About the Artists:
The exhibit by Glenn Affleck of Avon and Mary Lund of Harwinton is inspired by extensive travels in Italy, France, and Ireland. Tinted monochrome photographs of land, sea, village, and city scapes are displayed in handmade barn wood frames that complement each printís shadings. Abstract sculptures stitched on burlap fields feature grape vines and sea forms. These prints and sculptures are united thematically through images and impressions of Europe, and their terra tone brings a spiritual and aesthetic harmony to the exhibit.

What: Abstract Expressionist Paintings by Richard Malinsky and From the Artistís Point of View by Diane Marinaro

Where: Celeste LeWitt Gallery, UConn Health Center, 263 Farmington Avenue, Farmington

When: October 28, 2010 through February 2, 2011, daily 8 a.m. to 9 p.m.

About the Artists:
Richard Malinsky of Madison says he is influenced by the emotional gesture and physicality of abstract expressionism. Though nonfigurative, his images are derived from organic growth forms and remembered or imagined landscapes Ė allusions to water, earth, and sky. The imagery engages viewers emotionally, enticing them to focus on the feeling or essence of the representation rather than the literal one.

Painting mostly in oils, Diane Marinaroís subjects of interiors, landscapes and still lifes are vibrant with color and her use of light leads you to a new way of looking at her subjects. Marinaro lives in Avon and has exhibited her paintings in juried shows throughout Connecticut, Massachusetts and New York.
