City Lights Gallery has come to Westport, specifically in the 176 Post Road West showroom of Dragone Classic Motorcars. Artwork from City Lights will be on display alongside the Dragone family collection of classic and antique cars.
Saturday’s gala grand opening of its satellite gallery is going to be special. Your donation of $20 supports the live music, good food, and the gallery’s ongoing slate of free public art programs and growing education and enrichment opportunities for youth. George Dragone is a long-time supporter of City Lights. He and his family lent their Bridgeport showroom to unveil a sculpture about a year ago.
Kachmar says that this offshoot is, “great for the public, who will be introduced to new works, and for us, it’s a good way to promote our artists.”
Exhibiting artists include Chad Anderson, Michelle Beaulieu, Tom Brenner, Christy Gallagher, Steve Gerber, Dana Scinto, Liz Squillace, Susan Tabachnick, Yves Francois Wilson and Mary Witkowski. The reception is Saturday, Oct. 15, from 7-9 p.m. The show runs through Nov. 29.
“City Lights West will help us and the artists feel more connected to Fairfield County,” says Kachmar.
