Greenwich, CT – “Just Add Water” opens Thursday, August 7th with a special reception 5:30 -7:30pm.

Just when there seems to be no relief from the heat and humidity of summer, the C. Parker Gallery offers a refreshing respite. “Just Add Water” a group exhibition celebrates the wondrous days of summer. Selected members of the gallery’s roster in conjunction with several guest artists use both traditional iconography and contemporary metaphor to explore summer’s bounty.

Highlights of the exhibition are Igor Korotash’s large-scale waterscapes which vividly capture the essence of the summer season. With their kaleidoscopic palette and exuberant strokes, the artist’s work appears playful and effortless. Like a memory deeply etched, the Greenwich artist Victoria Brooks Melly’s landscapes are pensive and dreamlike. Sea foam green and misty blues draw their inspiration from the waters reflections and shimmering haze of the summers’ sun. Painter Denis Folz employs a minimalist approach to rendering the terrain. His deconstructed waterscapes with their implied horizon line are immensely powerful.

Please join us at the C. Parker Gallery and partake in a bit of this cooling summer refreshment. “Just Add Water” runs from August 1st – 30th, with an opening reception on Thursday, August 7, 5:30 – 7:30pm.
