      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!

      Adie Dela Cruz returns to the Hygienic for Playful Propaganda II. Also known as “The World Is My Playful Propaganda,” this exciting exhibition explores the diversity of everyone around the world. 195 different drawings of country outlines Adie produced during the year will be displayed as one big masterpiece.

      Come view 195 country shapes that will be assembled to form a world map! Dela Cruz’s illustrations range from the obvious to the subliminal and always aim to make the audience reinterpret what they are seeing each time they repeatedly look at his artworks. Immerse yourself in an imaginary and lively world of original cartoon characters and worlds.

      “My mind tends to wander and think out of the box these days, and the big irony is I also restrict my creativity within that same box,” says Adie.
