“Pride” (Amy Schneider)

“”Outside Angelina’s” (Ellen Wentworth)

Untitled. Artist Eric Bosch says: “Like all kids of the ’50s & ’60s, we always imagined ourselves in a band. One of our pals — Bill Harley — actually made this dream come true, We all just got together for our annual weekend golf reunion in Vermont. I painted this for the occasion, and gave each of them a framed print.”

“Irises on Iris Lane” (Elena Nasereddin)

Artist Brian Whelan says: “Bloomsday is an international celebration of ‘Ulysses,’ written by James Joyce. The big thick book takes place in 1 day: 16th June. 1904 Dublin has celebrated it for many years. Now it has spread all over the world. There are readings, re-enactments, eating a kidney for breakfast, a brothel scene, etc. A few years ago I was approached by someone in Taiwan who was going to Dublin for the Bloomsday Festival. He wanted my image of Joyce to be reproduced on his group’s t-shirts. In their celebrations they came across a painting I did that hangs permanently in the library of the James Joyce Centre in Dublin.”

Happy Memorial Day weekend!

Westport celebrates with its 48th annual Fine Arts Festival. It’s been moved from the traditional bake-on-the-asphalt-in-mid-July date to a more artist-and-art-lover-friendly late May slot.

Main Street is the place to go, to see fantastic works of all types and styles. It’s today and tomorrow — Saturday and Sunday — from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Click here for more details.

To get you in the mood, enjoy “06880”‘s own tradition: our weekly art gallery. Like the downtown one, it’s free!

Remember: This is your gallery. We rely on your submissions.

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.

“On the Way to the Beach” (Lawrence Weisman)

“Peony” (Amy Schneider)

“Amelie.” Elizabeth Hiltz painted her daughter. The artist says: “The time not commuting has allowed me to focus again on my painting. It has taken a new turn though, and now I’m enjoying exploring the portrait as I never have before. I love diving in, in a way which also makes the subject’s heart sing — surrounded by their fondest things in life. A shift in one’s mindset during COVID, and a literal reminder of what’s important in life.”
