NORWALK, Conn. -- Destiny and fate are the themes of the new fall exhibit, titled “Kismet," at The City of Norwalk Parking Authority’s Maritime Garage Gallery,
“Kismet” will run from Wednesday, Sept. 21 through Dec. 2. There will be an opening night reception on Sept. 21 from 5 to 7 p.m. that is open to the public. “Kismet” presents art in a variety of mediums focusing on the force that is believed to control the future.
“From relationships, to fashion, from the environment, to politics, kismet plays a role,” says Maritime Garage Gallery curator Sooo-Z Mastropietro. “The pieces represent how kismet controls outcomes in the community, the world, or the artists’ lives."
Exhibiting artists include Jean Marc Bara of Greenwich, Ingrid Baron of Fairfield, Bobbie Bernstein of Westport, Francie Grace of Wilton, Margaret Alcock Prezzano of Ridgefield, Charmaine Rawsthorne of Norwalk and Joanna Stuart of New Haven, among others.
Tammy Winser, one of the founders of the Westport Artist Collective and freshly appointed ACE awardee, was guest juror for the “Kismet” exhibit. A Parsons graduate and former print designer for Marc Jacobs, she has a colorful background with a style tied in with photography, painting, collage, and assemblage. She has created public works internationally and continues to impact the local art scene through her commitment to ongoing endeavors.
The Maritime Garage Gallery is part of the Parking Authority’s “Art in Parking Places” initiative, an effort to support art in public spaces making Norwalk a more vibrant destination. The gallery is free and open to the public from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday. The gallery is in the Maritime Parking Garage at 11 North Water St. in South Norwalk.
