All About The Arts

Back in the day, Westport’s summer art show shut down Main Street.  The pavement was hot; there was little room to move, and — beyond a bit of music — there wasn’t much to keep you there, once you realized the piece you coveted was too pricey.

With a different venue and a new name, the Fine Arts Festival has taken a giant step forward.  The location — the express lane of Parker Harding Plaza and adjacent Gorham Island — invites strolling.  There’s more music, along with “performance artists.”  It really is a “festival,” not a “show.”

But I still can’t afford anything.

Sculptor Roger DiTarando of Vernon, CT has the best location of all, at the tip of Gorham Island. His gekkos like the spot too.

The professional talent had nothing on these 3 musicians.

  1. Dan it was a show to be seen. And this year a family friend showed his exceptional photography. Ironically, according to him and many many exhibitors they much rather be on Main Street.
