JP Molenaar’s Art Show: CANCELLED | 09/10/2020-24/11/2020 | All Day

JP Molenaar's Art Show: CANCELLED

Stop by the library from October 9th to November 24th during opening hours to see JP Molenaar’s Art Show. The exhibition is free and open to the public! On Friday October 9th, meet the artist between 4 pm and 6 pm!

JP Molenaar is a painter and the owner of the gallery Trois Murs in Savennières. Through his art, he tangoes with the duality of life with which he colors his own life. He believes that one can choose to do, or not. To take pleasure in things others may dismiss as whimsy. He also feels that the state of mind of individuals impacts their sense of reality. In his paintings, he prefers to portray those who attempt to hide their secrets but who, ultimately, reveal them with a simple gesture, a lowering of the eyes for example. He immortalizes such moments of revelation with his paintbrush. In each piece of art he creates, he attempts to provoke emotions with splashes of color, carefully chosen, or at times, simply lustily applied.

Book Club reads “The Only Story”: Pending decision whether to cancel or to organize by Zoom | 20/11/2020 | 2:40 pm-4:10 pm

Book Club reads "The Only Story": Pending decision whether to cancel or to organize by Zoom

The November read for the book club is “The Only Story” by Julian Barnes.

Would you rather love more, and suffer the most; or love less, and suffer the least? That is the only real question. First love has lifelong consequences, but Paul doesn’t know anything about that at nineteen. At nineteen, he’s proud of the fact his relationship flies in the face of social convention. As he grows older, the demands placed on Paul by love become far greater than he could possibly have foreseen. Tender and wise, The Only Story is a deeply moving novel by one of Britain’s greatest mappers of the human heart.
