Forest To Shore Gallery is hosting a Marcella Kurowski exhibit, “Ad Libitum,” 5 p.m. Friday, July 15. FTS is probably the newest gallery in the area, situated in a second-floor space above a pub in Stratford’s historic downtown.
Some galleries get secondary revenue from framing; at FTS, it’s tattooing. Behind its dramatic, curved art wall are two small rooms where tattoos artists ply their trade.
You all remember Marcella. Formerly known as Looketha, she had a previous show at the old Black Rock Gallery, and has opened her studio to the public at the American Fabrics Building open houses. Her works defy description, but possess a strange, twisted beauty, and the art market has noticed. Already, at least one of her pieces at FTS has a big “SOLD!” sign on it.
