NORWALK, Conn. — The Center for Contemporary Printmaking will present its annual members’ exhibition called “Kindred” from Saturday, Jan. 17, through March 15.
An artists' reception and award ceremony will take place on Sunday, Jan. 25, from 2 to 5 p.m.
Works featured in the exhibition deal with family-related themes such as dependence, support, and unconditional love. It explores how family experiences influence the lives of the artists.
“Family was so important to Grace Shanley, our co-founder along with her husband, Bill,” said Laura G. Einstein, executive director at the CCP. “This exhibition is a tribute to the Shanley family and to our community of members and artists, who are so important to the Center. 2015 is an important year for CCP as we celebrate our 20th year anniversary. This exhibition begins a celebratory year with an exhibition highlighting the importance of family.”
Brenda Giegerich, CCP’s 2014 Best in Show Award Recipient, will present “New Mexico Reflections” in the lithography room in conjunction with Kindred.
“These are recent prints referencing my memories and the lingering impressions from when I lived in New Mexico,” said Giegerich. “What deeply impresses me is the juxtaposition of different textures, the mountain backdrop and the large uninhabited spaces. The stillness and quiet of the landscape allows one a glimpse into the past and the ever-evolving nature of the land and our very small part in it."
The CCP is a nonprofit organization dedicated to the art of print. It is located at 299 West Ave. in Norwalk’s Mathews Park. The gallery and offices are open Tuesdays through Sundays from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
