Something for Everyone At Black Squirrel Antiques

Antiques

Black Squirrel Antiques, which opened its doors in February 2017, has just celebrated its two year anniversary in Lakeville. Owners Joni Beveridge and Tom Emerick have cleverly repurposed a large, former office building on Main Street into an appealing treasure trove. The many rooms of the building’s main floor have been expertly arranged, allowing for a large and varied collection to unveil itself bit by bit, but never to overwhelm. The result is a warm and inviting space brimming with irresistible finds.

Millerton’s Montage Is Charming and Affordable

Antiques

Walk into Jennings & Rohn Montage on Millerton’s Main Street and the first thing you see is a classical figure, a woman bearing a pitcher of water and a demure countenance. She is draped and sculpted and perhaps a bit aged in the tradition of classical Greek art. The tag dangling from her wrist says $595.
Take a step to the right and there’s an enormous, lean, bent, Giacometti-tinged figure, his armature daubed with chunks of cement: Price, $1,650.  But lest you get the wrong idea here, a stunning little duck made of lead would set you back $12.

Landscapes Truly From The Earth

Art

If you didn’t already know that Don Bracken paints with dirt — when you see the work you will feel a visceral connection between the painter, the paint and the earth. 
Bracken, a California- born, Berkeley-educated, landscape artist used to paint with acrylics on canvas. Always immersed in the landscape, Bracken was painting in a field on a farm in the Connecticut Valley, when, he says, he was “sick of painting with regular paint,” so he picked up a scoop of earth and mixed it in with the paint beginning this phase of his work.

Crazy Inventions By A Smart Guy

Art: ‘The Art And Wit Of Rube Goldberg’

If the Norman Rockwell Museum is something of a shrine to American values—patriotism, family, and the white picket fence—then devoting one of its galleries to the madcap drawings of Rube Goldberg is like inviting the class clown into the pulpit.

Ellen Emmet Rand In UConn Exhibit

Art: ‘The Business of Bodies: Ellen Emmet Rand (1875 -1941) And The Persuasion of Portraiture’

One day Ellen Emmet Rand’s paintings will be viewed on their merit and not because a woman did them. In spite of the show’s long-winded title, the work stands on its own. The eminent American portraitist was a gifted painter and an independent woman. Her work speaks for itself in a current exhibit of her portraits at University of Connecticut’s Benton Museum of Art.
