Nino Tsereteli's art will be displayed in the Chase Room this summer. Nino works in a variety of media, but primarily in oil and pastel. Her works are in numerous private collections, and have been in various exhibitions. Nino completed her fine art education at Nikoladze Art College in Tbilisi, Republic of Georgia. Stop by the Chase Room soon and see her colorful paintings.
Celebrate the Library’s summer reading theme ‘Libraries Rock’, and enter the world of music as the Library's Jeff Payton discusses and plays some of the seminal albums of progressive rock.
First up in this proposed series is Rush’s fourth album, 2112, from 1976. A futuristic take on individuality in an unbending, mechanized society, this ‘storytelling’ music is alternately hard and soft, violent and gentle, tragic and uplifting. And the three musicians’ abilities are impeccable—among the best at their respective instruments at the time, and maybe of all time.
Enjoy the immersive experience (both aural and visual) of this music from beginning to end and contribute to the discussion of the album, its cover art, trivia, and the album’s artistic impact. Whether you attend to just enjoy the music, or to participate in the discussion and relate your experiences of the album, the evening should prove to be an enjoyable experience.
Come and enjoy this fantastic album with us. Free. Register here.
