OPENING RECEPTION: Thursday, March 1, 5:30 – 7:30pm
Join us this March for the latest pieces by abstract Fairfield County artists Katherine Evans,
Rose-Marie Fox, and Linda George at Handwright Gallery.
Katherine Evans, of Westport, pulls inspiration derived from her environment and weaves it with her
signature use of magnified color into pieces that highlight one of the two ends of the spectrum. Paint
is then layered on canvas to bring out the dimensions of the subject at hand. Previous exhibits include:
Spectrum Miami, Saatchi Art, Greenwich Art Society.
Rose-Marie Fox, of Darien, who’s work is influenced by the 16 years she spent living in China, creates
a three dimensional depth within the framework of a two dimensional medium. Fox visually
contemplates landscapes and in her own words says: “Some works are quiet contemplations of small
movements of sky, water, wind – some note the stillness of early morning or late night filled with its
mystery of becoming.” Previous exhibits include: Greenwich Art Society, Westport Art Center, Ridgefield
Guild of Artists.
Linda George, of Darien, has most recently been working on non-representational concepts in her
pieces, though she feels her work, oftentimes, perhaps subconcciously, returns to current societal
and pictoral landscapes…and her love of Bruce Springstein. Previous exhibits include: Greenwich Art
Society and Rowayton Arts Center.
