Silk Road Art Gallery 83 Audubon Street New Haven, CT 06510 See Artwork by Linda Beagle & Catherine Cucurullo 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.

RSVP http://yaaa.yale.edu/rsvp-cant-wait-reflections-movement 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.
