Press release

City Gallery announces it first fall season exhibit titled "Nest" The theme was determined by curator Liz Pagano, a member of City Gallery and concerns ideas of the Nest, or the act of nesting. Nest is an ancient word, *ni-zd-os in Indo European, composed of the prefix *ni-"down," plus a form of the verbal root sed, "to sit". Followed by a suffix used to form nouns, *-os. Thus a *nizd-os literally means "(place where the bird) sits down."

The four artists invited to show with Pagano are Meg Bloom, a New Haven based artist and City gallery member, Howard el-Yasin, a New Haven artist and Gallery Director of ALL Gallery in New Haven, Laura Moriarty, a nationally renowned encaustic artist based in the Hudson Valley area of New York, and Colleen Tully, a New Haven artist and the founder of Pixel Pops. (A show at ALL Gallery featuring Pagano and Tully was reviewed on Connecticut Art Scene in April.)

Each artist brings a unique and personal vision using a variety of media, including but not limited to: encaustic, mixed media construction and installation. The work is a range of abstract interpretations. Each artist having his/her own focus on the idea of "NEST". All exhibit regionally, nationally and internationally.
