Meet the Artist 6-9 pm
Objects will always hold memories... memories of time, place, sometimes recent events, and they are almost always personal. I have been an historian and a documenter of both real events and imagined myths for most of my life. Using found and saved pieces of my world, I recreate stories that surround these discarded and sometimes unwanted pieces of our lives.
Each work tells part of my story, and also allows the viewer to find their own story when observing my work.
Fridays 6-9 pm, Saturdays and Sundays 11-4 pm

September 18, 3:00-5:00 p.m.
with Phil Benevento
Nearly 25 years ago, Waterbury’s City Historian, Phil Benevento, presented a two part slide show about the history of Waterbury at the museum. This is a reprisal of those presentations which focused on Waterbury’s golden age from 1880 to 1920. History, colorful stories, streetscapes, industry, recreation, religion, education all get a nod as we take a virtual walk around the city through rare photos and colorful postcards from the turn of the last century. This presentation, like the one 25 years ago, will be shown in two parts 90 minutes in length. A reception with light food and beverages is scheduled immediately following each program.

One distinguishing quality that sets human beings apart is our curiosity beyond ourselves. “Concerning the Spiritual” asks the artist to interpret this mystery in their artwork. Welcoming all-media and all viewpoints, the exhibition explores the wonders we all seek beyond the corporeal & tangible.

While true ‘self portraits’ are perfectly acceptable, works are not required to be literal self-images, but may instead be metaphorical, allegorical, autobiographical, virtual, etc. In short, this theme is very open to interpretation and any and all visual arts media.
