Jeremy Holmes: New Sculpture

Wednesday, Feb. 21, 2018, 10:30 am
Jeremy Holmes: New Sculpture;

Art Exhibits/Openings

Heather Gaudio Fine Art, 66 Elm Street, New Canaan, CT , 06840

Heather Gaudio Fine Art is pleased to present "Jeremy Holmes: New Sculpture," the first solo exhibition of the artist at the gallery. The show will open with a public reception on February 10th, 4-6pm, and will run through March 17th.

Holmes engages the viewer with beautiful abstract three-dimensional forms created out of natural wood. Using traditional wood-working techniques, he starts by soaking 12-foot long planks to make the naturally rigid material more malleable. Improvising as he works, Holmes bends, twists and coils the slabs into graceful sinewy forms, then joins them to become stunning free-standing or wall-mounted sculptures. He stains them with color or leaves them natural with a clear resin finish. On view will be new free-standing and wall-mounted sculptures in addition to a large site-specific installation. Made of white ash, this singular 200-foot structure will activate the gallery space as it hangs suspended from the ceiling and walls. Holmes has been working with wood since earning his BFA a decade ago, and has been the subject of several solo and group exhibitions here and abroad. An important part of his artistic practice consists of making large, temporary site-specific installations such as the one he will create for the exhibition. In addition to having his work featured in various publications, Holmes has been a guest lecturer and artist in residence, and has been the recipient of numerous awards.

Heather Gaudio Fine Art specializes in emerging and established artists, offering painting, works on paper, photography and sculpture. The gallery provides a full-range of art advisory services, from forming and maintaining a collection, to securing secondary market material, to assisting with framing and installation. The focus is on each individual client, selecting art that best serves his or her vision, space, and resources. The six exhibitions offered every year are designed to present important talent and provide artwork appealing to a broad range of interests. Gallery hours are Tuesday through Saturday; 10:30am to 5:30pm; and by appointment.

Raptors & Rehabilitation: Where Birds Meet People;

Art Exhibits/Openings

Guilford Free Library, 20 Carter Drive, Guilford, CT , 06437

Opening Reception at the Guilford Free Library Saturday 2/3/2018 from 1:30 - 3:30pm for Raptors & Rehabilitation: Where Birds Meet People by Sophie Zyla. Misty, a Barred Owl and Grace from A Place Called Hope will be guest visitors at the opening.

Birds are hiding in plain sight in cities, suburbs, and the natural places our paths take us. The images of all but one of the birds of prey in this exhibit must remain in captivity due to circumstances caused mainly be encounters with humanity and/or our inventions. Despite our best efforts and medical care some do die but many are released back to the wild to continue the lives they were born to live. Some birds have a personality and disposition that allows them to become ambassadors, educators, and acquaintances of humans. As our human and animal paths cross collisions are inevitable. We have the capacity to hurt but also the ability to help. Raptors & Rehabilitation: Where Birds Meet People includes images of ambassador birds from A Place Called Hope along with information on raptors and on rehabilitation in CT.

The exhibit will be available for viewing in the gallery and meeting room of the library during their normal business hours for the month of February.

Stage/Theater

Celebrate Valentine’s Day Through March 4 with a Special “Dinner and a Show” Package from Effie’s Place & Playhouse on Park!;

Stage/Theater

Meredith Atkinson, 244 Park Rd., Hartford, CT , 06119

WEST HARTFORD - Indulge in a delicious 3-course dinner at Effie’s Place Family Restaurant (includes a glass of beer/wine) and then head up to Playhouse on Park to see Intimate Apparel by Lynn Nottage. The cost for dinner and a show is only $50 per person (tax and gratuity not included)!

Dinner at Effie's Place Family Restaurant includes your choice of: appetizer: stuffed mushroom caps, spanakopita, tossed salad or soup of the day; main course: braised lamb shank served over rice, ravioli with shrimp in a tomato-mushroom cream sauce, or chicken piccata with rice and vegetables. Dinner is served with a beverage, including beer or wine, and your choice of dessert!

Intimate Apparel is a historical drama written by two-time Pulitzer Prize winner Lynn Nottage. In 1905, Esther, an African American seamstress, supports herself by creating exquisite lingerie for wealthy Manhattan clients. When a letter arrives from a stranger, it awakens a desire within her that leads to the love that she yearned for, but it is nothing like she expected. As described by playwright Paula Vogel, "Lynn Nottage's work explores depths of humanness, the overlapping complexties of race, gender, culture and history—and the startling simplicity of desire—with a clear tenderness, with humor, with compassion."

Reservations for this “dinner and a show” special offer must be made in advance, based on availability. Simply contact John Paindiris at jcpfeta@aol.com or 860-836-9366 to secure your spot. Attending a matinee? Reverse the order by attending the show and then heading to dinner!
