October 6, 2017 - November 6, 2017 @ Downtown Library
The Boca Raton Public Library is pleased to exhibit “Fragments into Form: Works from 2005–2016,” by collage artist Nicole Washburn. Visitors to the Downtown Library will view a variety of paper collages that blend colors and images to portray elements from nature and the supernatural.
Washburn lived in the mountain forests of central Argentina for 22 years. Life in the wilderness combined with world travel and a degree in Cultural Anthropology have given her a unique perspective on the issues facing humanity today. She has been strongly influenced by her exploration of shamanic spirituality in a Western context and uses mythological images to portray the supernatural world. Her "soulful eye-candy," as she calls it, is intended to be a reminder of the sacred presence in everyday life.
“Fragments into Form” will run from October 6–November 6, 2017, at the Downtown Library, an Art in Public Places venue, at 400 NW 2nd Avenue.
October 13, 2017, 6:30 PM - 8:00 PM @ Downtown Library
The Boca Raton Public Library is celebrating Oktoberfest and the booming craft beer industry in Florida with a talk by author Mark DeNote and a beer tasting. Mark DeNote is a wandering beer writer who keeps a home in Florida and an eye on the road in search of fresh, local beer. Mark is a teacher at heart, and enjoys talking about beer and beer history almost as much as tasting beer. Mark is the author of "The Great Florida Craft Beer Guide" and "Tampa Bay Beer: A Heady History." He also edits, reports, interviews and writes the story behind craft beer at FloridaBeerNews.com. A selection of Florida craft beers will be available to taste. This event is sponsored by the Friends of the Library, and a suggested $5 donation to the Friends is appreciated. Enrollment is required through the calendar at bocalibrary.org. Must be age 21 or older to attend.
