    - In 2016 Clay Art Center is curating IN OUR BACKYARD, a year-long focus on the medium of clay and particularly upon those artists who have gravitated to the New York metropolitan area and identify themselves as regionally-based ceramic artists. Along with 3 curated invitational exhibitions, Clay Art Center will host TRISTATE OF MIND, a regional juried exhibition from January 30 through March 19, 2016. TRISTATE OF MIND, juried by gallerist and curator Leslie Ferrin, will gather a contemporary cross-section of emerging artists within a 75 mile radius of Clay Art Center’s facility in Port Chester, NY. The focus of this show is to visually represent the culture, trends, and theories surrounding clay practice in the region. The culminating exhibit will showcase a breadth of work ranging from academic, alternative, traditional, and post-industrial objects; functional, installation, and sculptural work will be represented. Artists who apply to this exhibit or participate in other 2016 exhibitions will be asked to complete a short survey as to why they work in the New York area and where they see the field going. Clay Art Center envisions a multi-catalog project archiving the 2016 gallery year focused in regional works. TRISTATE OF MIND will be included in the collection of catalogs.

  • | 9:00am - 3:00pm | Arts and Entertainment, Gallery, Priou, Exhibition, Les Beaux Arts
    - Les Beaux Arts Gallery is opening the fall season with an exhibit of exceptional drawings by Greenwich artist, Fereshteh Priou, master of lines and forms. The show, “Keeping in Line,” will open on Sunday, September 6 and run through October 15.

    Priou limits subject matter to the human body expressing the purity of its soul through the simplification of line. Her style stems from the idea that, amongst the clamor of everyday existence, one can regain harmony by reducing life to the essence of tranquility. Line is a fundamental foundation of rendering forms and compositions, stripped of ornamentation, reducing the subject matter to its pure essence. For Priou, line is an adept strategy engendering lyrical works and leaving much for the imagination to enjoy. 

    Les Beaux Arts Gallery is located at 395 Round Hill Road, Greenwich, in the Round Hill Community Church. Gallery hours are Sunday, 11 a.m. to noon; Monday thru Friday, 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.; closed Saturday. The Gallery will also be closed on Monday, September 7 in observance of Labor Day. “Keeping in Line” will be exhibited September 6 thru October 15.

TRISTATE OF MIND, juried by gallerist and curator Leslie Ferrin, will gather a contemporary cross-section of emerging artists within a 75 mile radius of Clay Art Center’s facility in Port Chester, NY. The focus of this show is to visually represent the culture, trends, and theories surrounding clay practice in the region. The culminating exhibit will showcase a breadth of work ranging from academic, alternative, traditional, and post-industrial objects; functional, installation, and sculptural work will be represented. Artists who apply to this exhibit or participate in other 2016 exhibitions will be asked to complete a short survey as to why they work in the New York area and where they see the field going. Clay Art Center envisions a multi-catalog project archiving the 2016 gallery year focused in regional works. TRISTATE OF MIND will be included in the collection of catalogs.

    - Les Beaux Arts Gallery is opening the fall season with an exhibit of exceptional drawings by Greenwich artist, Fereshteh Priou, master of lines and forms. The show, “Keeping in Line,” will open on Sunday, September 6 and run through October 15.

    Priou limits subject matter to the human body expressing the purity of its soul through the simplification of line. Her style stems from the idea that, amongst the clamor of everyday existence, one can regain harmony by reducing life to the essence of tranquility. Line is a fundamental foundation of rendering forms and compositions, stripped of ornamentation, reducing the subject matter to its pure essence. For Priou, line is an adept strategy engendering lyrical works and leaving much for the imagination to enjoy. 

    Les Beaux Arts Gallery is located at 395 Round Hill Road, Greenwich, in the Round Hill Community Church. Gallery hours are Sunday, 11 a.m. to noon; Monday thru Friday, 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.; closed Saturday. The Gallery will also be closed on Monday, September 7 in observance of Labor Day. “Keeping in Line” will be exhibited September 6 thru October 15.

    - NEW CANAAN, CT –  Sorelle Gallery is thrilled to kick-start it’s stellar 2015-2016 show season with VEIWPOINT: Works by Ronald Tinney and Jeanna Shepard. The exhibition will be displayed at Sorelle’s New Canaan location from September 10th – October 20th. Please join the artists for an opening reception featuring live music and an artist talk on Thursday, September 10th from 5:00 – 8:00pm. Beginning at 6:30, Tinney and Shepard will discuss their creative process, influences, and artistic experiences.
    Savor a glass of wine and get to know the artists you love while enjoying a performance by Sorelle’s September Feature Musician, classical guitarist Christopher Sullivan.

    Ronald Tinney’s widely collected and admired coastal landscapes of Cape Cod breathe constant life into the wonder and serenity of the ocean. Born in Pottstown, Pennsylvania, Tinney now lives year-round on the Cape. With his supreme talent and unmatched eye for capturing changing light and flickering waves, each of Tinney's paintings is a relaxing world of breeze and sun. A lone sailboat on a clear day, a quiet, twilight marsh... Tinney's works encapsulate the best of Cape Cod's natural scenes.

    Jeanna Shepard is a resident of New Canaan, Connecticut, and Oak Bluffs, Massachusetts. A revered photographer and former Conde Nast editorial production manager, Shepard now free-lances for the Fairfield County Hearst Newspapers as well as the Vineyard Gazette on Martha's Vineyard. She adores photojournalism, and it was through Martha's Vineyard treks to various projects, as well as visiting homes and gardens in Fairfield County, that she embraced landscape photography. She enjoys ‘abstracting the obvious’ allowing the viewer to attach stories and connections to her images. ‘Everyday’ scenes (undulating water, a patterned drain, bamboo leaves) shimmer with Shepard’s fresh innovation.

  • - On September 10 from 6:30 to 8:00 pm, Westporter Penny Pearlman, author of the triple award winning Pretty Smart: Lessons from our Miss Americas, will talk about the history of the Miss America Pageant, the controversies surrounding the pageant and why Miss America is still iconic in American culture. Sharalyn Donlan, Miss Connecticut 2009, and Morgan Amarone, Miss Connecticut 2011, will share their experiences in participating in the Miss America pageant.

    The Miss America Pageant, started in 1921 by Atlantic City businessmen as a marketing ploy, has evolved from just a beauty contest into one that strives to provide young women with opportunities to stretch themselves in numerous directions. Many people don’t see beyond the swimsuit competition. They think you can’t be beautiful and smart. This complicated mix of beauty and brains has always been a contradiction in American Society which often dismisses the possibility of being both.

    Contrary to popular opinion, The Miss America Organization had a liberal feminist agenda long before Betty Freidan wrote the Feminine Mystique in 1963, promoting higher education for women by providing scholarships starting in 1945 and opportunities for young women to advance their careers. It takes guts, creativity, endurance, lots of plain hard work and a fire in the belly to achieve that pinnacle of femaleness. Learn about the history of the Miss America Pageant and why Miss America is still America’s royalty and relevant in today’s world.

    Sponsors for this event are: Berchem, Moses & Devlin PC , Sachs Walsh Insurance and Catamount Wealth Management.

  • | All Day | 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

  • | All Day | NATL - National Holidays
    - The impetus for a National Grandparents Day originated with Marian McQuade, a housewife in Fayette County, West Virginia. Her primary motivation was to champion the cause of lonely elderly in nursing homes. She also hoped to persuade grandchildren to tap the wisdom and heritage their grandparents could provide. President Jimmy Carter, in 1978, proclaimed that National Grandparents Day would be celebrated every year on the first Sunday after Labor Day.

    - In 2016 Clay Art Center is curating IN OUR BACKYARD, a year-long focus on the medium of clay and particularly upon those artists who have gravitated to the New York metropolitan area and identify themselves as regionally-based ceramic artists. Along with 3 curated invitational exhibitions, Clay Art Center will host TRISTATE OF MIND, a regional juried exhibition from January 30 through March 19, 2016. TRISTATE OF MIND, juried by gallerist and curator Leslie Ferrin, will gather a contemporary cross-section of emerging artists within a 75 mile radius of Clay Art Center’s facility in Port Chester, NY. The focus of this show is to visually represent the culture, trends, and theories surrounding clay practice in the region. The culminating exhibit will showcase a breadth of work ranging from academic, alternative, traditional, and post-industrial objects; functional, installation, and sculptural work will be represented. Artists who apply to this exhibit or participate in other 2016 exhibitions will be asked to complete a short survey as to why they work in the New York area and where they see the field going. Clay Art Center envisions a multi-catalog project archiving the 2016 gallery year focused in regional works. TRISTATE OF MIND will be included in the collection of catalogs.
