Beginning Jan. 10: Greenwich artist part of new show

Paul Larson of Greenwich is one of eight newly elected members of Art/Place, one of the oldest artist cooperatives in Connecticut.

Mr. Larson’s work will be featured in Winter Works: Mostly White, a new Art/Place exhibition scheduled to run from Jan. 10 through Feb. 23, with a public reception Sunday, Jan. 13 from 3 to 5 p.m.

As the new year begins, Art/Place is celebrating the new energy provided by the new members, who were elected by a jury of artists peers, as well as its 30th anniversary and its recently acquired new gallery space at 70 Sanford Street in Fairfield, in a building shared by the Fairfield Theatre Company.

The artists will discuss their work at a Brown Bag Lunch to which the public is invited on Tuesday, Feb. 12 at noon.

The new total of 22 members is comprised of painters, printmakers, photographers and mixed media artists. Martha Reinken of Greenwich is already a member of this group.

A lifelong resident of Greenwich, Mr. Larson describes his abstract expressionistic paintings as a process of finding what has been lost or forgotten and bringing the obscure to awareness.

“My intent is to explore the mystery of perceived realities, share insights and hope viewers may discover something familiar to their world as well,” he said.

The exhibit’s theme, inspired a variety of subjects including landscapes, the winter solstice, a wedding, an old mission church in San Antonio, Texas, a winter butterfly and works prompted by The Tempest.

Art/Place Gallery is open Thursday through Saturday from noon to 4 p.m. and during special performances at the Fairfield Theatre Company. For more information call 203-292-8328 or 203-374-9720 or visit Artplace.org.
