East Kingston Library News

EAST KINGSTON —Here at the East Kingston Public Library we have a variety of passes to local museums available for our patrons to borrow. This spring there are a number of special shows you will not want to miss. Take the opportunity to reserve a pass and enjoy a reduced entrance fee.

The Museum of Fine Arts in Boston offers the Pilgrim/Roy Collection at the Gund Gallery through July 27. Gerald Roy, a nationally known quilt collector, shares highlights from his collection of turn of the 20th century quilts. These geometric designs and bold color combinations pre date the work of 20th century abstract artists but share an innate understanding of color theory and design that we still celebrate today.

The Currier Museum in Manchester features the work of Romare Beardon in ‘A Black Odyssey’ through August 17. The work of this painter and musician of the Harlem Renaissance is on loan through the Smithsonian. You can sample the show by loading the app: Romare Beardon: A Black Odyssey on your IPhone or IPad. What a great way to add a new level of appreciation to your museum visit.

Visit the seaside in Salem, Massachusetts literally and figuratively. The Peabody Essex Museum will be showing Turner and the Sea from May 31st through September 1st. Turners iconic, emotionally charged seascapes influenced artists like Frederic Church, John Singer Sargent and James Whistler. The PME also features family art making workshops with stories and art activities like the study of the work of early fossil finder, Mary Anning.
