“Between Falling Leaves is the result of my love for character design, the season of autumn and the magic of Halloween. The mediums I used for my art consist of ink pens and watercolors, which I have been using to paint for several years. Whimsical characters and books, especially fairy tales, inspire me. My hope for this show is for viewers to see my paintings and be able to create their own stories from them. – Angela Hunt

In this presentation, Dr. Palumbo will analyze tales of heroism where fighting females (like cops and spies) battle three forms of male domination—sexism, gender-based violence, and paternalism—that continue to pose a threat for women onscreen and off. Dr. Palumbo will explore the way that these conflicts position the fighting female character as a survivor who is both a vulnerable and empowered, while it positions supporting male characters as enemies and allies, often interchangeably. As a result, the stories project complicated and often contradictory messages about ideals of women’s strength and independence and possibilities for empowering romance. Examples include TV shows like Cagney & Lacey, Prime Suspect, The Closer, and Alias, as well as films like La Femme Nikita, Murder by Numbers, Salt, and The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo.

Please join us for coffee, tea, and bagels as we learn to save history! The October presentation will continue the discussion on preserving ephemera, items such as matchbook covers, greeting cards, theater programs, postcards, cancelled checks, etc. that were meant to be thrown away after one use but actually expand on the history of Moses Lake. New examples from the collection will be shared! In addition, the Collections Curator will give a tour of the Collection Room.
