Issue #2 (11 October 2011)

It was wonderful to see everyone at ArtCafé this week! I would like to extend a thank you to the Westport Public Schools Art Teachers who joined us for their staff development day! And also a special thank you to David Kennedy and the Westport Country Playhouse for co-presenting "Love Night" with us! David presented with two actors, selecting five scenes from Twelfth Night, thoughtfully marrying Shakespeare to LOVE exhibition artwork. Witnessing the fusion of the visual and performing arts was truly inspiring.

Please join us every Friday from 9:30 - 10:30 am for coffee, homemade muffins, and stimulating discussion on all the happenings in the art world!

Best Wishes,

Shakespeare, Sonnet 130:
My mistress' eyes are nothing like the sun;
Coral is far more red than her lips' red;
If snow be white, why then her breasts are dun; 
If hairs be wires, black wires grow on her head.
I have seen roses damask'd, red and white,
But no such roses see I in her cheeks;
And in some perfumes is there more delight
Than in the breath that from my mistress reeks.
I love to hear her speak, yet well I know
That music hath a far more pleasing sound;
I grant I never saw a goddess go;
My mistress, when she walks, treads on the ground;
And yet, by heaven, I think my love as rare
As any she belied with false compare.  

In partnership with Save the Children

What do you love about yourself? 
 "I love my eyes. I have friends who do not see and I am so grateful I can see."
- Prince, age 12
