      Event Description:
      Studio 33 Art & Frame Gallery is pleased to present the Three Friends Exhibit September 9, 2022 – November 5, 2022, featuring the maritime paintings of local artists Robert J. Hauschild 1941-2012, Phil Cutting 1934-2017, and John McGuire. We welcome all visitors to the CT Maritime Heritage Festival on Sat. Sep 9, 22 through the weekend, to our maritime themed exhibit. Robert J. Hauschild’s father was a commercial artist, as a child he was given full access to paint, paper, and brushes, his favorite watercolor and acrylic paintings would include what he knew-his early playground along a river with ferries, tugs, and lighthouses. Hallmarks of his paintings are hard edges, dramatic shadows and stark contrasts between dark and light falling upon the surface of the canvas. His work has been described as surreal and mystical in style and subject. His watercolor paintings have been reproduced on four New London Main Street posters. Phil Cutting, known as “Capt. Phil” professionally, was a radio personality and marine reporter. He loved anything to do with Long Island Sound, in his retirement he volunteered at Mystic Seaport and became an avid watercolor and pastel artist. John McGuire paints watercolor landscapes and seascapes based out of the New London – Waterford, CT area, Studio 33 carries his beautiful greeting cards featuring his watercolors of local scenes as well!

      Event Description:
      Local artist Katie Fogg has been combing through her collection of artwork, finding years of progress that at this point, “just need a loving home.” In the collection, are paintings of various sizes, techniques and subject matters. Fogg would like to surrounding communities to shed light on the idea of “letting go” and moving forward with “space and clarity.” Fogg has been teaching students of all ages over the past year, and this is an opportunity to provide more teaching space to our up and coming generation of artists. Also on view, downstairs from KFogg Studio is her student-teacher exhibit “aBStRaCT kIDz” at 308 State Street during the same hours.

      KFogg Open Studio and Abstract Kids will be open on Sunday as well, 9/18, from 12pm-4pm. Please feel free to contact Katie Fogg with any questions or inquiries at kfoggstudio@gmail.com.
