The “Winterlude” exhibition features works by Gallery One artists and celebrates the beauty of the quiet season. Winter’s arrival in New England invites creativity as the artists turn to their studios to explore and expand their artistic vision. 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), Michael Fanelli (Clinton), Ann Knickerbocker (Old Saybrook), Paul Fitzpatrick Nager (Old Lyme), T. Willie Raney (Ivoryton), Diana Rogers (Clinton), Rick Silberberg (Ivoryton), and Jill Vaughn (Ivoryton). 

“During this season, the landscape becomes a dramatic, monochromatic and moody setting for photography,” said Victor Filepp. “The long shadows and waning light create abstractions in nature and in everyday objects and structures,” he added.  

“The oblique light of winter is magical, rendering textures in the landscape that are not always evident at other times of the year,” noted Michael Fanelli. “This is especially true in the woodlands with branches stripped bare revealing the structure of the trees. Dormant energies can be felt, like the warmth of the sun deep in the forest,” he said.

Diana Rogers sees renewed possibilities for creativity during winter. “The air is crisp and infused with warm, bright light. Nature’s color palette is subtle, and shapes are simplified inviting discovery for landscape painting,” she said. 

The exhibit opens on January 6 and runs through February 26 at the La Grua Center located at 32 Water Street in Stonington, CT. Join the artists for the opening reception on Friday, January 6 from 5pm to 7pm. Gallery hours are Wednesday, Friday, and Sunday from 1pm to 4pm and other times by appointment.
