  • Maureen O’Connor: Just Ducky Exhibit

    May 4, 2018 - June 30, 2018 @ 
    Jamaica Plain Branch BPL Library, 30 South St, Jamaica Plain, MA 02130, USA

    Maureen O’Connor: Just Ducky at the Jamaica Plain Branch Library

    The Friends of the Jamaica Plain Branch of the Boston Public Library in partnership with Uforge are pleased to announce a new exhibition as part of their rotating art program. After soliciting proposals from a range of local artists, a selection committee comprised of community members and BPL staff have chosen six exceptional artists to fill its gallery space over the course of 2018. During the months of May and June, a series of charming works by Boston-based painter Maureen O’Connor will be exhibited.

    A graduate of the Massachusetts College of Art, O’Connor has been exhibiting in Boston since the early 1980s, and her work held in numerous public and private collections, including the Federal Reserve Bank of Boston, Goodwin and Proctor, and Fidelity Investments. She is known for her playful still lifes of so-called tchotchke’s -- miscellaneous objects collected around the home -- and candy, often paired with floral or polka dot wallpaper. Lively and bright, her paintings are tinged with nostalgia, recalling 1970s interiors with their fun patterns and decidedly analog subjects. Her works on view in Just Ducky focus on her favorite subject: a pair of ceramic ducks given to her by her former roommate’s mother. These small inanimate knick knacks find new life under O’Connor’s brush, turning their seemingly quizzical expressions on gumball machines, rubber ducky toys, flowers, and each other. Each work allows the artist the opportunity to explore interactions of light and shadow, color and pattern, and a variety of surfaces.

    Maureen O’Connor: Just Ducky is on view from May 4 through June 30, 2018, with a public reception to be held on Thursday, May 10, 5:30-7:30 PM. The library is open Monday-Wednesday 10-6, Thursday 12-8, and Friday-Saturday 9-5 (closed Sundays). The exhibition space is located on the lower level.

    This exhibition is proudly sponsored by Optical Designs, Inc., a family-owned and operated business located in the heart of Jamaica Plain.

  • Pineapple Project

    June 20, 2018 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm
    Jamaica Plain Branch BPL Library, 30 South St, Jamaica Plain, MA 02130, USA

    Please join us for the Pineapple Project, an original play about gender, creativity, and each child’s freedom to be who they are. The Pineapple Project was born during a moment of play between actor Mal Malme and her niece in which her niece said “Boys Can’t Be Princesses!” As a gender non-conforming person and theater artist, Mal couldn’t ignore this statement. This led Mal and colleagues Becca A. Lewis and Renee Farster-Degenhardt to create a theatre piece for children ages 3-8 to broaden the gender conversation and validate each child’s identity.

Just like last time (when we raised nearly $7,000 for the ACLU!), this event is completely free and open to everyone. We will accept donations, with every single penny going to support the Massachusetts Immigrant and Refugee Advocacy Coalition, miracoalition.org.

    We will gather at 10:00 for coffee, community, and brief remarks from MIRA representatives before setting out on a unified lap around the pond. Runners, walkers, and just plain hang-outers are invited to join us. We look forward to seeing you there!

  • Maureen O’Connor: Just Ducky Exhibit

    May 4, 2018 - June 30, 2018 @ 
    Jamaica Plain Branch BPL Library, 30 South St, Jamaica Plain, MA 02130, USA

    Maureen O’Connor: Just Ducky at the Jamaica Plain Branch Library

    The Friends of the Jamaica Plain Branch of the Boston Public Library in partnership with Uforge are pleased to announce a new exhibition as part of their rotating art program. After soliciting proposals from a range of local artists, a selection committee comprised of community members and BPL staff have chosen six exceptional artists to fill its gallery space over the course of 2018. During the months of May and June, a series of charming works by Boston-based painter Maureen O’Connor will be exhibited.

    A graduate of the Massachusetts College of Art, O’Connor has been exhibiting in Boston since the early 1980s, and her work held in numerous public and private collections, including the Federal Reserve Bank of Boston, Goodwin and Proctor, and Fidelity Investments. She is known for her playful still lifes of so-called tchotchke’s -- miscellaneous objects collected around the home -- and candy, often paired with floral or polka dot wallpaper. Lively and bright, her paintings are tinged with nostalgia, recalling 1970s interiors with their fun patterns and decidedly analog subjects. Her works on view in Just Ducky focus on her favorite subject: a pair of ceramic ducks given to her by her former roommate’s mother. These small inanimate knick knacks find new life under O’Connor’s brush, turning their seemingly quizzical expressions on gumball machines, rubber ducky toys, flowers, and each other. Each work allows the artist the opportunity to explore interactions of light and shadow, color and pattern, and a variety of surfaces.

    Maureen O’Connor: Just Ducky is on view from May 4 through June 30, 2018, with a public reception to be held on Thursday, May 10, 5:30-7:30 PM. The library is open Monday-Wednesday 10-6, Thursday 12-8, and Friday-Saturday 9-5 (closed Sundays). The exhibition space is located on the lower level.

    This exhibition is proudly sponsored by Optical Designs, Inc., a family-owned and operated business located in the heart of Jamaica Plain.

    How to identify and articulate your personal value
    How to develop an arsenal of persuasive responses and other strategies to use when negotiating
    How to conduct objective market research to benchmark a target salary and benefits
    About the wage gap, including its long-term consequences
    You will also have an opportunity to practice your negotiation.

    AAUW Work Smart in Boston is an initiative of AAUW and the Mayor's Office of Women's Advancement to train half the working women of Boston to negotiate their salary and benefits packages over five years.
