Recent Paintings by Donna M. Horn

March 6 to May 2, 2015

The Wendell Free Library is pleased to present an exhibition of new work by Donna M. Horn, Wendell resident. Donna received a local Cultural Council grant last year to produce a series of paintings focused on monsters, ten of which are featured here. These works continue a series Donna has been working on for years. In addition to these, she includes a number of recent paintings in which she experiments with new materials. The combination makes for an intriguing show which will delight all viewers.

First Steps in Spoken Irish/ Chéad Chéime sa Gaeilge

On Thursday Evenings

7:00 - 8:30 PM

Instructor: Jim Dunn

Spoken mainly in the West of Ireland, Irish is a Gaelic language closely related to Scots Gael, Welsh, and Breton. With a goal of conversational skills, our meetings will explore the cultural and historical context of Irish through film, song and discussion. The course will be fun and easy, and you will be able to converse in Irish by its end.

Jim is an escaped academic, with PhD specialties in Old Irish and Modern Irish Literature. He has broad experience in teaching languages and literature at the college level and is published in the field. He is an Irish citizen, visits the Gaeltacht yearly, and speaks Irish.

The text is Buntus Cainte, with CD. Class size is limited to 4-8 participants. To register for this free course, contact the Wendell Free Library, 978-544-7090, or email Jim,
