Harwinton Historical Society To Sponsor Program on Reconstruction Following the Civil War at The Harwinton Library

09/14/2014 to 09/21/2914

80 Bentley Dr,, Harwinton, CT Phone: 860-485-9113.

Although the Union proved victorious in the American Civil War, the fruits of that victory were still in doubt. The era of Reconstruction (1865-1877) was the crucial completion of that conflict. Fundamentally, it would determine the future of the United States by attempting to resolve two dilemmas: how to admit the defeated southern states back into the Union and how to prepare 4 million ex-slaves for equality and citizenship. Dr. Karl Valois, Professor of History at the Torrington branch of the University of Connecticut will lead the discussions of these topics at the Harwinton Library on two consecutive Sundays: September 14 and 21, 2014 from 2:00 PM to 4:15 PM. All are invited. There is no fee or prior attendance requirement although donations are always gratefully received. We hope to see you there!

Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum New Exhibitions March 5- Sept. 4

03/05/2017 to 09/04/2017

258 Main St, Ridgefield, CT

The four new solo exhibitions at The Aldrich are by artists who bring critical examination to their creative practice and a range of approaches to art making that includes research, recording personal histories, and both formal and abstract gestures: Beth Campbell's sculptures and drawings reflect on the paths taken—and not taken—in the artist's day-to-day life; Suzanne McClelland's practice spans paintings, installations, glass, ceramic, works on paper, prints and ephemera, capturing the eruptive and disparate voices of a shifting American vernacular and its rippling effect on the way we communicate in our complicated time;William Powhida's drawings, paintings, sculptures and video interrogate and challenge the socioeconomics of the art world; and Kay Rosen's text-based gouaches and wall drawings use composition, humor, and linguistics to reveal meaning that can be found in the actual structure of language. In their respective exhibitions at The Aldrich, Campbell, McClelland, Powhida, and Rosen all hold a mirror to reflect diverse subjects that are ever present and very real in the world, but usually overlooked. Sun. noon - 5 pm, Mon. - Sat. 10 am - 5 pm.
