The Norwalk Parking Authority’s "Art in Parking Places" announces a surprising new exhibit.
Previously, "Art in Parking Places" installed fiber board fashion statements and cast aluminum sculptures throughout the SoNo Train Station, bringing art to the commuters of Norwalk.
Beginning Tuesday, Oct. 1, a new art exhibition at the Maritime Garage Gallery, “Gusto,” marks its arrival with fanfare.
On Tuesday, an opening reception is scheduled from 5:00-7:00pm at the Gallery, 11 North Water Street. The event is free and open to the public.
The “Gusto” exhibit will focus on food in all its glory. Food plays a critical role in our life as we crave it, host events around it, conduct competitions in its honor, and work for it. The works will represent ways in which food inspires the artists.
“Gusto” will feature the work of New York food artist Bill Wurtzel whose artistic food creations are spontaneous and witty. His book, “Funny Food: 365 Fun, Healthy, Silly, Creative Breakfasts” (Welcome Books, 2011), was chosen as Best Children’s Book of 2012 by the Bank Street College Book Committee.
Other exhibiting artists demonstrate a diverse range of techniques and media. They include Amy Kaplan (Westport), Lisa Wilson Grant (Norwalk), Lynn Massey (Norwalk), Debra Schaffer (Ridgefield), Ruth Kalla Ungerer (Ridgefield) and Joan Wheeler (Easton).
The Maritime Garage Gallery is part of the Parking Authority’s “Art in Parking Places” initiative, an effort to support art in public spaces.
The gallery is free and open to the public from 9:00am-5:00pm Monday through Friday.
