VIEWS OF NEW ENGLAND, OPENS AT THE ORANGE TOWN HALL
Views of New England, an exhibit of watercolors by Orange resident Rosemary Benivegna will be held during the months of May and June, 2013 at the Orange, CT Town Hall Gallery, 617 Orange Center Road.
An opening reception will take place on Wednesday, May 8 from 5 - 7 pm.
For this exhibit, subject matter is divided into three categories; assemblages of traditional New England architecture, transformed into simplified, dramatic compositions expressing a nostalgic remembrance of them; candid glimpses of people in exterior settings, which may suggest a story for the observer, based upon personal experiences; and emotionally charged landscapes of saturated colors, that express a mood rather than depicting reality.
The exhibit can be viewed during Town Hall business hours, Mon.-Fri. 8:30 AM-4:30 pm. For more information contact the Gallery Chairperson at 203-795-4970.
