Spoon Carving Workshop Using White Memorial Ash with Andy Dobos @ White Memorial Museum | Litchfield | Connecticut | United States

April 20, 2019

Trees have been used by people to make useful and beautiful objects as far back as we can imagine. Spend a few hours learning to transform pieces of white ash from White Memorials landscape into a spoon or ladle (or both if you’re a quick study). Instruction will include how to use tools such as knives, chisels, hatchets and saws safely and effectively. This is a great introduction to woodcarving of any kind.

If you have them, bring a carving knife, drawknife, spokeshave, wood saw and/or sharp hatchet. Andy will have tools to share if needed. 10:00 a.m. Meet in the Activity Shed (next to the Museum). Limited to 10 participants. Pre-registration and pre-payment are required. Call 869-567-0857 or register online.  Members: $25.00, Non-members: $50.00

Art Show Opening and Reception: Nature Through the Eyes of Rebecca Melaragno @ A.B. Ceder Room | Litchfield | Connecticut | United States

Saturday, April 20, 2019

The beautifully dramatic chalk pastel animal images of Rebecca Melaragno will grace the walls of the A. B. Ceder Room through June 30.

About the Artist: “Art is something I have always had an interest in and wanted to develop at a deeper level. I love the fact that art and design in itself cannot be defined; it is what and how you see something, what you feel, how things are organized, communicated, and experienced. It is both interpretation and delivering a clear message, and can take the form of countless mediums. I have lately been focusing on drawings, specifically with chalk pastel and using a digital platform. A lot of my subject matter comes from inspiration around me, and the comparison between human relationships and personalities as compared to that of animals. Analyzing different personality types and seeing how they compare to that of predator and prey relationships in nature. Designing my drawings allows me to intertwine meaning and relationships between the subject matters. In addition to being an artist and graphic designer, I work as an art teacher sharing my love and knowledge of art with our next generation.” 5:00 – 7:00 p.m., A. B. Ceder Room. The reception is free but please register by calling 860-567-0857 or register online.
