Watershed Gallery will host an opening reception for their new exhibit. “Living on The Grid,” at 7pm on Saturday, March 2, 2013. The show features local and international artists expressing dynamic interpretations of the urban experience, and will run until Friday, May 3rd.
Photographer Florence Notté will show work from her “My Little Happiness” series, an intimate and poetic look at the city of Paris, which recently won an award for creativity from the French National Federation of Photography. Notté is flying in from Paris for the opening reception.
Exotic scenes and vivid colors characterize the paintings of Brazilian artist, Christine Drummond. Using the city of Rio de Janeiro as her inspiration, Drummond uses swift, strong strokes of a palette knife to capture the optimism and confidence of the Brazilian people.
Three celebrated local artists will also contribute to “Living on The Grid.” Ridgefield painter Hans Fischer blends contemporary representational imagery with the abstract – capturing patterns of light on city corners and rooftops. Fine Art Photographer Roy Weinstein creates a dreamlike impression of city life in his soft-edge photography, achieving a vintage feel through the process of photo transfer onto paper and silver foil.
Finally, the Guild’s artist-in-residence, Justin Perlman, who creates large-scale sculptures that invoke intimacy in public landscapes, brings those sensibilities to small works in stone and metal for the new show.
Watershed Gallery, which is located at 23 Governor Street, requests RSVPs for the opening reception. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org or phone 203-438-4387, if you would like to attend.
