mcnabney_cat

Local Artist Michael McNabney will be exhibiting his Pet Portraits at the All Creatures Great And Small exhibit opening on Earth Day, April 22, 2017 at 6:00 PM. Michael began the project after he was awarded an artist residency and traveled to the village of Polknovik Serafimovo, Bulgaria. On a walk through the village he met a dog, he had no idea at the time she was an abandoned dog that had been rescued and given shelter by “Little Angels Rescue BG”; who had apparently gone on a walk of her own away from the shelter. In time he was invited on a sunrise dog walk in the mountains by some people that were taking care of the animals at Little Angels Rescue. To his surprise, there was the same dog leading the pack. Michael was told “Fliss” had “escaped” a few days earlier, and then returned. Fliss had been at the animal rescue for five months waiting for adoption. Michael’s family had a safe and loving home for her but no funds for the costly transportation and expense to adopt here in the U.S. Michael reached out through GoFundMe to help bring Fliss home. In return for donations at different levels he offers original artwork as an expression of gratitude. Custom oil on canvas pet portraits, drawings of your pet, and hand printed and signed numbered block prints are available as a thank you gifts. https://www.gofundme.com/adopting-fliss-transport-fund-2vmux9g. 

Ceramic Sculpture Dogs by Lori Rembetski

thumb_IMG_0055_1024

“My canine creations are an exploration of the universal nature of dogs as expressed through body language. Each sculpture is handbuilt and carved from Earthenware or Terra Cotta Clay. Each has its own personality and is one of a kind. From start to finish it takes me four to six weeks to create a sculpture. I use black earthenware, white earthenware, and terra cotta clay. I mix scraps of the different clays together to expand my color pallet. The blended clay bodies are always a surprise. Splashes of color, marbling, or a solid color. Sometimes I use an iron oxide wash to give a sculpture a little more color.” – Lori Rembetski

Statement Makers - Work In Progress. G. Roger Clements, Artist & Photographer

Studio 33 Art & Frame Gallery presents Statement Makers – Work In Progress. The exhibit features the work of G. Roger Clements, Architectural Designer, Artist,Photographer (BFA, Graphic Design); Founder and Principal of Sasqua Designs, LLC; Board Member Lyme Art Assoc., and New London Maritime Society/Custom House Maritime Museum Trustee. Through his photographic lens and maquette’s Roger takes a look at selected New London buildings, showcasing many that have been cared for to historically preserve and beautify them. We honor those owners who have invested in their city. A significant number of once lovely buildings, sadly neglected or abused, have been exposed as a marked contrast to what is represented in the city. This exhibit draws your attention especially to those blighted buildings and the potential to restore them to their original grandeur. Roger’s goal is not to revel in the unpleasant aspects of the built world but rather to focus his eye on it through merging traditional media in the hope that his work will render the world a cleaner, more pleasant place to live in. “The choice to move to New London was incredibly logical. It’s architectural stock is fabulous and the work that has already been attended to gives a wonderful base from which to build. New London is a star waiting to be born”. – G. Roger Clements. An Artist’s Reception will be held on Sept. 12, 2015, 6 to 9PM, the exhibit will close Oct. 10, 2015 at 3PM. An Artist’s Talk, open to the public, will be presented on Sept. 25, 2015, 6 to 8PM, 140 Bank St., New London, CT. Visit us at httpa//studio33gallery.com/:::studio33gallery.com.
