      Bright. Recognizable. Satirical. Non-Stop Pop features the eclectic and unique of art Don Ledversis, Brian Johnston, and Bart Jeczmienny.

      A retired engineer by profession, and a sculptor by passion, Don Ledversis spent years working in the woodworking industry. While taking a metals class at the Rhode Island School of Design, he changed his direction for the future. With an emphasis on re-purposing found metal items the challenge becomes twofold, keep the subject simple and colorful, the metal pieces are merely the building blocks, a means to an end. Don creates one-of-a-kind pieces. By capturing the viewer’s attention with color and boldness, he beckons the viewer to look closer and become inspired to create.

      Brian Johnston is a beer brewer and artist who will present his edgy, bright, and satirical “beer art” pieces inspired by the rising popularity of the local craft beer scene started by New London-based bars such as the Social, Oasis, and Tox Brewing.

      Bart Jeczmienny is a pop artist who is drawn to science fiction and art. Fascinated by surrealistic art, especially Salvador Dali’s imagery, Bart spends his days watching various birds outside his window and following the developments of the new Moon mission from NASA. The effects of such interests are plainly visible in his expressionistic artworks that celebrate the dreams of undiscovered otherworldly landscapes.

      Using four primary colors: Cyan, Magenta, Yellow, and Black (CMYK), Connecticut-based artist James Honer presents his first solo exhibition of the year titled “Through the Lens of Printilism.” A play on words to pointillism, the term “Printilism” is a self-coined phrase he uses to describe his art style. Based on his background in printing, his artwork is all composed of dots and is intended to play tricks on the viewer’s eyes. From different distances, the dots will blend or stand out. From landscapes to cartoon-styled pieces, James Honer presents a wide range of his art.

      James Honer is a painter and paper sculptor based in Middletown, Connecticut, and North Truro, Massachusetts. James developed his approach to painting by drawing on his varied career and background in commercial printing and graphics.
