“Art for a Cause” poster exhibit by Stephen Lewis
“Art that wears its politics on its sleeve,” is a good way to describe the new poster exhibit at the Rowley Public Library. Posters on display are from multiple countries, and cover multiple issues, like the Spanish Civil War, migration, anti-Fascism, Angolan independence, censorship and other subjects. In addition to the subject matter, viewers are treated to art styles from many artists, and many countries. Stephen Lewis, the exhibitor, describes the exhibit as “a bit of art, a bit of message and a bit of history.” Around 30 posters from his 7800-piece collection will be on display from August 2 through August 28.
This Month in the Display Case
First published in 1993 by Wizards of the Coast, Magic The Gathering was the first trading card game created and it continues to thrive to this very day with millions of players all over the world. Magic can be played by two or more players in various formats and is best suited to players age 5 and up. We will be hosting an event on Saturday, August 18, 12-3pm. Organizers will teach newcomers the ins and outs of getting started in the world of Magic The Gathering. They will also challenge more experienced players to help build their skill set and endurance. Come to learn, play, watch or trade. For more information, click here.
