The Apocalypse Is Good For You

Why are we drawn to post-apocalypse stories? One theory is that shows of social chaos and survival prepare us better for the fearful time we live in and that fans of such stories are better able to cope with anxiety.

So turn off the news, cut down on your meds and watch these two very different and exceptional shows.

Botanicals by Moss at Argazzi Art

Art gallery owners don’t always love every work they show, but Judith Singelis clearly has a passion for the work of Kathy Moss, on display now at her Argazzi Gallery in Lakeville, Conn.

“It’s the kind of work I love,” she said. “Spare. Bold. Simple. Iconic imagery.

“I find her work compelling and hypnotic.”

A special collection of canvases by Robert Cronin will be shown at his hometown library, the D.M. Hunt in Fall Village, Conn., beginning March 18. Included is Green Dress on Black. Image courtesy DM Hunt 

Cronin Sketches, Grown to Full Canvases

About four years ago, Robert Cronin, just before falling asleep at night in his home studio in Falls Village, Conn., found himself doing small line drawings in pencil on 8 x 6inch pads of Fabriano paper. They were like little prayers.

‘Salome’ at Bard

The Bard College Conservatory of Music in Anandale on Hudson, N.Y., presents “Salome,” an opera by Richard Strauss with libretto by Oscar Wilde on Friday, March 18, at 8 p.m. and Sunday, March 20, at 2 p.m.

The performances will be in the Sosnoff Theater in the Frank Gehry-designed Fisher Center.

What We Mean When We Talk About Pudding

Most Brits have at least heard of Coronation Chicken and have probably eaten it at least once. For those who haven’t, it’s kind of a curry-based cold chicken-with-sauce that was invented in 1953 for Queen Elizabeth’s coronation luncheon.

Luminous Landscapes by Photographer Nick Jacobs

Nick Jacobs has been a fixture in Cornwall, Conn., for many years. Never seen without his camera, he often bops around town with his manual portable typewriter in his Volvo station wagon. Speak with Nick for a moment and you’ll feel like you’ve been let into a new way of seeing the world.
