Muralist Michael Borders Artist-in-Residence at Windsor Art Center
You are invited to a reception to view the completion of the mural painted by artist Michael Borders on the Windsor bus station wall on Tuesday, September 4, at 4:30 PM. Please join us if you can.

For four weeks, beginning Monday, August 6, muralist Michael Borders will work on transforming the waiting room at the Windsor bus station into a showcase for the visual arts. The theme of the painting which will be done on canvas on the north wall of the bus station is commerce since the space sits where the train and bus lines meet. The high point of the wall is 30 ft so most of Michael’s work will be done on scaffolding. Viewers are invited to come by and watch Michael work Monday through Friday 9 AM -5 PM. The bus station is located at the south end of the Windsor Art Center, 40 Mechanic Street, Windsor.
Michael a long time resident of Bloomfield is well known in Connecticut for his large public mural projects often with a theme related to the state. You may remember his beautiful mural "Genesis of the Capital City" which was torn down, despite widespread protests, to make way for commercial development including a McDonalds. You may also be familiar with the welcoming kiosks in many of Hartford’s neighborhoods.
Michael graduated from Fisk University with a degree in art and mathematics and he holds an MFA from Howard University. The mural project is funded through a grant from the Department of Economic and Community Development.

  Paintings by SCOTT BRICHER at the Stairwell Gallery from September 8th to November 10th –reception Sept. 8th from 12 - 2

The Stairwell Gallery at Gunn Memorial Library in Washington, CT will be exhibiting the work of artist, Scott Bricher.   The exhibit from September 8th through November 10th may be viewed during normal library hours. A reception will be held September 8th from 12 to 2pm.

Scott Bricher is an artist with so many talents, it is hard to know where to begin.  He studied at Parson School of Design from 1980 – 1984 and then at the Art Students League of New York from 1987 to 1989 with the world renowned portrait painter, Nelson Shanks.  He is a portraitist, illustrator, animator, instructor and the list goes on.  His clients include PBS, Mad Magazine, Frito-Lay, Pepsi, Hasbro, Diageo and Pitney Bowes, Taunton Press and Crew Design, Inc.

He has won many awards for his interactive media, online advertising and websites and won the gold PROMAX/Broadcast Design Awards for 2008.

As a traditional painter he has achieved great success but now he has transitioned into a new technique which springs from his own creative genius.   Traditional oil painting with recent experiments using encaustic wax and paper lithograph on wood has opened a whole new world.  The paintings undergo a layering and “aging.”  Layers of transparent and semi-transparent wax give the work texture, age and mystery.

Linda Yoshizawa
   September 7-­‐29, 2012
   Artist Reception:
  Friday, September 7,  5-­‐8pm


September 7 -29, 2012
Reynolds Fine Art is pleased to present Linda Yoshizawa in her first solo exhibition at the gallery.   Linda Yoshizawa’s artwork reflects the mixing of two cultures – Japanese and American.  Using an innovative approach to printmaking, each of her monotypes are truly one-of-a-kind. Using an innovative approach to printmaking, Yoshizawa produces monotype prints by painting an image in oil on a Plexiglas plate and then rolling over it with water-soluble ink. The image is then transferred onto paper through use of an etching press. Often the prints are then cut and collaged together – a process that is very freeing for the artist. Yoshizawa’s technique requires that she draw a new image for each impression; therefore, every print is one-of-a-kind.
