Gallery Exhibition: New Work in Oil Pastel by Rena M. Berger

Monday Jan 1, 2018 Wednesday Jan 31, 2018

Opening Reception, Sunday, January 7th, 2 - 4 PM

For the month of January, the Dennis P. McHugh Piermont Public Library presents New Work in Oil Pastel by Rena M. Berger. Ms. Berger is a long-time Piermont resident and active member of the community. Her abstract work is alive with color and movement.

Ms. Berger describes her work as follows:

My work is intuitive.

I love line and color.

In using line, color and shapes, unexpected relationships happen.

I think that sometimes my work relates to geology, how I imagine earth before we were here.

It takes time looking at my work to see the relationships that are there.

My work is also about the imperfections of my process.

A reception for the artist will be held on Sunday, January 7th, from 2 - 4 PM. All are welcome.

Music Classes for Children

Tuesday Jan 16, 2018, 11:45 a.m.

Monthly: meets 3rd Tuesday of each month.

Free music education for young children and parents/caregivers, held in the Henderson Children's Room of the Dennis P. McHugh Piermont Public Library. Presented by Moon River Music Together with Flo Labaze, the class will explore how the early childhood program of Music Together® teaches music through play.

Young children are given the opportunity to develop basic competence in music by providing them with a rich musical experience in a relaxed and playful environment.

Catherine Rubin, Director of Moon River Mother and Child, believes that every child is musical and that each child needs a stimulating, supportive music environment to enjoy the wonderful human capacity for music-making.

WIP it up Wednesdays: Works-in-Progress Craft Club

Wednesday Jan 17, 2018, noon 1 p.m.

Every Wednesday, January 10 - 31.

An open invitation to crafters:

We all have those craft projects sitting unfinished in a tote or a drawer, on a shelf or a table. We start with the best intentions and tons of enthusiasm, then put our hobby on hold when other priorities take over, or we hit a roadblock creatively.

Setting aside time, putting it on the calendar, and committing can be all it takes to get you back to work. That’s where “WIP it up Wednesday” comes in. It is simply a time to set aside for your projects, and to come together with other crafters who can offer input and encouragement.

Come to the library with that project you’ve been meaning to get back to, whether you’re knitting your first sweater or still putting together your teenager’s “baby” scrapbook, and whip it up with us. No judgments, just fun, social time to work on your unfinished projects with other crafters.

No registration required. Just drop in and join us.
