Seven Arts Gallery, a fine art gallery, will have its grand opening on Saturday, Dec. 1. The gallery at 54 Ethan Allen Highway in Branchville will open at noon and a reception will be held at 6 p.m.
The opening exhibit will highlight works by Californian Jim Phillips, whose iconic designs have shaped surf, rock and skateboard art; still life paintings by Silvermine Arts Center faculty member Justin Wiest; mixed-media works by internationally-exhibited artist Camille Eskell; paintings by Daniela Kinsbourne of Ridgefield; and drawings and paintings by gallery owner Paul Fernandez-Carol.
“I wanted to open the gallery because my friends who are area artists and I are always looking for new places to show our work and to see art that inspires us,” said Mr. Fernandez-Carol.
The Norwalk resident, who has exhibited in Los Angeles and New York City as well as Connecticut, said he was excited to find the right space to house the gallery. “With the Aldrich downtown and Silvermine nearby, Ridgefield is the perfect home for a gallery with a modern sensibility.”
He said the gallery’s aim is “to provide opportunity for local and regional artists, as well as those from outside the area, to share their work with art enthusiasts and buyers in southwestern Connecticut.”
