The Wendell Free Library is proud to host a memorial exhibition of Sara Clearwater Liberty’s fabric art from September 6th to October 31st. While Clearwater was well known and loved by many Wendellians, this is the first time her art work has been shown publicly in our community. A selection of twenty-three pieces from private collections fills the gallery space and make for an intimate and tactile experience. In addition there is a landscape tapestry on permanent display above the video section in the library, courtesy of the Wendell Cultural Council, and a large quilt hanging across from the circulation desk. In mid-October the Library display case will hold some of Clearwater’s floor coverings and small tapestries.
Clearwater wrote, “My work is a way for me to express my love of color, the transformative power of spirit moving through all things.”
We welcome you to join us in celebrating her work at a memorial reception at the Library on Saturday, October 17, from 4-6:00pm.

"Elvira Mistress Of The Dark", Saturday October 17, 2015 at 7:30pm

E-mail Print

Rated PG-13 (adult situations/language, violence) When her Great Aunt dies, famed horror hostess Elvira heads for the uptight New England town of Falwell to claim her inheritance of a haunted house, a witch's cookbook and a punk rock poodle. But once the stuffy locals get an eyeful of the scream queen's ample assets, all hell busts out and breaks loose. Can the Madonna Of The Macabre find love with a studly cinema owner, avoid her creepy Great Uncle, titillate the town's teens and become a Las Vegas dance sensation all without being burned alive at the stake?
