Art Opening Reception

Meet the Artist 6-9 pm

Artist Statement:
My work as a painter is an out-growth of my observations and studies of color, space, and the natural rhythms of the world.  In my art, I attempt to reflect and heighten my responses to the landscape, whether it is urban or rural, interior or exterior.  I am not interested in merely copying the landscape, but rather, emphasizing the salient features, especially color, as it is filtered through my own perceptions. I am always conscious of the interplay of light and atmosphere, of the time of day, of the passing of the seasons.

The panel of chefs and food writers will discuss 
the development of the American restaurant and cuisine and the status of Jeremiah Tower as a pioneer of the culinary style of Californian cuisine.

The Arts Council of Greater New Haven presents Where the Whole Universe Dwells at Perspectives… The Gallery at Whitney Center. Where the Whole Universe Dwells brings together five artists who balance between tangible and intangible through an innate understanding of smallness within a vast universe and the relationship between infinitesimal and cosmic.
The Arts Council will host an opening reception on Saturday, May 20 from 3 to 5 p.m. The reception will feature artists talks at 2 p.m.
The exhibition, curated by Debbie Hesse, will be on view to the public through Aug. 27, 2017, at the gallery located at 200 Leeder Hill Dr., Hamden, Tuesdays and Thursdays, 4-7 p.m., and Saturdays, 1-4 p.m. The exhibit is free and open to the public.
