Celebrating a Vital and Treasured Institution in Falls Village

History

Among the notable events of 1891 — the first great train robbery by the Dalton Gang; premières of plays by Ibsen and Wilde; the opening of Carnegie Hall with Tchaikovsky conducting, and the introduction of the  Swiss Army knife  by Victorinox — The David M. Hunt Memorial Library opened its doors to subscribers who paid annual dues of $1 for the privilege and the pleasure of taking out books to read at home.

How Ideas in Art Appear … and Spread

Art

Pablo Picasso supposedly declared, “Good artists copy, great artists steal.” But who would have thought Jackson Pollock, that super-macho, testosterone-drenched inventor of drip painting, might have stolen the idea — and from a woman, Janet Sobel, some of whose work is the focus of an enlightening show at James Barron Art in Kent, CT.

Beautiful Things at The White Gallery

Art

It’s blue and green. And it’s hard to look away from: Avery Danziger’s “California Cow,” the striking image placed so that visitors to the White Gallery in Lakeville see it first thing: a deep green field taking the bottom half of the photograph; blue sky filling the rest, and way over left on the horizon is a black and white cow. This was the second shot Danziger took as the cow turned to look at him. Then he got back into his car and drove on.

An Artist’s Life On the River

Art

When my son Jeremy was 11 years old or so, he would take the Greyhound bus from the coffee shop on Route 7 in Falls Village to the next stop south which was Baird’s market in Cornwall Bridge.

Every weekend, Danielle Mailer shoots off an “e-blast,” to volunteers who gather at the Children’s Museum on Main Street in Torrington to work on the 60-foot-long mural of fish and water in blue and lime and maroon and orange and black and white. The entire brilliant scene of river life is scheduled for installation on the back of the Staples building overlooking Franklin Street in September.

Young Artists at Work

Art

Once again, The Maplebrook School — housed in a collection of bright yellow clapboard buildings off Route 22 in Amenia, NY —  is hosting its annual five-school art exhibit. This is the 12th time, Lori Hale tells me. She is the executive director of the Maplebrook School Foundation, a group charged with fundraising for the independent high school.

Six Women Artists at Noble Horizons

Partners in Art is a group of women who meet regularly to make and discuss art. Now it is also the title of their group show at Noble Horizons. Some fine pieces mixed with the middling remind us that artists, even great ones, can be interesting in lesser work too.
