It wasn’t that long ago that the Remington Arms complex on the East Side of Bridgeport hummed, if not with machinery, but with creativity.
(And come to think of it, some of that creativity did involve machinery.)
One artist is paying the complex, most of which has been demolished, with a fitting tribute.
The works were created at Janine Brown’s studio in the Remington complex. “She photographed the abandoned machinery and the building structure, intentionally moving the camera to create blurred and abstract photographs,” said the press release. “She then used the photographs to inform her multi-layered pastel works resulting in an image far removed from the original source.”
“The Remington Disarmed” will run from Jan. 20 – Feb. 16, with a reception for the artist at 5 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 27 at the historic Arcade Mall.
