Pinxit! and The Works of Cathy Michanczyk - OpeningTonite!

Paris in Plantsville Gallery and Studio is pleased to announce the opening of "Pinxit: New Works by Sean Michanczyk & Eric Stegmaier", and "The Works of Cathy Michanczyk"on view from April 14 to May 1, 2012.

About the Artists:

Sean Michanczyk is a 2008 graduate of the Hartford Art School ( BFA illustration ). His work pays homage to old masters while keeping a contemporary trompe l’oeil edge. His tightly rendered paintings and keen sense of balance create harmonious story telling through symbolism. “ What it is, isn’t always what it is”.

Sean is the owner and founder of Paris In Plantsville Gallery & Studio. He and his Great Dane aptly named Paris reside in Southington, CT

Eric Stegmaier is a 2002 graduate of the Hartford Art School (BFA illustration) and a 2007 graduate of Sacred Heart University (MA religious studies). His work harmonizes tightly rendered and loosely gestural strokes, allowing him to direct the viewer’s eye not only through compositional placement, but also by selective detail.

Eric is an artist in residence at Paris in Plantsville and is the Senior Conservation Assistant in the Paintings Department at the Yale Center for British Art. He and his wife Heather currently reside in Southington, CT.

Cathy Michanczyk is a Southington Native, currently living in Plantsville. Her works are a mix of still life, landscapes, and wonderful portraits of cats in oils, acrylics, and pencil. Cathy has been on the Connecticut art scene since the early 1970's and has exhibited all over the state. We're proud to have Cathy in April to kick off our new gallery space as we expand Paris In Plantsville.

We look forward to seeing everyone Saturday night!
