Westport Historical Society Saugatuck History Walking Tour

25 Avery Place, Westport, CT Phone: 203-222-1424.

3-4 pm. Join us for one of its most popular walking tours, a stroll through Old Saugatuck accompanied by guide Bob Mitchell. The one-hour tour begins at 3:00 pm and ends with a drink on the house at one of Saugatuck's favorite haunts, the Black Duck. As you make your way through the neighborhood that sits along the tracks near the Westport train station, Mitchell will discuss Saugatuck's past as a manufacturing hub and the tight-knit, predominantly Italian community it was to become. Most of what we now know as Westport was once called Saugatuck, after the river, though when the town was incorporated in 1835 from parts of Norwalk and Fairfield, it was given the name Westport.

Center for Contemporary Printmaking Demonstrations

05/13/2017

299 West Ave, Norwalk, CT Phone: 203-899-7999.

1-3 pm. Viscosity. Viscosity printing involves applying inks of different densities to a printing plate to achieve beautiful and unusual color combinations. The premise for this technique is that thin, more liquid inks painted or rolled onto a printing plate, will reject rolls of denser, thicker inks. The different viscosity inks will separate, creating striking color effects. Every singular brush stroke, mark or shape, planned or accidental, will be defined as it contrasts surrounding colors. The technique can be used for monoprints and multiple prints of the same image. Demonstration includes the opportunity to try the technique.
