June 8: Stillwater Library presents Let’s Talk About It, Oklahoma; Civil Rights and Equality

6:30 – 8:30 pm, Stillwater Public Library, 1107 S. Duck St.  Stop by the Library Help Desk to register and pick up your first book.  Each program includes a scholar presentation on the book, small group book discussions, and refreshments.  Call 405-372-3633 x8106 for more information.  Free and open to adults and readers 16 or older.  Read more about the theme and books on the Oklahoma Humanities site.  June 8 book is ‘The Known World” by Edward P. Jones.  Jones’ well researched historical novel weaves together different time sequences and family histories as it follows the story of former slave Henry Townsend in early 19th century Virginia.  Having learned a model for accessing success from the most powerful white man in Manchester County, Townsend works to buy his own plantation and his own slaves in an attempt to distance himself from his unequal past and participate in a local version of the American Dream.  Later, his wife has to manage the farm and move forward, reconciling her own ethics and those reflected in her husbands’ decisions.  This engaging novel shakes up our assumptions about the antebellum world and raises important questions about ambition, power, identity, race, and property—and the consequences that come with the decisions made in regards to them.  Fans of Toni Morrison’s historical novel Beloved might find parallels in Jones’ storytelling style: rich, historical detail; a non-linear structure that weaves the present and past together to test the limits of memory and our choices in a given moment; hints of the supernatural appearing in everyday settings; and strong, complex characters with moral questions to unravel.

Peggy Cook/Jude Tolar Exhibit

721 S. Main St. Hazel Modella Gallery is pleased to present an exhibition of work by Peggy Cook and Jude Tolar.  Peggy Cook began her formal study of art over forty years ago at the University of Kansas. Working primarily in pastel and oils, Peggy Cook depicts her world in vibrant color. She draws her inspiration from a myriad of sources, lively Jazz street performers in New Orleans, to the pristine gardens of Cornwall, England, to the Aspen trees of Colorado. Cook will often begin her work with a question, such as how to make a seemingly endless field of green alive with color or how to brighten a dirty city street. With the endless possibilities that color provides, Cook’s work powerfully transforms the picture plane.  Working within a tradition dating back to the Barbizon School of Realism in painting and the Hudson River School, Jude Tolar works en plein air with the natural conditions and limitations of light and shadow. Working primarily with pastel, Tolar’s pieces are lyrical and representational, celebrating beauty and joy in the natural world. Tolar has studied extensively with Clive Tyler, a signature member of the American Impressionist Society, along with other notable artists such as Stephanie Birdsall, Terri Ford, Debby Kaspari, and Rita Kirkman, among others.  Peggy Cook and Jude Tolar will be presenting an artist talk and demo in the gallery on June 22nd at 6:30pm. Please join us!  Regular hours are: Thur - Fri 5pm-9pm, Saturday 11am-5pm, and Sunday 1pm-5pm.  Private showings are available upon request.
