The Breathing Landscape, by Linda Ruel Flynn of Orange, Massachusetts

July 1 through August 31, 2014, Tuesdays 3-6; Wednesdays 10-8; Saturdays 9:30-3:30

Marion Herrick Room Gallery

The series of seven pieces are made of thread, stains, paint and a tiny piece of broken pottery on linen. Each work hangs on clothes pins secured to a narrow wood bar. The works are personal and intimate, playful and contemplative, redolent with associations.

You are welcome to meet the artist at her reception, Saturday, July 19th, 1:00-3:30 PM in the Gallery.

Saturday, August 30, 2014 at 7:30PM

I Bury the LivingThrough a series of macabre "coincidences," the newly-elected director of a cemetery (Richard Boone) begins to believe that he can cause the deaths of living owners of burial plots by merely changing the push-pin color from white (living) to black (dead) on a large wall map of the cemetery that notes those plots.

All Welcome


Playgroup with Sylvia

Sylvia's awesome playgroup is held most Wednesdays 10 - 11:30 am

Children ages newborn to five and their guardians are welcome to attend.

Silvia has a sand table and lots of other activities to engage participants. Parents enjoy socializing with their peers just as much as the kids do with each other.

The program is co-sponsored by Union #28 Community Partnership for Children and the Wendell Free Library.

Please note: the playgroup is not held on school vacation days or school snow days.
