Inspired

Art meets fashion at the Ridgefield fall fashion shoot




With its sparkling wallpaper, hot-pink piano, mission-oriented mosaics, and giant found-object chandelier, the Prospector Theater is a work of art in and of itself. Because of this, we chose the Prospector as the setting for our fall-fashion feature—profiling six artists who either live or exhibit in Ridgefield. We selected a piece from each artist and then worked with them and local shops to select outfits that were inspired by their art—either the theme, color, or subject matter.

Colored Lines / Antonio Muñoz is a visual artist who transforms traditional silhouettes into bold and whimsical pieces for interiors by infusing them with lively designs and colors. He is currently the co-creative director at the Ridgefield Guild of Artists. His outfit is inspired by the fun feel and geometric patterns of his silhouettes. He is wearing a Robert Graham sport shirt ($198) and Joe’s jeans ($225), available at Mitchells of Westport, a Tommy Bahama fedora ($60), available at Hutton’s, and a Garmin Vivoactive Smartwatch ($299.99), available at the Ridgefield Bicycle Company, Danbury Road, Ridgefield.

Living Jewel / Lessley Burke is founder and owner of The Guilded Lynx, a jewelry and metal-arts studio and school on Main Street. Burke is herself a jewelry designer, goldsmith, and enamellist—fusing opaque and transparent glass to metal to create beautiful and indeed unique jewelry, drawing inspiration from the colors and forms found in nature. Her outfit is inspired by the balance of form and function found in her work. She is wearing a Kay Celine blouse ($94), Elliott Lauren jeans ($168), Paparazzi suede fringe jacket ($168), Cowboysbelt rhinestone belt ($85), scarf (shown on the cover, $48), Uno de 50 brown and silver necklace ($219), Uno de 50 bracelet ($185), all available at Lyn Evans, Main Street, Ridgefield; and her own original necklace.

On the Dot / Rhonda Gentry is a colorist oil painter with a background in fine art, a B.A. in art and architecture history, and an associate’s degree in interior design. She expresses her varied interests through paintings that are abstract and loose, and her own outfit, inspired by the vivid colors and patterns of her work. She is wearing a Van Klee 3/4 shrug ($65), Allen Allen tunic ($71), patterned scarf ($46), which she purchased from Lyn Evans, Main Street, as well as a Kristina Collection purple bracelet ($65) and necklace ($48), Erica Zap bracelet ($75), and Rain earrings ($12), available at Purple Frog, and a Monserat De Lucca handbag ($240), available at Olley Court, Main Street, Ridgefield.

A Real Pop / Michelle Fisher is a pop and abstract artist who primarily works with oil and acrylics. She combines her passion for art and fashion by manufacturing leggings, skirts, and other accessories bearing high-resolution images of her original paintings and sculptures. Her outfit is inspired by this blend of eye-popping artwork and chic fashion. She is wearing a pair of her original artwork, Michelle2sday leggings, and a Nantucket, Isobel and Cleo 100-percent cashmere wrap ($325), Claridge + King ribbed tank ($50), Horn brass necklace ($80), Horn bangles ($200), and Miguel Ases earrings ($240), available at Olley Court, Main Street, Ridgefield.

Stone Groove / Cathleen Newsham is a mosaic artist and co-owner of Modern Mosaic Arts, a company that designs and installs distinctive, custom mosaics for clients. Cathleen began her career as a broadcast designer, and she credits that experience with her ability to utilize dramatic lighting in her mosaics. Her outfit is inspired by the disparate textures and contrast between bright and dark seen in her work. She is wearing a Label and Thread knit sweater ($242), Lilla P oversize shirt ($84), J Brand jeans ($189), Évocateur disc necklace ($238), all available at SheShe, and a Big Buddha beaded clutch ($80) and Dline hoop earrings ($85), available at Turkey Ridge, Bailey Avenue, Ridgefield.

Good Shapes / Claudia Schattman is a mosaic artist and co-owner of Modern Mosaic Arts. Schattman considers herself a hunter-gatherer, and her affinity for found objects is visible in her art. Schattman and Newsham constructed the fireplace mosaic in the Prospector together, addressing the theme of “infinite possibility.” Her outfit is inspired by the variety of geometric shapes found in her mosaics. She is wearing a Casting tunic ($152), Ale Jab crop jeans ($225), FS/NY ballet flats ($200), Paolo Angelucci handbag ($295), Évocateur cuff ($348), available at SheShe; Zoë Comings earrings ($75), available at Turkey Ridge, on Bailey Avenue.
