"'A Sense of Place' Between Here and New York City" featured in Lakeville Journal's Compass, written by Emily Gates

Expressionistic landscapes and urban scenes are among the highlights of the noteworthy Helen Cantrell show currently on view at The White Gallery in Lakeville. The show’s straightforward title, “A Sense of Place,” feels just right for the images assembled here. Nimbly, and sometimes unpredictably, Cantrell seems to have captured whatever might have been before her at any given moment: whether she was in Venice or Bridgeport, looking out on a snow-covered landscape or the angular, mid-century lines of a suburban home.

“A Sense of Place” runs through July 28 at The White Gallery, 342 Main Street, Lakeville, CT. For further information, visit  www.thewhitegalleryart.com  or call 860 -435-1029.

Renoir at the Clark
There can be little doubt that Pierre-Auguste Renoir (1841–1919) liked women. Over the course of his long career, he continually turned to the human figure for inspiration—and not infrequently to the nude female form.

Municipal Money Market Accounts – why they make sense
If you’ve ever been a part of a Municipal government - in leadership, city council, Board of Ed or a finance committee you will completely understand how daunting money management can be. Not only are you dealing with budgets and all the pressure that goes along with creating the right one, hoping it gets approved and makes everyone happy (or the majority at least), but you also need to make sound decisions when it comes to your investments and portfolio management .
