Garance’s vivid canvases tell stories and capture her belief that color is the most important thing in life. Lisa Baglivi has been an acclaimed and beloved art teacher for over thirty years.
Come meet the artists at the Opening Reception 22 July 5-7pm in the Upstairs Gallery and learn how “The Creative Mind” is not a monolithic idea.
The Seymour Library welcomes Darlene Kascak of the Schaghticoke Tribal Nation. Ms. Kascak is the Education Director of the Institute for American Studies located in Washington, CT.
Ms. Kascak will explore Connecticut history from multiple perspectives to provide a more truthful and accurate understanding of our state's history. Indigenous Peoples called Connecticut home for over 12,000 years. Visual and tactile resources will be on hand and participants will learn the many ways that the Indigenous Peoples of Connecticut adapted to their changing environment and the impact European culture had on their lives. The Indigenous Peoples of Connecticut are still here and always are adapting to new ideas, new technologies yet their traditions and communities continue. They are still here.
