    Contact: Priya Rathnam   508-841-8531   prathnam@cwmars.org
   

Ted Reinstein has been a reporter for “Chronicle,” WCVB-TV/Boston’s award-winning—and America’s longest-running, locally-produced—nightly news magazine since 1997. In addition, he is a regular contributor for the station’s political roundtable show and writes a weekly opinion column. 

From sports to politics, food to finance, aviation to engineering, to bitter disputes over simple boundaries themselves, New England’s feuds have peppered the region’s life for centuries. They’ve been raw and rowdy, sometimes high minded and humorous, and in a place renowned for its deep sense of history, often long-running and legendary. There are even some that will undoubtedly outlast the region’s ancient low stonewalls. Ted Reinstein, a native New Englander and local writer, offers us fascinating stories, some known, others not so much, from the history of New England in this fun, accessible book. Bringing to life many of the fights, spats, and arguments that have, in many ways, shaped the area itself, Reinstein demonstrates what it really means to be Wicked Pissed

    Contact: Priya Rathnam   508-841-8531   prathnam@cwmars.org
   

Recently The Norman Rockwell Museum commissioned David Polansky to develop “Music Through The Decades”, a fun-filled hour in which the audience learns how the last hundred-plus years of American and world history have influenced the great American Popular Song Book. Using keyboard, trumpet, and vocals David brings alive the music of George M. Cohan, Irving Berlin, Fats Waller, George Gershwin, Hoagy Carmichael, and a host of others. These are songs inspired by the jolly 90's, the advent of the automobile, World War I, the Roaring 20's, The Great Depression, WWII, Big Band, Atomic Age, Swing Eras, Broadway and the Wild West (OverThere, Sweet Georgia Brown, Brother Can You Spare a Dime,Rosie the Riveter and much more). The show very often ends with a standing ovation. David engages the audience, taking questions, performing requests, and telling anecdotes about famous musicians as well as some about his own life as a musician. David?s Louis Armstrong impersonation is legendary and never fails to thrill everyone. A career musician, David has played with Sandler and Young, Phyllis Diller, Henny Youngman, Ray Bolger, Arthur Fiedler, The Platters, The Coasters....the list goes on and on.

In the first of a series of art demonstrations, Susan Fleishman will demonstrate painting on Yupo, a synthetic paper that is 100% recyclable, waterproof and tree-free. Yupo is a unique and interesting surface to paint on.  It's a plastic product so the paint sits on top and can be moved around on the surface with some interesting results. Sue will use a variety of brushes, scrapers, rollers and other materials to create different textures and effects with watercolor paints. “I love to try new products and see if I can incorporate them into my art. Yupo captivated me as paint can be moved around on the surface to create interesting textures and patterns, “she says.  Sue teaches a painting class at a senior center with experienced and beginning artists. “Teaching provides me the opportunity to help each artist find their own style and for me to share my love of art.” Sue has exhibited with AGS and other community galleries and recently won an award at the Tower Hill exhibit in Boylston.

In this session, Melissa Maglio will demonstrate the little known medium of painting with oil sticks.  Paint sticks don't dry out, are easy to use, easy to clean up and provide the most luscious colors that always remain vibrant. She will talk about "opening the paint," the best tools to make a variety of textures and show methods of mixing colors directly on the work.  Melissa will demonstrate how to get right in to create beautiful color and vivid expression.  Whether you want light and detailed or heavy and thick, paint sticks are as malleable as clay. Melissa is happiest when creating something whether it is with paint, clay, furniture, fabric or words.  But most of all she has come to love the immediacy, yet low stress approach to painting with sticks. Melissa recently won the People’s Choice award at the sprinkler Factory summer show.

This session is about pounding flowers! Chris Anderson finds that pounding flowers gives her a new creative approach to flower art in a way that preserves their beauty in a different medium such as paper and fabric. She learnt the technique from a fellow AGS member but has brought her own creativity in to the mix. “I love the way the colors flow and play together often in an unexpected manner – very much the way of life!” Chris shows her work at many of the AGS public venues and recently demonstrated her technique last summer at the Sprinkler Factory Gallery in Worcester.

Pam Haynes will demonstrate how to interpret the painting of ocean rocks. Have you ever noticed how smooth their surface is? How they reflect the light and the water? This will be a lesson on the basics of painting those beautiful smooth ocean rocks. This simple approach will give beginners and experienced painters a dependable approach on how to include rocks in their watercolor paintings.
Many of Pam’s works have been recognized. She recently showed watercolor paintings of Italy in Worcester sponsored by the New England School of Fine Arts, had a painting accepted into the 2016 Northeast Regional Watermedia Competition at Rhode Island Watercolor Society; and had a painting accepted into the New England Watercolor Society 2016 15th Biennial North American Open Show.
