NEW HAVEN — Only a few miles away from the Henry Sheldon Museum sits an 1800 farmhouse, bursting with Bill Brooks’ own collection of masks, statues, paintings, pottery and duck decoys — his personal folk art museum.

Brooks, executive director of the Sheldon, started collecting art in 1968 when he bought his first painting. Since then, he has spent his life in galleries, talking with artists and gleaning a unique assortment of folk and professional art.

That number is expected to climb somewhat once the final tally is completed within a month or two, said Bedard, adding, “It’s never too late to give.”

All Stampede proceeds go to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation towards research.

Editorial: Sue Minter earns nod for governor in Dem's primary

Posted on August 4, 2016 |
By Angelo S. Lynn



In the Democratic primary for governor, Sue Minter has emerged as the strongest candidate as the heat of the campaign nears the Aug. 9 vote.

Minter has been in a neck-and-neck battle with Google executive and former state legislator Matt Dunne throughout the primary, though Dunne has lost key support among some environmentalists in the past week. Meanwhile, former U.S. diplomat and state Sen. Peter Galbraith’s progressive campaign never garnered enough public support to be a serious contender.

Editorial: Scott takes the GOP field

By Angelo S. Lynn



If we were judging candidates for governor based solely on their policy positions, former Wall Streeter Bruce Lisman would best his opponent Lt. Gov. Phil Scott.

Clippings: Consider my right to not bear arms

Posted on August 4, 2016 |
By Emma Cotton



In June, a stranger handed Seven Days reporter Paul Heintz an AR-15 military-style rifle in exchange for a $500 wad of cash.
