Coast Guard's Golden Age on the Silver Screen

Monday, Mar. 30, 2015, 10:00 am

Art Exhibits/Openings

Gallery at Firehouse Square, 239 Bank Street, New London, CT , 06320

While the United States Coast Guard is often overlooked in American history, 20th century popular culture found no shortage of heroism, adventure, and romance on the decks of cutters. From coast to coast, Hollywood’s silver screen depicted Coasties saving the day: rescuing those in danger, arresting drug traffickers, chasing smugglers and protecting the nation’s ports.

After retiring from the Coast Guard in 1972, Ralph Judd collected over 500 movie posters, lobby cards and press packets which have been donated to the U.S. Coast Guard Museum. Mary-Elizabeth Pratt has curated a collection of these items allowing the public to view a sample of the collection covering the 1920’s to the 1950’s.

Hygienic Art , 79 Bank Street, New London, CT , 06320

The 4th Annual Connecticut Printmakers Invitational (CPI) will open with a public reception on Saturday March 21, from 6 – 9 p.m. at Hygienic Art, 79 Bank Street, New London, and will run till April 18.
The impetus for the creation of this Annual Connecticut Printmakers Invitational came into being as a way to foster understanding and appreciation of the art of printmaking. Art enthusiasts are given the opportunity to appreciate the different printmaking techniques from etching to lithography and understand the tremendous skill and craft that goes into producing a print. This exhibit is held in a different part of Connecticut and different gallery each year in order to share printmaking with as many Connecticut residents as possible. The professional printmakers invited to exhibit in this show also come from Connecticut and the high quality work they display varies greatly in their subject matter and technique.

Participating artists include Irene Miller (Monotype), Jo Yarrington (Chiné Colle, Polaroid Transfer and Transfer Print), Shirley Bernstein (Color Woodcuts, Skyscapes), Meldoy Leary (Photopolymer Intaglio), Yelizaveta Masalimova (Monoprints and Intaglio), Karen Vogel (Monoprints), Renee Santhouse (Trace Monoprints), Alexia Lalande (Woodcuts), Natasha Feliciano (Etching). This year’s 4th CPI is curated by Sarah McKay.

Coast Guard's Golden Age on the Silver Screen

Sunday, Apr. 5, 2015, 10:00 am

Art Exhibits/Openings

Gallery at Firehouse Square, 239 Bank Street, New London, CT , 06320

While the United States Coast Guard is often overlooked in American history, 20th century popular culture found no shortage of heroism, adventure, and romance on the decks of cutters. From coast to coast, Hollywood’s silver screen depicted Coasties saving the day: rescuing those in danger, arresting drug traffickers, chasing smugglers and protecting the nation’s ports.

After retiring from the Coast Guard in 1972, Ralph Judd collected over 500 movie posters, lobby cards and press packets which have been donated to the U.S. Coast Guard Museum. Mary-Elizabeth Pratt has curated a collection of these items allowing the public to view a sample of the collection covering the 1920’s to the 1950’s.
