The City of Norwalk Parking Authority’s Maritime Garage Gallery unveils its new exhibit “Aqua” with an opening reception on April 13, from 5:00pm to 7:00pm. “Aqua” runs through July 8, 2016. The Maritime Garage Gallery is located within the Maritime Parking Garage at 11 North Water Street in South Norwalk, Connecticut.
The pieces in “Aqua” take their inspiration from water. Gallery curator Sooo-Z Mastropietro explains. “With the 71% of the earth’s surface covered with water, we are constantly reminded of the beauty, the magic, the strength, and the importance of this substance. These pieces represent water in it’s many forms, powerful yet fragile, peaceful yet tremendous, abundant yet scarce.” Exhibiting artists include Kathy Conway of North Haven, Karen Kalkstein of Stamford, Bronislava Slagle of Wilton, Steve Wallerstein of Norwalk, and Gregory Dolnikowski of Boston, among others.
The Maritime Garage Gallery is part of the Parking Authority’s “Art in Parking Places” initiative, an effort to support art in public spaces making Norwalk a more vibrant destination. The gallery is free and open to the public from 9:00am -5:00pm Monday through Friday. For more information, call 203- 831-9063, or visit www.norwalkpark.org/public-art
