More About WWC Art Show April 28-29 to celebrate local talent, raise scholarship funds

On Saturday evening April 28 and Sunday afternoon, April 29 only, the popular Westport Woman’s Club’s Art Show, curated by Miggs Burroughs, opens to the public. Singer Melissa Newman will perform at Saturday’s opening reception. Chair Jo Fuchs Luscombe notes this year’s Art Show honors late artist Bobbie Friedman, wife of Drew Friedman. This annual show, featuring local artists, seeks to generate sales for them and funds for need-based college scholarships for Staples High School seniors.

2018 artists, whose works will be available for purchase, include Jen Greely, Bernie Perry, Nancy Moore, Roseann Spengler, Leonor Dao Turut, Kerry Heftman, Sam Abelow, Sue Benton, Jo Titsworth, Dale Najarian, Carlos Davilla, Holly Hawthorne, Noah Steinman, and Karen Ford. Art by Honoree Bobbie Friedman will be available for viewing, not purchase.

Admission to the Westport Woman’s Club Art Show at 44 Imperial Ave. is free and open to the public. Thirty percent of sales will benefit need-based scholarships for Staples seniors, including new Westport Woman’s Club-administered scholarships, funded by The Drew Friedman Community Arts Center, Inc., benefitting Staples seniors who have financial need and an interest in pursuing studies in the visual arts.

The WWC Art Show’s hours are limited to: Saturday, April 28, 5 to 8 pm (Opening Reception) and Sunday, April 29, 2018, 12 to 4 pm. The Westport Woman’s Club is located at 44 Imperial Avenue, Westport. Cash, checks and credit cards are accepted for purchases or donations.

Melissa Newman, accompanied by guitarist Tony Lombardozzi, will lend her voice on Saturday, singing jazz standards and songs from the Great American Songbook, to promote local art purchases and scholarships.

Sponsors include The Drew Friedman Community Arts Center, Inc., Bill Harris, Jr., Jeannette & Mike Tewey, Vivian Rosenberg, the Gault Family Foundation, Linda & Vincent Debo, Janette & Stan Duchnicki and Castle Wine & Spirits.
