Norman Sunshine: The Conversation Pieces

Whittemore Gallery
Mattatuck Museum

September 22, 2013 - November 24, 2013

For two years, from 1995 to 1997, painter Norman Sunshine focused his energies on the production of a series of group portraits. These large scale paintings took as their subjects Sunshine’s friends and neighbors in Litchfield County, Connecticut, where some of New York City’s luminaries keep country homes. As a social diary, these paintings document the lifestyles and relationships of the social elite including well-known figures in the literary, art and music worlds such as Paige Rense Noland, Peter Duchin and Brooke Haywood.With these candid tableaux, Sunshine provides an intimate look at a privileged class and chronicles the complexity of interpersonal relationships.

Klimowicz at Morrison Gallery


Henry Klimowicz, a sculptor/installation artist who works in cardboard, launches a show called ‘Taking Over’ at The Morrison Gallery, starting Saturday, July 20th. The exhibit will feature many recent large scale works arrayed throughout the 7,000 square foot gallery located in the Old Barn section of town near the corner of Routes 7 and 341.

Klimowicz’s inventiveness combined with the adaptable nature of his work creates a sculpture exhibition unprecedented at the gallery. Included are several large pieces that climb 17 feet high, accentuating the vaulted ceiling of the gallery. And, in a small room Klimowicz has created an extension of his studio, adapting larger pieces to a small space and covering the walls and ceilings with his organic and abstract forms.
