Cazenovia All are invited to attend three exciting events that wrap up the May program schedule at the Cazenovia Public Library.
On Wednesday, May 28 at 7 p.m., the always insightful Dr. Paul D’Ambrosio, Vice-President and Chief Curator at the Fenimore Art Museum, returns to present “Winslow Homer: The Nature and Rhythm of Life.”
Homer (1836-1910) is regarded by many as the greatest American painter of the 19th century. He had a consistent reputation and was widely celebrated throughout his life. He is most known for the works created late in his career of the New England coast focusing on timeless American themes of man versus nature and man’s place in the natural world. These works are considered some of his most famous, and many are showcased in the Fenimore Art Museum exhibition from June 6 to August 24. (fenimoreartmuseum.org)
Sponsored by the Friends of the Cazenovia Public Library, Dr. D’Ambrosio’s presentation is free and open to the public.
On Thursday, May 29 at 7 p.m., the Mohawk Valley Community Action Agency also makes a return visit to conduct a “Save Energy, Save Dollars” workshop. Reducing energy bills and learning low-cost, no-cost energy conservation methods is the focus of the workshop. Each participating household will also receive Energy-Saving light bulbs.
With funding from NYSERDA, this workshop is free and open to the public, but advance registration is required. Please call the Library at 655-9322 to reserve a spot.
The May events wrap up on Friday, May 30 at 7 p.m. with Cazenovia resident David Robertson, singer and songwriter, performing for music lovers of all ages. His song set consists of originals as well as selections by Neil Young, John Prime, Bob Dylan, Cat Stevens, and others.
Robertson has played at many of the local coffee houses, including Common Grounds in Cazenovia, Freedom of Espresso, Café 407, Creekside Café, and the NY State Fair in 2011 and 2012. He and his partner Jan Fletcher are also regulars at the Thursday night open microphone at Kellish Hill Farm’s Music Barn in Manlius and at the Tipp Hill Café on Monday Nights.
Also sponsored by the Friends, Robertson’s performance is free and open to the public. For more information on these or other events at the Cazenovia Public Library, call 655-9322 or visit cazenoviapubliclibrary.org.
