Moravia Book Club
"When you take a flower in your hand and really look at it, it's your world for the moment. I want to give that world to someone else." – Georgia O'Keeffe You may already know her work, but you may not know her. In April, the Moravia Book Club gets to know Georgia O’Keeffe. Born in Wisconsin in 1887, she studied art in Chicago, taught school in Texas, and came onto the art scene in New York City in 1916. In a time when women only dabbled at drawing and painting, O’Keeffe painted not only what she saw, but what she felt. From her first gallery show with Alfred Stieglitz, the man who became her mentor, husband and friend, she continued to create art throughout her long life. Her most famous subjects were her detailed and scandalous flowers, when she lived in New York City the brand new skyscrapers, and later in her life, the skulls and crosses she saw and collected near her home in New Mexico. A bit of a loner, she bucked the societal norms of the time to become not only a great female artist, but one of the great American artists of the 20th century whose work continues to be shown around the world. The Moravia Book Club will be discussing “Portrait of an Artist: A Biography of Georgia O’Keeffe” by Laurie Lisle and other biographical and autobiographical works concerning Georgia O’Keeffe on Sunday, April 27th, at 7 PM at the Locke Town Hall. Everyone is welcome even if you haven’t read the book. We just love to talk about books and we’d love to have you join us! See you there!! Questions? Contact Marilyn Westlake (c) 428-1221 or Bonnie Thomas (H) 497-0766, or check us out on Facebook.

An Afternoon with Grace Scarpino-Stoutenburg, Professional Harpist
Please join us Sunday, April 27 from 2pm to 4pm at the Willard Chapel, 17 Nelson Street in Auburn, NY 13021 for an afternoon of lovely music played in a lovely Tiffany-designed setting! As you listen to the harp’s peaceful and contemplative sounds, you also will learn a little about the harp itself. Ms. Scarpino-Stoutenburg’s presentation will include works from harp masters such as Tournier, Grandjany, Thomas, Salzedo, and Hasselmans. Intermingled with these works, she will discuss practical examples of the instrument’s construction and its strengths and limitations, focusing specifically on how the harp differs from its stringed cousin, the piano. She will trace the history of the harp from the ancient through the modern age, discussing specific aspects of the evolution of performance style and practice. Each work performed will correlate directly with the topics discussed and will highlight the various and unique aspects of the harp’s performance capabilities. Tickets for this concert are $10 at the door. Proceeds benefit the Willard Chapel. The chapel’s main entrance is on the south-facing side of the building, reached via Nelson Street. A fully accessible entrance is located off Seymour Street on the building’s north side. Please call the chapel at (315) 252-0339 for more information.
