Kelly Hourigan, November Artist

Kelly is drawn toward vivid colors and printing on different mediums to draw out the vibrancy. Whether it is photographing the nostalgia of an amusement park, capturing the beauty of flowers in bloom or discovering interesting piles of brightly colored buckets at an antique show, she finds color and light in ordinary things we all take for granted.

All of Kelly’s pieces are available for sale and can be ordered in other sizes if needed.

Kelly’s exhibit will be on display the month of November.

October Artist Jen Moltoni

Jen Moltoni is a collage/mixed media artist and painter, she draws inspiration from her numerous trips to beaches throughout New England.  Her process is simple — she paints with acrylics, gouache and watercolor on various weights and types of paper — finding joy in the swirling of colors.  Then, she cuts everything she’s painted up, stares at a blank canvas, and decide what the shapes she’s cut will become.  She feels that the empty canvas space is as important as the colored pieces she eventually place unto it.  What results are compositions that are multi-colored and textured, with a touch of whimsy, that feature scenes of nature and the ocean and the spaces in between.
Jen’s exhibit will be on display the month of October.

Local Author Talk

Join us at the Malden Public Library on Tuesday, September 24 from 7–8 pm for a talk with Joseph Bebo, author of Alex A Lesson in Courage.  This is a true story about a Malden boy with special needs named Alex, as told by his parents, his teachers, coaches, friends, neighbors, a high school principal, and the mayor of a city. It demonstrates how inclusion can change not only the life of someone with special needs, but the lives of everyone involved. It’s a story about courage, acceptance, and overcoming adversity. Alex’s story is a story of hope, of how love turned a seeming tragedy into a wondrous joy.

This event is free and open to the public. Books will be available for purchase.
