Lori DuBois – Artist

October 13, 2016 – January 12, 2017
Lori DuBois focuses on well-balanced texture and refinement in many of her unique portrayals.  Primarily using acrylics, she is known for her signature depictions of the sea, earth, and ever-changing skyline.
Lori’s highly regarded Natural Elements Series introduces a blend of realistic and abstract views of nature and movement.  In addition, many of her exhibitions feature unique abstractions as a portrayal of well-balanced texture and refinement.  Her acrylic collections are also well known for capturing the essence of the sea, earth and ever changing skyline.
“How fortunate we are to have nature’s symphony of color and subjects as a backdrop for our lives. Within each day, no matter the time or season, the sky is an open canvas of infinite and perfected color and formation; we only need take the time to notice.”

Photographer – Roy Weinstein

As professional photographer, and member of the National Press Photographers Association for many years, Roy Weinstein has expanded his talent into new creative images and techniques including Polaroid emulsion transfers and limited edition photo silkscreens.
“From a creative point of view, image transfers are appealing because they offer a way to individualize and further personalize photographs. The image takes on a fine art, vintage look similar to an old fresco.”
Roy specializes in fine art, portrait, fashion, and editorial photography.  His fine art photography is similar to impressionist-style paintings and have been published in magazines and newspapers including the New York Times, Woman’s Wear Daily, W Magazine, Newsday, and Travel/Holiday and many other publications throughout the country.

Harbor Moods – Photographer Tom Kretsch

The opening will be on Thursday August 11th from 5:30pm-8:00pm
August 11th – October 7th
 
From the colorful boats in Nice Harbor, to the hard scrabble shores of Newfoundland, to the rugged coast of Maine, and docks along the shores of CT, Tom Kretsch has followed his passion for observing life by the harbor. In this photographic exhibition a collection of images created over many years of observing life near the edge of the harbor will be featured.
From the abstract to a graphic use of color to very simple mood provoking images, Tom’s exhibit will present his impressions as seen at many beautiful harbors both near and far.
“I am always seeing so many beautiful shapes, colors and moods as I travel along the docks and the shoreline by the harbor.   The colors, reflections, textures and shapes have given me a great tapestry of material to create this body of work.”

Geisha 2 by Heidi Lewis Coleman

Rockwell Art and Framing of Wilton

Heidi Lewis Coleman

May 17th – August 1st
Heidi Lewis Coleman is an abstract artist whose work reflects an ongoing exploration into the aesthetics of using language in art. She creates mixed media pieces and steel sculpture which incorporate her own automatic, abstract writing. Originally, Colman invented languages were painted on paper, cut out and then applied to a painted canvas. As the work has evolved, she has continued to develop new characters by deconstructing and reconstructing her original text, creating languages which are visually richer and more complex.
“For me, the languages have an ancient, almost mystical quality. I believe that because my artwork communicates in the abstract, individual viewers are not forced to translate it specifically, allowing them to connect with the energy of each piece in ways that are personal and unique.”
Coleman studied art at Parsons and the New York School of Design in NYC.  She is a juried member of the National Association of Women Artists, the Women’s Caucus for Art and the Silvermine Guild of Artists.  Coleman is an award winning artist who has exhibited widely in galleries and museums across the country.

Rebirth Same Soul by Elise Black

Rockwell Art and Framing of Westport

What Comes To Be – Elise Black

Elise’s vibrant paintings, assemblages and sculpture show the range of her work and the effortless transition from one media to the next…often incorporating the use of multimedia in each piece.  “What Comes to Be” is a reference to that magical state where the work takes on a life of its own seemingly without deliberate thought on the part of its creator.

Amy Kaplan

January 28, 2016 – April 28, 2016
Rockwell Art and Framing of Westport will be exhibiting the work of landscape artist Amy Kaplan. Her paintings capture, through observation and reaction, what Amy calls the “emotional sense of place.” Amy explains, “I am fascinated with the pause between moments, the space in between, the heartbeat of time after something has happened, and before it begins. In those moments I feel the rhythms of things larger than myself, the echoes of the past informing the possibility of the future. I invite you to do the same as you view my work; to linger in the pause, and feel the motion beneath the stillness.”

Tranquility by John Perrone
Sea Splendor by Angelo Perrone

Rockwell Art and Framing of Ridgefield

Angelo Perrone and John Basil Perrone

February 20th – April 23rd
Angelo Perrone has been painting in mixed media for the last 50 years. His earlier impressionistic landscape paintings serve as a visual vehicle to transport you to another time and place. In the past few years, Angelo has been experimenting with new styles of art; painting in an abstract style composing of graphical collages of shape, line and color.
Angelo grew up in Harlem, NY. He was educated at the High School of Music and Art (LaGuardia High School) and then at Cooper Union Art School in New York City.  He received a BFA in Fine Arts. He was also awarded a scholarship to study painting at Oxford University in Oxford, England.  After his studies, Angelo pursued a career as a book designer and Art Director for Select Editions (Condensed Books) at Reader’s Digest, where he spent over 35 years.
Angelo has been part of countless exhibits throughout the years. He has exhibited with the Wilton Arts Council and the Kent Art Association, as well as many other galleries in Connecticut and elsewhere. Most recently his work was on display at the Gunn Memorial Library in Washington, CT and the Underground Gallery in Canton, CT. Angelo’s paintings are part of many private collections in the United States and abroad.
John Basil Perrone grew up in Wilton, CT. After graduating Wilton High School he continued his art studies at Visual Arts in NY, and then at CT Institute of Art in Greenwich, CT. After his studies, John pursued a career as a freelance designer where he used his talents in designing signs, posters, murals, graphics and 3-D architectural model building. Eventually his visual imagery found an outlet in abstract contemporary painting. John’s paintings are mood evoking abstract nature studies.  Besides his love of color, he is fascinated by texture. His use of different surfaces, such as canvas and wood, produce various textural elements. John uses mixed media acrylic, oils, and loves to mix matte finishes with glossy overtones. He has exhibited in Connecticut for over ten years

White Over Orange by Gregg Welz

Rockwell Art and Framing of Wilton

Gregg Welz

Gregg Welz, a lifelong resident of Norwalk, explores the grid by intricately folding pieces of paper into repetitive patterns of color and cast shadow. After an art and design education at Pratt Institute, he worked in many creative fields including illustration, advertising, art restoration, and framing design.
His current works are called Paper Cuts. As a conceptual artist, his imagination is influenced by the geometry of the environment, both natural and man-made. His contemporary style lends itself to a Minimalist approach that does not fall short of mesmerizing details.

Spring Fountain by Cindi Mullins

Rockwell Art and Framing of Ridgefield

Inspired by Ridgefield – Paintings by Cindi Mullins

November 21st – February 6th
Ms. Mullins has been a resident of Ridgefield, CT for 30 years and so it’s apt that she has been Inspired by Ridgefield, which is a fitting title of her new show. Inspired by Ridgefield is a body of work depicting only scenes from Ridgefield, such as, the Cass Gilbert Fountain, the little water trough on Route 35, and a lovely landscape from the Ridgefield Stream that runs by the Recreation Center’s walking path. Ms. Mullins expresses a realistic style on some paintings, while others are more abstract.
Cindi Mullins, an award-winning Connecticut painter, enjoys painting a range of subjects. Drawn to landscapes, still life and “closely cropped” florals, she paints au plein air or in her studio. Her work has a blueprint of reality transmuted by her own sensibility and creative decisions. Whether painting abstractly or staying close to natural scenes, she infuses her own energy and invites the viewer to engage in their own experience.
Ms. Mullins’ painting roots run deep as she is the great, great granddaughter of renowned Hudson Valley River School painter Aaron Draper Shattuck and, of the same school, the great, great grand niece of Samuel Colman.  Currently, she sits on the board of the Ridgefield Guild of Artists, as Secretary and Co-Creative Director. Ms. Mullins is an accepted juried member of the National Association of Women Artists in NYC as well as a member of the New Canaan, CT Carriage Barn Arts Center, the CT Fairfield County Plein Air Painters and various other organizations.

Hans Fischer

September 12, 2015 – November 21, 2015
Rockwell Art and Framing of Ridgefield exhibits the artwork of Hans Fischer. Born in Holland, raised in Harrison NY, Hans has now lived in Ridgefield, CT for many years and maintain my studio here. For Hans, being an artist quickly evolved into careers in industrial design, interior architecture, graphics design, art direction and finally corporate communications and management. His love for art finally led him to concentrate, full time, on painting for the last decade.
“My approach to painting basically explores blending contemporary representational imagery with the abstract. The goal is to visually merge those styles by utilizing a mix of media, texture, color, and strong composition – to capture the sense of a place through its color and light.”

Patricia Lambert Photography – Tools

Archival Digital Prints – Summer 2015
The portfolio called Tools makes a statement, not only about the design of the subject, but also about people who spend their lives working with tools and machinery. As Roger Shattuck, critic, poet and essayist, says in a catalog commentary referring to these images: “Someone was here, just a moment ago, watching and working”. The subject, the design and the connection between past and present are central to these images.
