You’ll see a full range of artistic expression at the Wilson Avenue Loft Artists Holiday Exhibition and 10th Anniversary Celebration, “Big Anniversary; small works”, a three day event with a public reception Friday, Dec. 1 from 6 to 8:30 p.m. and Open Studios Saturday and Sunday, December 2nd and 3rd from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. at 225 Wilson Avenue, South Norwalk, with entrance behind the building, off Ely Avenue.
Some more information about the event:
Some artists paint what they see – literally. Others paint their personal response to what they see. And still others paint what they see in their imagination. And some combine the various approaches.
Britt Bair’s compelling cows in her oil on canvas “Ladies Lunch” are not the cows of your grandmother’s pastoral paintings. These are contemporary females ready to meet and greet and show off their colorful coats! Bair became hooked on painting cows ever since she stopped to photograph them in a pasture and they immediately swarmed up to the fence for their photo op!
Nancy McTague-Stock’s “Under the Sea” paintings reflect her concern for the status of our rivers, lakes and oceans. She explores “the rhythms of our environment, unexpected juxtapositions, movement, pattern and light”. Having lived on or near the water all her life, she synthesizes what she sees with what she knows and imagines.
Lori Glavin’s abstract work “is inspired by the visual clatter of mundane places -her domestic environment and her studio where possessions are stacked, scattered, organized and misplaced”. She makes piles to gain control and find order in a world of excess data and consumer goods. In her paintings she “combines, collects and sorts, layering small bits to make an arrangement that becomes a monument to the minutiae of my daily life.
