Roses by Catherine Cucurullo, watercolor
During March and April, two Madison artists, Linda Beagle and Catherine Cucurullo will be
exhibiting their artwork at the Madison Town Hall, 8 Campus Drive, Madison, CT. The
exhibit is open to the public and can be viewed during regular business hours.
Linda Beagle, a long time resident of Madison, started painting after receiving a paint by
number set when she was a child. When the painting was done, there was paint left over
and so started a love affair with drawing and painting. Eventually she went to Southern
University to become an art education major. Although finances prevented her from
finishing college, she continued to pursue her hobby and became an artist member of the
Clinton and Madison art societies until going back to work full time. Now retired, she again
has started painting and displaying her work. She is currently a member of the Clinton,
Madison, and Guilford Art Leagues and enjoys getting together with other seniors who,
like her, have time to express themselves.
Catherine Cucurullo is thrilled to be showing some of her work at the Town Campus in
Madison. She joined the Madison Art Society shortly after moving to town from
Westchester County, NY five years ago. Catherine adores being involved and feels that
she has learned so much from her colleagues and friends in the Wednesday morning
watercolor group. She loves watercolor for the challenge and the effect it has when
applying certain transparent color on color, along with the variety of ways to apply the
chroma onto paper. Born and raised in Scotland, Catherine moved to the U.S. over fifty
years ago where she met her husband Albert and has three fantastic children - Brian,
Heather and Robyn. In addition to watercolor, Catherine loves to play tennis and spend
time with her two grandsons David and Jamie.

Stanley Maxwell at Wesleyan University
The "Music at The Russell House" series presented by Wesleyan University’s Center for
the Arts and The Russell House concludes with a free concert by the Connecticut-based
jazz quartet Stanley Maxwell on Sunday, March 1, 2015 at 3pm in The Russell House,
located at 350 High Street on the corner of Washington Street on the Wesleyan campus in
Middletown. The group plays music that blends tight arrangements with intricate group
improvisations. The concert at Wesleyan will feature acoustic arrangements of original
tunes from the past decade, including several world premieres.
Stanley Maxwell features Andy Chatfield on drums, Mark Crino on bass, Eric DellaVecchia
on alto saxophone, and Evan Green on piano. The group has built a grassroots name for
themselves at colleges and festivals throughout the northeast since 2001, combining the
virtuosic and the simple into a visceral concoction, which helped lead to their winning
“Best Jazz Band” in the Hartford Advocate’s Grand Band Slam Readers' Poll in 2007,
2009, and 2010. Several live shows by Stanley Maxwell can be downloaded for free from
the Internet Archive's Live Music library here: https://archive.org/details/StanleyMaxwell.

a few.

A New Work by A Broken Umbrella Theatre
February 25–28
This original musical goes beyond the footlights to celebrate 100
years of theater at the historic Shubert, New Haven. When an

dancing technicians, and panicking producers, SEEN CHANGE! pays homage to the
blood, sweat, and tears that go into creating theater and the legacies left behind.

Can't Wait/Reflections on the Movement

presents Hartbeat Ensemble Can’t Wait/Reflections on the Movement
February 26, 2015, 4:30 PM
Yale Afro-American Cultural Center
211 Park Street, New Haven
Can’t Wait takes Martin Luther King Jr.’s famous Letters from a Birmingham Jail and
interweaves his reflections with the many voices from then until now. From Maya Angelou
to Jay-Z, comments from social media and the music of Sam Cooke and George Clinton,
hear how the Civil Rights movement echoes the hopes, fears, dreams and living
nightmares of today. How have things changed? We have made progress for the better,
what can we do about the things that are worse? The play raises these questions and
more, engaging the audience in conversations that tells us when it comes to inequality, we
can’t wait.

Italian American Women of CT
Comparing her life as a cigar maker in New Haven to
her grueling labors as a taglialegna, or lumberman, in
1930s Italy, Michelina Venditti can’t help chuckling at
the contrast. Venditti’s remarkable account of felling
trees to make charcoal is just one of many riveting
oral histories collected by author Anthony Riccio for
his newest book, “Farms, Factories and Families:
Italian American Women of Connecticut.” On Sunday,
March 1, 2015, at 2 p.m., Riccio will visit the New
Haven Museum to share remarkable, poignant, and
sometimes humorous details of the lives of
courageous women who journeyed to Connecticut in
the first half of the 20th century in search of a better
life. The lecture is a New Haven Museum "Free First
Sunday" program; admission is free; donations are welcomed.
Between 1880 and 1920, more than 4 million Italians immigrated to America, many
arriving in New Haven harbor. Fleeing dire poverty and social unrest, the mostly illiterate
farmers struggled to assimilate in America. Riccio’s own grandmother, Cesarina Russo,
defied her father, who forbade her marriage to a man she loved, and fled to New Haven to
live with her brother. Riccio notes that like many peasant women who had experienced the
grinding poverty of Southern Italy, his grandmother harbored searing memories of her
homeland, and never returned.
“Farms, Factories and Families: Italian American Women of Connecticut" is the story of
Italian American women who tell their largely unknown history in their own words.
The New Haven Museum, founded in 1862 as the New Haven Colony Historical Society,
is located in downtown New Haven at 114 Whitney Avenue. The Museum is currently
celebrating 150 years of collecting, preserving and interpreting the history and heritage of
Greater New Haven. Through its collections, exhibitions, programs and outreach, the
Museum brings 375 years of New Haven history to life. For more information visit
www.newhavenmuseum.org or facebook.com/NewHavenMuseum.
Author Sonia Nieto Discusses New Book
Sonia Nieto, professor emerita of language, literacy and culture at the University of
Massachusetts, Amherst, will discuss her new book, “Why We Teach Now,” a collection of
essays written by teachers, at 7 p.m. on Wednesday, March 4, in the auditorium in the
Center for Medicine, Nursing and Health Sciences on the North Haven Campus of
Quinnipiac University, 370 Bassett Road.
Born and raised in Brooklyn, N.Y., Nieto earned her bachelor’s degree in elementary
education from St. John’s University. Upon graduation, she attended New York
University’s graduate program in Madrid, Spain and earned her master’s in Spanish and
Hispanic literature. She began her teaching career teaching English, Spanish and Spanish
as a second language at a junior high school in Brooklyn, and later accepted a post at
P.S. 25 in the Bronx, the first fully bilingual school in the Northeast. Her first position in
higher education was as an instructor in the Department of Puerto Rican Studies at
Brooklyn College, where she taught in a bilingual education teacher preparation program.
After moving to Massachusetts in 1975, Nieto completed her doctoral studies in 1979 with
specializations in curriculum studies, bilingual education and multicultural education. After
retiring from the University of Massachusetts in 2006, Nieto continues to speak and write
on multicultural education, teacher preparation, the education of Latinos and other
culturally and linguistically diverse student populations. Her book, “Affirming Diversity: The
Sociopolitical Context of Multicultural Education,” is widely used in teacher preparation
and in-service courses around the country.
Nieto’s talk, which is free and open to the public, is part of Quinnipiac’s Campus Cross
Talk series, a year-long array of events that engage students and faculty in discussions on
topics related to a central theme. For more information, call 203-582-8652.

explore the cross-section of analog and digital media. In this age of the internet of things,
where our toasters communicate over the internet and robots vacuum our floors, this
exhibition explores those artistic objects  —  or their 2D and 3D representations  —  which
appear to be responsive to our existence, or at least demand an empathy if not an
emotion, that we give to sentient beings.
