Staples Alumn Returns to Exhibit at CraftWestport

WestportNow.com Image
The Westport Young Women’s League presented CraftWestport at Staples High School this weekend. Formerly known as the Westport Creative Arts Festival, the show not only had a new name, but an updated, more contemporary look as well. The show featured 150 artists, including 100 who had never before exhibited in Westport. Among the exhibitors was designer Megan Brogden who grew up in Westport and graduated from Staples. Owner of Wilton’s Megan Brogden Studio, she has been designing, creating, and exhibiting her richly colored jewel-toned pieces of “wearable art” for many years. (CLICK TO ENLARGE) Lynn U.

A Special Lark

Among exhibitors at CraftWestport at Staples High School this weekend was Lark Elizabeth Roderigues, a jeweler and potter from Portsmouth, R.I. A popular crowd pleaser with a very large and devoted following in Westport, where she has exhibited since 1986, she took the time today to make some adjustments to a customer’s newly purchased necklace. She was assisted in her booth by her mother, Barbara Roderigues. (CLICK TO ENLARGE) Lynn U. Miller for WestportNow.com

UPDATE The Staples High School boys soccer team today shut out New Milford 4-0 to win its 12th state championship and first since 1993.

Midfielder Brendan Lesch, who scored two goals, was named most valuable player.

The match was played before a large crowd—including many Staples soccer alumni—under sunny skies in 55-degree weather at Ridgefield High School’s Tiger Hollow complex.

The soccer win came on the heels of the Wrecker football team winning the FCIAC crown 14-10 against Bridgeport Central Friday night at Trumbull.

Going into the match, the Wreckers were ranked No. 5 in the LL tournament while New Milford was No. 6.

The match, which Staples dominated from the start, avenged last year’s championship loss to Glastonbury 2-1.
