As Westport reopens, the number of submissions to our Saturday art gallery slows.
Still, there’s plenty of good work to show. As always, our artists’ many moods are reflected in many mediums.
Keep ’em coming. Professional, amateur, old, young — we want it all. Student submissions are particularly welcome!
The only rule: Your art must be inspired by, reflective of, or otherwise related to the times we’re going through. Email firstname.lastname@example.org.

It wasn’t pretty — last week’s photo challenge, that is.
I don’t mean the results (though only Jackie Spencer, Barbara Sherburne and — sort of — Tom Turnbull knew the answer).
I mean the photo itself. It showed the graffiti and garbage that greets anyone driving or walking underneath I-95, on Franklin Street. Click here, if for some reason you’d like to see that grody sight.
(Bonus question: Who is responsible for that property: the town? State Department of Transportation? No one seems to know.)
This week, we go back to pretty pictures. If you recognize the image below, click “Comments.”
With snow sticking to Assumption Church this morning — and more in the forecast — alert “06880” photographer Ellen Wentworth captured this intriguing image:
Westport students received an unexpected day off from school today.
It wasn’t a blizzard — just a very pretty snowfall.
If you didn’t have to go out, it was a nice start to the weekend.
Even if you had to get on a train, it was not so bad:
For others, it’s a day for beauty. But not for sitting in the garden…
…or a hot tub.
Unseasonably warm weather produces some unusual images.
This was the scene in Ellen Wentworth’s backyard this morning.
She lives off Bayberry Lane. The Merritt Parkway is close — but today it seemed far, far away.
