Stitch-In at Noon on Wednesdays!

Join us for a Stitch-In! A mindful session of knitting, crochet, counted cross stitch, quilting, or other handwork will take place in the library on Wednesdays at noon by the main entrance. 
 
Stitching and handwork is known to lower blood pressure and create a state of mindfulness by requiring one to be very present. According to Dr Marlies Alvarenga, director of the Monash Clinical Psychology Centre at Monash University, embroidery is known as logic relaxation. Forming and following patterns requires a certain logic to the practice. “Knitting allows for the passive release of stray thoughts.” Come to the library to improve your focus, clear your mind, and increase your creativity.
 
Bring your own personal project or use one of ours. All skill levels are welcome. Join us for as long as you are able between Noon and 1pm. 
 
All are welcome to this free event sponsored by the Library and the Faculty Center.

The Conversation by Catherine Albano!

ArtStudent

Exciting and new to the library is a mixed media art piece created within the Bucks Community by Catherine Albano. Please view The Conversation on the third floor of the library, outside of L310.

The Conversation is a collaborative public art experiment that examines the relationships forged at Bucks county Community College, as well as the internal dialogue of the individual. The artist gathered anonymous thoughts and feelings from the campus community, including students, faculty and staff. These thoughts were exchanged for small drawings, creating a unique connection between artist and onlooker. Afterwards, the artist, in the presence of the campus community, compiled the responses verbatim onto strips of canvas. Each strip was woven onto stretcher frame to create the final net seen here. This piece functions as a map of the campus psyche, and challenges the separation of artist and onlooker, creator and creation.”
