  • | 12:00pm - 4:00pm | Arts and Entertainment, multimedia exhibit with photographs,
    - A new multimedia exhibit with photographs, costumes, artifacts, and music will explore the fascinating and tumultuous decade of the 1960s. Demolish or Preserve: The 1960s at the Lockwood-Mathews Mansion, curated by Kathleen Motes Bennewitz will open on May 4, 2016 and run through Nov. 20, 2016. Opening Reception: May 12, 2016, 5:30-7:30 p.m. – $10 for non-members $5 for members.

    It is impossible to remember the 1960s without thinking of Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin landing on the moon, the Beatles arriving in the United States, the Civil Rights Movement, the Vietnam War and—most hauntingly—the assassinations of John F. Kennedy and Martin Luther King. Against this backdrop of turbulent cultural change and social unrest, was the nation’s modern urban planning, which included the demolition of historic neighborhoods and irreplaceable buildings.

    This exhibition will explore the fascinating and ground-breaking decade of the 1960s and the Mansion’s connections to the revolutionary preservation battles and new landmark statutes of the era. It will also honor the museum’s 50th Anniversary as it celebrates the bands of locals, led by the Junior League of Stamford-Norwalk, Inc. and the Common Interest Group, who fought to save the Mansion and secure its status as a National Historic Landmark in 1971.

    With Europe’s ongoing legacy of artistic and historic preservation and reuse as a model, in the 1960s concerned citizens brought national attention to the need for saving from demolition historically and architecturally significant structures in America. Jackie Kennedy, using her stature and influence, restored the White House’s historic interiors; and just as the grand mansions of Fifth Avenue and Newport were slated for demolition, here in Norwalk LeGrand Lockwood’s Civil War era palatial residence was faced with a similar fate. Recognizing that the demolition of this structure would be a great loss to the city, state, and nation, concerned citizens galvanized to save the mansion in one the most important and hard fought preservation battles in Connecticut’s history.

    The Museum’s 2016 cultural and educational programs are made possible in part by generous funding from LMMM’s Founding Patrons: The Estate of Mrs. Cynthia Clark Brown, and the Museum’s Distinguished Benefactors: Klaffs, The Xerox Foundation, and The Maurice Goodman Foundation.

    General Admission: Wed-Sun, 12-4 p.m., $10 for adults, $8 for seniors, $6, 8-18. The Lockwood-Mathews Mansion Museum is a National Historic Landmark.

    FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

    CHJ OPEN HOUSE BRUNCH AND FIRST DAY OF SUNDAY SCHOOL FEATURES
    ADULT ED PROGRAM ON Dorothy Parker

    Bagels and Lox and good company are part of the allure of the Congregation for Humanistic Judaism’s annual Open House brunch and first day of Sunday School. The back-from-summer event on September 11 at Bedford Middle School, 88 North Avenue, Westport, features an introduction to the people, school, and adult education programs of the Congregation. The public is invited free of charge.
    “This is a great opportunity to learn about the Congregation, Humanistic Judaism, our Sunday School and adult education programs,” says Rachel Albanese of Wilton, chair of membership. “Guests will feel welcome in our community.” She will be on hand to talk to new and prospective members. Lisa Sullivan, a Norwalk resident and former Sunday School committee member, and her daughter, Elise, are long-time members who discovered CHJ through the Open House.
    Dana Preis of Easton, a past-president of CHJ, hopes those seeking a Jewish community will "come and check us out. Our approach is refreshing. CHJ's focus on humanistic values and appreciation for Jewish culture makes us an important and welcoming presence in the community."
    Sunday School begins promptly at 9:30 am. All children are invited to attend their age- appropriate class at no charge. Parents may remain with their children until they are comfortable.
    Adult Ed will present a slideshow talk by David Shafer about the life of Dorothy Parker (maiden name was Rothschild, 1893-1967 ) Parker was famous in the 1930s for play reviews, short poetry, and general wittiness She was a model of a humanist who strove for social justice, and for her efforts was blacklisted in Hollywood and forced to appear before Joe McCarthy. The program will be followed by a presentation of her very short two-person funny play, Here We Are.
    The CHJ Sunday School provides a contemporary Jewish education for children in kindergarten through Bar/Bat Mitzvah. Children learn about Jewish holidays, history, literature, and traditions of the Jewish people in a warm, participatory environment. Hebrew, music, art, dance, and crafts enrich the curriculum. Jewish and Humanistic values and their relation to interpersonal, social and environmental issues are explored in all areas of the curriculum. Small class size fosters involvement and learning.
    In addition to Sunday School, the Congregation has a full calendar of activities for adults including Jewish holiday celebrations, a wide array of weekend evening and Sunday morning programs, discussion groups, and a book group. Members hail from almost every town in Fairfield County.
    Jewish and Interfaith families interested in learning about the Congregation are invited to attend this Open House. Programs conclude at 11:45 AM. For additional information, and to let the Congregation know to expect you, please call (203) 293-8867 or email info@humanisticjews.org.

  • | NATL - National Holidays
    - Patriot Day falls on 11th September (also commonly known as ‘Nine-Eleven’) and is remembered globally as the anniversary of the catastrophic terrorist attacks on the USA of 11th September 2001.

    Embedded in the memories of everyone who lived through it, this was the day four jet planes were hijacked and crashed into the New York World Trade Center and the Pentagon in Arlington, Virginia, causing the deaths of 2,977 people. The fourth plane (United Airlines Flight 93) was directed at Washington DC, but its passengers bravely attempted to take back control and it crashed into a field near Shanksville, Pennsylvania.

    The large majority of those lost after the attacks on the Twin Towers were working at or above the points of collision; thousands of people who had gone to work that morning like every other day, found themselves suddenly stranded at the top of a burning skyscraper. A number made the choice to jump from the flaming buildings rather than wait to be caught by the flames or for the building to collapse. No one could forget the terrifying and heartbreaking stories and images captured by the news footage of the day.

    In the wake of the World Trade Center collisions, many brave men and women from the emergency services risked their lives to try to help rescue victims of the attacks, and of them 411 lost their own lives attempting to fight fires and rescue people.

    Patriot Day is recognized by US law as the official day of remembrance for these tragic events, and has been observed every year since. Each year on this day, American flags are flown at half-staff to honour and commemorate those lives lost. The US President asks fellow Americans to observe a moment of silence at 8.46am (Eastern Daylight Time), the time of the first plane collision into the North Tower of the World Trade Center.

    While the events took place within the USA, the shock and grief experienced in response to the attacks was shared across the globe, and for this reason Patriot Day will be observed not only in America, but all over the world

The concert, with organ or piano accompaniment, will take plac at the Chapel at Maryknoll in Ossining, NY.

    The second concert program of the season, entitled Requiem, will be presented on Friday, June 2 and Sunday, June 4, 2017. It features Mozart’s Requiem (with full orchestra and soloists), along with a collection of pieces that illustrate the different ways in which composers have used the music to express the emotions associated with death, loss and mourning - each in their own unique way. The additional works include Henry Purcell’s Funeral Music for Queen Mary, along with other pieces by Johannes Brahms, Antonio Lotti, and American-born William Schuman, as well as a selection of Negro Spirituals. The concert will be performed in the wonderful acoustics of the church of St. John the Evangelist in White Plains, NY.

    Maestro Ira Spaulding, the Chorale’s Music Director, is a choral conductor, singer and choral master class instructor whose career spans 36 years of performance in more than 60 countries. He is currently Professor of Vocal and Choral Music at City College of New York and maintains a career abroad as a singer and conductor. The chorus’ Accompanist/Assistant Music Director, David Baranowski, is a household name to choral singers in the Westchester area due to his virtuosity on piano, keyboard, organ and harpsichord.

    - NEW CANAAN, CT – Sorelle Gallery is excited to announce its first show of the fall season entitled "ART NOIR: Works by Stephen Ciuccoli and Mary Jo McGonagle”, featuring a designer vignette by Keri McKay interiors; on display at Sorelle’s New Canaan location from September 15th – October 17th. An opening reception will be held Thursday, September 15th from 5:00 to 8:00pm.

    Within recognized local artist Mary Jo McGonagle’s layered paintings are witty contemporary phrases representing unspoken thoughts we all share. In Decisions, Decisions… the expression “Yes, no, maybe so” is densely stamped in blue, brown, pink and white. The colors and words converge, amplifying the uneasiness of the phrase while creating a beautiful composition. In The Word Slinger, white, blue, red and gold letters pose the question: “Why are you still talking?” The artist intentionally uses larger text in the final layers of the piece to ‘drown out’ the noise. Again, the result is a stunning, abstract artwork. It is not until a second glance that the words materialize. Essentially, the ‘thoughts’ become ‘afterthoughts’. McGonagle states, “ My art reflects my fascination how our relationships take place in our everyday life, hovering between humor and desperation.”

    Stephen Ciuccoli is an internationally published advertising and fashion photographer working in the New York Metro area. In ART NOIR, he will display a collection of his independent, fine art photography for the first time. Ciuccoli says photography ‘is a way of making sense out of what I see and feel… Inspired by constantly looking at scenes and images, I am more picture-maker than picture-taker at heart.” This ‘picture-maker’ instinct is evident in his Dried Tarot series. Photographed close-up against a clean white background, the cocoa-brown, textured tarot leaves shimmer like bronze statues in the sun. In Haiku #42, striking domed architecture envelopes a wiry, empty chair. Ciuccoli’s title is appropriate. His photographs document a poetic, compelling view of common places.

    NATURALLY LUXE: A DESIGNER VIGNETTE BY KERI MCKAY INTERIORS
