Oil and Water Group Show
10:00 AM

 Oil and Water, a group show of oils and watercolors is on display at the Woodbury Public Library December 1 – 30.   In 2012, Diana “Nanny” Swoyer joined her friends, Kit Sagendorf, Maryellen Furse, Jan Grody, and Nancy Pistone, in the spring painting class with Marija McCarthy at Washington Art Association.  Ms McCarthy’s wonderful watercolor/oil painting classes were very popular with students in the area for many years. Over the next few years, Hitchy Rahilly, Carol O’Toole, Jean O’Reilly and Sandy Dolinksy joined in. In 2014, Marija retired but the group decided to continue on painting together.  The group has painted at the Litchfield Community Center in all seasons come rain or shine.  The artists believe that painting is a solitary endeavor but to find friends to paint with can be very stimulating and helpful.  The group gave themselves the name Oil and Water because they paint in both media.  The phrase often interpreted as “conflicted” as it’s the opposite of what they are.  The mutual celebration of each artist’s talents is what the group is all about.

Book Talk and Signing of the CT 169 Club
2:00 PM

 Power Point presentation and book signing by author and historian Marty Podskoch and his new book, The Connecticut 169 Club: Your Passport and Guide to Exploring Connecticut

The new travel book encourages travelers to visit all of the towns and villages of our beautiful and unique state.  As he traveled throughout the state he marveled at the great diversity of villages, cities, rivers, lakes, mountains, and seashores. He realized that most of the residents of the state had not traveled as widely as he had and he wanted them to explore his beautiful state.

He created a book to be a guide and a passport. Podskoch got someone from each town to write a short description highlighting their town’s location, history, and interesting places to visit. Podskoch did this because local residents knew more about their town than he. The book has a space for travelers to journal about their experiences and a place to get the book stamped or signed by a resident or business.  Travelers will get to know the locals and perhaps learn about a good place to eat or an interesting local attraction. In this way they get to know a lot about Connecticut and its residents.

There is no membership fee, just a desire to experience all of Connecticut. Adults and children of all ages can be members. What a great adventure for families, grandparents, and their grandchildren, or go by oneself. Most members will travel by car while others might use a bike, motorcycle, or maybe a canoe!

People who visit all 169 towns will receive the “Leatherman Award” patch at a luncheon or dinner held at a different town each year. The award is named after the vagabond who lived in caves and traveled a route regularly (approx. 34 days) from the Connecticut River to the Hudson River during the late 1800s.

After Podskoch’s talks he and some of the writers and co-writers of the book will be available for a book signing. The hard cover 8.5 X 11 book has 376 pages with hundreds of photos & maps and sells for $24.95. All are welcome to attend the talk.
