Culture Connect Featured Event
In Pegasus Gallery
Reception on Wednesday, February 6th, 4:00-6:00 pm
Sonya Suydam Gill’s painting process confronts color and composition with dynamic and expressive force. “Color” is dominated by landscape paintings that emphasize the abstract qualities of paint. Broadly applied brush strokes create an active surface where successive paint layers suggest depth and light. This is best observed in “River at Dusk,” where balance is struck between a gestural image construction and its serene waterscape subject.
Gill says, “I paint those things that are part of my life. I love flowers, the water and often in my still lifes, incorporate lively fabrics in vivid colors. I could not live in a world without color.”
Gill has exhibited throughout Connecticut and lives in Chester. She received her BFA, MFA and EdD at Syracuse University, instructed art in New York and was the principal at East Lyme High School.
Pegasus Gallery is located within the library on the first floor of Chapman Hall
