CORNWALL — The massive ball of yarn is a two-and-a-half ton hunk of intricately carved bluestone.

The pair of 13-foot wood knitting needles propped up against it are repurposed bridge boards.

Together, they are a work of art conveying the theme “The Fabric That Binds Us,” created by stoneworker Laurent Serriere. The sculpture was one of several works of art on display Saturday, Oct. 20, at the Trinity Retreat Center in West Cornwall featuring salvaged floor boards from the town’s iconic Covered Bridge. The exhibit was part of the Cornwall Association...

karenb@lakevillejournal.com

CORNWALL – “A long time,” is Erica (Child) Prud’homme’s best offhand guess as to how many years she has exhibited in the Rose Algrant Show, Cornwall’s annual August art exhibition.
“I knew Rose, and loved her,” Prud’homme said of the woman who held regular gatherings at her Cornwall home that became a sort of enclave for local artists. The dogs sketched by Cornwall residents James Thurber and Marc Simont were often modeled on the Great Pyrenees that Algrant raised.

Author will discuss dark secrets hidden in archives

karenb@lakevillejournal.com

CORNWALL — The moment Susan Reverby laid eyes on the research documents, she knew she had found something hidden in plain sight.
“I was floored. This was something no one was looking for,” she told The Lakeville Journal, recalling a visit to the library at the University of Pittsburgh in early 2010.
A professor of Women’s and Gender Studies at Wellesley College, and obsessive about finding original documents, Reverby was tying up loose ends for her book, “Examining Tuskegee: The Infamous Syphilis Study and its Legacy.”

Milkhouse and more at Rose Algrant Show, Aug. 5 and 6

karenb@lakevillejournal.com

CORNWALL — A pottery vase full of textures and asymmetry, achieved through manipulation of clay and glaze is a unique and elegant piece on a showroom shelf at Milkhouse Pottery.
“I worked a long time to make it look spontaneous,” Susan Fox said.
Next to it, a more traditional pedestal cake plate has wedges marked off in the glaze, as a guide for cutting slices. Fox calls it “bossy.”
Forty years of experience and experimentation, combined with a lively sense of humor give Fox’s creations a sense of diversity, melding the classic with fresh ideas.

Good news: Cornwall underspent

karenb@lakevillejournal.com

CORNWALL — Sure, blame the bad economy when there are town budget woes and tax increases. But who gets credit when the bottom line is solidly in the black, in spite of it all?
In Cornwall, it looks like a combination of careful planning and spending, energy conservation and good timing all account for a 2010-11 budget that came in about $276,000 lower than projected.
There were some line item overages here and there, but every department marked savings elsewhere that kept the bottom line in check.

Now, that’s easy riding: three wheels instead of two

karenb@lakevillejournal.com

CORNWALL — The generation that produced diehard motorcycle riders is aging, and getting to the point where waning strength, bum backs and bad knees are making riding anywhere from unpleasant to downright dangerous.
Count among that group Jim Batterton. He’s an enthusiast who has long built motorcycles at his Kent Road home. Now, with an artificial knee, a construction career over and a wife who refuses to ride with him since he dumped a bike in their driveway, he is turning to the option that is allowing many to pursue their riding passion: the trike.

karenb@lakevillejournal.com

CORNWALL — Ah, summer. Swimming, picnics, road work. The latter may not be very welcome now, but it will be when next spring arrives.
Expected to begin this week is repaving of Cream Hill Road, from the school to the Cherry Hill Road intersection.
Popple Swamp Road and roads south of the center of Cornwall Bridge will be resurfaced in various ways — asphalt, chip seal and sand and oil — in August.
First Selectman Gordon Ridgway reminds drivers to expect some delays and road closures, and to be cautious on newly resurfaced roads, especially those with a layer of sand.
