Paper/New England artist reception Thursday night

Paper/New England
56 Arbor St., Hartford, (860) 729-1146
Through May 10, 2008.
Artists' reception: Thurs., Mar. 20, 7—9 p.m.

Press release

Throughout an artist's life they will view countless works of art. There will be a few that have particular resonance and will rest in their minds even while they work in their studios. Artists create work with the hope that theirs will leave this same indelible mark on someone else, tying them to the past and moving them toward the future.In order to celebrate this remarkable link, Paper/New England has created an exhibition entitled Admire/Inspire/Aspire.

Four artists were selected to participate and have each selected two artists. One artist who they have long admired, and who, through their career, served as a source of inspiration. Second, one artist for whom they have served as a mentor, a guide and who has been inspired by their work.

The participating artists are Trudy Raftery, Andrew Raftery, Amanda Lebel, Kris Sader, Siri Beckman, Mary Ann Schwarz, Verne Anderson, John Willis, Jillian Vento (the accompanying image is a Vento drawing with watercolor and acrylic), John Jacobsmeyer, Scott Schnepf and James Munce.

There will be a reception for the show this Thursday night from 7—9 p.m.
