Press release

Artist Harvee Riggs is having a show at the Westport Arts Center, with an opening tomorrow evening. Riggs specializes in mixed media box assemblages. He was profiled on Connecticut Art Scene as part of coverage of the 2006 City-Wide Open Studios.

According to his artist statement, "My mixed media works are attempts to create intuitively. Juxtaposing objects, typically within a box. I explore and discover what is possible and create the jamais vu, the never before seen. Unrelated objects acquired at different times and from different places, seemingly by chance, can be assembled into new, dynamic apparently inevitable relationships. The medium allows for an unconstrained freedom and produces a mystery of coincidence."
