0*6*Art*Art*0 — Week 48 Gallery

Winter lingers. Spring is around the corner.

Those are the twin themes of this week’s art gallery.

As we near a full year of this project, we continue to showcase your art — in whatever form you create it. You don’t have to be a pro, or even experienced. We want it all!

Art should be inspired by, relevant to, or somehow, in some way, connected to our current lives. Student submissions of all ages are especially welcome. So are artists who have not submitted before.

Email dwoog@optonline.net, to share your work with the world.

0*6*Art*Art*0 — Week 39 Gallery

The holidays and nature dominate this week’s art gallery. As always, works are varied, thought-provoking, creative and clever.

And as we’ve done every week since the pandemic struck, we highlight submissions from all artists. You don’t have to be a pro, or even experienced. We want it all!

Works should be inspired by, relevant to, or somehow, in some way, connected to our current lives. Student art of all ages is especially welcome.

0*6*Art*Art*0 — Week 15 Gallery

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 dwoog@optonline.net.

Oh My 06880 — Photo Challenge #63

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.”

Streaking In The Snow

With snow sticking to Assumption Church this morning — and more in the forecast — alert “06880” photographer Ellen Wentworth captured this intriguing image:

Snow Day!

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.

Bayberry Backyard

Unseasonably warm weather produces some unusual images.

This was the scene in Ellen Wentworth’s backyard this morning.
