Susan Tango’s work is an interpretation of specific visual memories. She keeps a visual scrapbook of ideas that she draws from for inspiration. Sometimes these images are her own photos or scenes just remembered. Natural settings, texture and light are used to create particular moods that are recalled with the images. The bulk of her printmaking skills came from courses and workshops with Dan Weldon and Jonathan Fabricant. This included intaglio printing (drypoint, engraving, solarprints, etching, soft ground, embossing) and relief printing (woodcuts, linocuts, collage) as well as monoprints. This training included a 10-day seminar and exhibition in Mykonos, Greece with Dan and the Japanese printmaker Takiji Kubo. Syosset Public Library, Ongoing.

Work off your holiday feast while doing some good for the environment. Help clear the trails at Underhill Preserve in Jericho in time for the Christmas Bird Count in December (this is the most productive count area and the trails have grown in terribly). Tools, gloves and snacks (no Thanksgiving leftovers…promise!) will be provided for the volunteers. This is a great chance to explore this preserve which is closed to the public. Due to the sensitive location, the group will meet in front of the Starbucks in the Whole Foods shopping center in Jericho on Route 107 then carpool to the preserve. Registration is an absolute must: 516-695-0783. 10 a.m.
