Craven Contemporary is excited to announce the opening of its new show “Bruno Leydet” on December 12th with 14 works by the artist including three large-scale works on the long gallery wall. This is Bruno’s first solo show in the USA and will run through the end of February.
Bruno was born and raised in Montreal, Canada. He received his Bachelor of Fine Art at Concordia University in Montreal and his Master of Fine Arts at New York University. After spending time in New York, Paris and Mexico City, Bruno again lives in Montreal where he focuses on his painting practice.
Bruno explains his work “my portraits are like tableaux vivants: they’re not scenes from everyday life but are inspired by it. They are landscapes of my mood when I painted them. Often, a figure is a starting point. Patterns and juxtapositions appear almost organically. Or I have something in mind already and it happens to fit.”
Enter the world of underground Soviet Art by Yefim Ladyzhensky in Ober Gallery's latest exhibition featuring paintings and drawings by this Odessa artist (1911-1982).
The show includes a short film about his life. Many of these paintings are being shown for the first time in the US, having been smuggled out of the Soviet Union during the Cold War. A must see! Gallery Hours: Saturday 12-5 pm and Sunday 1-4 pm. Ober Gallery
KENT — As Phase 1b of vaccinations begins, Kent’s first vaccination site has been established by High Watch Recovery Center, 17 Old Barn Road, in the Kent Barns shopping center.
The space, donated by Kent Barns, is operated by High Watch employees and volunteers.
“As we worked to get our own health care providers registered for vaccinations, we realized there weren’t a lot of options in the Northwest Corner,” said Jason Perillo, High Watch vice president. “This gives folks who live and work in the area a more convenient option.”
To schedule appointments, register at dphsubmissions.ct.gov/OnlineVaccine. People who are 65 or older are eligible to receive a vaccination. Those without online access can call 877-918-2224, Monday through Friday, from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
High Watch is accepting walk-ins. If you are over 65 years old you may come to the Kent Barns site. There may be a wait, but we will get you in and out as quickly as possible. We open at 9 am and close at 5 pm.
A few points to make:
Vaccinations are given at Kent Barns (NOT their main campus on Carter Road)
They cannot vaccinate NY residents.
Feb 4 - March 6
