0*6*Art*Art*0 — Week 44 Gallery

This was a busy week. Most readers held their breath — then exhaled — as we changed presidents and power.

There were not many submissions to this week’s art gallery. But as always, we celebrate Westport’s creativity.

And hope. In late January, there is one work titled “Spring.”

0*6*Art*Art*0 — Week 42 Gallery

Maybe it was the post-holiday lull. Perhaps saving our country from insurrectionists took precedence.

Whatever the reason, this week’s art gallery drew only 4 submissions.

Fortunately, they’re all colorful and upbeat.

Winter scenes predominate this week. That’s no surprise. And it’s no surprise that they run the gamut, in style and scope.

This is the last art gallery — of 2020, that is. Next week — January 1 — we’ll start our 2021 gallery.

The idea is to highlight submissions from any local artist. You don’t have to be a pro, or even experienced. We want it all!
