The identity that each explores may be personal, political, social or cultural; it may reflect the influence of a hometown, country of birth or adoption, a place visited, or a region whose art has made an impression, an artistic or scientific movement or a broader focus on the effects globalization.

Art to the Avenue
May

5:30 PM17:30

Art to the Avenue

Whoever said that art and commerce don’t mix was clearly mistaken. Since 1998 Art to the Avenue had been doing just that. Each May,  with the overwhelming support of the Greenwich business community, the Arts Council turns Greenwich Avenue into a strolling gallery. 
One of the largest and most exciting festivals ever organized, the Opening is set for Thursday, May 2, from 5:30 - 8pm. 

The evening launches a truly spectacular show. Musicians and street performers fill the street entertaining strollers. 
Most stores host receptions for the hundreds of visitors who attend to preview the work of over 120 artists. The art selected by the retailers remains in place through Memorial Day, so there is ample time for viewers to experience the “gallery” that downtown Greenwich becomes. 
All the art on display is for sale, and a 30% tax deduction for the purchaser benefits GAC. 

A complete Map/Guide is published listing all participants, so that individual shops, artists and locations are easy to locate.

Their two dimensional work has the added dimension of time and space to acquire depth and intensity. The artists are Frances Ashforth, Lori Glavin, Justin Kim and Shona Macdonald. Curated by Fereshteh Priou and Ruth Sutcliffe.

Women for Women Networking

This state of the art training center for cancer survivors and cancer prevention will be offering a yoga and foundation class for anyone interested in participating so feel free to come in your comfy work out gear. Classes will begin at 5:45 pm. The Mission is located down a driveway and not easy to find from the street so I will put balloons at the top of the driveway so you will know you are in the right place,

In addition they will top off this unprecedented experience by providing some hors d’oeuvres provided by @Cinch in Fairfield.

As always I ask that you bring your favorite beverage and appetizer for sharing.

The highlight will be the ability to hear about the celebratory CT Challenge bike ride taking place this July that powers the whole thing. #LiveLifeVibrantly.

As always, I ask that you bring your favorite beverage and appetizer and encourage you to bring and invite friends to share in the fun!

 

Women for Women launched on Pine Creek beach eight years ago when some really fabulous women wanted to get together with their beach chairs, favorite

beverage and appetizer and watch the sunset.  Our success is predicated on informal, informative and engaging conversation. We meet the first Monday of every

month. Please check out our website at www.womenforwomenct.com and our group Facebook page Women for Women. 

 

Mark your calendar for future dates on the first Monday of every Month: April 8 as an exception because I will be on vacation on April 1, May 6 indoors and then June 3, July 1, August 5 back on Pine Creek Beach.

If you would like to host a future Women for Women, please email me. We are so blessed to have the many invitations I receive to host us. Thank you!

Many thanks to ALL for your continued love and support!!! Please forward this email to any other women you think would like to attend.

If you would like to be removed from receiving this email moving forward please advise. I apologize for the inconvenience.

Please feel free to invite and bring other fabulous women to experience what promises to be an unprecedented evening of meeting, sharing and navigating.

About the Artist

Sergey Stepanenko was born in Barnaul, Russia in 1956. He graduated from Fine Art College in Frunze, Kyrgyzstan, receiving a Bachelors in Fine Art degree. He then attended Moscow Printing University, where he received a six-year Masters degree in book design. Sergey has been an active artist since the 1970s, working in many art forms. He now focuses on painting, influenced by the traditions of 20th Century Russian Art and Pablo Picasso.

Sergey moved to United States in 1995. Moving to a foreign country had its challenges, but also provided exciting professional opportunities. His art adorns some of the finest homes in the country, including Keith Richards and the Kennedys. Locally, he has exhibited at SONO Galerie in Norwalk, Zorya Fine Art in Greenwich, and SPAG at Oakhill Mansion. He currently works from his studio in Norwalk.
