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.

Simple Clay in Imaginative Hands

Art

Horses and rabbits, squares that might have been cut from aging walls, men and women entwining their limbs and torsos as if clutching each other for dear life, all created from clay and fired in various ways. Such is the fascinating new exhibition at The White Gallery in Lakeville, CT.

A Pleasant Look Back At a Quirky Time

Art

There is something comforting about Jeffrey Neumann's oil and pastel paintings now on view at the upstairs gallery of  The Moviehouse in Millerton, NY,  in a solo exhibition called “Vanishing America.” Like long lost friends or your favorite childhood meal, they conjure up days and times past.

For Ira Barkoff, It’s the Process

Art

Along a shelf in his Cornwall studio Ira Barkoff has propped up a line of small canvases. “This is my life,” he says. And so it is, his art life, anyway: at one end, still lifes of fruit; moving into the center, landscapes; and at the end signifying the most recent ideas, there is a black canvas with an impetuous streak of red at the bottom, like a low horizon. “It shows me my direction, these paintings.”
