Hygienic Art

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!

Valerie Bretl

Medium: Mosaic

Valerie is living my dream!

Not only is a she a seasoned artist with awards and accomplishments, she owns a gallery to display her creations…  Her gallery, Mosaic Arts  is under the ‘Gallery’ tab.

After meeting and visiting with Valerie I am instantly drawn to her work.  The medium, Mosaic is one that rarely comes about with natural stones, ceramics, tile, fragment peices and a whole lotta color to boot.  She creates in both the traditional ‘square’ or ‘regtangular’ space but then creates ‘outside’ the space in ‘circles’ and ‘oblong’ shapes.  The subjects range from nature; flowers, shorelines to creatures, portraits and her latest ‘butterfly’ mixed with nautical themes.  Her studio is in the rear of the Gallery were magic is happening…
