The “ARxT” exhibition features new works by Gallery One artists and celebrates the positive catalyst of art on resilience and well-being. Connecticut-based Gallery One represents a diverse group of established artists whose works reflect different artistic traditions. Artists include: Victor Filepp (New London), Ann Knickerbocker (Old Saybrook), Molly McDonald (Branford), Paul Fitzpatrick Nager (Old Lyme), T. Willie Raney (Ivoryton), Diana Rogers (Clinton), Rick Silberberg (Ivoryton), and Jill Vaughn (Ivoryton).
 
For artist Diana Rogers, creating art made in nature sustained her during these challenging times. “My paintings express the healing power of being outdoors with Mother Nature using a vibrant color palette,” Rogers noted. “Recent studies have found that viewing art such as landscapes and seascapes can be restorative and calming,” she said. 
 
“The pandemic settled down on all of us invisibly as it became our new reality,” artist Ann Knickerbocker explained. “While cloistered at home, I let my paint brush and palette knife search for what I imagined would be the world post-pandemic. The works in the exhibit express the colors rushing forward like a window being opened to let the light in once again,” she added.
 
Jill Vaughn’s work was inspired by exploring nature up close during trips made before the pandemic ranging from the U.S. heartland to Brazil and Argentina. “My work weaves personal and environmental concerns together to draw attention to our actions and our planet. I believe we are all interconnected and can be rejuvenated by the healing powers of nature,” Vaughn explained.
 
The exhibit opens to the public on May 15 and runs through June 12 in the Mill Gallery at the Guilford Art Center located at 411 Church Street in Guilford, CT. Gallery hours are Wednesday through Friday noon through 4pm and Saturday, 10am to 4pm. For more information, visit the Gallery One website at www.galleryonect.com or galleryonect@earthlink.net.
