Entries will reflect the artists’ unique view of what beauty is. Since beauty is in the eye of the beholder, this should prove to be an interesting show. Works will be selected through a jury process. The show will run from October 1-31 with an opening reception Friday October 3 from 5-7:30 pm.

We are pleased to announce Carol Dunn as our guest juror. Carol is an award-winning printmaker, photographer and mixed media artist.

MAAd Men of Mystic

Art Exhibits/Openings
MAAd Men of Mystic; Mystic Arts Center, 9 Water Street, Mystic, , 06355

MAAd Men of Mystic is an upcoming exhibition featuring three artists; John Gregoropoulos, Anthony Terenzio, and Paul Zelanski, whose abstract art, while gaining national and international recognition, was also exhibited at MAC and in the region during the 1950’s and 60’s. In an era when MAC was known as the Mystic Art Association, abstract art began to appear in galleries, much to the consternation of those who believed art should represent something tangible. Their styles and approaches to creating art and subject matter varied greatly, and though their work may appear tame in this day and age, back then they were considered MAAd Men.
To celebrate the abstract movement and the spirit of the time, we welcome you to dress the part in 50's, 60's, or 70's style at the opening reception on Thursday, October 2, from 5:30pm – 7:30pm. The shows open September 26th and run through November 8th.

Card Tournament to Benefit Children of Nicaragua

Community
, , ,

There will be a Set-Back/Pitch Tournament on Saturday, November 8th, at a private home in North Franklin, CT, to benefit the children of Nicaragua, sponsored by the Friends of Kilambe, a local non-profit organization dedicated to bringing medical help and clean water to impoverished families in Nicaragua.

Since its inception in 2007, the Friends of Kilambe has raised over $70,000, and has built a new clinic powered by hydroelectricity as well as a new school. Because clean water is critical to good health, they have begun a program of bringing inexpensive, American-made water purification systems to as many homes as possible. For a cost of less than $50 per household, families gain easy-to-clean water filters that remove bacteria and larvae, transforming water into a source of life rather than the common cause of disease. The organization’s efforts are practical and change lives for the better.

Nicaragua is located in Central America and is the second-poorest country in the Western Hemisphere. Half of its six million residents are poor. Kilambe is a small, impoverished region in the mountains of north-central Nicaragua. It consists of seven communities and about 10,000 people.

The Card Tournament is the latest fund-raising effort by the small, local group, who wanted to have a fun event to increase awareness of their activities focused on helping the children and their families of this poor country.

The Tournament begins at 6pm with cocktails, registration and lessons on how to play. Included in the event will be 8 rounds of cards, game prizes, a silent auction, food and beverages, at a cost of $35 per person. Plan to come with friends and family to have an enjoyable evening to benefit a good cause. RSVP to Tricia at triciamar77@gmail.com.

Science Book Discussion

Education/Lectures
Waterford Public Library, 49 Rope Ferry Road, Waterford, CT , 06385

The Emperor of all Maladies by Siddhartha Mukherjee (2011).
Dr. Richard Hellman, an oncologist and the medical director of the new L&M Cancer Center in Waterford will lead a discussion of this "biography" of cancer - from its first documented appearances thousands of years ago through the epic battles in the 20th century to cure, control, and conquer it, to a radical new understanding of its essence. This fascinating and compelling book is written with a cellular biologist's precision, a historian's perspective, and a biographer's passion. The result is an astonishingly lucid and eloquent chronicle of a disease humans have lived with—and perished from—for more than five thousand years. Multiple copies of the book are available prior to the discussion date.
