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.”

Send us 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.

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.

Each week, our “06880” gallery highlights works from local artists. You don’t have to be a pro, or even experienced. We want it all!

Welcome to a special New Year’s edition of our Saturday art gallery.

Nearly all submissions this week had a holiday theme — and all are by women. The colors are vibrant, the feeling exhilarating. 2020 is in the rear view mirror. Full speed ahead!

0*6*Art*Art*0 — Week 40 Gallery

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!

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 33 Gallery

Perhaps there were other things going on last week. Maybe our artists were distracted.

Whatever the reason, we had only 3 submissions for our weekly art gallery. All however are timely.

One is political. One is autumnal. One is social. It’s a nice juxtaposition.

As always we welcome submissions from all artists. 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 32 Gallery

Last week it was Halloween. This week it’s Election Day.

But there’s always autumn. At least, for a week or two more.
