    OCEANIC: Works by Teodora Guererra and Daniel Pollera, accompanied by a Designer Vignette “Anything Goes” by Tiger Lily’s Greenwich.

    Opening Reception: Thursday, April 27th from 5:00 to 8:00pm.
    On Display: April 27th – May 29th.

    NEW CANAAN, CT – Summer isn’t so far away at Sorelle Gallery! “OCEANIC: Works by Teodora Guererra and Daniel Pollera”, on display from April 27th – May 29th celebrates the powerfully romantic open ocean. Guererra’s abstract paintings often inspire thoughts of rolling waves, and Pollera expertly paints the Hamptons seascape. Meet the artists during the opening reception on Thursday, April 27th from 5:00 to 8:00pm.

    Connecticut native Teodora Guererra’s artistic vision deepened and evolved during her years spent teaching and painting in Fairfield County, Tucson, Arizona, and upstate New York. Arizona’s naturally radiant landscape and arid climate led her to experiment with rich under-painting and vivid color; while the shifting seasons of the East Coast inspired Guererra to pursue dripping and pouring techniques. Her distinctive painting style is an alluring synthesis of texture, mark-making, and glowing color. She says her artworks “explore the tides of joy, failure, humor, uncertainty, and the euphoria of it all.”

    Primarily self-taught painter Daniel Pollera splits his time between his homes in East Quogue and Baldwin Harbor, Long Island, NY. His richly-detailed depictions of calm seas, gliding sailboats and inviting, sun-drenched Adirondack chairs reflect his longtime love for the coastline. Since obtaining a Captain’s License from the U.S. Coast Guard in 1977, Pollera has traversed the open ocean. “Living within close proximity to the salt marshes and shoreline has enabled me to capture a moment in time,” he says, “I feel a deep connection with my subject…”

    - In October 1912, the Bruce Museum hosted its first exhibition of art. At the time, the Greenwich Press noted that it was a welcome change to see “a long gallery hung with paintings from the best works of local artists.”

    Since then, the Bruce Museum has not only exhibited many paintings and sculptures by local artists who were influential in establishing the American Impressionist movement, such as Theodore Robinson, John Henry Twachtman, Leonard Ochtman, and Frederick Childe Hassam, but has also acquired works that represent significant moments from the history of art.

    Featuring 35 paintings and 7 sculptures from the Bruce’s growing collection, Canvas and Cast celebrates long-time favorites and many recent acquisitions representing significant moments in the history of art from the 16th through the 20th centuries. This exhibition, organized by Peter C. Sutton, The Susan E. Lynch Executive Director, and curated by Courtney Skipton Long, Zvi Grunberg Postdoctoral Fellow 2016/17 at the Bruce Museum, examines art historical themes including sculpted and painted portraits, narrative scenes and statues, landscapes, still lifes, and genre scenes.

    Canvas and Cast explores artists’ handling of different media – bronze, marble, oil, pastel, acrylic and collage – through examples of 16th-century Dutch portraiture, 19th-century American figural sculpture, academic style painting, and French and American landscapes from the turn of the 20th century.

    Presented with support from The Charles M. and Deborah G. Royce Exhibition Fund and the Connecticut Office of the Arts.

    - The Bruce Museum and the Hôtel de Caumont Centre d’Art in Aix-en-Provence, France, are presenting a major monographic exhibition of the art of the French Impressionist Alfred Sisley (1839 – 1899). The first retrospective in the United States in over twenty years of this purest of all the major Impressionists, the show is comprised of about 50 of Sisley’s paintings from private collections and major museums in Europe and North America. The Bruce Museum will premiere the exhibition and be the only venue in the United States.

    A friend of Claude Monet and Pierre-Auguste Renoir, Sisley initially worked in the naturalistic landscape tradition of the Barbizon School but increasingly adopted a proto-Impressionistic style, creating a body of work that has an impressive internal consistency and cumulative authority. Throughout his career, Sisley adhered to the style of divided light and color, momentary effects of illumination, and an acute responsiveness to atmosphere that are the signature attributes of Impressionism. He dutifully painted en plein air in all manner of weather, recording his favorite sites in the environs of Paris. The magic with which he was able to capture light sparkling on water, winter sun on snow, and trees rustled by a breeze create some of the most memorable Impressionist images.

    Sponsored by The Charles M. and Deborah G. Royce Exhibition Fund; Florence Gould Foundation; David T. Langrock Foundation;The Malcolm Hewitt Wiener Foundation; First Republic; Guardian Life Insurance Company of America; Robert Lehman Foundation; State of Connecticut; A Committee of Honor chaired by Gale and Bob Lawrence, Pam and Bill Lawrence, Kathleen L.

    -
    On Saturday, April 29, 2017, Greenwich, CT will be the site of the first ever (to our knowledge) Children’s Environmental March. This is a nonpartisan event that brings together families, children and students to celebrate the Earth on the same day as the Climate March in Washington D.C. The Children’s Environmental March is a local and accessible alternative to the DC march and is tailored specifically to young people. This is not a political protest, but rather a positive and festive forum in which young people and their families will express their feelings and hopes about the future of our Planet. The tone of the event will be celebratory and fun. Prizes will be awarded for most creative posters and hats, made with natural or recycled materials and addressing environmental themes, such as Water Conservation, Clean Air, Wildlife Protection, Forest Conservation, etc. Participants can choose any theme they want, and express their views creatively.

    We hope you’ll join us for this important inaugural event. The objective is to encourage young people to become more aware of and involved in environmental policy. This is the planet they will inherit, and they have the right to shape its future. The first part of the event consists of a short rally in front of Town Hall, with speakers ranging in age from very young to adult. Then we will march to the Commons Park on Greenwich Ave. for a festive conclusion, with activities, contests and prizes. The Children’s Environmental March will empower young people and give them a voice. Please join us:

    OCEANIC: Works by Teodora Guererra and Daniel Pollera, accompanied by a Designer Vignette “Anything Goes” by Tiger Lily’s Greenwich.

    Opening Reception: Thursday, April 27th from 5:00 to 8:00pm.
    On Display: April 27th – May 29th.

    NEW CANAAN, CT – Summer isn’t so far away at Sorelle Gallery! “OCEANIC: Works by Teodora Guererra and Daniel Pollera”, on display from April 27th – May 29th celebrates the powerfully romantic open ocean. Guererra’s abstract paintings often inspire thoughts of rolling waves, and Pollera expertly paints the Hamptons seascape. Meet the artists during the opening reception on Thursday, April 27th from 5:00 to 8:00pm.

    Connecticut native Teodora Guererra’s artistic vision deepened and evolved during her years spent teaching and painting in Fairfield County, Tucson, Arizona, and upstate New York. Arizona’s naturally radiant landscape and arid climate led her to experiment with rich under-painting and vivid color; while the shifting seasons of the East Coast inspired Guererra to pursue dripping and pouring techniques. Her distinctive painting style is an alluring synthesis of texture, mark-making, and glowing color. She says her artworks “explore the tides of joy, failure, humor, uncertainty, and the euphoria of it all.”

    Primarily self-taught painter Daniel Pollera splits his time between his homes in East Quogue and Baldwin Harbor, Long Island, NY. His richly-detailed depictions of calm seas, gliding sailboats and inviting, sun-drenched Adirondack chairs reflect his longtime love for the coastline. Since obtaining a Captain’s License from the U.S. Coast Guard in 1977, Pollera has traversed the open ocean. “Living within close proximity to the salt marshes and shoreline has enabled me to capture a moment in time,” he says, “I feel a deep connection with my subject…”
