Work from Greenwich artist Lynne Arovas will be part of the show.

The public is invited to a reception at the Bruce S. Kershner Gallery in the Fairfield Library on Aug. 23 at 4:30 to 6:30 p.m.

The show, Eye-Sights, includes the work of Howard Aaron, Lynne Arovas and Beatrice del Perugia. The artists will talk about their work at 5:30 p.m. The show runs from Aug. 16 to Oct. 5.

Mr. Aaron is a member of the Connecticut Society of Portrait Artists, Fairfield County Arts Association, Art Society of Old Greenwich and is a founder of the Easton Arts Council.

“Painting for me is a highly beneficial therapy. Since I’ve started developing my art, I’m learning more and more how to see rather than look… As for landscapes, there is so much source material to be found in Connecticut, starting in my own back yard in Easton,” Mr. Aaron said. “The fun is stumbling on a scene that says ‘Paint me’, then to enhance it into painting that would not only interest a viewer, but convey a feeling about that scene. I enjoy doing watercolor because there’s so much that can go right, even if I make a mistake.”

Ms. Arovas, a Greenwich resident, graduated with a B.A. in psychology and minor in art from Arcadia University (previously Beaver College) and has studied at the Silvermine School of Art in New Canaan. She currently works as an office administrator in Stamford. Ms. Arovas is a member of the Art Society of Old Greenwich, Greenwich Art Society and City Lights Gallery. In the past she was a member of the Women’s Caucus for Art.

Ms. Arovas’ medium is mixed media collage and she has exhibited in five solo shows and more than 50 group shows. She has won both first and second prizes for her work. She describes her work as “energy in order.”

She explains, “arranging expressive designs of nervous energy in a contained, structured way is for me a very calming and almost meditative experience. There is satisfaction placing ‘chaos’ in order, and excitement combining these contrasting elements into a dynamic composition. Emotions, nature, and color inspire me and are often the intertwining themes in my work. My goal for a collage is reached when I am finally content with the color harmony, pattern relation, and dimension created.”

The library is at 1080 Old Post Road in Fairfield. See Fplct.org or call 203-256-3155.
