MEET&GREET PRESS RELEASE
Edited Dec 7th, 2018

"The sights, sounds, and most especially, the tastes of Yuletide will abound at the Arts Alliance of Woodbury’s Quarterly Meet and Greet on Wednesday, December 12th . The event will be held at the newly renovated Good News Restaurant and Bar, with beverages and refreshments befitting both the season and the award-winning locale! All are welcome to attend, but members will receive a voucher for a complimentary drink and an appetizer that’s not only a taste treat but an edible work of art. Anyone who would like to become a member may sign up on the spot!

After convivial mingling, festive nibbles, the event which will be emceed by President of the AAW, David Bibbey, will showcase the talents of three of our members, who will be on hand to display and discuss their work:

Member artist and designer Pamela Winn finds beauty and inspiration in people, animals, and the New England countryside she is so fortunate to call home. After several years as a graphic designer/illustrator and then as art director for Fine Cooking magazine, Pamela is following her dream as a freelance artist painting watercolor portraits of pets, people, and homes. In her work she tries to capture a special moment highlighting the unique character or feel of the pets, people, and homes that she paints.

Very fitting for the evening will be to honor chef extraordinaire, AAW corporate sponsor and our host for the evening, the legendary Carole Peck is one of the original farm-to-table visionaries and a master of the culinary arts. Chef Peck is also a passionate advocate of the arts. The Good News Restaurant has presented the work of over hundreds of artists through the years, as well as hosting the inaugural dinner for the highly successful Clay Way studio tour and providing refreshments for countless local arts organization, including the AAW, the Woodbury-Bethlehem Community Music Foundation, and First Thursdays. The Good News Café opened in Woodbury in 1993, quickly garnering a reputation for the finest local ingredients and described by Zagat’s as “one of the top restaurants” in the United States. The 2018 renovation, with its brand new central bar area, marks the restaurant’s 25th anniversary.

Musician and music teacher Bill Geddes, a Woodbury resident since 1976, has been performing on trumpet for many years. Bill will perform two seasonal favorites in keeping with the festive season. He taught music in Danbury and Region 14 public schools, teaching Chorus, Orchestra, Band, Music Theory, and Music Technology. He founded the Woodbury-Bethlehem Community Music Foundation in 2005 and currently serves as president. This summer he was the music director for the Music Foundation's highly lauded run of the Steven Sondheim musical Company. Bill and his trumpet will be on hand this evening to regale guests with holiday favorites.

AAW’s quarterly “meet and greets” feature delicious food and beverages, scintillating company, and the talents of our artists, every March, June, September, and December, at 7 p.m. on the second Wednesday of the month. Past venues include the Glebe House, Flanders Nature Center, Clapp & Tuttle, The Jewelry Café, Main Street Ballet and the beautiful homes and studios of AAW members.

Created by individuals, the Arts Alliance of Woodbury is an all-volunteer, 501(c)3 organization committed to fostering the arts in Woodbury and surrounding towns.
Members include founders from the Woodbury-Bethlehem Community Music Foundation, Inc., [WBCMF]; Community Theatre at Woodbury [CTAW], Hi5netTV’s ‘First Thursdays’, Main Street Ballet, distinguished artists, sculptors, performing artists, published authors, actors and designers and most importantly, the patrons of the arts – both large and small--who want to help the arts thrive in our community. AAW’s inaugural Woodbury Arts Festival in June of 2017, which showcased 20 area fine artists, drew an attendance of 1500 people. The Festival also featured an Artisanal Market of local and Connecticut based ‘high craft’ and artisanal fare exhibitors. Their annual Arts Gala, held the 2nd Wednesday of June, offers wine, delicious food, and entertainment, and bestows the Citizen’s Award for the Arts to a member of the community whose work has an impact on the arts. To support the AAW and participate in these and other events, please become a member! We ask for annual membership contribution of $20.00 per household per year.
