Anita Healy’s First Solo Show

 “Breathe”

June 3 through July 22 in Gunn Memorial Library Stairwell Gallery

Reception June 17, 12p-2p

Gunn Memorial Library announces the opening of “Breathe,” the first solo show by local painter Anita Healy.

“’Just breathe Neetie.’ Those were my mother’s words to me throughout my childhood as I battled asthma,” says Healy explaining the show’s title. “So, what does my asthma and the tight living quarters of my childhood have to do with my art?” asks Healy who grew up with five sisters in a Naugatuck apartment.  “Everything! When selecting landscapes, I seek out locations that are broad and open, letting in air and light. They are places where you can fill your lungs with clean, crisp, rejuvenating air.”

Healy is a graduate of the University of Connecticut and holds a Masters degree from Fairfield University. She spent a fulfilling career in education as a teacher, guidance counselor and middle school principal. Since 2006, she has studied with Patricia Keville Fogel at the Washington Art Association and with Cape Cod Master Plein Air painter Rosalie Nadeau.
