Heather Scofield’s “Sans Walls” Exhibit Opens
July 29 in Gunn Memorial Library Stairwell Gallery
Reception July 29 – 12 to 2pm
A dazzling new collection of New England landscapes by noted artist Heather Scofield will be on display at the Gunn Memorial Library’s Stairwell Gallery in Washington, CT from July 29 through September 9. There will be an opening reception for the artist on Saturday, July 29 from 12 to 2 PM.
Scofield’s paintings have been described as kinetic and bold, vibrating with color and movement. “I love to apply color thickly,” she says. “I’m not afraid to break aesthetic conventions.” Her influences include the Impressionists as well as Thomas Hart Benton and Charles Burchfield.
Even though Scofield grew up in an urban/suburban setting near Cleveland, Ohio her paintings are mostly of rural areas in Connecticut and Maine where she has lived for 20 years. “The landscapes I am intrigued by are full of color and light, of lines and shadows and of sky,” she points out. “I am especially drawn to the sculptural shapes and lines and varied colors of all trees.”
This exhibit may be viewed during library hours. For further information please call (860) 868-7586 or email email@example.com. The Gunn Memorial Library is located at 5 Wykeham Road at the juncture of Route 47 opposite the Green in Washington, CT.
