This exhibit is the artist's first solo show, which will feature her most current series of oil paintings. The series is based on the Epiphyllum Hybrid/'Calisto' plant featuring its large fragrant blooms, buds and flat leaves. Ms. Pulit captures this beautiful flower, commonly known as the 'Queen of the Night', which opens and closes in a single night. Works done in pastel and water-soluble graphite will also be on exhibit

Touring Italy and studying at the University in Urbino, she experienced the art, language and culture of her heritage. Ms. Pulit has been an art educator in Waterbury for twenty years and is currently teaching at Wilby High School. She serves as a mentor and cooperating teacher for the Connecticut BEST program and was selected as "Who's Who among America's Teachers" in 2004.

Aside from her teaching, Ms. Pulit has also exhibited her work locally. In the earlier years, her interests were focused on fine craft where she participated in several craft shows and exhibited her art-wearable's in fine galleries of Guilford, Westbrook and Essex. Today, she works in a variety of drawing and painting media. Over the years, she has participated in several local exhibits such as; Artsplace, Cheshire Art League's annual exhibit, electronic exhibits for the Connecticut Art Education Association fall conferences, The Picture Framer's Artshack Gallery in Cheshire and the Hilles Gallery of C.A.W. in New Haven.

Rossella Pellegrino Pulit, a lifelong resident of Connecticut, resides in Cheshire with her husband Joseph and their two daughters.
