First Friday Art Walk at the Library with Suzette Ruys

"Persistent Women"

Come join us for the library's March Art Walk reception featuring paintings by Suzette Ruys.  The exhibit "Persistent Women" can be viewed in the main library conference room during the month of March.

"These women persistently sought respect, justice, equal rights, education and recognition. They suffered violence, opposition, ridicule and belittlement for themselves and for their loved ones. They were challenged, warned and given explanations and triumphed in the end.  We might not be senators, first ladies or anthropologists, but we too can persist and triumph in the end."

"… and the grateful words and smile which rewarded me for binding up a wound or giving a cooling drink was a pleasure worth risking life for at any time.”

"You cannot make yourself feel something you do not feel, but you can make yourself do right in spite of your feelings."

"When an individual is protesting society’s refusal to acknowledge his dignity as a human being, his very act of protest confers dignity on him."
