On Thursday, December 27 and Friday, December 28, Patten Free Library in Bath will screen the blockbuster film “The Hunger Games.” Show time for both days is 1:30pm in the library’s community room. This is a free event, open to the public; refreshments will be provided. Based on the bestselling novel by Suzanne Collins, the film stars Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, Woody Harrelson, Donald Sutherland, and Elizabeth Banks. It is rated PG-13 and has a run time of 142 minutes.
In a dystopian future, the totalitarian nation of Panem is divided between 12 districts and the Capitol. Each year two young representatives from each district are selected by lottery to participate in The Hunger Games. Part entertainment, part brutal retribution for a past rebellion, the televised games are broadcast throughout Panem. The 24 participants are forced to eliminate their competitors while the citizens of Panem are required to watch. When 16-year-old Katniss’s young sister, Prim, is selected as District 12’s female representative, Katniss volunteers to take her place. She and her male counterpart Peeta, are pitted against bigger, stronger representatives, some of whom have trained for this their whole lives. Written by Suzanne Collins
“Black, White, Gray” at River Arts
“My theme is color and light, and anything can be a foil for that. I can’t say I have a technique but rather a process, that is, I follow my creative heart into different painting adventures. I paint in series. An idea emerges and it begs me to try it on in a number of variations. I’ve always said, ‘repetition could be the death of me’ hence the variety of what I paint.”
The primary reason I paint is to be able to play around with creating interesting color palettes using dramatic light and shapes as the foil for the color. I want my paintings to be an interplay between magic and reality accentuating a moment in time that traces the underlying character of the place I am in.
Stop by Summer Island Studio to view Abbie’s colorful work. The show will be up until January 31, 2013.
