Slide Slam: Making a Difference Digital Art Exhibition

Theme: Using your artistic abilities, express how you could make a positive change in your own community. This change could be helping someone in need; creating a garden to beautify your village or town; befriending a person or family whose background is different from your own; or any manner of expressing change to help better the world in which you and your neighbors live. Simply allow your heart and talent to guide you.

At this interactive art exhibit each work is projected onto a screen. The artist has 5 minutes to present their artwork, explaining each piece to the audience and their fellow artists. Artists may use work they have previously created that reflects the theme, or create art specifically for the show.

15 artists will have the opportunity participate.

Artists may submit up to five works of art.

Email jpeg images of your artwork to Donald at adult@pawlinglibrary.org.

Only images submitted by email will be accepted.

Deadline: May 4, 11:59 pm.

Artists notified of accepted work: May 17-19.

Audience members will have the chance to interact with the artists following the viewing.

By participating in this exhibition you are impacting the lives of others.

Inspire our community and contribute your dreams and reflections for all to experience.

This fast-paced art exhibition is designed to encourage community conversations and its inspiration is based on questions that arise from the PBS documentary American Creed.

This presentation has been made possible through a grant awarded to the Pawling Library by the American Library Association and a partnership with the Holmes Whaley Lake Civic Association and the Pawling Library.

To register for the Opening Reception please call the Pawling Library at 845-855-3444.

    Tuesday, April 14
    7:00-8:00 pm

    Television started in 1928 in Schenectady, New York but it was incubated in two laboratories, one in Pittsburgh in George Westinghouse’s Labs and the other in General Electric’s Lab. TV goes through growing pains including World War II. But when GI’s come home, they want their TV. They want to watch Ed Sullivan, Meet the Press, Uncle Miltie, Milton Berle, Joe Friday, Lucy and Desi and Ralph Kramden and even test patterns. TV also reflected society of the time. Blacklisting and Nat King Cole could not get a sponsor. Stroll down Memory Lane and get reacquainted with the 1940s and 1950s TV. The Early Days of TV. The programming looked cheap but it came right into the living room. Watching in front of stores, getting rid of rolling, snow and moving that antenna the right way.

    About our presenter: Evan Weiner, recognized globally as an expert in the politics of the sports business, produces a daily podcast on that topic in addition to being a regular on television and radio in both the United States and the United Kingdom, including appearances on BBC Radio, MSNBC and ABC television, and The Guardian newspaper in the U.K. Weiner has also written nine books and speaks in a variety of venues, including cruise ships, colleges, and libraries.

Think of it as meditating with a brush in your hand, eyes open! As you awaken this sense you’ll begin to transform, detaching from judgment which allows you to be more in the present moment. Come unlock your intuition and explore from within.

    This workshop provides a guided meditation with self-energy healing.

    Please wear comfortable clothing.
