Art Exhibit
Falls Village, CT: David M. Hunt Library: Emily Rutgers Fuller: Landscape Ins and Outs. The David M. Hunt Library in Falls Village will have a reception with refreshments for Amenia-based artist Emily Rutgers Fuller’s exhibition Landscapes Ins and Outs on Saturday, January 26 from 4 to 6PM.  The exhibit includes ten to twelve new landscapes utilizing the artist’s distinctive collage painting technique and large bold-colored sewn paper abstracts.  A salon demonstration of the artist’s collage technique will take place on Sunday, February 3 at 1PM.  Both events are free and open to the public.  The exhibition will be on display through March 2, 2019 during Library operating hours.    For more information call the library at 860-824-7424 or visit huntlibrary.org.  The artist’s work can be seen at emilyfullerart.com. Originally preferring abstraction, but also painting realistically, Emily Rutgers Fuller has been recently drawn to teasing out the abstract elements that can be found within landscape views, rendering them through a collage technique that combines naturalistic landscape painting with textured and sewn acrylic paint, photography, mixed media of oil stick, glue, pencil, and ball point pen on paper.  She finds her subject matter in New York State’s Harlem River Valley in northeast Dutchess and lower Columbia Counties and uses sculpture and wood cutting tools for the marks she finds in landscape like tree branches, animal tracks, garden rows, and building roof angles.  Landscapes Ins and Outs presents a timeline of Fuller's career beginning with large abstract constructions of acrylic painted, textured, and sewn layered paper and the more recent hybrid collages. Ms. Fuller will present a salon demonstration of her art techniques at the Library on Sunday, February 3 at 1PM. 860-824-7424  www.huntlibrary.org

Book signing
Salisbury, CT: White Hart Inn: JACK KELLY - THE EDGE OF ANARCHY: The Railroad Barons, the Gilded Age, and the Greatest Labor Uprising in America. The Edge of Anarchy tells the dramatic story of the explosive 1894 clash of industry, labor, and government that shook the nation and marked a turning point for America. Many of the themes could be taken from today’s headlines―upheaval in America’s industrial heartland, wage stagnation, breakneck technological change, and festering conflict over race, immigration, and inequality. The Edge of Anarchy offers a vivid account of the greatest uprising of working people in American history. 6 pm.  Kathryn.Hough@stmartins.com
