Great Hollow Call for Artists 2024: A Juried Painting and Photography ShowIn Person May 17 – May 19, 2024 at Great Hollow Nature PreserveOnline May 17 – June 30, 2024 Deadline for Submissions: April 15, 2024Calling all painters and photographers who love nature and would like to participate in the seventh annual Great Hollow Photographers Club Juried Painting and Photography Show. Over the past six years, we have raised more than $8500 for Great Hollow Nature Preserve and we hope you will join us for this seventh year of fundraising.Opening Reception is on Friday, May 17, 2024, 6:00– 8:00 pm and all are welcome. The show will continue for viewing and sales Saturday May 18 and Sunday May 19, 2024 10 am – 4 pm, in the barn at Great Hollow. The show will also be online from May 17 – June 30, 2024. The deadline for submission is midnight on Monday April 15, 2024.Artists are invited to submit up to four (4) digital images of 2-dimensional work for the competition. Accepted media are photographs, paintings, collages, drawings and digitally augmented art. There is no fee to submit. The hanging fee for the show is $15 for each accepted work and the Great Hollow Photographers Club will retain a 25% commission on all works sold during the show. All works must be for sale as the profits from the Art Show support Great Hollow Nature Preserve’s mission of environmental education, research, and conservation.The artwork should highlight the Great Hollow Nature Center or, more broadly, the richness of nature and/or the rural life of America’s Northeastern states. Prizes will be donations from local businesses. Jurors for the artwork are Linda Puiatti for painting and Justin Goodhart for photography.Linda Puiatti is a full time artist who paints atmospheric landscapes inspired by the many places where she has traveled and lived. Her favorite locales are the beaches and marshes of the Northeast, Hudson River Valley fields and mountains and the big sky flatlands and farms of Belgium, Netherlands and France where she lived for ten years. These paintings are born in a traditional realism that reaches into the contemporary art world, eliminating minutia in favor of a broad landscape impression. Puiatti’s paintings hang in private and public collections throughout the US, Europe, Australia and Africa and can also be found in several local galleries. For more information regarding Puiatti, visit her website: [www.lindapuiatti.com](http://www.lindapuiatti.com)Justin Goodhart grew up in New York’s Adirondack region and has always had a strong connection to the land and the beauty of the world around us. After having been a casual photographer for many years it was the beauty of the Hudson Valley that served as inspiration for Goodhart to start taking photography more seriously. Focusing primarily on long exposure landscape and nighttime photography he often works to capture not just the momentary scene but also the feeling of our movement through time. For more information on Goodhart, visit: [www.justinpgoodhart.com](http://www.justinpgoodhart.com).For more information, visit the Great Hollow Photographers Club Facebook page: [www.facebook.com/GHPClub](http://www.facebook.com/GHPClub). Direct any questions to GHPhotoC@gmail.com.For prospectus & more information: GHPhotoC@gmaiI.com

**Camerata d’Amici to Present “Touch the Air Softly” on May 19 ** ** ** Choral group Camerata d’Amici will present its spring concert “Touch the Air Softly” on Sunday, May 19, at 4 p.m. at St. Andrew’s Lutheran Church, 6 Ivy Hill Road, Ridgefield, CT. Conducted by artistic director Kristin Sponheim, the program will feature compositions that convey the hope and optimism of spring.  The first half of the concert features songs about love and connection, including “Now Touch the Air Softly,” a setting by Susan LaBarr of the words of former U.S. poet laureate William Jay Smith and “Ballade to the Moon” by Daniel Elder.  The program will continue with songs of comfort and inspiration, including “Salutation” by Latvian composer Ēriks Ešenvalds and “The Peace of Wild Things” by Jake Runestad, a moving setting of the poetry of Wendell Berry. The concert concludes with “O!  What a Beautiful City,” a jubilant setting by Shawn Kirchner of an African-American spiritual for six-part choir with piano accompaniment. The concert will also feature the New England premiere of “Silver Dagger,” composed by former Ridgefielder Amelia Wellers, and sung by the women of Camerata.  Founded in 2006, Camerata d’Amici is an auditioned choir made up of singers from Fairfield and Westchester counties. “Touch the Air Softly” will feature performances by the full group and a chamber ensemble, as well as men’s and women’s pieces and vocal solos by soprano Juliet Pratt of Ridgefield, and Thomas Carr of Danbury.  The choir will be accompanied by Margarita Nuller (piano).   Tickets at the door are $30 for adults and $10 for youth 18 and under. Advance tickets, with a reduced ticket price of $25 for adults, may be purchased at cameratadamici.org. Online tickets are available through Friday, May 17. Follow [Camerata d’Amici](https://cameratadamici.org) on [Instagram](https://www.instagram.com/camerata_damici) and [Facebook](https://www.instagram.com/camerata_damici), and listen to past performances on [YouTube](https://www.youtube.com/user/cameratadAMICI).

Gain the skills and confidence to effectively express yourself in any situation. Whether you are a mature manager, student, young professional, career advancer or looking to make an impact in your community, Toastmasters is the most efficient, supportive, enjoyable and affordable way of gaining great communication skills.  - Be more persuasive and confident when giving speeches - Practice to become a leader and an eloquent speaker - Grow into a better negotiator and sharpen your management skills - Gain trust and inspire teams   Toastmasters members report getting promoted because of their ability to build a convincing argument, landing better job opportunities while networking because of polished impromptu speaking skills, impressing a hiring manager during an interview and expressing their thoughts when speaking in public at formal or informal functions.   **How Toastmasters Works: ** Members learn by speaking to groups and working with others in a supportive environment. The Bethel Toastmasters club is made of 10-20 people who meet on the first and third Monday of each month for up to two hours. Each meeting gives members and guests several opportunities: - Guests and members present one- to two-minute, impromptu speeches about assigned topics. - Members learn how to plan and conduct meetings. - Members present speeches based on projects from the Pathways learning experience—Toastmasters' education program. Projects cover topics such as speech organization, vocal variety, language, gestures and persuasion. - Every speaker is assigned an evaluator who points out speech strengths and offers suggestions for improvement. - New members are offered the opportunity to work with a mentor   **Are you ready to grow your potential?**     **Meeting Location:** Bethel Public Library, [189 Greenwood Avenue, Bethel, CT 06801](https://maps.google.com/maps?q=189+Greenwood+Avenue%2C+Bethel%2C+CT+06801&z=14) **Meeting Time:** 6:15 pm ET   Get in touch with us if you have any questions:  - Phone: 475-529-0242  - Email: [](http://gmail.com)[betheltoastmasters@gmail.com](mailto:betheltoastmasters@gmail.com)  - Facebook: [](https://www.facebook.com/betheltoastmasters)[https://www.facebook.com/](https://www.facebook.com)[betheltoastmasters/](https://www.facebook.com/betheltoastmasters/) - LinkedIn: [](https://www.linkedin.com/company/bethel-toastmasters)[https://www.linkedin.com/](https://www.linkedin.com)[company/bethel-toastmasters](https://www.linkedin.com/company/bethel-toastmasters)    **Join Toastmasters.

A decade later, she would make her Broadway debut _Merrily We Roll Along_, written by the same composer, directed by the same director (Harold Prince), and opening at the same theater. Now, with her critically acclaimed show _To Steve With Love_, she pays homage to the writer who changed the course of her life. Honoring the life and songs of the most influential composer/lyricist of the modern musical, the Emmy winner, Tony Award nominee and newly-minted Grammy nominee celebrates the master with a carefully curated evening of the words and music of Stephen Joshua Sondheim. BroadwayWorld raves, “it is the most important Sondheim show right now, and it is the one that can not be missed. Liz Callaway has performed worldwide, and in nearly every major city in the U.S., regularly taking the stage with her sister, AnnHampton Callaway.

Hors d’oeuvres, wine, beer and other beverages will be available to opening night guests, beginning at 7pm.

Hors d’oeuvres, wine, beer and other beverages will be available to opening night guests, beginning at 7pm.
