In the spirit of community and celebration of local artists, the popular restaurant, Pearl at Longshore launched a gallery space this May. Named the Gallery@Pearl, in acknowledgment of Westport’s rich heritage of artistic talents, the Gallery opened May 2nd, with a show featuring local photographer Janet Samuels. The Gallery is the brainchild of Cathy Colgan, former arts events producer for the Westport Downtown Merchants Association (WDMA) that produces the Fine Arts Festival and Art About Town. While working on these events for WDMA, Cathy developed a deep appreciation for the depth of talented artists in the community, and their desire to show their work in varied venues. Pearl was happy to make Cathy’s vision materialize with the active help of owners Lois & Marc Backon and owner/manager Antonio Ninivaggi. Pearl strives to not only bring a quality dining experience to Westport, but to also support the community in various ways. Hosting local artists and providing a venue for them to display and sell their work is one such way. So far, Gallery@Pearl has exhibited the work of Nancy Landauer, Sholeh Janati, Janet Samuels, Elizabeth Marks, and Dale Najarian - the last three shows curated by Cathy Colgan. The next opening on 11/14 will feature abstract paintings by Laura Pflug.

Executive Director: Maggie McIntire

The Darien Historical Society is dedicated to collecting, preserving and exhibiting materials of local historical value, and focuses on educating the community about Darien’s heritage. The Society operates the 18th-century Bates-Scofield Homestead, which includes an 18th-century saltbox museum, a spacious barn exhibit gallery, herb garden, resource library and historical archives.  In addition to collecting and maintaining significant collections of 18th century local artifacts, documents, and books, the Society also owns significant wardrobe and quilt collections. The Society provides community access to these primary resources through exhibitions, lectures and educational programs. Educational tours of the Museum are offered during office hours, and the town’s elementary students visit the Homestead during a field trip in the third grade. The DHS Library contains more than 10,000 books, documents and photographs covering the history of Darien, Fairfield County, Connecticut and New England, and the genealogy of Darien and Fairfield County families. It includes hundreds of rare books, including four from colonial Darien resident Moses Mather’s personal library. The archives contain thousands of original manuscripts and printed materials from the early 18th through the mid-20th centuries, offering fascinating insights into life in the town, and illustrating the town’s evolution from colonial farming village to prosperous metropolitan suburb. See the DHS website, Facebook page and Twitter feed.

Connecticut now has its 2-Year budget and the CT Community Nonprofit Alliance ("The Alliance") has issued its Arts & Culture Related Budget Implementer Analysis. See also its Budget Analysis (pages 13-14 for arts and culture). The Arts Commission (Office of the Arts) was reduced by 3%. The Community Investment Act (CIA) was cut by $5M. Two key points from The Alliance's analysis:
● The budget maintains line-item funding for Arts and Culture programs but makes significant cuts to many of the line items.
● The budget increases funding to three Tourism Districts, but eliminates Quinebaug.
Here are some key points from the extensive analysis by the Office of Legislative Research (OLR) of the 881 pages of budget implementer language (full analysis here). 
● Creation of a Tourism Fund: capitalized by transferring to it 10% of the hotel (Room Occupancy) tax (❡637 & 639). All arts and culture funding (from FY19) will be taken from this fund.
● 2-Year Moratorium on Bond Proceeds for Artwork in State Buildings: Currently at least 1% of state bond proceeds must be spent on artwork for state building projects. The is budget prohibits this spending between Jan 1, 2018 and Jan 1 2020. (❡214)
● Moratorium on Film and Digital Media Tax Production Credits - restores earlier moratorium - but does not apply to those productions that conduct at least 25% of filming in a CT facility that receives at least $25 million in private investment. (❡626)
● NonProfit Collaboration Incentive Grant Program: Eliminates the requirement for the OPM to inform the community of the availability of funding and to invite funding proposals. This program provides grants to nonprofits for infrastructure costs related to the consolidation of programs and services resulting from the collaboration of two or more organizations. Note that while arts & culture organizations are eligible, their collaboration must include a human service organizational partner. In addition, the human service organization must submit the proposal.) (❡140)


Courtesy, Americans for the Arts
The Tax Bill, H.R. 1, proposes to overhaul the tax code in significant ways, many of which would affect all nonprofits. 
1. Charitable tax deduction:Included only for itemizers and severely limited.
Americans for the Arts opposes the current proposal for reducing itemization. The bill retains the current tax deduction for gifts to charities for people who itemize, however it restricts the ability to itemize. About 30% of taxpayers itemize. Under the bill, only an estimated 5% would still itemize and be eligible for the charitable tax deduction. Thus, 95% of taxpayers would no longer be taking a charitable tax deduction, resulting in a decrease of $13 billion annually to nonprofits.
2. Historic Tax Credit: Proposed repeal
The historic tax credit is a widely used redevelopment tool, written into the tax code three decades ago and widely used for redevelopment of cities, towns, and rural communities across the country. Since 1981, the credit has leveraged more than $131 billion in private investment, created more than 2.4 million jobs, and preserved more than 42,000 historic buildings.
3. Artist-Museum Partnership Act (H.R. 1830 and S. 1174): Not included.
The Artist-Museum Partnership Act would allow artists to take an income tax deduction for the fair market value of their work when donating to nonprofit collecting institutions. Artists are currently specifically excluded while other collectors take the deduction, able only to deduct the cost of materials. The Artist-Museum Partnership Act would fix this inequity and allow more works of living artists to be accessible to the public.
4. Self-created property: Proposed repeal for compositions and copyrights.
Repeal of option to treat musical compositions and copyrights in musical works as a capital asset. Read More...

A recent Wild Apricot blog featured a guest post by Amanda Kaiser (that first appeared on the GuideStar blog) on the issue of bringing young professionals into our organizations. Here are some extracts from Young Professionals Are Not Joining Associations, But Not for the Reasons We Think. For the complete article, click hereShe starts by commenting on  the graying of our associations. This expression refers to the worrying trend that the average age of members in most associations is increasing. This is concerning because we need a stable pipeline of members at all stages of their careers. We could blame social media in that it enables young professionals to network without us. Or we could blame Google. Quick searches give them answers to their questions so why read the association’s articles? What about the change in public perception? We hear that people just do not join anymore. However, in my research, I found that the reason young professionals do not join is because they did not know about the association. Or if they knew about the association, they did not know it was for them. Or if they did know the association was for them, they did not join because they did not see value. And this is the key. The decision to join is heavily linked to value. Does your organization provide value for young professionals? Are we marketing that particular value in our member’s words? When associations have a hard time attracting young professionals the answer is likely in the value we are providing.  While joining is linked to value, engaging links to member experience. When someone tries to engage and it does not go well, they will not engage again. Because they are not engaging, they will not renew. Organizations who are successfully attracting younger members are focused on providing the value that young professionals want and need. These associations also work hard curating the types of new member experiences that warmly welcome young members and help them feel an immediate sense of belonging.   Read the whole article here.
