Area artists featured in Wilton Library’s exhibition opening June 1 

Whether from backgrounds of business careers or art school educated, the twelve artists from NEST Arts Factory will put on a dazzling display of their talents when Wilton Library welcomes them in an opening reception on Friday, June 1, from 6 to 7:30 p.m. The featured artists are Kristen Ambrosi—Fairfield, Patrice Barrett—Easton, Carlos Davila—Bridgeport, Jane Davila—Bridgeport, Gwen Hendrix—Oxford, Phyllis Lee—Westport, Kristin Merrill—Easton, Meighan Morrison—Bridgeport, Jill Morton—Wilton, Susan Taylor Murray—Monroe, Denise Susalka—Redding, and Janice Sweetwater—Redding.  The artists work in a wide array of media including watercolor, oil, acrylic, pastel, graphics, mixed media, sculpture and framed jewelry.  Their styles and choices of subject matter are as diverse as the artists’ backgrounds, using portraits, still life, abstracts, botanicals, landscapes and more as the basis of their works.

Ed MacEwen, the library’s art chairman, remarked about the group, “I was fortunate last year to catch an exhibition by this talented cadre of artists and felt that their diversity in style and form would be perfect for the library’s walls.”

The NEST Arts Factory is a community of artists inspired by their surroundings in a reimagined factory building in Bridgeport.  According to the group’s website, its mission is “to showcase and nurture artists, musicians, and the creative process. To provide a unique and inspiring environment to explore and discover art and music while enabling artists and musicians to experiment and collaborate across disciplines and media.”  The NEST began as an outgrowth of the Cricket Hosiery Co., the first company to combine computers with knitting machines to create graphically-designed socks.  A number of graphic artists were employed to design the socks, thereby establishing an early relationship with the local arts community. As excess factory space became available, artists began to move into the space. With the decline of business, artist easels and drawing tables replaced knitting machines as the space gave over entirely to the new NEST Arts Factory.

The reception is free and open to the public. Most of the seventy works will be available to purchase with a portion of the proceeds benefiting the library. The exhibition runs through June 28. The media sponsor for the exhibition is The Wilton Bulletin.

Wilton Library is located at 137 Old Ridgefield Road in the heart of Wilton Center.  Library hours are Mondays through Thursdays, 10 a.m. to 8 p.m., Fridays, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., Saturdays, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sundays, 1 to 5 p.m. The library will be closed for Sunday hours beginning June 24.  For information and directions, visit www.wiltonlibrary.org or call 203-762-6334.

The Good News

The rain was off and on during the National Association of Letter Carriers’ “Stamp Out Hunger” Food Drive on Saturday, May 12, but hundreds of volunteers from Darien, New Canaan, Norwalk, Stamford, Weston, Westport and Wilton turned out to help sort the food donations that Person-to-Person received from Darien, Norwalk and Wilton.

We are grateful to all the volunteers – the Darien High School Freshman Baseball Team, the alumni of Boston College, Bucknell and Yale, the Wilton High School Class of 2021, the students from Norwalk High School and Lauralton Hall, the Pepperidge Farm employee service team and all the community volunteers who helped. Thank you to members of Darien’s Ivanhoe Masonic Lodge #107 for donating and preparing the hamburgers, hot dogs and other refreshments to keep the volunteers going. And a big shout out to the Letter Carriers who, over the day, got in and out of their trucks to pick up the donated food – many of them in plastic bags – left at mailboxes by generous donors.

The Bad News

Unfortunately, we did not receive as much donated food as we have in previous years. In fact, we received 10,000 pounds less, from what is the largest food drive P2P has each year which stocks our Food Pantries with three months of food for families.

The 10,000-pound shortfall is going to have a significant impact on P2P’s ability to provide groceries to families and children over the summer months – a time of year when demand is higher because parents are preparing meals for their children who receive free or reduced-price meals at school during the school year.

How You Can Help

If you have a bag from Saturday and were worried about putting it out in the rain, please drop it off at either 76 South Main Street in Norwalk or 1864 Post Road in Darien. If you don’t have a bag of food already purchased, please help P2P stock the food pantries by going to Palmer’s Market in Darien or the Stop & Shop stores in Darien, Norwalk or Wilton to fill up a bag and leave it in the bins provided. Please consider hosting a food drive at your office, house of worship or school or making a donation at the P2P website.

P2P appreciates all you do as a caring community to help people in need.

RVNA Health Source: What is Arthritis and Who Gets It? https://news.hamlethub.com/wilton/life/48342-rvna-health-source-what-is-arthritis-and-who-gets-it48342-rvna-health-source-what-is-arthritis-and-who-gets-it https://news.hamlethub.com/wilton/life/48342-rvna-health-source-what-is-arthritis-and-who-gets-it48342-rvna-health-source-what-is-arthritis-and-who-gets-it

Arthritis is very common and refers to joint pain or disease. It is the leading cause of disability in the United States. Risk factors include age, gender (more women than men experience it), genetics, weight, joint injuries or overuse, and infection. Common arthritis joint symptoms are swelling, pain, stiffness and decreased range of motion.

Symptoms can be mild to severe and can come and go. In some cases, the disease can progress and become debilitating over time. Often thought of as a disease that affects the elderly, sixty percent of the American adults with arthritis are of working age, 18-64 years old. There are many different types of arthritis, the most common being osteoarthritis, a wearing away of the cartilage that cushions joint bones and can result in chronic pain and the potential need for joint replacement. Other forms of arthritis include rheumatoid arthritis, psoriatic arthritis, gout, and lupus.

Some forms of arthritis can affect other organs and cause widespread symptoms. Arthritis often occurs with other chronic diseases like heart disease, diabetes, and obesity, and together they can make disease management challenging. Appropriate treatment to reduce symptoms of arthritis depends on proper diagnosis as determined by a physical exam and other tests. At a minimum, a self-management education program, physical activity like walking or swimming, and maintaining a healthy weight can help to reduce symptoms and preserve joint function, mobility, and quality of life. In more serious cases, additional treatments can include medication, physical and occupational therapy, and surgery. Rehab by RVNA at 27 Governor Street provides physical, occupational and speech therapy onsite. For more information call 203 438-7862.

Founded in 1914, RVNA is an accredited non-profit Medicare-certified home healthcare agency that also supports public health and safety, and promotes the highest quality of life. RVNA provides compassionate care to all individuals, whether young or old, through a continuum of care that encompasses health care at home and in the community. RVNA also provides home health aides and companionship through a non-medical subsidiary called HomeCare by RVNA and outpatient physical, occupational and speech therapy in its Rehab by RVNA facility at 27 Governor Street, Ridgefield.
