STREET CHIC IS TOTALLY COOL ! What do Bill Healy, David Holzman and C. Dianne Zweig have in common? They are three area artists who are bringing their offbeat art to Bodytalk Boutique for a sizzling summer show which features an evening of quirky, edgy, spontaneous original art along with a playful and stylish summer collection of contemporary fashion. This exciting and off the wall indoor and outdoor event takes place at Bodytalk Boutique, 21 East Main St., Avon 860-678-7855 on
on June 4th, 2015, 5:30-8:00.
Bodytalk Boutique has just celebrated 30 years of featuring fashion forward apparel and is pleased to showcase three unique artists who work very differently but yet share a common passion for offbeat style, bold color and spontaniety. C. Dianne Zweig, who organized this Street Chic art show, is an Avon artist specializing in Abstract Mixed Media inspired by Mid Century designs. She has a full time studio (9B) at The Farmington Valley Arts Center in Avon, CT. Bill Healy, a lover of pop culture and nostalgia is widely known for his Metal Men robots created out of vintage advertising tins and old metal appliance parts. His robots can be found in many museum collections. Bill is also a oainter cranking out bold figurative graffiti style paintings which remind you of a combo of Folk Art and Outsider Art. David Holzman, an art educator at Simbury Public Schools and Central Connecticut State University leaves the real world each day to escape into his home art studio where he creates paintings described as surreal and suggestive of spontaneous expression. His carved wood reliefs and paintings are edgy,quirky and exciting. Zeb Mayer a gifted young artist who has inherited a skilled and talented
hand from his father Mercer Mayer the famed children's book author (over 300 books) and illustrator.
Street art is thought of as art created in public places. True to the objective of involving the community in the art experience, Bodytalk is planning some outdoor art experiences such as a giant mural which visitors will be encouraged to paint, draw and add their marks to. There will also be other artsy surprises, music and refreshments.
Enjoy the coloroful ride as Dianne takes you along to some of her favorite galleries, studios, events, shows, antique shops, markets, Schmooze about antiques, collectibles, retro, art, vintage, kitsch, lifestyle, trends and more.
