Learn pumpkin carving at the Stratford Library

Joe Pedoto
The Stratford Library will offer “Pumpkin Carving Techniques” led by Stratford graphic artist Joe Pedoto at 7 p.m. Oct. 24, according to a release.
"The program, one of several special events being offered through November 13 in conjunction with the Library’s 'One Book, One Stratford' series, is free and open to the public," the release said.
          Pedoto’s favorite holiday is Halloween, the release said. "He’s been a graphic artist and designer for over 35 years and his work ranges from limited edition silk screen printmaking with the artists Robert Rauschenberg, Larry Rivers, Alex Katz, Will Barnet and LeRoy Neiman to digital print, web and photography projects (including 3D photography). He and his wife, Aimee were volunteers for 11 years with the Greenwich Village Halloween Parade. For the Library program, Pedoto will have several pumpkins along with the stencils and images he uses to transfer designs. He will explain the tools he uses and each stage of the process for creating unique and beautiful Halloween pumpkins."
The event will be held in the Stratford Library’s Lovell Room.
 For more information, call the Library’s Programs and Public Relation Office at 203-385-4162 and for a complete list of “One Book” events visit: www.stratfordlibrary.org/one-book-one-stratford/.
