The “Light Shifts” exhibition features works by Gallery One artists and celebrates the change of season and upcoming holidays with visual good cheer. Connecticut-based Gallery One represents a diverse group of established artists whose works reflect different artistic traditions. Artists include: Rosemary Cotnoir (Westbrook), Victor Filepp (New London), Karen Israel (West Hartford), Ann Knickerbocker (Old Saybrook), Paul Fitzpatrick Nager (Old Lyme), T. Willie Raney (Ivoryton), Diana Rogers (Clinton), Rick Silberberg (Ivoryton), and Jill Vaughn (Ivoryton).
Rick Silberberg sees new possibilities for creativity as the daylight hours shorten. “I gravitate toward painting in a spontaneous way and paradoxically work until it looks that way. It is a process of following my eyes and staying open to making changes or taking a new direction as the work progresses,” he said.
For artist Diana Rogers, this is a season to savor visually. “The fall landscape is energizing and a feast for our eyes and soul. As the light shifts and our days grow shorter, the color palette I use in my paintings grows bolder and brighter in response,” she noted.
Ann Knickerbocker works within the shifting rhythms of daily life. “In my abstract paintings, I work in layers, trying to let the viewer see the time passing. My art sometimes reflects objects and landscapes, but usually the colors and shapes speak for themselves and give the viewer room to develop a unique response,” she noted.
The exhibit opens on November 3 and runs through December 30 at The Space Gallery located at 1 Main Street in Chester, CT. Join the artists for the opening reception on November 4 from 5pm to 8pm. Gallery hours are Thursday through Saturday, 12pm to 5pm and Sunday, 11am to 3pm.
