New Jane Austen Exhibit Opens at Gallery Opening Night, Friday March 1, 2013

TCPL features a new Jane Austen Exhibit and Karen Allaben-Confer’s rescheduled Artist’s talk during Gallery Opening Night, 5:00 to 8:00 PM on Friday, March 1.

Ithaca High School Students under the direction of Maryterese Pasqual Bowen present a delightful and informative exhibit celebrating the 200 year anniversary of the publication of "Pride and Prejudice."  Students will be available in costume to discuss the exhibit from 5:00 to 6:00 PM.

The two animal themed exhibits Birds, Beasts and Books:  Animal Illustrations in Literature, curated by Nancy E. Green, and Animalia in Art, curated by Jenny Pope, continue to be available for viewing.

Wildlife artist Karen Allaben-Confer will present “Living With Relics of the Pleistocene:  Adventures of an Artist in Residence for the California Condor Reintroduction Project at Vermilion Cliffs National Monument, Arizona” at 6 p.m. in the BorgWarner Community Room.  This talk is rescheduled from February’s Gallery Night.

Allaben-Confer will discuss her contributions to the Animalia in Art exhibit and share stories from the two years she spent handling, observing and drawing released, captive-bred condors. 

Entrance to the Library after closing on Friday, March 1 is through the BorgWarner Community Room Door, behind the bus shelter on Green Street.

The exhibit Animalia in Art is made possible by a grant from the Community Arts Partnership of Tompkins County.
