Kopcha is the Feburary Artist of the Month

Artist and illustrator Katie Kopcha is the Southington Library February Artist of the Month. Kopcha grew up in Southington, Connecticut. She is inspired by the many people, animals, and places around her. As a child, she collected toads around her yard; she would keep them for a day, play with them, and let them go at night. Animals hold a dear place in her heart. She graduated from University of Connecticut with a BFA in Illustration. She is currently attending graduate school for a Masters in Art Therapy. Kopcha has spent a semester abroad in Florence, Italy and experienced fresco painting while seeing many historical Renaissance paintings. (And of course eating their wonderful Italian cuisines) "Leaping Through the Year", a book Katie wrote about a frog going through every month of the year.

The long vacant former Shaw's building on Queen Street will soon be the home of a new ShopRite supermarket. The owners of the Shaw's supermarket chain recently sold all the stores in Connecticut. The ShopRite in Southington will be a 60,000 squarefoot store operated by Don Drust and his family, who also own the ShopRite in Meriden. The Drusts are renovating and refurbishing the site. The announcement was a long awaited piece of good news for the plaza at 750 Queen Street, which has been vanishing over the last few years. In addi-

In addition to a broad array of groceries and fresh produce, the new store will have a fresh bake shop, meats and seafood, a full-service floral department, natural and organic products, a salad bar, ethnic specialties, oven-baked pizza, and a gourmet coffee bar among its amenities. The store also will feature the ShopRite "From Home" delivery service. Reports from the Associated Press and the Waterbury-Republican American were used in this story.
