In the Gallery: Paul Madalinski, “Some of this, some of that”
May 4 – Jun 30 all-day
In the Gallery: Paul Madalinski, "Some of this, some of that"

Paul Madalinski will be showing a selection of his work dating from the mid 1970s to the present. Included will be paintings, drawings, video, prints and sculpture. Paul Madalinski is a Chicago-born artist who transplanted his urban roots to rural Brookline, Vermont in 2009.  A graduate of the School of the Art Institute of Chicago (MFA, 1974), he is an NEA/Arts Midwest grant recipient and his work is owned by both public institutions and private collectors.  His paintings and drawings explore the transformation of ordinary places and objects to sometimes enigmatic visions that are no longer entirely familiar.  His work is inspired by the world outside his door, wherever that is, which is then transformed by his inner vision.  Paul primarily works with oil paints and with water-based media such as gouache on paper.  He also uses pastels, charcoal, graphite and sometimes printmaking techniques to achieve his vision. There will be a reception with the artist on Saturday, June 5th from 1:00 to 3:00 PM

Community Shredding Event to benefit libraries
May 15 @ 9:00 am – 12:00 pm
Community Shredding Event to benefit libraries
On Saturday, May 15th, the Moore Free Library and Townshend Public Library will co-host a community shredding event from 9:00 AM to Noon. People can bring old paper documents to be safely shredded by a mobile SecurShred truck. It’s okay to have paper clips and staples in the documents. The shredding will happen on the horseshoe lawn of the Windham County Sheriff’s Office on Jail Street in Newfane Village. People can bring up to five banker’s boxes (or equivalent trash bags) at a time. Those who have more than that are asked to go back to the end of the line (if there is a line). The event is a fundraiser for the two libraries and a donation of $10 per banker’s box of papers is suggested. The libraries can accept donations in cash or check, but not credit cards.
A representative from the Windham Solid Waste Management District in Brattleboro will be on hand with an informational table and demonstration about composting and will detail what people can compost in their backyards and what they can compost at the dump in Brattleboro. For more information about the event, please contact the Moore Free Library at 365-7948 or the Townshend Public Library at 365-4039.
