Art Exhibits/Openings

The 4th Annual Connecticut Printmakers Invitational (CPI) will open with a public reception on Saturday March 21, from 6 – 9 p.m. at Hygienic Art, 79 Bank Street, New London, and will run till April 18.
The impetus for the creation of this Annual Connecticut Printmakers Invitational came into being as a way to foster understanding and appreciation of the art of printmaking. Art enthusiasts are given the opportunity to appreciate the different printmaking techniques from etching to lithography and understand the tremendous skill and craft that goes into producing a print. This exhibit is held in a different part of Connecticut and different gallery each year in order to share printmaking with as many Connecticut residents as possible. The professional printmakers invited to exhibit in this show also come from Connecticut and the high quality work they display varies greatly in their subject matter and technique.

Participating artists include Irene Miller (Monotype), Jo Yarrington (Chiné Colle, Polaroid Transfer and Transfer Print), Shirley Bernstein (Color Woodcuts, Skyscapes), Meldoy Leary (Photopolymer Intaglio), Yelizaveta Masalimova (Monoprints and Intaglio), Karen Vogel (Monoprints), Renee Santhouse (Trace Monoprints), Alexia Lalande (Woodcuts), Natasha Feliciano (Etching). This year’s 4th CPI is curated by Sarah McKay.

“We are thrilled to bring a new learning experience to our community that will provide a greater appreciation of the opera as a musical genre. The lecture series will bring insights into a composer’s use of historical context and themes for exploring society’s values and their relationship to contemporary culture, “ said Library Director Mary Fiorelli.” The Connecticut Humanities grant allows us to explore musical style as a reflection of ourselves.”

Connecticut Humanities, a non-profit affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities, provides opportunities to explore the history, literature and the vibrant culture that makes our state, cities and towns attractive places to live and work. Learn more by visiting cthumanities.org.

The East Lyme Public Trust Foundation in co-operation with the East Lyme Parks and Recreation Department is pleased to announce a new project to raise funds for the support of the Niantic Bay Boardwalk and other projects of the Trust. They are offering sponsors a commemorative tree program- TREES FOR TOMORROW- which will make available commemorative trees to be placed in public spaces in East Lyme.

Trees can be donated to commemorate a birth, wedding, graduation, etc. They can also honor a loved one or a special event. This is a chance to use the resonating power of trees to create a lasting, living memorial that will provide scenic beauty and contribute to a healthy ecosystem.

Sponsors may choose to locate a tree at Cini Park, McCook Point Park, Bridebrook Park, The Samuel Smith House, The Smith-Harris House, The East Lyme Library Courtyard, or East Lyme Town Hall. A contribution of $600 for a tree will cover the cost of the tree, planting, an 8”x4” plaque, a base, and a water bag to assist in the stabilization of the tree.

Planting will take place in the spring and fall of 2015. The first phase will offer 25 trees for planting in the various locations chosen by the Tree Warden and the East Lyme Parks and Rec. Department. Since the East Lyme Public Trust Foundation is a non-profit 401c, contributions are tax deductible.

June Hoye is the chairperson for the project in partnership with Dave Putnam, the Director of Parks and Recreation. Her committee includes Carol Marelli and Bill Rinowski-administration, and Pat and Jack Lewis, who will assist in Publicity.

Application forms will be available at: East Lyme Town Hall, East Lyme Parks and Rec., East Lyme Library, and the E.L. Book Barn. They also can be found on the Trust web-site: www.publictrustfoundation.org

Katie Glassman and Snapshot

Music

North Madison Congregational Church, 1271 Durham Rd, Madison, CT , 06443

Katie’s a 2-time National Fiddle champion, has won Winfield and Rockygrass. She’s also got a degree in classical music performance, one in jazz music performance, and is only the second American accepted to the Centre Musique Didier Lockwood in France. That sounds great, but when you hear she and the band, it becomes almost irrelevant. They hail from the high plains of Colorado, and the music shows. It’s the Hot Club of Cowtown meets the Sons of The Pioneers. When Katie sings, it’s a timeless voice that could come from anywhere, anytime. The band? Effortless perfection. She may be a relative unknown on the east coast, but it won’t stay that way for very long. And yes, there’s a free workshop at 3:00 PM, where you can get a hard-core introduction to the world of contest fiddling by one of the best there is. Adults, $20; kids high school and under, $5.00
