When: Thursday, Feb. 1, through Wednesday, April 11, daily 8 a.m. to 9 p.m.

About the artist:
Denise Hartz, of Old Saybrook, brings a unique style to her paintings, saying she looks for simple, complete images that evoke the spirit of the natural world and personal experiences. “I use the simplest visual language of marks, shapes and forms. I try to make my work as personal and as universal as possible,” she states.

Hartz has exhibited in more than 90 juried group shows in New England during the past 20 years. She’s participated twice in two-person shows at the Pump House Gallery in Hartford, and in one-person shows at Demeter’s Door Gallery in Simsbury, the Dunedin Pubic Library in Dunedin, Fla., and a previous exhibit at the Health Center.

A Hartford native, she attended the University of Connecticut School of Fine Arts and is a member of the Connecticut Academy of Fine Arts and Connecticut Women Artists, Inc.
