For many years the Torrington resident has hiked its banks, fished its cold water and contemplated its place within its beautiful natural surroundings. But now he is worried that the river, like much of our natural environment, is challenged and endangered.

Four of her enormous, dreamy paintings — one is 12 feet by 18 feet — of the interiors of New York City subway cars, peopled by denizens of the metropolis in their varied nationalities, colors and shapes, are now on exhibit at Torrington’s Five Points Gallery.

Bright Works, From History To Whimsy

Art

Ken Musselman grew up in Cleveland, Ohio. Well, a suburb west of Cleveland, Ohio, called Brooklyn. Yes. There is another Brooklyn out there.
“It was a real ‘Leave It To Beaver’ neighborhood,” the painter tells me. It had tiny clapboard Capes, lawn wars, picket fences, stay-at-home moms and milk chutes (a small door in every house where milkmen, egg men and newspaper delivery kids left their goods).

His Best Work Is Still To Come

There are two artistic sides to Harper Blanchet, a Sharon native who lives and works at Twilight Studios and the Blue Star Gallery in Falls Village.
On one hand, he’s an abstract painter. He refers to his large canvases, which are full of lines, bars and boxes, as “sky paintings.” Through his strong use of color, you can catch glimpses in some of the pieces of the numerous sunsets he’s watched in Millerton on Sunset Ridge and Winchell Mountain.

Capturing A Full Career

Art: ‘Marking the Moment: The Art of Allen Blagden’

Artist Allen Blagden refers to the current exhibit of his work at The Hyde Collection in Glens Falls, N.Y., as “the best show I’ve had in my life.”
That’s saying a lot, since the Lakeville resident has enjoyed a long and impressive career. He was born into an artistic family; he began his training when he was 10 years old under his father’s direction at The Hotchkiss School.

Route 22, Seen Through the Lens

Photography

Lisa Paris was at the regular Saturday morning peace vigil in Salisbury on Feb. 18 with Franco, her little mutt from Puerto Rico. Marjorie Reid was there, bearing her beautifully lettered sign that stated, “Resist.” Judith Gott in her pink hat held up two-fingered peace signs as cars honked by. 
Rick Schatzberg was there too, documenting it all with his cameras. It’s a personal project, he explains when asked. It’s his work.

Powerful Works From Two Countries

Art: ‘Germans and Russians’ at Ober Gallery

Rob Ober calls the current show at his eponymous Kent gallery “Germans and Russians,” an innocuous title for a small, powerful show that reveals much about the psyche of both countries.
First up are eight watercolors by Markus Vater, born in Dusseldorf but now living in London. Only 47, Vater works across many mediums, but his work tends toward primitivist, expressionist surprise.
