“Fragments of What Once Was” by John Cropley
In the Gallery, thru October 22,
Reception Friday, September 16, 5 -7 pm
Modern-day ruins dot the landscape around us, some of them hidden and some in plain sight. I seek out these places and try to capture a sense of what they are now and what they once were, what they once meant. Some reflect only that fading past but others teem with new life as nature reclaims them.—John Cropley

The Flapper Story
Film Showing Thursday, Sept. 8th at 7 pm
with Discussion by Gerald Zahavi & Margaret Bartley
The Flapper Story offers a lively mixture of contemporary interviews and archival film footage in a thoughtful examination of the social phenomenon of the `flapper,’ the provocative `New Woman’ of America’s Roaring ’20s.
It traces the historical developments which gave shape to the flapper ideal, explores the ways in which the flapper rebelled against prevailing social mores, and also considers the contradictions and limitations which underlay the flapper’s newly won independence. The film won several awards, including: Documentary Merit Award, Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences; Silver Plaque, Chicago Film Festival; Silver Award, Philadelphia Film Festival; CINE Golden Eagle Award. Produced, written, and directed by Lauren Lazin, 1985, 30 mins.
The film will be accompanied by a short discussion and presentation by Gerald Zahavi and Margaret Bartley.
Doors open at 6:30 pm. Covid-19 vaccination is strongly recommended and masks are encouraged. Masks will be available. Seating is limited and on a first-come, first-serve basis.
