ZOOM- Children’s Beginner’s Painting Class
Jun 3
West Tisbury Free Public Library
1042 State Road, Vineyard Haven, MA, MA 02568

Wednesday, June 3 from 3:00 pm to 3:45 pm

West Tisbury Free Public Library

We will begin with the basics, composition, drawing, lights and darks. From there we shall paint… learning as we go that shadows & light tell us the time of day and the direction of the sunlight. Once painted on our paper, we will begin to see the composition. We will learn that objects in the background are muted in order to make those objects fall back. Objects closer to us have warmer colors. These variations bring weight to the painting, an organization that presents a grounded theme familiar to all but of course with the artist’s particular vision adding a twist. We will learn that it is the artist who decides the story of the painting. Email mlawson@clamsnet.org for the ZOOM log in to join. Classes will meet 6/3, 6/10, 6/17, 6/24. About the teacher: Valentine works from her studio in West Tisbury. She paints plein air and in-studio. Her work has been shown in Provincetown, Boston, New York, Malibu, La Jolla and on Martha’s Vineyard at Old Sculpin Gallery in Edgartown.

Online Conversation: Eileen Powers, "Can You Make Hair For Me?"
Jun 5
Nantucket Atheneum
1 India Street, Nantucket, MA 02554

Friday, June 5 from 7:00 pm to 8:15 pm

Nantucket Atheneum

The Nantucket Atheneum's Amy Jenness will interview photographer Eileen Powers, who talks about her Can You Make Hair For Me? project. When she was diagnosed with Lymphoma in 2018, Eileen asked friends and colleagues to get creative and make hair for her while she underwent chemotherapy. ' It took weeks before I could view my bald head in the mirror. But once I did, I began trying to think of positive ways I could help other people through my art.' Almost two years later, Eileen is cancer-free and has photographed herself in almost 80 hair pieces made from a huge variety of materials. Her images have been exhibited at Massachusetts General Hospital and at 'Artoma: The Art of Cancer' in Chicago. In June, they will be featured in 'Blossom Fighting Cancer' in Paris, France. Join us for a look at these powerful images and a discussion about how art can connect and help heal. The conversion will be streamed live on the Atheneum's YouTube Channel.

Virtual Margin Alexander Piano Concert

Oak Bluffs Library
56R School Street, Oak Bluffs, MA 02557

Sunday, June 7 from 7:00 pm to 8:00 pm

Oak Bluffs Library

Join freelance composer/pianist Margin Alexander for a live concert on Facebook! https://www.facebook.com/illuminateobThe concert will also be shared on our website after airing. Margin Alexander’s music is a genre comprised of pieces with Neo-classical, Neo-romantic and cinematic nuances. His music is almost always preceded by brief descriptions of each piece by the composer himself, in order to convey the wanted imagery. The composer likes to experiment with form and dynamics as well as with a variety of unorthodox harmonies, that make his music unique and define his style. The pieces range from preludes to suites, toccatas, technical etudes, chamber music, piano nocturnes and they all tell a story. Quite often, Mr. Alexander likes to premiere new pieces at almost each concert and interact with the audience in between performances.  Margin B. Alexander is an East Coast based composer/pianist from the New York City area. He avidly performs around the world as a freelance composer/pianist on various offered artistic commissions and also as a guest artist. Some of his most notable performances have taken place at Carnegie Hall, Musee d’art Moderne et d’art Contemporain de Nice, IBLA Grand Prize of Ragusa and Opera America in Manhattan. Margin studied piano and music composition both at Rowan University & Montclair State University under Harold Oliver and Robert Aldridge (Grammy Award US Composer.) Throughout his musical career, Mr. Alexander has had numerous opportunities to perform mainly across the United States, Europe and parts of Asia. He enjoys performing his own music. At the moment, film music and concert touring are his most important projects.

Check out this fabulous film list created by the Edgartown Library: Virtual Film Series: Lost in Austen (all films available for free on Kanopy and Hoopla!) Mansfield Park Director Patricia Rozema’s adaptation departs in a few ways from the original, but stays true to its spirit. The excellent cast and beautiful production make this a must-see for Austen fans. (1999) (H) Emma With equal parts creamy English charm and biting social satire, this version of Emma remains among the best of the Austen film adaptations. A note-perfect Gwyneth Paltrow in the title role heads a fine cast. Directed by Douglas McGrath. (1996) (H) Northanger Abbey Austen’s slight but entertaining parody of Gothic fiction tells the tale of an overly imaginative young woman, steeped in the lurid novels of the day. A nice cast is led by Felicity Jones. Directed by Jon Jones. (2008) (H) Bride and Prejudice Austen meets Bollywood in this fun, frothy, and way over-the-top musical. A winning cast makes it all work. Somewhere Jane Austen is giggling. Directed by Gurinder Chadha. (2005) (H)

Hey all! Listen, we love movies, and we hope you love movies. But we also love books, and rather than pick between the two we thought why not combine them into a brand new book club? Introducing The Mind Readers. This virtual book club is open to everyone over the age of 18. Join us for a virtual meeting where we chat about books, movies, and books that became movies! If this sounds like your kind of thing, send us an email at jthornton@clamsnet.org or ecarta@clamsnet.org. We'll reply with a link to the meeting that you can save ahead of time. In case you're wondering why we're asking for email registration, it's to prevent any incidents like Zoom Bombings. We'll also be using the email list to send out a reminder the day of the meeting, and a wrap up of all the movies and books we chatted about. Lastly, even though this book club is intended for the 18+ age range feel free to read books/watch movies from the YA or Children's genre if you want! There are some really great movies made from YA/J books. (ex: The Hobbit. Need we say more?) Stay safe everyone, and we hope to see you here!

Fired Up to Read

Tuesday, June 30 All Day

Brooks Free Library

Fired Up for Reading is the reading challenge we’re hosting in partnership with the Harwich Fire Department (thanks HFD!). Head over to our Stuck @ Home page and look for the reading challenge section to sign up. So what is the challenge exactly? It’s pretty straightforward. Once you register you’ll be able to log the time you’ve spent doing any activity while you’re staying home to help flatten the curve. Yes, we do mean any activity. If you walk your pet, or pick up sticks in your yard, that counts! We know it’s called a “reading” challenge but even we are having trouble getting into books right now. We get it, so that’s why we’re saying all activities count. If you log over five hours of time you’ll be entered to win the grand prize– being Chief for a day at the Harwich Fire Department and getting to ride on one of their lovely engines. There might be a tour involved too, or so we hear! Two winners will be chosen once the challenge is over, one from the over 18 age group and one from the under 18 age group. The challenge’s final day is still TBD (ignore the dates on this event, Facebook made us choose something to post this). It’ll probably be once things are looking more normal, so go ahead and start logging your hours. If you have questions, send us an email or DM us on Facebook or Instagram! May the odds be ever in your favor. https://www.facebook.com/events/973229769798379/?acontext=%7B%22ref%22%3A51%2C%22source%22%3A5%2C%22action_history%22%3A[%7B%22surface%22%3A%22page%22%2C%22mechanism%22%3A%22main_list%22%2C%22extra_data%22%3A%22%5C%22[]%5C%22%22%7D]%2C%22has_source%22%3Atrue%7D
