I-PARK: WHERE ART MEETS NATURE – FREE OPEN STUDIOS EVENT

May 15, 2019

 

East Haddam, CT (May 8, 2019)  — The public is invited to visit I-Park for its first OPEN Studios of the 2019 season. Guests will get to meet six of the seven resident artists on Sunday, May 19 at 2 pm. I-Park is located at 428 Hopyard Road in East Haddam, which adjoins the Devil’s Hopyard State Park.

 

I-Park is generally closed to visitors to give the artists undisturbed time to work on their creative endeavors. But once a month, at the conclusion of each residency, visitors are invited to meet the artists in their studios, attend the presentation segment that features select time-based works, enjoy complimentary refreshments and stroll the trails winding through I-Park’s scenic, art-filled campus. 

 

The studios will be open only from 2:00 until 3:30 so guests are encouraged to arrive early so they have enough time to visit all the studios before the 3:30 presentations. A reception with refreshments will follow.

 

The artists-in-residence are:

Marianne Barcellona is a painter and professional photographer from New York City. Her extensive travels provide raw inspiration for her paintings. 

 

Hugh Livingston is a composer and sound artist from California who creates multi-media installations related to natural and built spaces; he also performs exploratory cello music. His artworks have been installed internationally.   

Colette Lucas is a mixed media artist and gardening enthusiast based in New Hampshire. Her botanical motifs are created from a combination of imagination, observation and research.

Tom Nazziola, a New Jersey composer, has had his music featured on virtually every medium in the world of music. From "live film music" to choral and orchestral pieces, his compositions have been performed around the world.

 

Dominica Phetteplace is a prize-winning Washington (state) poet and writer whose work has appeared in Asimov's, Zyzzyva, Copper Nickel and Ecotone as well as numerous other publications.

Allison Roberts is a lens-based artist from Oklahoma. She works primarily with photography, video and installation to address memory, place and identity as such are experienced during periods of transition.  

Jane Simpson is a mixed media artist from New Hampshire. Her collage and assemblage work is comprised mainly of found paper – made either by mother nature or human ingenuity. Recently she has incorporated graphite drawings inspired by vintage photographs.

 

 

Although admission to OPEN Studios is free, advance reservations are requested. To reserve your space, go to i-park.org. For additional information, write events@i-park,org or call 860-873-2468.
