Visit: Mosaic Impressions
Mosaic art dates back to Mesopotamia and I’m always fascinated when I see new emerging mosaic artists. Beth Goulet is one of those artists. With an affection for painting, she responds to color and light. Her pieces are unique and she creates personalization with each one. With no thought out plan, her designs carry a life of their own. See for yourself!
A memory and a moment in time. The 911 Memorial museum is not only moving it’s peaceful. The sublevels are expansive revealing loss of massive architecture surrounded by lives perished. Photos, videos, missing signage and items found and destroyed are displayed. The 2 reflecting pools echo with solace. With another anniversary approaching this week it’s hard not to stop and remember where you were and possibly what you may have lost. Reflect today for history has etched itself.
Wood you? YES! These lovely natural designs created by Karen Stackow are just that. Starting her concepts from a single sign that grew into necklaces, garden art to so much more. Using cedar and birch to name a few, these organic pieces feature trees, cows, garden wording. Stop and emerge yourself into her world of natural art, you’ll be hooked!
The Hygienic Galleries related to Hygienic Art is home to many varieties of art. Formally a 24-hour restaurant, today it incorporates theatre, a learning academy and fine art. The building has hosted a history of art shows that dates back to the 70s. Now a landmark for artists co-op, visit this gem in the heart’beat’ of New London, CT. What a great find for a great city that supports all the arts. Bravo!
