In the Midst of Life We Are in Art

It just seemed to appear one day, a very large mural of a crow and a swanning figure of a woman on one of the red painted bay doors in Lakeville’s old firehouse. Where did that come from? Why is it there? And, most urgently, who made it?

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. 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.”
