Slide Talk: Saturday, September 4 • 3:00 pm • Appleton Auditorium
Exhibition: September 4—October 24, 2021 • Quiet Gallery

Please join us on Saturday, September 4 at 3:00 pm, as local artist Matt Brewster discusses his photography with a slide talk in Appleton Auditorium. Brewster is known for his beautiful landscape and interior photography, and in particular his aerial/drone photos. His exhibition, Radiance: Photography by Matt Brewster, will be on display in the library’s Quiet Gallery during the months of September and October.

Brewster grew up in Winterville and is a graduate of the University of Georgia. He started Marigold 84 as a fun photography site in 2015 that focused on highlighting small towns and scenic areas from around Northeast Georgia. The popularity of this site led him to create a start-up business, Marigold Solutions, in May of 2016. He started doing drone photography in 2017, which was really popular with his commercial clients, but even with his increase in business he still makes time to provide photography and video services for his hometown Marigold Festival. You can see more of Matt’s photography HERE.

The exhibition and slide talk are free and open to the public. Facial masks are required in the library.

Imagination Squared: Pathways to Resilience
A Slide Talk by Christina Foard

Athens-Clarke County Library • 2025 Baxter Street • Athens, Georgia • 706 613 3650

Slide Talk: Wednesday, August 18, 2021 7:00 pm • Appleton Auditorium
Art Installation: Second Floor Computer Area Arch

Join us in the Appleton Auditorium on Wednesday, August 18 at 7:00 pm for a slide talk about the library’s recent art installation, Imagination Squared: Pathways to Resilience.

The piece is a social creativity project created and curated by Christina Foard. It offered free wood squares for the Athens community and UGA faculty and students to modify as they considered the meaning of resilience in their life or research. The resulting stories, symbols, and sounds to redefine resilience from 2018-2020 are collected and permanently installed on the Second Floor Computer Area Arch as a gift back to the city of Athens.

Christina Foard received a BFA at the University of Cincinnati and an MFA at the University of Georgia. She spent the first 10 years of her career in non-profit program management and new-media production in Alexandria, VA, and later shifted into arts administration roles at The Cummer Museum of Art and Gardens and running the Arts in Medicine Program at UF Health Jacksonville. Foard’s paintings (cfoard.com) have been represented in galleries around the US since 2010 and are held in several private and public collections nationally and internationally. Foard’s long-term interest in art as a connector and stage for community conversations fueled several social ecology projects over the past 10 years. Foard relocated with her partner and their five children to Athens, GA in 2014 and currently teaches painting at UGA in the Dodd School of Art.

The installation and slide talk are free and open to the public. Face masks are required in the library.

Wednesday, August 11, 2021 • 7:00 pm

It's the last night of summer in 1962 in a small southern California town in pre-Vietnam America, the evening before best friends and recent high school graduates, Curt Henderson (Richard Dreyfuss) and Steve Bolander (Ron Howard), are scheduled to leave town to head to college back east. Curt, who received a lucrative local scholarship, is seen as the promise that their class holds. But Curt is having second thoughts about leaving what Steve basically sees as their dead end town. They, along with their friends Terry (Charles Martin Smith) and John (Paul Le Mat), cruise the streets while a mysterious disc jockey (Wolfman Jack) spins classic rock'n'roll tunes. Steve's high-school sweetheart, a bratty adolescent and a disappearing angel in a Thunderbird provide all the excitement they can handle.

The film has been highly influential and launched the film career of Director George Lucas, as well as actors Harrison Ford, Richard Dreyfuss, Suzanne Somers, Ron Howard, Paul Le Mat, Charles Martin Smith, Cindy Williams, Candy Clark, Mackenzie Phillips, Bo Hopkins, Kathleen Quinlan, Wolfman Jack, and others.

This film is rated PG. The screening is free and open to the public.
