  • Dennis Sheehan and Peter Bergeron
    October 4 – October 27, 2013

    Susan Powell Fine Art is pleased to present the opening of an exhibition of 30 landscapes by Dennis Sheehan and Peter Bergeron. The exhibition runs from Friday, October 4 to October 27, 2013 with an opening reception on Friday, October 4 from 6 – 8:30 pm. Please join us and meet the artists.

    The landscape paintings of Dennis Sheehan and Peter Bergeron reflect the sublime beauty of nature’s changing seasons arousing memories and recalling smells and sounds. Fleeting and ephemeral light effects cast by a setting sun or rising moon, the mists of early morning, the stillness before storms, the lush colors of a marsh in fall, and the crashing waves on a rocky coastline provide a rich, sensory experience. Both artists are classically trained and follow in the tradition of the 19th century American landscape painters. Dennis Sheehan’s paintings are in major public and private collections, including the White House.

    Susan Powell Fine Art is located at 679 Boston Post Road,
    Madison, CT

    For more information, please call (203) 318-0616.

  • Summer Along the Shore – June 28, 2013 – August 31, 2013

    “Summer Along the Shore” at Susan Powell Fine Art conjures up summers spent in the sun on the shore. From Maine to Connecticut, the New England coast has attracted many who enjoy fresh sea breezes and sand between their toes. Breathtaking views of rocky coasts, shorelines shimmering with warm light, sunlit marshes, picturesque harbors, have all been an essential subject matter to American plein air painting. Plein Air painting is a revered Connecticut tradition which began in Cos Cob and Old Lyme in the late 19th century. 20 nationally exhibited studio and plein air artists are well represented in the show and capture in rich detail the beauty and atmosphere of the landscape and water with a spirit and spontaneity. 80 paintings will be for sale, and many are local views of Madison.

    Participating artists include Kathy Anderson, Del-Bourree Bach, Ira Barkoff, Peter Bergeron, Karen Blackwood, Lou Bonamarte , Dan Brown, Sandy Garvin, Vincent Giarrano, Susan Jositas, Roxann Poppe Leibenhaut, James Magner, Leonard Mizerek, Michael Naples, Cora Ogden, Polly Seip, Dennis Sheehan, Katherine Simmons, George Van Hook and Carolyn Walton.
