Alert “06880” reader — and ace photographer — JP Vellotti sent me this shot, from the weekend’s Fine Arts Festival. He calls it “Abstract Irony.”
It took me a few seconds to figure out why he gave it that title.
When I realized the reason, it fit perfectly.

Meanwhile, kudos to the Westport Downtown Merchants Association for this year’s 45th annual event.
Over 180 exhibitors in charcoal, watercolor, pastel, pencil, ink, photography, digital art, sculpture, printmaking, mixed media, glass, ceramics, jewelry and wood filled Main Street, Elm Street and Church Lane.
Live music, special performances, children’s activities, food and non-profit groups’ exhibits added to the flair.
Around the corner, the Westport Library‘s annual book sale drew plenty of bargain hunters (some of whom were also paying serious prices for art).
The book (and CD) (and DVD) (and more) sale continues tomorrow (Monday, July 16, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., half price day) and Tuesday (9 a.m. to 1 p.m., everything free but contributions gladly accepted).
It was a great weekend to be downtown.
And I say that without any irony whatsoever.
