In the Midst of Life We Are in Art

It is clearly and distinctly the work of Danielle Mailer, with its fanciful scrolls and minuscule details, and the feeling of figures caught in a spirited and benign wind.

A Day in the Studio of Peter Woytuk with Friends

Peter Woytuk's studio in Kent, CT, may remind you of an auto repair garage. Every surface and shelf is chock-a-block with bronze or iron fruits, birds, tiny animals. Three laptops lie open on a dusty table. The space, just behind the Kent firehouse, is huge, with a warehouse door on one side that opens to a grass and dirt field — big enough for bronze bulls to come and go, but not enormous elephants.

Taking In a Museum Makeover

Art: Leon Graham

Hartford's Wadsworth Atheneum has been much ballyhooed by art writers and publications since its great unveiling.
