      Library Features Abstract Exhibition

      Stratford Artist Benjamin Casiano Highlighted through June

           "From Artist to Designer & Back Again” is the May/June art exhibit at the Stratford Library. Original works by Stratford artist Benjamin Casiano, who is making his third appearance at the library, will continue through June 2016. The exhibit is free and open to the public.
           Benjamin Casiano is an accomplished graphic designer and art director who fell victim to the great recession in 2009. He began painting again just to fill the time while continuing his job search. He established a body of work and began submitting to galleries near and far. This experience had a profound effect on where his prolific work is today. For the past several years he has developed his own style and technique, a form of expressionism, cubism & fauvism. Today his art is seen in a number of galleries as well as corporate and private collectors throughout the US. Casiano has used some of his art to raise money for several charities and fundraisers. He is a BFA graduate from Pratt Institute and has exhibited previously at The Arte Gallery in New Haven and The Mayor’s Gallery in Stamford.
           "From Artist to Designer & Back Again” will be on display in the Main Lobby of the Stratford Library, 2203 Main Street in Stratford through June 30. For further information, call the Library at 203.385.4162 or visit: www.stratfordlibrary.org.

      Poetry Readings at Stratford Library May 1

      “Not Yet Dead Poets Society” Members to Read Original Works

                  The Stratford Library has rescheduled its “Not Yet Dead Poets Society” for a special program of original writings, to Sunday, May 1 at 3 pm.  The program, originally slated in April, is free and open to the public.

                  The senior members of the “Not Yet Dead Poets Society” are all residents of The Watermark at 3030 Park in Bridgeport. The group began in December 2013 when several former journalists living at the Watermark found each other. Seeking a teacher/mentor for a writers’ workshop, they contacted Dr. Regina Krummel, a retired professor who had taught creative writing at Queens College, City University of New York. The group of women, all with professional writing backgrounds and publishing credits, are: Gloria Sugarman, Daphne Opdyke, Carol Gursky, Liz Barzda and Irene Backalenick. For the Library program the women will share their original poetry, essays and short stories.

                  The “Not Yet Dead Poets Society” will be held from 3-4 pm in the Lovell Room of the Stratford Library on May 1.  No reservations necessary.  Doors open at 2:30 pm for general seating. 

                  For further information, call the Library’s Public Relations and Programming Office at 203.385.4162 or visit: www.stratfordlibrary.org.
