Art Exhibits Fairfield County
October 6, 2015
Fairfield County’s art scene is booming, and we’re lucky to be right in the middle of it.
Not only is it fun to mix and mingle with other Norwalk residents (and those from other parts of Fairfield County), but it’s also a fantastic opportunity to snag a new piece of art from a burgeoning local artist for your apartment in Norwalk!
Here are 4 promising exhibits we recommend you check out this fall.
Amy Dolego “Through My Lens”
Where: Pequot Library - 720 Pequot Avenue, Southport, CT (The Perkin Gallery)
When: September 8, 2015 – October 7, 2015, 5:30-7:30pm (ENDING TOMORROW!)
Amy Dolego has 20 years of experience in commercial and residential design, and photography degree from the Paris Institute of Photography (Speos). And you can tell--it sets her apart from average photographers. You can see her mastery of the art of photography in every piece, whether it’s a black and white still of delicate flowers against a stark black background, or a sunset scene on the high desert. It’s no wonder Dolego’s pieces place frequently in local exhibitions. They have just the right mix of beauty and intrigue.
Pat Laspino “Orchids in the Realm of the Sublime”
Where: C. Parker Gallery - 17 E Putnam Ave, Greenwich, CT
When: September 16, 2015 – October 14, 2015 (opens 10am)
When you stroll into Pat Laspino’s [exhibit]((http://live-thedailyvoice.time.ly/event/c-parker-gallery-art-exhibition-orchids-in-the-realm-of-the-sublime/?instance_id=5573 “The Daily Voice - Pat Laspino Show”), you’ll be greeted by bright, large-scale oil paintings with amazing detail and movement of orchids. These dreamlike canvases could be the statement piece you’ve been seeking for your living room. Marvel over “60-80 layers of transparent oil color over a textural groundwork of fossilized botanical impressions,” and learn about the artists’ deeper parallels behind the life of an orchid and our own.
Nancy Judd “ReDress-Upcycled Style”
Where: Stamford Museum & Nature Center - 39 Scofieldtown Road, Stamford, CT
When: September 18, 2015 – November 1, 2015, 9am - 5:00 pm
Judd’s art is trash. Literally. And we say that in the nicest way possible--they’re the best-looking pieces of trash we’ve ever seen! Everything Judd designs is made with recycled materials, from aluminum cans to bicycle tire inner tubes. The message? Recycle. Oh, and “Trashion” is a thing now.
Peter Arguimbau “Of Light and The Sea”
Where: Geary Gallery - 576 Boston Post Rd, Darien, CT
When: October 1 - 31, Tuesday - Saturday, 9:30am - 5:00pm
Arguimbau is a Norwalk native, and it shows in his gorgeous paintings of harbors, ships, and oceans. All of his art is done in the classic Renaissance style, with oil resin glazed by gel mediums, and he actually grinds his colors from powdered pigments. Arguimbau has studied the master artists and traveled abroad for classical study in Italy, and is shows in his passion for high-quality scenes centered around the New England Harbor.
