Last week was gorgeous. But 15 artists, photographers, needle-pointers and necklace makers stayed inside long enough to send their submissions in to our online art gallery.
That’s the most ever, since this feature was born in the first lonely weeks of the pandemic.
Thank you, thank you, thank you. Now keep ’em coming!

Artist Steve Stein says: “Every kindergartener has a nightmare that when they get to school ,,,’Every Cubby is Taken!'”
Photographer Lisa Tantillo was I was at Westoberfest last weekend, and saw a bubble machine. She snapped this photo before the bubble burst. She likes how “the event space (aka the Elm Street parking lot) is reflected in the bubble.”
“Vermont Village” (Lucy Johnson)
“The Reading Room” (Lawrence Weisman)

“Whoa! It’s a Stutz Bearcat Roadster, 1920) (Peter Barlow)

“Tuscany” (Werner Liepolt)
Untitled. Artist Sharon Paulsen says, “this is from the latest full moon. It is partially hidden behind trees at the right, but a brilliant star (planet) caught my eye on the left, so that was my focus.”

“Who Done It?” Photographer Mike Hibbard says, There is a quarter-mile long brushy hillside on our walking route, used as a dump by passersby traveling between the Post Road to Greens Farm Road. My wife and I periodically do a clean-up along that stretch. Here is our latest bounty. The good news is that in our entire 4-mile walk around our neighborhood, we found only one discarded plastic bag of puppy-poo. Thank you to the many dog walkers in our area.”
