Opposite Sides of the World – Connecticut to Singapore
An exhibition of paintings by Janette Maxey
August 28—October 9, 2015
A lifetime resident of Connecticut, Janette Maxey left for an adventure abroad to live in Singapore for four years. Upon her return to Connecticut, she “rediscovered [her] own Town/State/Country, realizing it was more curious and unusual” than she ever thought possible.
Maxey comments, “Things one notices when entering a new culture – people, food, everyday items in a store, street signs, the textures and colors of a place. No filters and all overwhelming. A short time passes, curiosity takes hold, one goes deeper into that place and forms answers to questions starting with the reference points in their own past. “
Please join us on the Artwalk for the Opening Reception, Friday, August 28, at 6 pm. Free.
