Art Exhibits/Openings

Lyman Allyn Art Museum, 625 Williams St., New London, CT , 06320

American Impressionist J. Alden Weir is most often associated with his studio at Weir Farm in western Connecticut, yet many of the artist’s best works were created at his little known retreat in Windham, where he painted each summer for nearly four decades. A Good Summer’s Work focuses on paintings created in eastern Connecticut by Weir and others in his circle, including Childe Hassam, Emil Carlsen and John Singer Sargent. Bringing together for the first time more than forty works from museums and private collections across the country, the exhibit considers the unique inspiration that American Impressionists drew from the eastern Connecticut landscape; runs through Sept. 11

"The Welliver show is extensive in size and medium, perhaps one of the largest installations of his work since his death in 2005." says Laurie Perzley, art curator of the Thos. Moser Freeport Showroom.

Earning a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from the Philadelphia Museum College of Art (now University of the Arts) and an MFA at Yale University, Welliver went on to teach at Yale for 10 years and later became chairman of the University of Pennsylvania Graduate School of Fine Art. As such, the exhibit will also feature pieces by Welliver's students--all current residents of Maine--as well as works of Mt.

Commotion Potion Opening Reception

Saturday, May. 28, 2016, 7:00 pm
 Commotion Potion Opening Reception;

Art Exhibits/Openings

Hygienic Art Inc., 79 Bank Street, New London, , 06320

Show runs April 30 - May 29

Commotion Potion is an exhibition featuring new paintings by Eben Kling. This solo-exhibit is travelling to New London from the Occum Gallery in Providence. Kling’s studio practice is informed by American pop-culture. His figures, riddled with anxiety, seek refuge from media that is steeped in calamity and seemingly endless cultural disasters. Kling’s colorful and humorous paintings reference hyper-saturation of advertising in American culture--he collages found cartoons and clipart, intermingling with figures that wander compositions both intimately familiar and alien.

Borrowing from advertising media and digestible imagery, Kling incorporates and repaints this clipart, using the images as both compositional and conceptual elements. In The Kids Love It (2015) re-purposed crowds of cartoon children cheering are juxtaposed by an anxiety-riddled televised political debate. The absurdity of the stock images creates visual and conceptual tension with Kling’s invented figures. By accessing the cartoon lexicon, Kling is able to address serious and concerning cultural issues, utilizing a vocabulary that is both immediate and accessible. His figures, distorted and obscured, humorously address both consumerism and escapism. They are crushed by their own weight as they drink, smoke, and burrow away in attempts to distance themselves from over-stimulation.

Eben Kling received his BFA from Montserrat College of Art in 2009 and his MFA from Umass Amherst in 2015. He is recipient of the 2014 St. Botolph Club grant for emerging artists. He is one half of the independent curatorial project PlayLaborPlay and is currently the artist in residence at Artspace New Haven.

Niantic Bay Boardwalk of East Lyme- Volunteering to fulfill a Dream;

Community

Hole-in-the-Wall- East Lyme Boardwalk, Baptist Lane, Niantic, East Lyme, CT , 06320

In 2004, before the opening of the East Lyme Boardwalk, Bill Rinowski agreed to be in charge of the East Lyme Public Trust’s fund-raising promotion of plaques to be placed on the Niantic Bay Overlook. Bill soon recruited his wife, Fran, who has been the person keeping track of the forms and placing the orders. Bill has done the publicity and assisted in the installation of the boards. Together, they have served the Public Trust in this capacity for 12 years!

When I asked Bill why they were willing to take on this project and continue with it for such a long time, he said, “I believed in the Boardwalk from the beginning, and this project was one contribution that we could do while still working full time-at that point- to make this dream come true. I signed up to see this project through to the completion of the re-built Boardwalk.” Every town should have volunteers with this dependability and perseverance. The Trust presently has 1,617 plaques lining the East End of the Boardwalk. These plaques have come from over 27 states and two foreign countries with a unique story behind every plaque-celebrating weddings, anniversaries, births, and graduations. They express Loss, Sorrow, Laughter and Contentment. Historians will be well served to research this mirror of the Heart and Soul of a small town in Connecticut in the 21st Century.

The Trust has now entered Phase Two of the sponsorships. If you have enjoyed walking the boardwalk, you can be a part of this opportunity to be a permanent part of the Niantic Boardwalk. For a $100 tax deductible contribution you can sponsor a plaque engraved with your personal message, to be placed on the re-constructed West End of the Boardwalk. The foundation uses the money raised from the sponsorship of the boards to contribute to the maintenance of the Overlook.

If you would like to sponsor a board, please download the application form and mail it in with your donation of $100.

Don’t miss this opportunity to tell your unique story!

On Saturday, May 28, 2016, at 11 a.m., The East Lyme Public Trust Foundation, in co-operation with The East Lyme Parks and Recreation Department, will sponsor the official Re-Dedication of the Niantic Bay Boardwalk of East Lyme. The Re-Dedication ceremony, which will be held on the Boardwalk, will feature as key-note speaker, Sen. Paul Formica, former First Selectman of East Lyme. Other speakers will include First Selectman-Mark Nickerson, Public Trust President- Joe Legg, Public Trust Past-President- Bob
DeSanto, Public Trust Vice-President-John Hoye, and Parks and Recreation Director- Dave Putnam.

The East Lyme Public Trust Foundation wants to invite the general public to witness this historic occasion. In addition, they would especially like to encourage the participation of the 200 people who have dedicated benches and the innumerable people who have sponsored plaques. They would also love to welcome all members of the Trust- Past and Present- and all those who originally helped make the Boardwalk a reality.

PARKING for Saturday’s event will be behind St. John’s Church at 400 Main Street (across from The Children’s Museum of SECT). There is a foopath from St. Jon’s to Hole in the Wall Beach and the Boardwalk.

Participants should enter the Boardwalk at Hole-in-the Wall, on Baptist Lane, Niantic. Then, there will be a short walk to the area of the monument where the ceremony will take place.
After the ceremony, participants will have the opportunity to visit “their bench” and re-visit “their plaque”. During and after the dedication, music will be provided by Trust member, Bill Rinoski . This historic occasion will be videotaped, as a public service, by Mike Rydene of Media Potions of East Lyme. High school volunteers will be on hand to greet participants and to help with directions.
