Pat Musick: Our Fragile Home was inspired by the words astronauts have used universally upon viewing Earth from space for the first time: Fragile, Protect, Beauty, Steward, Sustain, Harmony, Nurture. In different languages and across many boundaries, their words were all the same. Through paint, sculpture, and mixed media, she conveys the fragility of our planet, and its natural and eternal beauty. Musick’s work has been exhibited throughout the nation with over 50 permanent installations. She was married to Skylab 4 Commander, astronaut Jerry Carr. Their life is the subject of the award-winning film "The Artist & The Astronaut," which had its CT premiere at the SM&NC last May.

Program DescriptionTo start you off on the right footing and avoid the mistakes so many watercolorists face, you will find the principles of watercolor painting to be the most targeted and focused on this class. The first and most pressing to acquire are Values, Colors, Materials, and Basic Techniques, all of which we tackle with the spirit of a ballet dancer's moves. Knowing these principles provides you with the verve and self-assurance of having acquired a solid foundation that leads to painting more complex subject matter in the next step, the Intermediate & Advanced Watercolor class.

In this exhibition of recent work, Chamlin explores ideas about color theory and light through a series of landscape and interior stills. Since 2012, the artist has carefully charted her paints using the Munsell color system, which analyzes colors in terms of hue (the color itself), value (relative light and dark) and chroma (level of saturation or brilliance). For each of her paintings, Chamlin sets a highly specific palette; experimentation within this limited range then guides her decisions about process and pictorial space. **About the Artist** Chamlin is Associate Professor of Studio Art in the Department of Visual & Performing Arts at Fairfield University. Her drawings are in the collections of the National Gallery of Art, Yale University Art Gallery, and the Nelson Atkins Museum. Chamlin has attended residencies at the Albers Foundation, Yaddo, Virginia Center for the Creative Arts, Ragdale, Fundación Valparaiso, and Edna St. Vincent Millay Colony. Chamlin received her B.A. from Barnard College and M.F.A. from Yale University. For more about the exhibition, visit our website [here](https://fairfield.edu/museum/suzanne-chamlin).

Program DescriptionTo start you off on the right footing and avoid the mistakes so many watercolorists face, you will find the principles of watercolor painting to be the most targeted and focused on this class. The first and most pressing to acquire are Values, Colors, Materials, and Basic Techniques, all of which we tackle with the spirit of a ballet dancer's moves. Knowing these principles provides you with the verve and self-assurance of having acquired a solid foundation that leads to painting more complex subject matter in the next step, the Intermediate & Advanced Watercolor class.

In celebration of Asian American, Native Hawaiian and Pacific Islander Heritage Month, please join us for a special program about the Chinese musical tradition including musical instrument demonstrations and professional performance. Wilton residents Anchi Lin and her son, New York- and Boston-based conductor Julian Gau, will present information and demonstrate several traditional classical instruments from China. Two musicians from the Chinese Music Ensemble of New York will then perform on their chosen instruments: - Xiao-ran Eric Liu, an outstanding Bamboo Flute professional with an innovative approach when collaborating with western instruments - Rini Zhang: a virtuoso Erhu player and also an opera singer focuses on diverse styles of performing repertoire Chinese classical music preserved many ancient musical elements from the historical Asia regions. Through the Silk Road, musicians and merchants from the Middle East, Central Asia, and South Asia brought their music and instruments to China. The capital of China, from around 200 BC until 14 AD, was like New York or Paris nowadays, where many traveled and brought their cultural heritages there. Over about 1600 years, Chinese musicians observed and preserved some of the instruments and musical elements that came from different parts of Asia, which ended up in what we now understand to be “Chinese classical music.” The heritage “Chinese” music is a story of continuous integration and infusion of diverse musical traditions from different parts of Asia. No charge. Co-sponsored by Wilton Library and the Chinese Music Ensemble of New York. Registration required.

In this exhibition of recent work, Chamlin explores ideas about color theory and light through a series of landscape and interior stills. Since 2012, the artist has carefully charted her paints using the Munsell color system, which analyzes colors in terms of hue (the color itself), value (relative light and dark) and chroma (level of saturation or brilliance). For each of her paintings, Chamlin sets a highly specific palette; experimentation within this limited range then guides her decisions about process and pictorial space. **About the Artist** Chamlin is Associate Professor of Studio Art in the Department of Visual & Performing Arts at Fairfield University. Her drawings are in the collections of the National Gallery of Art, Yale University Art Gallery, and the Nelson Atkins Museum. Chamlin has attended residencies at the Albers Foundation, Yaddo, Virginia Center for the Creative Arts, Ragdale, Fundación Valparaiso, and Edna St. Vincent Millay Colony. Chamlin received her B.A. from Barnard College and M.F.A. from Yale University. For more about the exhibition, visit our website [here](https://fairfield.edu/museum/suzanne-chamlin).

Anton has experimented with various methods, including wood, metal, plaster, resin, and oil and acrylic paints to achieve the physicality of his monumental desserts.

In this exhibition of recent work, Chamlin explores ideas about color theory and light through a series of landscape and interior stills. Since 2012, the artist has carefully charted her paints using the Munsell color system, which analyzes colors in terms of hue (the color itself), value (relative light and dark) and chroma (level of saturation or brilliance). For each of her paintings, Chamlin sets a highly specific palette; experimentation within this limited range then guides her decisions about process and pictorial space. **About the Artist** Chamlin is Associate Professor of Studio Art in the Department of Visual & Performing Arts at Fairfield University. Her drawings are in the collections of the National Gallery of Art, Yale University Art Gallery, and the Nelson Atkins Museum. Chamlin has attended residencies at the Albers Foundation, Yaddo, Virginia Center for the Creative Arts, Ragdale, Fundación Valparaiso, and Edna St. Vincent Millay Colony. Chamlin received her B.A. from Barnard College and M.F.A. from Yale University. For more about the exhibition, visit our website [here](https://fairfield.edu/museum/suzanne-chamlin).

This whimsical exhibition of Peter Anton’s outsized, hyper-realistic sculptures of sweets will include ice cream cones, cakes and confections. Anton has experimented with various methods, including wood, metal, plaster, resin, and oil and acrylic paints to achieve the physicality of his monumental desserts. He chooses subjects that encourage people to think about their own relationship to food, and the memories and nostalgia that these childhood favorites conjure.

Program DescriptionTo start you off on the right footing and avoid the mistakes so many watercolorists face, you will find the principles of watercolor painting to be the most targeted and focused on this class. The first and most pressing to acquire are Values, Colors, Materials, and Basic Techniques, all of which we tackle with the spirit of a ballet dancer's moves. Knowing these principles provides you with the verve and self-assurance of having acquired a solid foundation that leads to painting more complex subject matter in the next step, the Intermediate & Advanced Watercolor class.

Herlin Riley is a native of New Orleans. He’s a member of a New Orleans musical family (The Lastie Family). Today he’s considered to be one of the most premier and prolific drummers in the world today. The range of his musical experiences makes the demand for his drumming skills a first call for performers, recording artist and teaching engagements. In the early 80’s Herlin switched to playing the drums exclusively and was called to London, Australia and Europe to play in a 1920’s style musical called "One Mo' Time."
