Online Art Gallery — Week 100

Our online art gallery began nearly 2 years ago, during one crisis: the first weeks of COVID.

We celebrate Week 100 during another: Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.

As you’ve done for 100 weeks now, you — painters, photographers, sculptors, weavers and many other types of artists, from Westport and the rest of Fairfield County and far beyond — have sent us again some very compelling works.

They address current events, and timeless themes. They are colorful, somber, thought-provoking and inspiring. Thank you for all of them.

Whatever your muse, we appreciate your submissions. This gallery is open to all readers. Whatever your age and level of experience — professional or amateur, young or old. In every medium. On every topic.

All genres are encouraged. Watercolors, oils, charcoal, pen-and-ink, acrylics, lithographs, macramé, jewelry, sculpture, decoupage and needlepoint — whatever you’ve got, email it to dwoog@optonline.net. Share your work with the world — as wonderful and worrisome as that world may be.

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!

“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.”

“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.”

0*6*Art*Art*0 — Week 24 Art Gallery

Happy Labor Day weekend!

That’s the theme of a few of this week’s art gallery submissions. As we enjoy this end-of-a-strange-summer holiday, we also celebrate the wonders of Westport.

As always, all submissions are welcome — in any medium. The only rule: It should be inspired by, relevant to, or somehow, in some way, connected to our current world. Student art of all ages is especially welcome.

Coronavirus, social justice, politics, or just the beauty around us — have at it! Email dwoog@optonline.net, to share your work with the world.

“Current Issues.” Photographer Rowene Weems — who took this shot at Assumption Cemetery on Kings Highway North — says, “Initially I was fascinated by the broken edges of the tree (there are so many these days. Lightning? Wind? Crazy!). Then, by the flag in the tree. Was the flag there first or after? Then I began to see it all more symbolically. There’s a lot going on in our world right now that feels pretty shattering.”
