Progressive Gallery Tour 2016-17

The Progressive Gallery Tour, a program of the Cultural Alliance of Fairfield County, was designed to bring our artist, cultural nonprofit, and creative business members together once a month to discover the richness and variety of our commercial gallery members. Each month they visit a different town - from Greenwich to Shelton. Join us as they continue their second season with a visit to Southport Galleries, Thursday March 23, 6-8pm. We are excited to highlight the works of two strong, talented Contemporary Artists, Kim Romero and Katy Ferrarone.

 Melissa Barbieri returns to Southport Galleries with fellow Connecticut artists, Ann Rechtermann and Nina Gagarin in a specially curated exhibition for the holiday season. Barbieri’s provocative new work evokes the heavens and the sea in her signature fresco and silver leaf motif. Her life-size figurative paintings include a mermaid on a beach encrusted in starfish and seashells and netting.

 Ann Rechtermann’s impressive array of smaller works in silver and gold leaf explore foliage, fruits, sea life and animals.

Nina Gagarin recently relocated her decorative arts atelier in Palm Beach back to Greenwich. The exhibition includes her signature showpiece, a dramatic painting of a vivid, giant clam shell against an inky background.
