4 Continents on Beford St @FLA Gallery Opening 5/6, 6-9p

4 Continents on Bedford
Journey of New Works at Fernando Luis Alvarez Gallery
Opening Reception: Thursday, May 6th, 6-9 p.m.
On view Thursday May 6th 2010 to Saturday June 12th 2010
 
Fernando Luis Alvarez Gallery presents, 4 Continents on Bedford, a selection of contemporary works from distinct artists spanning four continents of the globe. Viewers will journey through a collection of the gallery’s new in-house artists. The exhibit is shaped by the culture of each artist while providing a novel view of illusions and experiences unified in one gallery on Bedford Street.

Damla T. Faro is indubitably a skillful artist of abilities and talents learned internationally and easily recognized through a mere glance at her superb work. Ms. Faro has honed her photographic and print talents in areas as unique as Istanbul, Turkey and Chicago, Illinois.

Damla not only instills potent emotions and imaginative thoughts within her work, she literally hands an entirely new world of imagination to all who consider what they have just witnessed.

Whatever you may consider to be photography, Siddhartha Tawadey will alter, if not demolish your pre-conceptions. Mr. Tawadey of India is a gentleman of world-wide travels, experience and scope. It may be stated with confidence that observers of Mr. Tawadey's work would be stricken and stimulated by his certifiably unique approach to depiction of "his world", poetic, experimental, at times gorgeous, his, and fortunately, yours and ours as well!

Adam Grant, a native New Yorker and skilled sculptor and painter forms stone into florid shapes that will accentuate any room. If the connoisseur of sculptures seeks discovery of works of an artist whose future is now-he has been found in Adam Grant. Exemplary of ancient finds, Grant creates passages through carved unprejudiced, still, truths of stories frozen in space.

Fernando Ferreira de Araujo a Brazilian artist whose paintings poetically intertwine beings and
nature, is collected internationally. His loose strokes filled with emotions are brought to live on
each canvas, offering an intimate exchange with its viewer- each stroke whispering “I understand”. An abstract expressionist, his work has been described as “sober and sensuous.”


The selected works of 4 Continents on Bedford have been unified in one space, the Fernando

“Big-Bigger-Biggest”


The Loft Artists Association presents
"Big-Bigger-Biggest"
May 7 – June 20, 2010
at the Loft Artists Gallery, 845 Canal Street, Stamford, CT
www.loftartists.com
•203-323-4153
Opening Reception: Friday, May 7, 2010 6:00 PM – 9:00 PM
The Loft Artists Gallery presents Big-Bigger-Biggest, an art show featuring
select large paintings from LAA artists. All art on exhibit will be 36" X 48" or larger, offering a rare opportunity for viewers to see how LAA artists are experimenting with size and scale.

"The idea of a show where the only parameter is size is intriguing as is the chance to view a selection of very large paintings in one space," says Mark Macrides.  "It will be much different than what viewers typically see in our gallery as we usually limit the size of work to accommodate more artists."
Big-Bigger-Biggest will run from May 7 to June 20, with an opening reception that is free and open to the public on Friday, May 7 from 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. The Loft Artists Gallery is located at 845 Canal Street in Stamford, CT.  Gallery hours are Friday through Sunday, 12-5 pm.  Admission is free.


The Loft Artists Association, a non-profit organization, is located in Stamford's South End. For over 30 years, the Loft Artists have been dedicated to sharing the power of art with the community in which they work.
