Melissa Barbieri: Memories, Dreams & Archetypes

Thursday, Dec. 3, 2020, 12:00 am
Melissa Barbieri: Memories, Dreams & Archetypes;

Art Exhibits/Openings

Lyman Allyn Art Museum, 625 Williams Street, New London, CT , 06320

This exhibition showcases the work of CT artist Melissa Barbieri, highlighting a recent series of large-scale works on paper. Working in watercolor and India ink, we see the influence of the desert of the American Southwest on Barbieri’s oceanic perceptions. Transcribing her visions in calligraphy and symbolism, Barbieri has recorded her stream of consciousness in an uninterrupted flow, often working late into the night. By combining text with symbols and imagery she has produced detailed, highly personal works of art reminiscent of codices or scrolls, containing elements of science and nature, history and literature, philosophy and spirituality, and resulting in a substantive body of work, inviting the viewer to explore her dreams and visions.

Handmade Wreaths Featured in Online Fundraiser
Browse Dozens of Unique Creations, Bid in Support of the Stonington Historical Society

Our annual Deck the Walls event, a seasonal favorite for vendors and patrons alike, is moving online this year to accommodate everyone’s safety during the pandemic.
For more than a dozen years now, the Stonington Historical Society has gathered one-of-a-kind, handmade wreaths and holiday décor and invited community members to bid on their favorites. Each item is generously donated by local florists, interior designers, students, businesses, non-profits, and others looking to showcase their creativity. This year, the Historical Society will display each wreath virtually at deckthewalls.givesmart.com, where bidders can register for free to place their bids. The site is designed for use on a smartphone, alerting participants if they’ve won – or been outbid.
The auction begins on Wednesday, Dec. 2, and continues through Friday, Dec. 4. Winners may pick up their items at the Capt. Nathaniel Palmer House, 40 Palmer St.
Deck the Walls is held in collaboration with the Stonington Garden Club.
All proceeds from the event support the Historical Society’s community programming, its museums, and the Woolworth Library.
Founded in 1895, the Stonington Historical Society preserves, interprets and celebrates the history of all of Stonington, Conn. The Historical Society owns and operates the Captain Nathaniel B. Palmer House, the Lighthouse Museum and the Woolworth Research Library, as well as maintaining its collection of objects and documents, and offering educational programming throughout the year.

The Fisher in Connecticut, Dec. 3

7 p.m.
The Fisher in Connecticut Zoom Presentation
December 3rd @ 7:00 PM The fisher cat is a large member of the Mustelidae (weasel) family. Its name is misleading because unlike the closely related river otter, fishers seldom eat fish. Common names include fisher cat, black cat, and pekan. Alert and secretive, the fisher is a rewarding sight to the wildlife observer. …… Finding and identifying fisher tracks can add interest to a winter hike or cross-country ski trip. A fisher’s foot has 5 digits. The palm pad of the front foot is C-shaped, curving away from the toes. The heel pad sometimes shows in the track impression of the front foot. Claw marks are visible. Fishers hunt by zig-zagging through areas of thick, regenerating forest vegetation. Fisher tracks can look different depending on substrate conditions. The track pattern above illustrates the fisher’s 2-2 running pattern; it exaggerates the size of the tracks because there are actually 4 prints – 2 hind tracks overlapped over 2 front tracks.
We are pleased to welcome Paul back with a presentation that focuses on the fisher cat in Connecticut. He will present an overview of the fisher habitat, diet, behavior, reproduction, and current research efforts. Paul Colburn is a 2015 graduate of the Master Wildlife Conservationist Program and a certified Master Wildlife Conservationist.This program is sponsored by the Friends of the Lyme Library and the Lyme Land Trust.
This program is free and open to all. You will need to register via email at

Kirtan with Andrew and Jamie

Thursday, Dec. 3, 2020, 7:00 pm

Misc. Events

Shoreline Center for Wholistic Health , 35 Boston Street, Guilford, CT , 06437

Join Andrew and Jamie in celebrating the divine within. Kirtan is an ancient tradition of call-and-response chanting, which uses the musical repetition of sacred sounds, known as mantras, to still the mind and awaken the spirit. Together we will explore the beauty of devotion -- to ourselves, to each other, to the divine. If you've tried quiet sitting meditation but found it difficult or uncomfortable, kirtan may be just the remedy for you! By repeating the mantras together in a communal setting we are able to achieve the same peace and clarity that all other mindfulness practices offer, but in a less structured, more joyous way.
