Issue #6 (14 January 2012)

Happy Holidays from the ArtCafé! This week featured HOT muffins and HOT tips from the art world, with the gift of a Christmas Stollen, a typical Dresden custom, from Henry Arnhold, whose Meissen porcelain collection opened in the new portico at the Frick Museum.

ArtCafé will resume on Friday, January 13th at 9:30am. Please join us later that night at 7pm for an evening of wine, discussion, and film screening of "The Public Eye," presented by Weegee expert, Miles Barth. Thank you for the support and insight that the ArtCafé "family" has brought to Friday mornings at the Westport Arts Center. Wishing you Happy Holidays and a Happy and healthy New Year!
