“Challenges Our Very Notion of a Work of Art”

WestportNow.com Image
Westport Arts Center Gallery Coordinator (and WestportNow contributing photographer) Emily Hamilton Laux (l), along with Saul Ostrow, curator, and Nancy Heller, the center’s co-director of development, welcome a large turnout at tonight’s opening reception of the “Color in 3D” exhibit. Tom O’Connor, a Westport art historian and member of the center’s visual arts committee, said “Color in 3D” is a “provocative and exuberant exhibition of contemporary sculptors who challenge the very definition of sculpture with works that blur the boundaries between painting, drawing, sculpture, installation and performance.” He added: “In fact, the exhibition challenges our very notion of what constitutes a work of art.” (CLICK TO ENLARGE) Dave Matlow for WestportNow.com

Advisory Fuels Speculation Freedman Won’t Run Again

State Sen. Judith Freedman of Westport has called a news conference for Monday amid speculation that the veteran Republican legislator will announce she will not seek re-election in the district she has represented for 22 years.WestportNow.com Image

No reason was given in the advisory to media for the 10 a.m. event at Wilton Town Hall. But local Republican Party officials said they expected Freedman will announce she is not seeking re-election and that she is endorsing state Rep. Toni Boucher of Wilton as her successor in the 26th District. In addition to Westport, the district covers Bethel, New Canaan, Redding, Ridgefield, Weston, and Wilton.

Westporter John Hartwell , who is seeking the Democratic nomination in the district, said last week that he had raised $16,935 to date, exceeding the $15,000 goal needed to qualify for public financing under Connecticut’s new Citizen Election Program.

“The tremendous outpouring of local support from the seven towns in this district demonstrates the interest in bringing new ideas and hardworking candidates to the State Senate,” Hartwell said in announcing he had achieved his financing goal.
