Bethel Artist Exhibits at Stanley L. Richter Association for the Arts

Danbury, Connecticut artists Antonio Carvahlo and Bethel artist Katie Bassett will have a two person exhibition. The Stanley L. Richter Association for the Arts presents, Representational Abstraction, in their gallery at .

An Opening Artist’s Reception will be held on April 28th from 2:00 to 5:00pm.

Antonio Carvahlo is currently a Masters of Fine Art student at WCSU. His main concern with his representational oil paintings is creating engagement and dialogue with reality; both inner and outer aspects of reality in the same moment. His reality can be almost anything: an object, a bug, person, or landscape. When Antonio is approaching his work he examines how painting can begin to transfigure pain into happiness. His paintings create a communication that breaks the chains of isolation.

Although Carvhalo and Bassett’s work aesthetically appear drastically different, there is a common thread between their intentions.

The exhibition will be on view, April 28th & 29th 2-5pm and May 5th & 6th 2-5pm.

Like Antonio, Katie Bassett’s work focuses on transforming pain into happiness. All of Katie’s work expresses the need to rebuild what has been destroyed by breaking preconceived rules of art, expression and materials. She creates her work out of various recycled materials and by using many techniques, including painting and sewing. The work pushes the limits of what the materials will allow with the use of bleach, dyes, mediums; often Bassett tears the canvas and sews it back together .

Katie Bassett “Satisfy That Inner Drive”

Although Carvhalo and Bassett’s work aesthetically appear drastically different, there is a common thread between their intentions. The two styles create a dialogue that would not have been achieved without experimentation and exploration. The exhibition will also include two collaborative paintings by the artists.
