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. Like the doyenne it is — the Atheneum opened in 1844 and is the country's oldest, continuously operating art museum — it could have chosen one of those new buildings or additions that add lifeless and mostly useless space.

With a Point To Make

Art

It’s what art does: transform the ordinary, giving it new meaning. Sometimes it makes even the gargantuan and forbidding a wonder to see and think about.

From the artgarage, Mentors Show Their Own Work

Art

At a time when funding for the arts in public schools is reduced yearly, it is reassuring that artgarage exists and thrives at Housatonic Valley Regional High School. This after-school art studio, privately funded, is open every afternoon and staffed by volunteer adults who act as art mentors. All are practicing artists and artisans, some full-time, some part-time.

Artists Honored for Their Contributions To Our Cultural Scene

The Art Scene

The Northwest Connecticut Arts Council is housed in a gem of a small art deco building on Torrington’s Main Street. It’s a beautiful place to do the work of supporting painting and theater and literature and music and photography and dance, as well as the people who make all these arts happen. That’s what Amy Wynn and her staff of three do there, she says. “We support people who make art. We encourage collaborating and connecting.”

Photo Gallery

I went out to get some shots of Scott mowing our field. When I looked downfield to where he had already mowed, I saw a red-tail hawk on the freshly cut field searching for lunch (mice probably). I took a few pics from some distance and then slowly approached him. I thought my getting closer might cause him to fly off, but instead he came right for me on the ground, wings spread out to make himself look big. I stopped and he stopped. Then he did a little more hunting and took off for a tree.

Finding Her Own Way To Be An Artist

The Art Scene: Lynn Curtis

Walking into Diane Schapira’s pottery studio is like entering an Aladdin’s den of creativity. Rows of glazed clay plates, bowls, mugs, pots and pitchers in serene earth tones and sea-bright blues are surrounded by an assortment of totemic-looking clay figures, sleek glazed ceramic slabs, and smoky gray clay beads.  

“Oh, this is another idea I’m working on,“ she exclaims often, as she moves through her labyrinth of display shelves.
