Press release

City Gallery is pleased to invite four area artists to show their work in a mixed media exhibit, City Gallery Invitational. The artists are Sal Naclerio, Thomas Stavovy, Gregory Vershbow and Jonathan Waters. The exhibition dates are April 3—27.

In Sal Naclerio's paintings, which have a limited palette of black, gold, blue and red, the inspiration comes from his subconscious and natural surroundings. The paint is applied in thin layers similar to glazes.

In his monotypes, Thomas Stavovy derives his inspiration from process, where he seeks abstract forms that are in conversation with each other and the edge of the image. The relationships raise questions about time and change.

Gregory Vershbow's photographs, titled "Emerging," are formal studies of subjects ranging from antique maps to water teeming with eels. They explore how a subject moves in and out of optical clarity in different light environments. Vershbow has previously been profiled on Connecticut Art Scene.

In Jonathan Waters' wall pieces, which include drawing and sculpture, the edge becomes line, encompasses the mass, which simply changes visually as one passes, alternately revealing or hiding the whole.

The Opening Reception is Sat., Apr. 5, from 2—5 pm. In addition: Meet The Artists is Sun., Apr. 27, from 2—4 pm. The gallery is open Thursdays through Sundays 12—4 pm, or by appointment.
