What’s Happening in Wilton This Weekend

WILTON, Conn. – A Trackside Teen Center concert, a poetry event and the Wilton High School soccer team’s first scrimmage are some of the events planned for this weekend in and around Wilton.

Friday

Willpowerless at Trackside Teen Center: 7 p.m. Join Willpowerless at the Trackside Teen Center for a concert. Also on stage will be Cometa and Infinity Project. Trackside Teen Center, 15 Station Road.

Saturday

“Poetry in Motion — Rewind, Pause, Fast Forward” at Wilton Library: 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Poetry in Motion is an annual program for teens in grades 6-12. This year’s theme is "REWIND, PAUSE, FAST FORWARD." Students are invited to submit original poems (serious or humorous; short or long) about the past, present and/or future. Approximately 35 poems will be selected for a two-performance event in March at the library. Poems will be paired with art, music and/or dance for the live performances, as well as published in a commemorative book. Submit poems to teenpoetry@wiltonlibrary.org by Oct. 15. For more information, call Susan Lauricella at (203) 762-3950 ext. 243. Wilton Library, 137 Old Ridgefield Road.

Sunday

The Silvermine School of Art will have its faculty show daily through Sept. 16 at Sara Victoria Hall. Showcasing the current works of the distinguished artists/teachers of the Silvermine School of Art, this exhibition represents every style and medium, including painting, drawing, printmaking, photography, mixed media, sculpture, ceramics, jewelry and silversmithing.

Full Tilt exhibit at Silvermine Arts Center: 1-5 p.m. Bob Gregson’s "Full Tilt," begs the question of being off-kilter or askew. The walls of the Vassos Gallery are filled with plywood constructions, all or parts of which are tilted, which visually energizes the space. The floor space is filled with maquettes for sculptures with panels that lean to the side. Although Gregson's pieces are thoughtfully planned and solidly geometric, he undermines his works with panels that can be rotated and mirrors that extend the edge of the picture plane. This is key to the creative tension. He further subverts his work by teasing the viewer into actively playing with the work by attracting them with color to turn panels or play hide and seek through the holes in his sculpture. Silvermine Art Gallery, 1037 Silvermine Road, New Canaan.
