0*6*Art*Art*0 — Week 8 Gallery

Congratulations! We’re already at Week 8 of our pandemic art gallery.

Every Saturday, “06880” highlights readers’ creativity. Professional, amateur, old, young — you send us your paintings, collages, sketches, photos, sculptures, chalkwork, cartoons, whatever.

The only rule: It must be inspired by, reflective of, or otherwise related to the times we’re going through.

After 2 months, we’re still going strong. Keep the submissions coming (including students, of any grade!). Just email dwoog@optonline.net.

0*6*Art*Art*0 — Week 6 Gallery

Welcome to the 6th edition of our online art gallery.

Every Saturday, we share readers’ artwork. Professional, amateur, old, young  — send us your painting, collage, sketch, photo, sculpture, chalkwork, cartoon, whatever.

The only rule is it must be inspired by, reflective of, or otherwise related to the times we’re going through. We’re all experiencing tons of emotions, and art is a wonderful way to express (and share) them. Email your submission to dwoog@optonline.net.

Keep the submissions coming. If yours is not posted yet, be patient. There will be more next Saturday. And unfortunately, for some time to come.

Patricia McMahon spotted this hand-painted shell on the Compo Beach seawall.

Jana Ireijo began painting a koala in response to the Australian brushfires. Now, in isolation, she found it soothing to work on again. You can see the shape of Australia on the nose; in the highlight of the eye is the state of Connecticut. “It’s a reminder to me of how connected we all are,” Jana says.

“This Too Shall Pass” (Beth DeVoll)

Sea glass (Pam LaRocca)

Greens Farms Elementary School 3rd grader Carter Klein sends an important message.

Staples High School senior Morgan Fierro found an old, never built special LEGO in his attic. Here’s the finished product.

June Eichbaum says, “whoever painted this wall and planted plastic tulips at Hidden Hill Road on South Compo turned drab concrete into a happy day.”

Amy Schneider says, “thank you, first responders!”

“Random” (Werner Liepolt)

Karen Weingarten took these photos last summer. She looks forward to their inspiring return soon.

Nell Waters Bernegger took this Winslow Park photo last summer. She calls it “the gateway to hope.”

Susan Joy Miller explains, “These are Tai chi moves I miss doing as we shelter in place. Fair Lady works her shuttle, hands moving like clouds, white crane spreads its wings, sweep the lotus with a kick, repulse the monkey and snake creeps down.”

“Monet Moment on the Saugatuck” (Tom Kretsch)

“Still Life with Sanitizer” (JoAnn Davidson, former Westport teacher, age 89)

“Social Isolation is Getting Old” (Beth DeVoll, who notes that the Kewpie Doll was created by Westport’s own Rose O’Neill in the early 1900s).

This represents Hugo Arber’s full house, and all the card games his family is playing. He’s a 3rd grader at Coleytown Elementary School — and today is his 9th birthday!

“Is baking art?” asks Amy Saperstein. “Some meringues and Oreo chocolate chip cookies were made completely independently by Myla Saperstein, age 11, but eaten by all the Sapersteins.” The “06880” answer: This is GREAT art! 

Irene Mastriocovo says, “My yard is now my go-to for walks. I’m enjoying the little things in life, like the birth of spring. The budding plants and flowers bring hope.”
