At Southport Galleries: Abstract Women

Friday, October 20, 2017, 05:00pm - 08:00pm

compressed Abstract Women MasterPequot Library patrons are invited to a special opening of Abstract Women at Southport Galleries, 330 Pequot Avenue, Southport, CT.


Southport Galleries presents Abstract Women, a lively exhibition of contemporary paintings with selective works by six leading edge, female artists with strong local roots: Katherine Evans, Katy Ferrarone,  Ellen Hermanos, Beth Munro, Kim Romero, Helen Werngren. The exhibit runs from October 20 - November 18.  

Curatorial Director Philip Eliasoph cites the famous words of artist, Georgia O’Keeffe: 'I found I could say things with color and shapes that I couldn't say any other — things I had no words for.'  “It is in that spirit we present the talented voices of these women addressing today’s trending styles in contemporary art, with six signature variations,” continues Dr. Eliasoph.
Southport Galleries Co-Directors Sissy Biggers and Jennifer Cargill invite patrons to compare and contrast how each artist is navigating her own set of painterly approaches ranging from images of harmoniously colorful hues, delicately rendered compositions to bright interwoven angles searching beyond the frame. The exhibit surveys original artistic approaches, which reveal each artist’s visual journey and feminine points of view.
“We invite collectors, home designers and art lovers to this fall cornucopia of fresh, off-the-easel paintings," says Jennifer Cargill. "Come join us to experience these indisputably ‘now’ contemporary works."  
In collaboration with the Pequot Library’s annual Art Show week, Southport Galleries hosts this special opening reception which will benefit the library’s programs and outreach.

Southport Galleries, 330 Pequot Avenue, Southport. 203-292-6124. Open Wednesday– Saturday, 11AM – 4PM.  Always by appointment: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
