Exhibit - Without Memory: New Work by Celeste Morton

Friday May 1, 2015 Saturday May 30, 2015

Celeste Morton, a Brooklyn-based artist who grew up in Piermont and Tappan, will have her oil paintings on display at the Piermont Public Library for the month of May. Her show is entitled, "Without Memory" and the reception will be held Sunday, May 3rd from 2-4 p.m.

Ms. Morton writes about this series of work, "My oil paintings are all based on family photographs, ranging from polaroids depicting childhood moments to adults posing and not posing in different settings. [...] Through my paintings I am communicating the resilience as well as the limitations and ambiguity of memory. The content in my paintings also display moments of childhood innocence, imbued with a sense of the unknown."

"Chef" presented by 1st Friday Film Series

Friday May 1, 2015

Please note that there will not be First Friday Film screening at the library in April.

Film strip

Monthly series: 1st Friday of every month.

Free and open to public.

May 1st movie: Chef.

Word from Marc Farre:

May 1 will make the 9th year since we began the First Friday Film series at Piermont Library. I never thought it would go on so long!

But I’m glad it has. And it continues…

As is our custom, I’ll be screening a FOOD-related movie for our anniversary. And it’s a delicious one: CHEF, written, directed by and starring Jon Favreau. But there’s also Scarlett Johansen, Dustin Hoffman, John Leguizamo and Sofia Vergara and many other pleasures along the way.

You might call CHEF a comfort food movie. I think you’ll enjoy it. But whatever you do, don’t arrive hungry! (Still save a little room for dessert, because the library will be offering you free cupcakes to celebrate.)
