Melissa Maravell
& Richard Podlesney
Photography and Artwork in
the Gallery June 1st - 29th
Artist’s Reception:
Wednesday, June 3rd,
7:00-8:30 PM
Husband and wife photographers from Greenlawn, NY, will
be exhibiting their photographs
and artwork in the Library Gallery
and showcase this month. The
locations of the subjects will range from Namibia, Zimbabwe,
Malawi and other African countries, to here at home.
Richard has built his love of photography into a second
career and is seldom seen without a camera. Melissa is a
fine graphic artist with a degree in design. They often will
find themselves taking the same shot, however, the results
are often quite different. They don’t give their images titles,
implying the capture of essence, nature or other hyperbole.
They simply take images and leave it to the viewer to decide.
Please join them in the Gallery for an opening reception on
Wednesday, June 3rd at 7:00 PM.
Read like a super hero! Escape the Ordinary and try
something new this summer. Whether it be a new genre, a
new format, a new author or a new interest - the library has
something for everyone. All Harborfields Public Library cardholders (age 18 and over) are invited to join the 2015 Adult
Summer Reading Club. You can read or listen to any book
of your choice and earn prizes and raffle tickets and take a
chance on ten spectacular raffles. Sign up at the Reference
Desk beginning Monday, June 22nd, and begin your summer
of “super” reading.
