Mark Niedhammer found this bald-faced hornet, since removed, at the mini golf course in Canaan. He photographed it with his Leica D-Lux 4 from a distance of about 6 feet. He said it took a root beer float to calm him down after photographing this aggressive insect.

Partners Prevail

Art

Partnership seems to be in the autumn air, at least at two current art shows. First came the Dunlops, father and son, whose collaborative paintings are on display at The White Gallery in Lakeville, CT. Now at the D. M. Hunt Library in Falls Village, CT, Shaari Horowitz and Alistair Jones are exhibiting work in a show they call Partners: Oil Paintings and Fine Furniture from a Happy Marriage.

The Word From Cartoon Mountain

Art and Wit

I’m talking by phone to the legendary cartoon editor of the legendary New Yorker: Bob Mankoff.

“The only place to go is down,” he cracks wise about being at the pinnacle of Cartoon Mountain. It’s Rosh Hashana and we’re celebrating the New Year — or at least I am — by chatting on the phone. I recognize the accent: pure born-in-the-Bronx-raised-in-Queens-heavily-influenced-by-Yiddish-Jewish kid.

Seeing Flowers Anew

Art

One of the pleasant things about following local artists is watching them develop. Or not. Janet André Block continues to cling to flowers like an avid gardener, but she has found new and increasingly interesting ways to paint them.

Double Dunlop at the White Gallery

Art:

The new show at The White Gallery might have been called Double Dunlop. Long-time White favorite David Dunlop is joined by his son, Max Dunlop, in an exhibition of paintings they made together, as well as some each made alone. The show is proof that the apple indeed does not fall far from the tree.

Roz Chast Draws Her Life, and Ours

Art

Whatever drifts into Roz Chast’s mind, it seems, drifts out again in words and pictures, distilled, yes, but unaltered.
In a sizable exhibit at the Norman Rockwell Museum in Stockbridge, MA, Chast’s dreams, and memories, and regrets and darkest worries are reckoned with on paper, many washed in candy pinks and greens; and her people — grumpy, ecstatic, bemused, all outlined in ink — draw museum viewers close. As though they want to be part of Chast’s stories.

It All Depends On Color and Texture

Art

Judith Singelis has never before cleared her entire gallery to concentrate on a single artist. But when her new show at Argazzi Art, Raw Impressions, opens on Saturday, Aug. 29, the space will be devoted entirely to Victor Mirabelli's gorgeous paintings of lonely structures — houses, barns, even a hotel —  long abandoned in placid rural settings.
