A Hartford artist whose work made it to my neighborhood by way of the Gallery at Black Rock (now 305K) is showing all-new works and large-scale installations in New Rochelle.
“I promise, its worth the drive,” says Ted Mikulski.
I’ve been pondering why there isn’t more of a Fairfield-Westchester county connection. We’ve been wandering over yonder more and more lately. There’s more across the border than the Cheesecake Factory and Neiman Marcus.
This show, at Iona College, is over a year in the making. In Mr. Mikulski’s words:
This is NOT an Abstract Expressionist show! I have been obsessing about this exhibition since 2009 and it will most likely be my last solo show for quite a while. Expect a real evolution of my previous aesthetics. … Official description: ‘Color for Color’s Sake’ is an installation of works created specifically for the Iona College Gallery.
The exhibition is a feature of the artist’s life-long obsession with color and expression culminating in the artists favorite character, the TEEM Robot. This hybrid exhibition/installation features paintings and sculptures that blur the line between artistic genres. Showing through April 7th.
