        'Paper Movies' At Joseloff In West Hartford

        The exhibit on the walls for one more week at the Joseloff Gallery in West Hartford is called "Paper Movies."

            Hunger, Past And Present, Topic Of Bridgeport, Hamden Exhibits

            Hunger is a dramatically compelling subject but it seems to make its way into the fine arts infrequently. Maybe the specter of abject misery is just too tragic, especially when one considers how avoidable famine usually is. To paraphrase one observer, crop failure may be an act of God, but mass...

                    Some people celebrate Valentine's weekend with flowers, chocolates, a dinner at a romantic restaurant. Others go see vampire movies.

                        I love Cape Cod.
