      Stratford Library Exhibits “Harper’s Ladies”

      Original Craft from Stratford Actor Is October Art Display

           

      "The Harper’s Ladies and Friends” is the October art exhibit at the Stratford Library. Original papier toile creations from professional actor Ted van Griethuysen of Stratford will be on display throughout the month. The exhibit is free and open to the public.

           Ted van Griethuysen’s unique hobby began when he came into possession of dozens of Harper’s Bazaar magazines. The gorgeous covers seemed suitable for framing but the artist –inspired by the French craft of papier toile – instead made copies, colored the individual figures, attached them to a foam core board and created a 3D shadow box effect which was enhanced by the addition of beads, flowers, feathers and ribbons in the style of the 1890s. Van Griethuysen has been a professional actor for years working primarily, since 1987, with the Shakespeare Theatre Company in Washington, D.C. where he was seen in “The Winter’s Tale”, “Much Ado About Nothing” and “The Tempest” among many others. He is the recipient of six Helen Hayes Awards, the Will Award and the New York Drama Critics Circle Award. This is his first exhibit for the Stratford Library.

           "The Harper’s Ladies and Friends” will be on exhibit in the Main Lobby of the Stratford Library, 2203 Main Street in Stratford through October 31. For further information, call the Library at 203.385.4162 or visit: www.stratfordlibrary.org.

      “PUMP IT UP!” AUTHOR AT STRATFORD LIBRARY

      Petreycik To Speak about Healthy Hearts on October 26

           The Stratford Library, 2203 Main Street in Stratford, will host author Joe Petreycik for a health-related “Meet-the-Author” program on Sunday, October 26 at 2 pm. The author will discuss his new book, “Pump It Up! Exercising Your Heart to Health”. The program is free and open to the public.

           With dozens of photographs illustrating the exercises that Petreycik walks readers through, his book is the result of six years of research and writing as well as his on-the-job expertise. Petreycik believes that people need to understand what cardiovascular disease is, what are their particular risk factors and how they can tackle these risks through healthy lifestyle modifications, including diet, stress reduction, exercise and weight maintenance.

           The author is a certified clinical exercise physiologist and registered nurse. He divides his time between a hospital-based cardiac rehab facility and a surgical intensive care unit in a Southwestern Connecticut hospital. He is certified as a Clinical Exercise Specialist by the American College of Sports Medicine and is a graduate of Sacred Hearth University. At the Library program Petreycik’s talk will be followed by a question/answer session and book signing. Autographed copies of “Pump It Up” will be available for purchase.

           “Meet-the-Author: Joe Petreycik” will be held in the Lovell Room of the Stratford Library on Sunday, October 26 at 2 pm. For further information, call 203.385.4162 or visit: www.stratfordlibrary.org.
