And when the bride’s ex-boyfriend crashes the party, the perfect wedding starts to unravel faster than you can whistle “Here Comes the Bride!” It’s up to the sister of the bride to turn a tangled mess into happily ever after in this musical comedy for anyone whoever had parents.

by East Hartford artist Cate Bourke

Marie Louise Trichet Art Gallery
Wisdom House Retreat and Conference Center

The Marie Louise Trichet Art Gallery at Wisdom House Retreat and Conference Center will open an exhibit “Requiem for Being: An Installation” by East Hartford artist Cate Bourke on Saturday, April 21 from 3:30 pm -5:30 pm.

An artist’s lecture will take place on Saturday, June 23 at 3:30 pm and is open to the public. It will be followed by a reception.

Taking bee colony collapse disorder as a point of departure, this ceramic art installation will be a meditation on otherness, ambivalence and disconnectedness.

 

The exhibit corresponds with the creation of a Pollinator Habitat Project at Wisdom House this spring. The goal of the project is to attract and support pollinators as well as benefit the larger ecosystem.
 
Ms. Bourke holds and MFA in Visual Art from Vermont College of Fine Arts and has been an Artist in Residence at East Hartford High School as well as a teacher of pottery.  She has had solo exhibits in Vermont, New Jersey and Connecticut. Visit Cate Bourke’s website at: www.catebourke.weebly.com

An artist’s lecture will take place on Saturday, June 23 at 3:30 pm and is open to the public. It will be followed by a reception. The exhibit will run through August 18.  The gallery hours are Monday through Saturday from 10 AM-4 PM.

Wamogo student wins National Gold Medal
for Photography at Scholastic Art Awards
Wamogo Regional High School is pleased to announce that Jacquelyn Weik, a daughter of Thomas and Lisa Weik of Morris, has earned national recognition in the 2018 Scholastic Art & Writing Awards. She won a National Gold Medal for her black and white photography.
 
 
Jacquelyn has been identified by panels of creative professionals as among the most talented young artists and writers in the nation. This year, nearly 350,000 works of art and writing were submitted. Less than 1% were recognized at the national level.
 
These students and their teachers have been invited to attend a ceremony at the world-famous Carnegie Hall on Thursday, June 7.
 
Since 1923, the Awards have recognized creative teenagers from across the country. By receiving a Scholastic Art & Writing Awards National Medal, the students join a legacy of celebrated authors and artists including Andy Warhol, Sylvia Plath, Truman Capote, Robert Redford, Joyce Carol Oates, and Marc Brown.  ~ contributed by Wendy Costa, Art Teacher, Wamogo Regional High School
