Gallery Exhibition: Paper Playgrounds, Canvas Carnivals & Other Oddities by Meagan J. Meehan

Wednesday Mar 1, 2017 Friday Mar 31, 2017

Artist's Reception: Sunday, March 5th, 2:00 - 4:00 PM

For the month of March, the Library will exhibit Paper Playgrounds, Canvas Carnivals & Other Oddities by Meagan J. Meehan in the gallery. This exhibition seeks to promote joy, happiness, and playfulness. Amid the stresses of everyday life, the artwork of Meagan J. Meehan aims to be an amusing distraction: a means of delighting, entertaining, or even shocking viewers into smiling, pondering, and—at the very least—looking. The artwork seeks to invoke peoples’ perceptions and enable them to enter a world where there is no right or wrong, up or down, left or right, back or front; instead, there is only imagination and creativity. The exhibition seeks to provoke audiences to embrace the unusual, the colorful, and the joyful. It aims to play with the viewers’ perceptions, enlighten them to the shapes present in common (recycled) objects, and—most importantly—provide enjoyment.

First Friday Film Series presents: Citizen Kane (1941) 1 hr 59 min

Friday Mar 3, 2017, 7:30 p.m.

Monthly series: 1st Friday of every month. Free and open to public.

“Mr. Kane was a man who got everything he wanted, then lost it.”

Between the suggestions to feature more “serious” movies and the current political situation, it seems the time might be right for another viewing of Citizen Kane. The photographer in me gets giddy over the lush full-spectrum black and white tableaux, but the film features spectacular writing and performances to accompany the gorgeous cinematography.

Everyone knows the story of a thinly disguised William Randolph Hearst done up as Charles Foster Kane. Brilliantly conceived and played by Welles, Kane tells the story of the newspaperman and his climb to fame and power using newspapers as the vehicle of his ascent. Ultimately, his naked ambition and pursuit of power at the expense of personal relationships and human kindness leaves him alone, bitter and paranoid.

Spoiler alert: Rosebud is a sled. And in supreme cinematic style, viewers are let in on the secret, while nobody in the film has any idea what the old man is muttering about. As the camera lingers on the Rosebud branded sled, burning in the incinerator, it then turns upward, to reveal smoke, nothing but smoke, slowly diffusing into nothing.

And anyone reading this who wonders why we might be interested in this film at this particular juncture? Well, let’s just say you haven’t been paying attention to the be-robed magnate, wandering the halls of his mansion, alone, nobody but his fears and paranoia to keep the darkness at bay. “Rosebud,” indeed.

We’re going to be screening this stunning and unique film at the Piermont Public Library, Friday March 3rd, at 7:30 pm. FREE FREE FREE. Do join us, won’t you?
