Making Art in Connecticut

Last week, I heard an interview with The Gallery at Black Rock director Eileen Walsh on WPKN, 89.5 Bridgeport. It's a hard thing, talking about art on the radio, but Terry Hopper interviewed her well. Walsh is one of a coterie of dedicated folks who are pulling Bridgeport up by the bootstraps and encouraging artistic growth in the area. Glad to hear an art-related success story.

On a sad note, unfortunately, we got word that the Brookfield Craft Center has ceased operations. Director Richard Herrmann sent a press release earlier this week detailing the dire state of financial affairs at the Craft Center and expressed regret over the decision to shut the doors. The Craft Center had been in operation since 1954.

If you've got shows or events happening in the near future, please drop an email and I will post about them.
