Curated by Westport Artist Miggs Burroughs, this popular show features a variety of local artists and their works available for purchase. Chair Jo Fuchs Luscombe shares that participating artists are donating a portion of their art sales to fund the club’s community service grants to non-profit organizations in Fairfield County, in addition to need-based college scholarships for Staples High School seniors.
The roster of WWC Art Show 2019 artists, whose works will be available for purchase, include: Paul Cohen, Kat Evans, Susan Fehlinger, Mary Harold, Hernan Garcia, Darcy Hicks, Julie Hicks, Amy Kaplan, Rachel Linnett, Fruma Markowitz, Mary Ann Neilson, Jon Puzzuoli, Jo Titsworth and Gregg Welz. Cash, checks and credit cards will be accepted for Art Show purchases and charitable donations to the Westport Woman’s Club.
Melissa Newman, accompanied by guitarist Tony Lombardozzi, will return again this year to lend her voice at Saturday evening’s Opening Reception. Melissa, who is often featured at Westport’s Harvest and Pearl at Longshore restaurants, will be singing some of her favorite jazz standards to promote local artists and the non-profit philanthropy of the Westport Woman’s Club.
