New England Summers
The shoreline and landscapes of New England will take center stage during a new exhibition at Susan Powell Fine Art in Madison, Connecticut. Aptly titled Summer in New England, the show will include more than 70 paintings by 20 award-winning artists that range from “traditional realism and impressionism to contemporary styles that celebrate summer moments and the beauty and unique character of New England.”

Among the artists participating in the show are Kathy Anderson, Del-Bourree Bach, Peter Bergeron, Zufar Bikbov, Neal Hughes, Leonard Mizerek, Deborah Quinn-Munson, Jeanne Rosier Smith and George Van Hook.

Mizerek’s painting Departing the Harbor shows the mood and atmosphere of a small town’s working harbor, and it includes one of his recurring subjects, wooden boats. “Having detailed knowledge of my subject gives me freedom to concentrate on the painterly effects of atmosphere and light in this painting,” he says. “The overall colors are mostly complements of each other, bringing harmony to the painting. The colorful, open sky gave me an opportunity to create patterns of light and shadow, which reflect throughout the piece. I particularly enjoy the graceful movement of boats under sail, which provides endless inspiration.”
