Stamford Art Association - Corner Store

11/12/2017 to 12/14/2017

39 Franklin St., Stamford, CT Phone: 203 325 1139.

Thursday/Friday 11-3, Saturday/Sunday 12-3. The Stamford Art Association will present "CORNER STORE", a solo painting exhibit by Tara Blackwell at its Townhouse Gallery. Tara grew up in a household filled with artists-both her parents and her older brother-in a home teeming with differing artistic styles and modalities. The early deaths of her brother and father left her, a young painter, struggling to find her voice without her beloved teachers. In retrospect, processing these tragedies is what Tara, now a mature artist with a unique, exciting style, believes most accounts for the complexity and depth of her current work in which she employs bold colors, layers, and texture.
