Press release

The Hygienic Art Galleries will host "Forces of Nature: Exploring Spiritual Landscapes", a new exhibition of work by three local artists, A. Vincent Scarano, Glenn Hart and Karen Rand Mitchell, opening Saturday, September 8th.

The theme of the show is reflected in different ways by each artist. Scarano's sensuous and dynamic color photographs of southwestern "light canyons" have a brilliant yet haunting allure. They represent a new direction for this New London photographer whose previous work has focused on black and white photojournalism and portraiture.

Glenn Hart of Montville presents richly-hued, life-size, narrative oil paintings of surrealistic landscapes, animals and people. The highly detailed content of the work is dreamlike, offering an opportunity for contemplation.

Stonington artist Karen Rand Mitchell's new work is comprised of mixed media abstract paintings, as well as a series of installed sculptures fabricated from natural materials, including branches, bones, moss and found objects. The overall feeling of the work is one of journeying through a mystical, abstracted landscape, meant to engage the viewer in a personal journey.

Forces of Nature: Exploring Spiritual Landscapes runs from Sept. 8-Oct. 6, with a reception open to the public on Sept. 8th, 7-10 p.m.
