Southport Galleries is honored to present The Sound of Color, a solo exhibition featuring the latest body of work by abstract artist, Linda Colletta. Presented in partnership with Sissy Biggers and Dr. Philip Eliasoph of Southport Galleries, The Sound of Color is curated by Danielle Ogden, Museum Specialist, Adult Learning at The Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum, Ridgefield, CT and Art History Faculty at Fairfield University, and sponsored by TUSK Home + Design of Westport.
The Sound of Color will begin with an opening reception on Thursday, February 13th from 6-9pm and will be on view until Thursday, April 2nd. The exhibit will showcase paintings and works on paper from Colletta’s dynamic breadth of practice.
Drawing upon her fifteen-year background as a professional scenic artist in the music television industry in New York City, Linda is skilled in the craft of creating environments and cultivating an authentic experience for the viewer. Colletta constructs a distinctive style of painting that emerges from a vocabulary of color. Her work calls upon an urban nostalgia, incorporating a cacophonous array of electric gestures, and a pop aesthetic. The Sound of Color will highlight Colletta’s interest in the visual as acoustic; exploring the relationships between stroke and rhythm, palette and tone, and abstraction and improvisation.
