Poetry & Chocolate

Poetry & Chocolate

Free

Okay, I know this is two months in a row at this gallery, but this was too good to pass up, when I saw CHOCOLATE, I was in....coupled with poetry and two exceptional Artist, I couldn't pass by this one.

A taste of exquisite chocolate will catalyze poetry read by SCSU faculty & MFA candidates.  “Poetry and Chocolates,” which offers samples of exquisite chocolates by Chocopolgie and poetry recitations with their backdrop being "Nudes & Nudibranchs," the exhibition by artists Frank Bruckmann and Gar Waterman, is not to be missed

 

Nudes and Nudibra

Frank Bruckmann: Paintings

  

  

 

Gar Waterman: Sculptures

There are no straight lines in nature, only curves giving shape to the myriad forms of life on our extraordinary planet.  Cave drawings of primitive stick figure hunters stalking their prey begin a long history of expressing our understanding of the surrounding natural world through art. Frank Bruckmann and Gar Waterman are both traditionalists who use direct observation of nature and carefully applied technique to create their work. The results are neither stick figure nor facile exercise in easy post modern irony. Bruckmann's brushstrokes caress oil paint with an expert and familiar hand into the eternally complex landscape of the female figure, while Waterman's sculpture bends the liquid sheen of polished stone into impressions of rhythm and grace from the marine environment. Both artists’ work is beautiful in Kantian fashion, but its beauty is not confined to the surface. Instead, it wells up through underlying layers of paint and stone to reveal the more complex and extenuated alchemy required to create it, the artists’ brush and chisel marks the visible wake of their passage through the world.

    Wonderful event and as one member said, it touched all the senses. Two of my favorite artist on display. Amazing poetry with many facits. I must confess, I did make a run to Chocopoligie later that evening and it was worth the trip!

    Wow! I really had a nice time. So great to attend with such kind people. I wanted that whole bowl of chocolate Big Time. Also the dark chocolate. I found the poetry smart, sassy, irreverent and very entertaining. Did want to touch the sculptures they were fantastic, and the paintings had an antique, misty window feel with warm multilayered textures. Thanks! that was soooo much fun!

    I'm keen to get out after all the sicknesses and health problems my family had in January... and then the blizzard! Looking at the weather report, it seems that the New Haven area will not be so much affected by any snow today... perhaps just flurries. Can't wait to attend!

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
