Press Release: DIFFERENT STROKES
The UConn Stamford Art Gallery is pleased to announce it newest art exhibit entitled "Different Strokes". The show is available for viewing from May 13, 2013 to July 12, 2013 in the Art Gallery located in the heart of UConn's downtown campus. The Artists' Reception is scheduled for Saturday, May 18th from 2:30-4:30pm.
The Pink House Painters, comprised of 33 Fairfield county painters, is diverse in perspective, style and media but they paint together regularly, providing one another with critiques and camaraderie.Started in 1970, under the mentorship of Westport painter, Arlene Skutch, The Pink House Painters have met weekly, each painting in his or her own style, inspiring one another and nurturing creativity. The name derives from the fact that Ms. Skutch’s studio, in which they gathered, is next to her bright pink Cape Cod style antique house, built in 1876. Ms. Skutch passed away in April 2012 but her adherents continue to paint together in the Westport studio of painter, Leona Frank. While most members of the group exhibit their work individually in exhibitions and commercial galleries, Different Strokes provides an opportunity for them to come together in celebration of their diversity and close bond and as a tribute to their mentor.
Admission is FREE to the exhibit. UConn Stamford is located at the corner of Washington Blvd. and Broad Street in downtown Stamford. FREE Visitor Parking is available at the UConn garage, 2nd level, on Washington Blvd.
