Anne Wood is the adult services librarian at the Madison Public Library. With a background in English and Art History, she has always been creative and had a passion for the arts.  The new building project for the Madison Public Library presented a unique opportunity when Anne was asked to spearhead the maker space, a first for the Huntsville-Madison County Public Library system.

Using Photography to Encourage an Active Lifestyle

Gregg Gelmis has had a love of photography since high school. Throughout college, he shot for the University of Houston yearbook and a local newspaper.  When he and Karen moved to Huntsville in 2009, he had an opportunity to combine two of his passions, photography and running, starting up the social running group, We Run Huntsville.

(Un)Conventional Wisdom – Going Against the Grain

@ VOL 5 ON MAR 29, 2018

While researching 18th century mechanical tables by J. F. Oeben [pronounced O-Ben], J. Leko has been nearly kicked-out of such notable museums as the National Gallery of Art (Washington, D.C.), the Metropolitan Museum of Art (New York), Cognacq-Jay, Musée de Nissim de Camondo, and the Louvre (Paris), Rijksmuseum (Amsterdam), and the Victoria and Albert Museum (London). Actually, the Louvre did turn him away, come to think of it…

He occasionally teaches others and accepts commissions to build things for people that require far too much time!

Closer In

@ VOL 5 ON MAR 29, 2018

A photograph lends itself to many interpretations. Suezy Proctor likes to get “closer in” to her subjects, then records her first impressions, which sometimes are expressed by a quote from a poem, a song, commercial, television show, artist, someone or something. Ordinary things become extraordinary when your focus is closer in.
