Issue #31 (27 September 2014)

The Fall art season is in full swing!

Stop in the Arts Center Gallery and see Edward Burtynsky: Nature Speaks, which features 15 large-scale color photographs depicting disturbingly beautiful images of the landscape in various degrees of disarray, from capturing nickel tailings in Ontario to photographing disintegrating shipbreaks in Bangladesh. Burtynsky carefully composes each image to capture “how nature itself, over time, can reclaim even the most ambitious of human incursions into the land.” This exhibition is on loan courtesy of the Hall Collection and is sponsored by Hall Art Foundation.

In addition, visit our Project Space Gallery for Farm to Table Cycle: A Journey for Change, sponsored by Michel Nischan's Wholesome Wave. This exhibition depicts photographer and adventurer, Glenn Charles' 400 mile solo bicycle journey from Connecticut to Maine.

There is much happening at the Westport Arts Center this season and we hope that you may join us for an event or two…or three! Participate in our LunchCafe series or sign up for In Conversation: Edward Burtynsky & Helen Clark on October 8-- this event is sure to sell out! 

Happy reading and best wishes,

Director of Visual Arts
Westport Arts Center
