Happy Fourth of July!
A true patriot, Lisa Fielding gets completely excited with planning the ultimate Fourth of July party, where the real star of the day is oven-baked baby back ribs, finished on the grill or not.

Local Arts and Culture
In a loft upstairs from The Workshop in Litchfield, we discover work on exhibit at The Nelson Gallery. Impressive quality and diversity of artists at the annual Open Your Eyes studio tour, featuring the creative communities of Washington, Bethlehem, Roxbury, and Morris. More from Washington: Elizabeth Macdonald oil paintings at the Washington art association's Atelier sale, a reception for London-based painter Mary Ramsden at the Steep Rock Artist's Residency, landscapes from Karen Simmons at Marty's Cafe, and a Mark Mennin monumental sculpture goes in at The Park at One Green Hill. In Torrington, we find painter John Funt and photographer Gerald Incandela at Five Points Gallery.
