Zentangle, ZenDoodling, Adult Coloring... Nov 16 & 19

It's the new craze...meditative drawing, adult coloring, zentangle...basically using writing implements to scribble away the stress. If you like or want to try zentangling or coloring, join Lynn Gauthier, retired art teacher who has found so much enjoyment in teaching art that she would like to continue sharing her love of art with others who want to learn new techniques or just meet up and share art together. The library will supply regular copy paper, colored pencils and a few sharpies. If you would like to bring your own supplies, they are welcome!


Doc-Talk: Salt of the Earth - Nov 18 (SOCC)

Join Calvert Library Southern Branch for an exclusive screening of the acclaimed film based on the life of photographer SebastiĆ£o Salgado. The documentary gracefully straddles the line between moral and aesthetic paradoxes. Salgado's photographs depict some of the worst horrors of the modern world: refugees, famine, war, and poverty, they are also stunningly dramatic visual artifacts giving their power double effect. As a viewer you are drawn into the examination of appalling truths, but at the same time your attention turns to the photographer and his art. Come see this transformative and affirming documentary.
