Murder By Bathtub Gin
Welcome to the roaring 20s, where parties are the bees knees! Al Spumoni, the notorious ice cream kingpin, is throwing a shindig like you've never seen before. The lights were dimmed, the jazz was hot, and the bathtub gin was flowing. But, as Al blew out the candles, the night took a dark turn - he took a sip and dropped like a rock!

Suddenly, a mystery is born! Who was behind the dastardly deed? Was it the cunning gangster, the sultry flapper, the sassy starlet, or ... GASP ... even you? Get ready to solve the mystery of Al Spumoni's demise!

Prizes for best costume, break out your flappers and top hats!

Registration and light breakfast at 9:30 am; program begins promptly at 10 am. Ample parking on site; livestream also available. The program, co-sponsored by the Westport Woman’s Club and the Congregation for Humanistic  Judaism of Fairfield County, will be held in the

WWC’s Bedford Hall, 44 Imperial Avenue, Westport, CT.

This lecture on Arthur Szyk’s The New Order is presented in anticipation of the upcoming major exhibition at the Fairfield University Art Museum, In Real Times: Arthur Szyk, Artist and Soldier for Human Rights, September 29-December 16, 2023 (https://www.fairfield.edu/museum/szyk/).

Arthur Szyk’s Freedom from Fear, 1942, and Self-Portrait, 1936

“I do not say that art is my aim; art is my means.” Arthur Szyk (1894-1951)

“An unparalleled artist and illuminator, a self-described ’soldier in art’ who advocated for religious toleration, racial equity, and human dignity. His art offers vibrant imagery and timely messages.” (www.szyk.com)

 

About the political cartoons of Arthur Szyk (1894-1951):

How Arthur Szyk's political cartoons helped generate U.S. support for World War II entry: In the first two years of World War II, the United States remained neutral. With devastation spreading in Europe, memories of World War I and the Spanish Flu Pandemic still fresh, and the Great Depression choking the economy, Americans were receptive to the newspaper editorials and radio speeches of isolationists like Charles Lindbergh. Meanwhile, behind the scenes, as President Franklin Roosevelt worked to prepare the nation for war, a Polish Jewish illustrator, Arthur Szyk, left Europe in 1940 for New York, and dedicated his art to sophisticated caricatures exposing the barbarity of fascism to Americans. Soon, his political cartoons appeared across America, in newspapers, as covers on mass-market magazines, and, in 1941, in his book, The New Order (G.P. Putnam & Sons). Szyk's popular work helped Americans visualize and personalize the evil against which they ultimately had to fight. Today, Szyk's remarkable illustrations and his impact on moving American public opinion toward readiness for war are commemorated in exhibits and museums around the world, including the Bibliothèque Nationale de France, British Museum, Metropolitan Museum of Art, Library of Congress, FDR Presidential Library & Museum and The U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum. (www.szyk.com)

About Deborah Varat, Ph.D:

Dr. Deborah Varat is a professor of Art History at Southern New Hampshire University and Coordinator, Public Humanities Initiative (PHI). Her research focuses on popular press imagery as it relates to the American Jewish experience. She has published articles on the Dreyfus Affair and on representations of Jewish immigrants in the press around the turn of the last century, and is working on a book about representations of Jews in the American popular press from 1880-1945. Arthur Szyk’s World War II caricatures will be the subject of the book’s final chapter.

Each year the Westport Woman’s Club evaluates grant applications from Fairfield County nonprofit organizations.  WWC members spend countless volunteer hours each fall through spring on due diligence to find the right balance between current needs within the community, raised funds, and the WWC mission statement. This past March, COVID-19 arrived as a surprise participant late in the grant evaluation process.
Current WWC President, Christina McVaney shares, “As we go through the current crisis, it has never been more important for philanthropic organizations such as the Westport Woman's Club to use our resources to make the most impact in our community. For that reason, we have identified 5 local organizations that we believe will make an important contribution in Fairfield County in the coming months.”
With the physical and mental well-being of our neighbors taking precedence, the Westport Woman’s Club announces their Spring 2020 Community Service Grants, totaling $50,000, to the following Fairfield County nonprofits: Bridgeport Rescue Mission (www.bridgeportrescuemission.org), Filling in the Blanks (www.fillingintheblanks.org), Domestic Violence Crisis Center (www.dvccct.org), Homes with Hope, Inc. (www.hwhct.org), and Westport Families in Need (coordinated by Westport’s Department of Human Service’s COVID-19 Fund ~ www.westportct.gov). Please visit these five organizations/websites to support the COVID-19 services each are providing within our Fairfield County community.

Members arriving for December Club Day were treated to a festive clubhouse, decorated for the holiday season, thanks to many dedicated members of the WWC Garden Department (chaired by Garden Chair Vivian Rosenberg).  From the handmade wreath gracing the WWC foyer door, decorated trees from the Dining Room to the Bedford Hall Stage, handmade centerpieces of seasonal greenery from our clubhouse gardens, to a boutique for member holiday shopping, Garden Department members provided all attending with a beautiful holiday setting.

October Club Day’s program featured Deby Goldenberg, a certified yoga therapist and a Tai Chi/Qi Gong instructor, who has also achieved a 3rd degree black belt.  Deby began her post-luncheon program by demonstrating the saber form, followed by introducing WWC members to Qi Gong in a guided meditation, including both standing and seated positions within Bedford Hall.   Qi ("subtle breath" or "vital energy") and Gong ("skill cultivated through steady practice") is a mind-body-spirit practice that improves one’s mental and physical health by integrating posture, movement, breathing technique, self-massage, sound, and focused intent.

Bedford Hall was fittingly decorated in a red/white/blue patriotic theme for the club’s June luncheon, as the membership prepares for their largest WWC fundraiser of the year ~ the YANKEE DOODLE FAIR (June 13 – 16).  

Following lunch, our featured speaker was our own WWC Board member, Donna Pellittieri, who was trained as a Fashion Designer at New York’s Fashion Institute of Technology.  Donna initially worked in the fashion industry, but decided to return to school to become an O.R. nurse to support  her “art habit”.  Donna described seeing an ad in the back of a woman’s magazine, ordering a kit, making dolls with her artistic flair, entering her creations in competitions, and ultimately finding her passion in “Art Dolls”.  Donna has now been making dolls for over 30 years.

Flamenco, a derivative of the spanish word for “fire” or “flame”, was the program focus for October’s luncheon.  Thanks to a past WWC Member, Penny Pearlman, members embarked on a historical journey from 1774 when flamenco was “voiced”, to the Golden Age of Flamenco (1850-1910) when spanish cafes and restaurants pulsated with Moorish influences and staccato sounds of dance.  (more…)
