Description:
 Let’s move on! Seven artists will display their works of art in “On the Move,” a show at the Flinn Gallery, sponsored by the Friends of the Greenwich Library.

Charlie Hunter, who lives on the banks of the Connecticut River in Vermont, paints “what nature does to what man creates, and nowhere is that more evident than what time and weather do to railroads.” Hunter, who is a cum laude graduate of Yale, is a member of the Putney Painters, an invitational painting group.

Judith Wyer, who holds a master of fine arts degree from Brooklyn College, and who has also studied at the Art Students League in New York, says,“My subject finds me. I don’t find it. When it does, I must be prepared with camera and sketch book.”

The photographs of Laure Dunne are from a series called “Wings and Wheels,” showing older planes, motorcycles and vehicles on the freeways of Southern California. Says Dunne, “I work in color and black and white to capture a mood, an emotion or a particular point of view.”

Pierre Gagnon, Paris born, is a magna cum laude graduate of the Parson School of Design in New York. Once a full-time designer for the textiles of such industry leaders as Ralph Lauren and Alexander Julian, painting scenes of Venice and the roofs of Paris remains his artistic priority.

A contemporary realist, the imagery of artist Lisbeth Firmin explores the relationship between people and their environment. Bold blocks of color produce an abstract interplay of shapes in urban landscapes that fall into place when viewed at a distance. See image above.

Award-winning Joel Sokolov, lives near Puna, Hawaii, where his drawings of the patterns of tropical foliage swirl and whirl in abstract twining forms, celebrating a creative life energy. After the High School of Music and Art in New York he attended Tufts and Cornell and graduated from the Boston Museum School of Art.

Andrei Palmer was adopted by Tim and Cathy Palmer of Missouri at the age of six from an orphanage in Romania, where abuse and neglect led to post-institutionalization trauma, a disorder on the autistic spectrum. From his own observations of automobiles, he draws detailed sketches on cardboard sheets recycled from workplace pallets.

The show will continue to January 22 and may be viewed Monday through Saturday from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., with extended hours to 8:00 p.m. on Thursdays and from 1:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. on Sundays. Artworks will be for sale, with a portion of the proceeds going to the Friends of the Greenwich Library.
