Twelve area artists are featured in this unusual group exhibition that explores the meaning of an anonymous antique photo album.
According to Vanaria’s curatorial statement, “The artists and writers participating in Missing Links were asked to create their own stories and interpretations based on an anonymous early-20th century photo album found at a flea market. The unidentified materials, separated from their original context, have become a springboard for new narratives.”
Catherine Vanaria is Chair of the Art Department and an Assistant Professor of Photography at Western Connecticut State University. She co-owns Connecticut Photographics and Still River Editions in Danbury, CT.
The artists are: Chris Durante (Redding), Jim Felice (Danbury), Gene Gort (West Hartford), Brigid Guertin (Danbury), Lys Guillorn (Shelton), Diane Zaleta Hassan (Danbury), Stacey Kolbig (New Fairfield), Victor Pasquale (Mount Kisco, NY), Lori Robeau (Torrington), Elyse Shapiro (Norwalk), Catherine Vanaria (New Fairfield), and Andrea Zimmermann (Newtown).

Stanley Bielen’s still life paintings are as much an exploration of paint as a medium as they are depiction of their subjects. Using a wide brush or palette knife on small panels we see can the process of constructing a painting. Bielen notes about his own work: “The attraction of the visible world and the attraction of artist materials, in my case oil paints, is what has guided my whole working life. The pleasure of seeing expressed through the medium of oil paint. The subject matter has not changed however; my approach to my materials constantly evolves.
