on Saturday, April 27, in a reception from 2pm to 4pm in the Gallery.

 

There will be a celebration of LEISURE IN LARCHMONT in the Oresman Gallery on Saturday, April 27 between 2 and 4 pm, when the winners of the photo caption contest winners will be announced. The celebration is open to the public.

#MyLibraryMyStory Spoken Word Event @ New Rochelle Public Library
Apr 7 @ 8:30 am – 10:00 am

READ 650 will help the New Rochelle Council on the Arts and The New Rochelle Public Library Foundation kick off National Library Week with a spoken word event on Sunday, April 7th at 3:30 pm in the Ossie Davis Theater at the New Rochelle Public Library. The event is free and open to the public; a reception will follow.

The theme, #MyLibraryMyStory, was chosen to celebrate the contributions of our nation’s libraries and librarians. Writers were asked to “take us into your memory stacks and tell us about the unforgettable book or the dusty nook or the librarian’s look that’s become a dog-eared page in your life story”. 

First sponsored in 1958, National Library Week is an annual celebration highlighting the valuable role libraries, librarians and library workers play in transforming lives and communities. Sponsored by the American Library Association, this year’s theme is Libraries = Strong Communities, and the Honorary Chair is Melinda Gates. Over the last 20 years, Gates has invested more than $1 billion through her foundation’s Global Libraries initiative to enhance the power of libraries to improve lives.

READ 650’s mission is to promote writers and writing through live performances that celebrate the spoken word. It’s a literary forum for true personal stories—two pages and 650 words long, read aloud by the writer before an audience. Writers featured in the live events are coached and rehearsed in order to present them and their work in the best possible light. Individual readings are professionally recorded for the video archive and YouTube channel, and many writers are showcased and promoted in e-blasts, podcasts, broadcasts, and printed anthologies.

The New Rochelle Council on the Arts was created by the New Rochelle City Council in 1975 to stimulate and encourage the study and presentation of the performing and fine arts; for 40 years NRCA has worked to fulfill that mission by sponsoring art exhibitions, theatrical productions, dance recitals, film screenings, lectures, and concert series. In addition, NRCA has sponsored public art and created ArtsFest, while helping to build relationships between the arts, the business community and city government. For more information visit NRCA on the web at www.newrochellearts.org. NRCA’s programs are made possible, in part, by ArtsWestchester with funds from Westchester County Government, the City of New Rochelle, and the support and participation of NRCA’s membership.

The New Rochelle Public Library Foundation is a volunteer fundraising and advocacy organization working to ensure the future well-being of the Library. The NRPL Foundation, created in 1993, supports Library initiatives that enhance opportunities for learning, exploration and public discourse. Among the Foundation’s recent contributions, it provided more than $106,000 to partially underwrite the cost of the remodel of the Ossie Davis Theater; along with new seating and exterior signage and entrance work, the upgrade includes assistive listening technology, greater accessibility and upgraded fire suppression, HVAC and other systems. For more information call the NRPL Foundation at 914-632-7878, ext. 1600 or email info@nrplfoundation.org.
