0*6*Art*Art*0 — Week 69 Gallery

It must be the weather.

Every artist in town is probably at the beach, busily painting and drawing and sculpting summer scenes.

How else to explain that this week’s art gallery is the smallest — just 4 submissions — since “06880” began this project 16 months ago.

Happily, the works are as intriguing as ever. They include a rare GIF from the prolific Karen Weingarten, and a first-ever piece from Angela La Pick.

Come on, everyone else! Join the fun. Watercolors, oils, charcoal, pen-and-ink, acrylics, lithographs, macramé, jewelry, sculpture, decoupage — whatever you’ve got, send it in.

Some of you are professional artists; others are amateurs. Experience does not matter! Email dwoog@optonline.net, to share your work with the world.

0*6*Art*Art*0 — Week 67 Gallery

Slim pickings this week. Only a few submissions. Hopefully people were off creating art, visiting galleries and museums — not just hanging out at the beach.

Not that there’s anything wrong with that.

As always, thanks for your submissions. Watercolors, oils, charcoal, pen-and-ink, acrylics, lithographs, macramé, jewelry, sculpture, decoupage — send it in!

We are particularly interested in student work, and art from readers who have not submitted before.

0*6*Art*Art*0 — Week 61 Gallery

After 60 weeks, we’ve turned a corner.

Only 2 this week’s art submissions refer specifically to the pandemic.

This feature began as a way for reader/artists to express their feelings — about COVID, the quarantine, the political climate, you name — through their favorite medium.

Now it’s evolved. The works we feature are more wide ranging. They’re a bit more nuanced. Just one more sign that the world is moving on.

As always: This is your gallery. Some of you are professionals; most are amateurs. Experience does not matter. We want all your art!

Student submissions are especially welcome. So are artists who have not submitted previously. Email dwoog@optonline.net, to share your work with the world.

“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.”

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.
