Art

Jane Eckert’s idea for her current group show at her gallery in Kent was simple: Bring together work by Litchfield County artists or work that has hung in county homes under the title Summer in Litchfield  County. Along the way, however, she added some personal favorites from her own holdings.

Five Captivating Artists at Davis Gallery in Hudson

Art

The expansive spaces at John Davis Gallery in Hudson currently host five solo exhibitions, the main gallery and terrific carriage house allowing room for each of the artists to inhabit their own space. Sculptor Christopher Cairns occupies the main galleries and sculpture garden with “Recognition/Remembrance,” a series of deeply felt pieces in both small and near life-size scale. The artist sees himself as working in the 7,000 -year-old tradition of sculpture, and ideas of life and death, of suffering and love always feel close to the surface.

Art Stars Shine at Gallery Night In Lakeville

Galleries

Walking from Lake­ville art gallery to gallery on a late Saturday afternoon for this year’s Art Walk was pleasanter than it has ever been. The village center is bursting with color from landscaping designed and planted by the volunteer Lakeville Community Conservancy, and you could feel a new energy around you, especially in the three imaginative exhibitions gallery owners had curated.

Robert Cronin Still Having Fun

Art

Robert Cronin’s art studio is the front room of his small Falls Village House. A single bed, institutional and spartan, occupies a corner. Everywhere else are tools and materials for making art; finished paintings are stacked neatly here and there — not too many, the rest are in other rooms he says — some ready to go to the David M. Hunt Library, just down the road, where a show of his “Imaginary Paintings” opens on Saturday, July 21.

Photographs Without Cameras

Photography: ‘Light + Dark’

An exhibit of photographs that have been made without cameras sounds like a gimmick, but “Light + Dark,” the current show at Sohn Fine Art Gallery in Lenox proves that in the hands of skilled artists it results in wonderful and unexpected work. The exhibition is small, featuring just two artists—the American photographer, Chuck Kelton and the English artist, Garry Fabian Miller—but there is much not only to consider but to reconsider here. This is a show that is radiant and gimmick-free.

Three Renowned American Artists and Their Teachers in Rockwell Exhibit

Art: ‘Keepers of the Flame: Parrish, Wyeth, Rockwell and the Narrative Tradition’

For the last decade, award winning illustrator Dennis Nolan has  immersed himself into proving that the artistic lineage that produced the Golden Age of Illustration may be traced back 500 years to the Renaissance.   What began as a slide lecture comically titled, “From Rock Wall to Rockwell,” Nolan says, “I  spun a tale about Norman Rockwell’s artistic roots, I linked him and his teachers to a centuries-old tradition of narrative painting and art instruction.” As he looked more closely he discovered it was true.

Want  to travel, raise a family, entertain friends, be engaged  and productive into your 80s and 90s and grow old with pride and even joy? In a beautiful place?
Be an artist. In northwest Connecticut.
Yes, literature brims with the angst, the isolation, the pain of many painters, poets, performers, writers and musicians pursuing a new idea and an expressive image. Some, though, seem charmed.
