Norfolk Library Art Opening Reception: Nanci Worthington

11/05/2017

9 Greenwoods Rd. East, Norfolk, CT

4-6 pm. Nanci Worthington describes her work as a naturalist's meditation on process, from journal to photo to drawing and painting. Her journals, both written and visual, are a way to translate the visceral experience of her observations in the wilderness. What does it feel like to be a trout lily? What stories do the sounds of the forests make? Can you smell a change in the terrain? If so, how does it change how you see it? Using all of her senses to "see" the natural world around her, she hopes to codify through her art the experience of open perception. The opening reception for the artist is graciously hosted by the Library Associates.

"With You There is Light:" Author Talk with Alexandra Lehmann Tuesday, November 7th at 7:00 pm in the Meeting Room. He told her what he witnessed. What she did with the truth changed history. As a founding member of the White Rose student resistance in Munich during World War II, Sophie Scholl helped write, produce and distribute thousands of anti-Nazi leaflets all over Southern Germany and Austria. Sophie's boyfriend, Captain Fritz Hartnagel, served on the Western and Eastern fronts. Fritz witnessed SS and army atrocities and wrote Scholl about them. This information propelled Sophie deeper into political activism against their country's dictator. Sophie Scholl and Fritz Hartnagel's relationship demonstrates the moral complexity of living in a totalitarian society, and is ultimately, a love story. Please register so we know how many to expect.
