Spring keeps hanging on in Westport.

And our talented “06880” artists keep painting and photographing it.

This week’s art gallery shimmers with the splendors of the season. Here’s our latest selection of reader/artist works.

Some of you are professionals; most are amateurs. Experience does not matter. We want all your art!

“May the Bird of Paradise Fly Up Your Nose” (John Gould)

“Inside a Rainbow of Hope” (Amy Schneider)

“Kenzie.” Artist Beth Berkowitz says: “I had not painted or drawn since high school, when I decided I didn’t want to study art for a career, and have it become a chore with deadlines.
I thought I would work in a ‘real job,’ then always have my art to relax with. However, life took off and I never found the time. Now I’m making the time, and find it soothing and therapeutic.”

“Close-Up” (Lucy Johnson)

“Trees at Earthplace (Rowene Weems)

This week’s art gallery opens with a new artist.

Evan Sealove — age 10 — moved to Westport with his family in August. During COVID, he discovered Bob Ross’ videos. Evan decided to try painting on his own. His mother Joselyn got supplies at Michaels. He got to work. The result is impressive.

We welcome Evan — and, as we do each week, we welcome whatever art form suits your mood. You don’t have to be a pro, or even experienced. Send it all!

0*6*Art*Art*0 — Week 52 Gallery

Ta-da! We did it!

Today, “06880” celebrates one full year of our Saturday morning art gallery.

In those first frightening days of the pandemic, I put out the call: Create art. Then send it in. A welcome tradition was born.

It was a way for artists and photographers to work through so many jumbled emotions. It was a way too for readers around the world to appreciate our artists, without the galleries and shows they always relied on.

In the beginning, work was entirely COVID-related. Oils, lithographs, sketches, photos, crafts — they showed masks, isolation, hearts. They evoked fear, uncertainty, hope.

Over time, other themes emerged. The summer’s Black Lives Movement sparked a new type of art — and a familiar welter of mixed emotions.

Gradually, our gallery changed. Nature emerged. Traditional scenes reappeared. Whimsy popped up.

Coincidentally, 12 artists contributed works to this week’s anniversary gallery. That’s one for every month we’ve endured.

There is light at the end of the tunnel. Let’s hope it’s not an onrushing train.

Meanwhile, our “06880” art gallery will continue. As always, we welcome whatever form suits your mood. You don’t have to be a pro, or even experienced. Send it all!

Student submissions of all ages are especially welcome. So are artists who have not submitted before.
