Artist's Reception
Saturday, July 22
5 - 7 pm

"The Lake and the Woods" by Scott Zuckerman
 
Artist Scott Zuckerman’s show of wildlife oil paintings entitled “The Lake and the Woods” will be on exhibit from July 18 through August 26. 
 
In Scott’s words, “There is a rhythm in nature: the way branches grow, the patterns of grasses, the cryptic markings of birds and animals. If one can tap into such rhythms in a realistic way, one has an endlessly fascinating and limitless amount of subject matter. Birds and animals in the landscape should not be painted for their own sake, but for an artistic unity in the composition and context of their surroundings. The most important aspect of a painting is for it to be alive, radiating energy and moods.”

His exhibit will run through August 26.

 A screening of The Civic Life Project film Dawn of Decline will be held at the Cornwall Public Library on Sunday, October15th at 3PM. The 10 minute short was produced at the CLP summer workshop with 7 students from around the state of CT. Dawn of Decline looks at the challenges small towns like Cornwall and Falls Village face with declining school enrollment. There will be an information panel/ conversation. We hope to bring the citizens of our two towns together to learn about this issue. The program will be sponsored by Cornwall Library, Hunt Library in Falls Village and the Civic Life Project.
