Exhibit at the Bedford Free Public Library’s Gallery Features ‘Inuit Influences’ ~ Work by Lynne Klemmer

Submitted by the Art Steering Committee of the Bedford Free Public Library

Inuit Influences, work by Lynne Klemmer, will be on display in the Atrium Gallery at the Bedford Free Public Library through Wednesday, September 13.

Inuit (aka Eskimo) art has a spiritual, organic and intrinsically animalistic manner that has resonated with me since making art in college. I love how it captures a childlike quality, the simplicity of form and its essence of the spirit of all things, called inua. Their belief in the liminality between humans and animals has kindled a powerful abundance of imagery in the forms of animals, shamans and the act of transformation.

Bedford Kids Get Taste of Colonial Life

Compiled by The Bedford Citizen

The Job Lane House was the setting recently for 11 Bedford youngsters to live, work, and play for a week as Colonial kids would have done. Under the guidance of Betsey Anderson, Judy Barber, Don Corey, Ralph Hammond, Sharon McDonald, and Lee Yates, with assistance from Jeff Carter, Peter Corey, Roy and Shirley Kring, and John Linz the children did every task from churning butter to spinning wool and raking hay. In between their chores, they learned how colonial kids had fun by mastering the technique of walking on stilts, kite flying, and hoop rolling.

As you soak up the summer sun and savor the season’s slower pace, think about this: September is only a couple of calendar flips away. That means Bedford will soon be into the fun, food, and festivities of Bedford Day, September 23 this year.
