Learning About 15th Century Art

WestportNow.com Image
For the second consecutive week, today’s Westport Arts Center ArtCafé, meeting in a private home, featured Westporter Fiona Garland, art historian. Among the works she discussed was the Adam and Eve detail from “The Ghent Altarpiece,” an early 15th century Early Flemish polyptych panel painting. They are said to be the earliest treatment in art of the human nude with Early Netherlandish naturalism. (CLICK TO ENLARGE) Helen Klisser During for WestportNow.com

Picture Perfect: Westport Postcards, Past and Present

WestportNow.com Image
In a simulation of the lenticular imagery that will be installed in the tunnel at the Metro-North Westport station this fall, Westport artist Miggs Burroughs is shown taking a photo of Ann Sheffer’s Chevy Volt in the same location as the Model T Ford depicted in a postcard of Westport from the early 1900s. Bill Scheffler and Ann Sheffer have sponsored this first of 16 images to be installed in the train tunnel. Each changing image, measuring 42 inches-by-26 inches, will depict a different iconic Westport location (without Miggs in the photos) combined with its older counterpart as captured in early postcards from the extensive collections of Gordon Joseloff and Bill Scheffler. The project was initiated by Westport Police Chief Dale Call, and is being supervised by Helen Klisser During, director of visual arts at the Westport Arts Center. The project is privately funded and anyone interested in funding a lightbox Lenticular postcard for the tunnel should contact .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address).
