“Fine Art and Flowers” includes floral arrangements created by members of the Cherry Brook Garden Club and the Gallery on the Green. Come see how the complementary positioning of art and plants enhances and enlivens the downstairs gallery space. Stanwyck Cromwell’s solo show, “Looking Back-Moving Forward: Retrospective II”, is comprised of new work that fuses ideas from past and present. This Guyanese-born artist finds inspiration from his cross-cultural experiences. Guyanese folklore and traditions are an abiding influence. He uses a palette knife to create layers of richly textured color surface. Cromwell is adjunct professor at Capital Community College, has an MFA from the University of Hartford and has exhibited extensively in New York, Connecticut and Massachusetts. “Along the Waterline,” the solo exhibit by photographer Richard Alan Cohen is the product of a two-year project. The images are entrancing abstract compositions with a beauty that defies their origin in wear and waste. In his series “Waterline” Cohen shows sections of boat worn hulls sitting on cradles in boatyards. This take the appearance of “imagined landscapes encoded by residue.” A second category of images is “Overboard”, which uses the hulls to provide a striking record of the dumping of concentrated impurities before they are diluted by the sea. After graduating from Bowdoin College with a major in science and art, he went to Johns Hopkins School of Medicine and had a career in medical science. Photography is now a full-time pursuit. The opening reception for all three shows is Saturday, June 2nd from 6:00-9:00 pm. Cromwell is presenting an artist’s talk on Saturday, June 9th from 2:00-3:00 p.m. The reception including refreshments is free, and the public is warmly invited.
